Amerlux Announces Encore Webinars on the Evolution of Lighting

Amerlux has announced that it will deliver four live webinars to help stakeholders keep pace with an industry that has turned into the new tech sector.

Amerlux, which launched its webinar series, “eLumenNation,” earlier this year, will present again its first four webinars to accommodate demand. The webinars have been registered with the American Institute of Architects Continuing Education Systems (AIA/CES) for continuing professional education. Credits earned on completion of this program will be reported to CES Records for AIA members.

“There’s no better time for a series of encore presentations about how once-stodgy lighting has become the new tech sector—in addition to earning much-needed CE credits,” says Bill Plageman, Amerlux’s VP of Marketing and Product Development. “If you’re a procrastinator who wants to learn about where the industry is going, our webinar series is time well spent at the end of 2019.”

The webinar will discuss how the standard was developed by integrating architectural design and building management practices with research on environmental health, behavioral factors, health outcomes and risk factors. (This webinar is AIA 1 LU/HSW certified.)

Amerlux plans to introduce six new installments as part of its growing eLumenNation webinar series in 2020.

People-First Lighting Unveiled at LightFair

Amerlux’s eLumenNation webinar series isn’t the only type of innovation that the company has produced in 2019.

In the first half of the year, for example, the LED manufacturer introduced a number of lighting solutions at LightFair 2019.

When Amerlux presented AERUS, editors from BUILDINGS.com called the glare-free illumination the event’s top trend. As the cure for poor office lighting, AERUS delivers indirect lighting for commercial and institutional settings. Leveraging anidolic optics, this linear system can hang a mere 12 inches off the ceiling without hotspots. The wide distribution also means fixtures can hang 10-12 feet off-center, requiring fewer fixtures than most linear systems, while still delivering IES recommended light levels at the desk. AERUS is a solution to alleviate glare and bad lighting in offices.

In addition, Amerlux featured its first generation of Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) lighting solutions. With this technology, power will run through the same Category 5 enhanced (CAT5e) cabling as data, turning lighting into an IT matter.

Amerlux also showcased its Rook 3.5-inch Square Pendant with the 90 CRI chip. The Rook, which is a solution for open ceilings as a surface-mount pendant or a pendant with a remote driver, offers color, comfort, control and configuration.

Other examples of 2019 innovation include:

  • Slots and Dots, which is a configurable track light system that creates visual ambience for hospitality and retail environments. The one-inch-wide track features magnetic attachments, so light sources can be snapped in and out as needed. With this track system, users can change the lighting in a room between events with ease.
  • Etch 2- by 2-foot recessed ceiling panels, which were co-developed with architecture firm Gensler Associates. The lighting solution delivers a sense of architectural style to an area, unlike traditional drop-ins.
