DLC Releases Networked Lighting Controls Standard V2.0
The DesignLights Consortium (DLC) has released the final Networked Lighting Controls Technical Requirements Version 2.0. These final Technical Requirements incorporate two rounds of stakeholder feedback, as well as thorough discussions held at the DLC Lighting Controls Summit.
Major changes to the Technical Requirements include: Addition of Exterior System Requirements; Refinement and standardization of definitions and acceptable responses; New reported system information, including API and characteristics, color tuning, start-up and configuration party, and security information
Manufacturers of systems that have been listed on the QPL prior to June 1, 2017 must requalify and relist their systems against the revised V2.0 Technical Requirements. Manufacturers must submit all new applications and supporting references by June 30, 2017 for their system to remain on the QPL.
Systems found to meet the new requirements will be listed with a "fully qualified" status according to Technical Requirements V2.0
Systems found not to meet the new requirements will be allowed a one-year listing grace period and will remain on the QPL with a "fully qualified" status according to Technical Requirements V1.02 until May 31, 2018.
