Light & lighting of the work place is in an interesting place. It is now recognised that indoor electric lighting needs to aspire to deliver all the subtle qualities of daylight. The visual acuity of the space user is also a variable that needs consideration. Luminaire technology is available today to address these deliverables but typically by using more energy. The opposite side of this argument is the requirement for buildings to work towards and achieve net Zero Carbon by 2050. Energy legislation trumps lighting quality standards and both subjects are equally important, so some lateral thinking is needed to balance the design outcome. This presentation explores the latest version of BS EN 12464-1, the key changes and some suggestions to support NZC outcomes.

Ping Yao, CEO of Optigo Networks and Chris Goodman, Senior BMS Technician of Coventry University
BACnet Building Automation Systems (BAS) are growing in importance and complexity. Unfortunately, BAS are often incorrectly configured or underperforming. Such problems can lead to loss in energy savings, incorrect reporting and premature failures. This webinar will start with an overview of three (3) fundamental topics: BACnet routes, BBMD's and Denial-of-Service. After these fundamental topics, the presenters will discuss common issues in BACnet BAS systems, and how these can be identified and fixed using Optigo's Visual BACnet software product. There will be opportunities for audience questions and comments. Throughout the presentation, AUE member Chris Goodman, will assist with real-world examples as see at Coventry University.
