IES Survey about Digital Barriers in North America
This survey is seeking a better understanding about barriers to digital technologies that are used to control luminaires in a lighting control system. While some of these technologies can be used to enable features beyond lighting controls, we are not focused on non-lighting components.
Responses are strictly confidential and will not be shared or associated with identifiable information at any time.
For the purposes of this survey:
- "DIGITAL" is meant to include digital communication enabled by digital drivers/nodes*, and sensors. Examples of industry standard protocols may include: DALI D4i, ANSI C137.4, DALI 2/DT6/DT8, DALI 1, DMX512, POE.
- "ANALOG" is meant to include analog control enabled by analog drivers and sensors, most frequently 0-10v or 1-10v. Examples of industry standard open protocols may include: ANSI C137.1, ANSI E1.3, C82.11-Annex A/ IEC 60929.
*NOTE: References to digital drivers below are intended to include POE nodes. The word "node" is not repeated each time, for brevity.
