November Program Meeting

SPEAKER: Ben Cantu, Lumenwerx
A student of Architecture, Ben has over 30 years of experience in consulting to Architects, Lighting Designers, Engineers, Interior Designers, and Landscape Architects when specifying architectural lighting systems. Ben is currently the NYC/Southeast Sales Manger for Lumenwerx.

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 tradeoffs are when converting a conventional LED lighting system to a PoE-based approach. We will also analyze the current limitations and benefits of this technology. Finally, some recommendations will be made for the successful deployment of a PoE project in the context of integrating lighting.
