Lutron Electronics, a provider of wired and wireless lighting and shade control has announced that its Quantum Total Light Management System and Vive wireless system have been listed on the DesignLights Consortium (DLC) Qualified Products List (QPL) in the Networked Lighting Control Systems category. By meeting or exceeding the technical requirements, both Quantum and Vive systems are now eligible for utility rebates and incentives by DLC members.
“As more utilities build rebate programs for networked lighting controls, it is important that we have a range of systems available from an established industry leader like Lutron,” said Gabe Arnold, program manager with the DLC.
Quantum is a light management system that ties a complete line of lighting controls, motorized window shades, digital ballasts and LED drivers, and sensors under one software umbrella to control and monitor lights, shades, and energy use.
And, designed for retrofit applications, Lutron’s Vive is a flexible, scalable wireless lighting control system. Vive is now one of six networked lighting control solutions that meet all 19 DLC-qualifying capabilities.
“We are seeing now more than ever, DLC members will require a system that is listed on the QPL,” said Eric Lind, vice president of global specification at Lutron Electronics. “Lutron is proud to offer two intuitive, innovative solutions that will provide lasting value to the customer.”The QPL is designed to facilitate the widespread adoption of the technology by equipping utilities to optimize energy savings and integrate control systems into their incentive programs.
The QPL is designed to facilitate the widespread adoption of the technology by equipping utilities to optimize energy savings and integrate control systems into their incentive programs. The list is also a tool for facility managers, architects, specifiers, engineers, and contractors to evaluate and compare control systems for their projects and programs.
