MH Controls Corner:
PoE Lighting and Its Challenges

Each month, a member of our Lighting Controls Department  offers insight and advice about lighting controls. This month's article is brought to us by Mike Bogomolov, our Controls Engineering Supervisor.

The inevitable next frontier for the commercial lighting industry is controls integrated into light fixtures. It makes sense, as the controls industry has claimed an ever increasing footprint in lighting design, and both lighting and controls must coexist. Why not wrap it all up into a single package? In doing so, we can consolidate on delivery, installation, and maintenance of a lighting package for any given project, all of which lead to cost savings for the end user which is usually a main objective. Few options in the foreseeable future stand to provide this level of integration more than the concept of PoE (Power over Ethernet) lighting. However, as we all know, no concept goes to market without a slew of inherent problems that must first be addressed
