An overview of the capabilities of tunable white luminaires, differing light spectrum controls, and the related design challenges.
About this Course
The IES offers Educational Webinars throughout the year, purposefully spanning a broad range of topics and speaker expertise. Tunable White Controls was a live webinar, now available as an archived webinar and CEU course.
Description: This webinar takes participants through the different types of light spectrum control, discusses the color tuning abilities of tunable white luminaires and their design challenges and concludes with how you can reduce risk and meet your client’s sequence of operations requirements on color tuning projects.
By the end of this course learners will be able to...
1. Describe the fundamental categories of spectrum control with LEDs.
2. Analyze the color tuning features of tunable white fixtures.
3. Identify challenges with tunable white technology.
4. Evaluate the feasibility of meeting a sequence of operations with various fixture types.
