Title
: Commercial Lighting Controls – The Path to Code Compliance and an Amazing User Experience

Abstract:

Say farewell to your toggle switches!  The future is here and like so many other things, lighting is becoming automated.  Driven by government mandated energy programs, lighting control requirements are becoming more stringent but also more useful.  During this presentation you’ll learn about the why and how of lighting controls as well as a look at what the future may have to offer.

Speaker: Douglas Braun is a lighting controls specialist



Biography:

Douglas Braun is a lighting controls specialist who has worked in the lighting industry for nearly 15 years.  His role is to help specifiers and installers meet energy code and performance requirements using lighting controls.

 

May 11: Tour of FOVI 3D

 

Location:5555 N. Lamar,Austin, Texas,United States 78751
Building: D-117

Time: 6:00 to 8:00 PM

RSVP (required):https://meetings.vtools.ieee.org/m/170652

Details:Light snacks and drinks will be provided courtesy of Fovi. Additional details in the Agendasection of the RSVP page.

Austin startup, FoVI3D is developing the building blocks required to bring light-field visualization to the world. From radiance image rendering to projecting the 3D aerial image, FoVI3D computes and projects spatially accurate 3D visuals without the need for eye tracking, goggles, or glasses. Moving beyond the current single perspective experience, FoVI3D’s approach allows for a collaborative environment for multiple viewers within the light-field display view volume. All parts of the light-field visualization pipeline will be on display and available for discussion.

Title
: Commercial Lighting Controls – The Path to Code Compliance and an Amazing User Experience

Abstract:

Modular construction of process and mechanical skids is becoming commonplace in onshore installations located in harsh or remote environments where construction and labor costs have a major impact on determining the method of construction and selection of equipment. By locating and wiring more equipment on a module, significant cost and schedule savings can be achieved when the module is brought to the site for final installation.

This paper will consider different design scenarios of modularized electrical systems in hazardous areas, and compare the cost savings as well as ease of installation, safety, construction and operations with modular installation methods of motor control centers in the hazardous area. Data from plants under design will be presented and compared for traditional plant design versus modular low voltage motor controls. The paper will also address the negative impacts that arise from this design and present input from a maintenance, control, safety and operations perspective.

Speaker: Nitish Saraf, Regional Sales Manager Global Projects at R. STAHL Inc.



Biography:

Nitish Saraf graduated from the University of Delhi, India in 2006 with a BSEE degree, and from the University of Texas at Austin in 2008 with a MSEE that included thesis work performed at ERCOT’s Operations Center in Taylor, TX from 2007 - 2008.  He worked as an Electrical Engineer at Bechtel Oil, Gas & Chemicals in Houston, TX from 2008 to 2012 during which he was responsible for various electrical scopes of work on new LNG plant design. In 2012, he began working at R. Stahl Inc., a global manufacturing and technology leader in the hazardous location business as a Business Development Specialist and is currently Regional Sales Manager for global capital projects and EPC’s. He is a member of the IEEE, and an author of previous IEEE conference and transaction papers. He is a registered Professional Engineer in the state of Texas.

Analog Newsletter

The electronic IEEE Central Texas Section newsletter, The Analog, provides news of many of the other IEEE activities in the Austin and San Antonio areas. If you are an IEEE Central Texas Section member, your subscription is provided automatically to the email address in your IEEE profile. If you are not a member, you may subscribe following the procedures provided at the The Analog Webpage.

Be advised that there is not a lot of traffic on this list intentionally. The list manager tries to keep it below 3 emails a month - The Analog, the mid-month reminder, and maybe an emergency announcement, but we prefer 2 emails a month .
