With this distinction of DLC QPL, the Osram ENCELIUM Lighting Control System is acknowledged as a cutting-edge, high-efficiency, commercial sector lighting solution. November 9, 2016 Author: Media Relations
11.09.2016Wilmington, MA - OSRAM, leading global lighting and technology company, today announced that its ENCELIUM Lighting Control System has been listed on the DesignLights Consortium (DLC) Qualified Products List (QPL) in the category of Networked Lighting Control (NLC) Systems. With this distinction of DLC QPL, the Osram ENCELIUM Lighting Control System is acknowledged as a cutting-edge, high-efficiency, commercial sector lighting solution. The award-winning ENCELIUM Lighting Control System is a scalable, wireless or wired lighting control system that enables facility managers to elevate the cost effectiveness and occupant experience of their lighting spaces with just a click of the mouse.
“The qualification from the DLC will allow users to make informed decisions on lighting control systems,” said Charles Piccirillo, group marketing manager of the Lighting Management Systems, Digital Systems unit at Osram, Americas region. “It highlights both Osram’s innovation in lighting and building sustainability, and also assists with the adoption of high-performing, energy-efficient commercial lighting solutions.”
The listing equips everyone from lighting designers, specifiers, contractors, building owners, and utility energy efficiency programs with a valuable resource to understand and evaluate networked lighting control systems. The DLC’s performance specification and QPL for NLC Systems provides a new resource to the lighting market and energy efficiency programs to understand, evaluate, and compare NLC Systems. To qualify as a QPL in the NLC Systems category, eligible systems must meet required system capabilities such as occupancy sensing, daylight harvesting, zoning and continuous dimming.
“The DLC is excited to see the ENCELIUM Lighting Control System qualified on the Networked Lighting Controls QPL. The QPL is reaching a critical mass of qualified systems – as the list continues to grow, utility companies and energy efficiency programs can implement more effective incentive programs and rebates for networked lighting controls technology,” said Levin Nock, CALC program manager at DLC.
