Power management company Eaton, a 2015 ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year, will provide a sneak peek of its new ReSource Center at LIGHTFAIR® International, the world’s largest annual architectural and commercial lighting trade show and conference, held May 4-7 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City. Visitors to Eaton’s booth (#1157) can get an exclusive inside look at the lighting innovator’s complimentary 24/7 online hub launching later this year that will provide designers, architects, builders, students and more with lighting ideas and tools to move projects from inspiration to execution.

“Eaton is at the forefront of an exciting transition taking place in the industry today, providing the capabilities for customers to capitalize on energy-efficient lighting-emitting diode (LED) solutions while also gaining more control over their space,” said Mark Eubanks, president, Eaton’s Cooper Lighting Division. “Our ability to control, measure and monitor a space positions Eaton’s platform as a major hub for data, extending resources for customers to build and collect information for greater flexibility and cost savings.”

In addition to previewing its new ReSource Center, Eaton will showcase its LED technology and scalable control systems at the show, including its award-winning WaveStream™ LED technology and AccuLED Optics™ system, as well as its Fifth Light Addressable Lighting Control System, which allows for easy management of an entire lighting system to maximize a building’s operational efficiency, while providing a personalized lighting experience to the building’s occupants.

During LIGHTFAIR International’s keynote luncheon on Monday, May 4, from 12:15-1:45 p.m., Eaton will announce the winners of the 38th Annual SOURCE Awards, its national lighting design competition. The competition, which began in 1977, focuses on furthering the understanding, knowledge and function of lighting as a primary element in design and requires the predominant use of lighting and controls products from Eaton’s lighting business. The SOURCE Awards recognize both professional designers and students. Four professional design firms and six student winners will be recognized for their achievement.

Eaton will host guest speaker Dr. Scott Wade, technical manager for DALI, on Wednesday, May 6, from 2:00-2:45 p.m. at its booth. Dr. Wade will discuss the DALI standard and the improvements made to the standard as part of the newly introduced DALI version 2.
