The BUG System – A New Way to Control Stray Light From Outdoor Luminaires

The BUG rating system has been created to replace the cutoff system of classifying outdoor luminaires. B (backlight) U (uplight) G (glare) are all scored on a scale of 0-5, with 5 being the highest amount of maximum zonal lumens emitted from the fixture in a direction and 0 being the lowest. Backlight consists of the amount of light in the BL, BM, BH and BVH zones, which is any light that is shining in the opposite direction of the area intended to be lit. Uplight is measured in UL and UH, which cause skyglow and wasted energy respectively. Glare is a measure of the FH, FVH, BH and BVH zones, which cause discomfort and disability glare.

Lighting Controls for IECC 2015

The requirements in the 2015 IECC for lighting control systems have changed and are greatly expanded from what was required in the 2012 version of the IECC. Automatic daylight harvesting, more specific occupancy sensor requirements, and specific controls testing requirements are a few of the changes that will greatly impact controls systems designs. MH has prepared a presentation that provides a summary of all the requirements in this code. This information will be invaluable to every member of the design and construction team for any given project.

Structuring a Solution

The days of line voltage AC wiring to luminaires may be coming to an end – at least for some applications. It’s all about the LED fixture. A “structured wiring” solution makes sense: a system that centralizes drivers (among other components) in a panel or closet, with Cat 5 cables connecting the drivers to individual fixtures for both low-voltage DC and control functionality.
