Come join us in learning all about PoE!

This seminar will give an overview of what PoE means, the current state of the technology and how it can be deployed in the context of LED lighting.

We will explore in detail how PoE nodes can be used to power and control luminaires as well as what some of the trade-offs are when converting conventional LED luminaires to a PoE-based approach. There will also be an analysis of what the current limitations and benefits of this technology are.

Finally, some recommendations will be made for the successful deployment of a PoE project in the context of integrating lighting.

This is an AIA accredited presentation (1 credit>

We are looking forward to your attendance!
