IES LEM-7-13 addresses lighting controls for energy management
By Alyssa Dalton
November 27, 2013 – The Illuminating Engineering Society of North America (IES) says it has published Lighting Controls for Energy Management (LEM-7-13) to address how “lighting controls play an essential role in all lighting systems, especially when used to enact various control strategies to satisfy visual needs of users and energy management needs of owners”.
The document is intended to help designers, users, commissioning agents, and other interested parties learn about energy-saving strategies, design considerations, equipment, communication protocols and the importance of commissioning for lighting control systems in both interior and exterior applications. It is available in print or as a PDF download from the IES at www.ies.org/store.
