As a result of this course you will be able to:

  • Analyze the pros and cons of various lighting technologies in order to decide what is best in specific applications.
  • Determine which LED high bays to select when it is decided they are the best fit for a particular situation.
  • Explain how to use task ambient lighting for improved productivity and energy savings.
  • Describe how to reduce maintenance with long-life light sources and a reduction in the number of lamps and lamp types.

Who should attend?
Building owners, lighting retrofit and electrical contractors, energy program design and implementation professionals, lighting designers and consultants, commercial building energy advocates, interior designers, property managers, facility managers, manufacturers, dealers and distributors, utility representatives, architects, engineers and anyone with basic knowledge and interest in industrial lighting.

Test your knowledge of industrial lighting

High bays are the focus of this course, however hooded industrials, strips, troffers and even some specialized exterior lights commonly used in industrial and warehouse applications will be explored. We’ll weigh the pros and cons of high lumen full and reduced wattage T8s, full and reduced wattage T8s, T5HOs, T8VHOs, electronically ballasted ceramic metal halide, induction, plasma and LEDs. Solutions that address concerns such as wet location and explosion proof lighting will be discussed, as well as wired and wireless controls. Participants will also learn the benefits of spectrally enhanced lighting.

During a classroom activity, we’ll analyze various lighting solutions to determine the best fit for specific industrial and warehouse settings. This activity will cover color rendering index and kelvin, system efficacy at optimal temperatures, lamp temperature and light output, ballast issues, visual impacts, special concerns, control flexibility, initial parts and labor costs, lamp life and maintenance and mercury and lead.
