“Acuity Brands is dedicated to supporting the Alliance’s mission to provide rapid adoption of safe direct current (DC) power distribution in commercial buildings,” said Mark Hand, Acuity Brands Director of New Products and Technology. “While our portfolio is already strong, we will continue to build on our offering of EMerge compliant LED luminaires to offer customers low-voltage options from our brands such as Peerless® and Gotham®.”
Acuity Brands is a Participating Member of the EMerge Alliance – an open industry association developing standards leading to the rapid adoption of DC power distribution. These innovative standards integrate interior infrastructures, power, controls and devices in a common microgrid platform to facilitate the hybrid use of AC and DC power throughout buildings for unprecedented design and space flexibility, greater energy efficiency and improved sustainability. Additionally, Acuity Brands low-voltage luminaires are compatible with Armstrong DC Flexzone™ Ceiling Grid Systems - the first ceiling suspension system that provides an infrastructure for the delivery of low-voltage DC power.
