Control Workshop

February 12, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 1:00 pm


February 12 2016, 8:00 AM – 1:00 PM · BC Hydro – Edmonds Building · Illuminating Engineering Society – British Columbia Section · Details

In this new era of LED lighting and electronic component, lighting designer, interior design, electrical engineer but most of all end-users need to deal with a new layer of system of complexity to control its lighting.

IESBC is offering a Control Workshop in February. Join us to learn more about the following topics:

–    DALI Control System

–    Centralized Versus Decentralized Control System

–  BMS and Integrated Control System

Andrei Ianos – Eaton Corp (National Sales Manager)

Andrei has spent his entire career focused exclusively on lighting controls products and applications.  As one of the early members of the team at Fifth Light Technology, he contributed to the success of this pioneering digital, web-based lighting controls company.  Two acquisitions later, he is now the National Sales Manager for Eaton’s Lighting Systems and Solutions Business in Canada, representing the largest controls product offering by any single manufacturer.  Andrei holds a bachelor degree in electrical engineering and management and a masters of applied science in power electronics from McMaster University.


Recent years have seen an explosion in both the number and complexity of lighting controls applications.  With new products and control methodologies entering the market at an increasing rate, and the emergence of more stringent energy codes, it can be a challenge to keep up to date.  Coupled with the rapid adoption of LED lighting and converged solutions, the result is a complete shift in the way lighting and control projects are implemented.  This session will describe the difference between conventional 0-10V systems and addressable lighting control systems address open and proprietary protocol systems and dispel some of the biggest myths surrounding addressable systems


  • Describe the differences between designing and wiring a traditional relay or 0-10V lighting control system and designing and wiring an addressable lighting control system.
  • Compare the ways in which traditional and addressable lighting control systems equip a space to save energy through time scheduling, daylighting, occupancy/vacancy sensing, and personal control.
  • Differentiate between a DALI lighting control system and other addressable lighting control systems and explain how DALI components can further improve the energy efficiency of the lighting system.
  • Dispel the biggest myths surrounding a DALI lighting control system and explore which of the latest energy codes can be satisfied with a DALI lighting control system.

Ken Sword – LUTRON Electronics Canada Inc.

Ken Sword is currently the National Specification Sales Manager for LUTRON Electronics Canada Inc.  Ken is responsible for specification sales of commercial lighting and shading systems in Canada.  Ken has over 20 years of industry experience in the commercial and industrial lighting industry, with a focus on lighting control systems and lamp/ballast/driver systems.  Through his career he has held roles in Sales, Marketing, Product Management, Standards development, and Applications engineering.   Ken holds a diploma in Electrical Engineering Technology from Humber College of Applied Arts and Technology.  He is also a member of the IESNA.

ABSTRACT: –    Centralized Versus Decentralized Control System

As lighting control systems continue to evolve, the system ‘architecture’ can take many forms.  In this session, Ken will review and contrast the application, design/layout, installation, and performance of both centralized and decentralized Lighting Control system applications.  This session will also identify the lighting control strategies realized by these system applications and the impacts on the specifier, installer, and the end-user.


  • Attendees will be able to describe the functional differences between centralized and decentralized lighting control systems
  • Attendees will be able to analyze the project requirements relevant to selecting the appropriate system.
  • Attendees will be able to identify the lighting control strategies that will have the greatest impact on the end-user.
  • Attendees will be able to compare the applications for each system, and specify the most appropriate solution
