This course starts by exploring lamp types, their characteristics and capabilities. A strong emphasis is placed upon the science behind the 'art' of lighting. Other subjects covered include colour temperature, power law, series vs. parallel wiring, voltage drop and cabling sizing. All technical discussions reference the BS7671 electrical standards.

After discussing the theory of lighting the course moves on to a practical session. This includes testing of different dimming control types such as resistive dimming, LED, DALI and DMX.

The course is for engineers and designers that are new to lighting control. As such, it is a technically focused day.


By the end of the day students will...

Understand different lamp types
Identify the different transformer and ballast types
Provide fundamental science needed for lighting control system design
Understand different dimming control methods
