LEDs are dramatically changing the landscape of lighting, but keeping up with constantly developing technology can be a minefield for electrical engineers, specifiers and users alike. How do you work out what the real facts are from the myriad of claims that light source and luminaire manufacturers are making about this revolution in lighting?
Whitecroft Lighting has created a ‘back-to-basics’ training seminar, to help all users of this new technology. Designed to take the mystery out of LEDs, the seminar adopts a non-commercial approach to dispel the myths, whilst conveying practical knowledge to help installers, specifiers and users to make an informed choice.
