DC Microgrids
​Compatibility with Armstrong DC FlexZone™


OSRAM SYLVANIA is proud to partner with Armstrong Ceilings in promoting plug-and-play flexibility in direct current (DC) power applications.  Several OSRAM LED lighting products and Armstrong’s low voltage DC FlexZone™ ceiling systems have been EMerge Alliance® registered.   Both companies are founding members of the EMerge Alliance and the new offerings are intended to support the organization’s vision for Net Zero energy use in commercial buildings.

DC FlexZone™ is the only ceiling suspension system that provides an infrastructure for the delivery of low voltage direct current power based on the EMerge Alliance 24 Vdc Occupied Space Standard.  The Next Generation Luminaires award winning OSRAM RLC22 LED 2’x2’ luminaire is now available in an EMerge Alliance registered version that is compatible with the Armstrong DC FlexZone system.  These may be coupled with registered interface modules to create an intelligent control strategy using ENCELIUM Light Management Systems, allowing easy configuration, control and monitoring of the lighting system to maximize energy savings.

All EMerge registered light fixtures from OSRAM SYLVANIA are specifically engineered to physically and electrically integrate directly with Armstrong Ceiling’s EMerge registered DC powered ceiling system.  The registration assures compatibility of the connectorized plug-and-play pre-wired fixtures with the power distributing ceiling grid and greatly simplifies their initial installation and future moves and changes.
