WILMINGTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Osram, a global high-tech lighting company, today announced that its ENCELIUM EDGE™ Standalone Wireless Light Management System has been listed on the DesignLights Consortium (DLC) Qualified Products List (QPL) in the category of Networked Lighting Control Systems. With this distinction of DLC-QPL, the ENCELIUM EDGE system is acknowledged as a simple yet powerful solution for small- to mid-sized commercial spaces seeking code compliance and energy savings. It is simple to specify, install, setup and manage using the ENCELIUM EDGE Mobile Setup App. No floor plan is required and pre-set configurations initialize lighting control quickly. It is upgradable via software to the ENCELIUM® Networked Light Management System when advanced functionality is required.
“The ENCELIUM EDGE light management system is a simple yet comprehensive solution specifically designed to meet the unique requirements of small- to mid-sized commercial spaces,” said Chuck Piccirillo, head of product, lighting networks and services, Osram Digital Lighting Systems, Americas Region. “Additionally, the ENCELIUM EDGE system addresses market feedback about the complexity of many lighting control systems and the need to simplify specification, installation, setup and management without losing key functionality. Market-driven design, coupled with DLC qualification, represents why the ENCELIUM EDGE system is the preferred choice over other lighting control solutions for this market.”
The DLC listing equips everyone from lighting designers, specifiers, contractors, building owners and utility energy efficiency program managers with a valuable resource to understand and evaluate networked light management systems. The DLC’s performance specification and QPL for Networked Lighting Control (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.
“With 47 percent average energy savings and a host of additional benefits for customers, utilities across North America are increasingly targeting Networked Lighting Controls with new financial incentives and rebates for their customers,” said Gabe Arnold, Technical Director with the DLC. “DLC-qualified NLCs have been reviewed to meet minimum performance standards required by utilities for financial incentive and rebate eligibility.”
