Oreon has announced that its water-cooled LED fixtures are now qualified to receive the DesignLights Consortium (DLC) listing.
The DLC is a non-profit organization improving energy efficiency, lighting quality, and the human experience in the built environment. Utility companies, energy efficiency programs, manufacturers, lighting designers, building owners, and government entities collaborate to create solutions for a better future with better lighting.
Due to a lack of testing methods and standards, and testing requirements for liquid-cooled lamps, DLC was unable to list Oreon on their Qualified Product List (QPL).
For the past years Oreon has been in regular contact with DLC to discuss a set of technical requirements that would correctly reflect the properties of water-cooled light fixtures. This resulted in DLC adding liquid-cooled fixtures to their Technical Requirements for LED-based Horticultural Lighting Version 2.1, in Sept 2021. In parallel, Oreon had intensive talks with accredited labs to prepare their facilities for testing performance of water-cooled fixtures according to DLC specifications. Oreon’s fixtures are tested against the UL8800 safety standard, and bear the ETL mark proving that they meet all relevant safety standards. Besides that, the high efficient Oreon fixtures amply comply with the DLC requirements, resulting in the Monarch top light fixture receiving a DLC listing.
