Fortimo LED-2R system brings high-energy efficiency to linear lighting design

September 06, 2012 // By Christoph Hammerschmidt
Philips has developed the linear Fortimo LED 2R system, aiming at replacing conventional CFL lamps in a broad range of general lighting applications. Core elements of the Fortimo 2R products are two rows of high-voltage LED modules. When combined with suitable Xitanium drivers, the lamps can achieve up to 120lm/W at neutral white light color- significantly more that current T5 CFL lamps.

To guarantee highly efficient operation, Philips has optimized all members of the Fortimo LED product family for operation with Xitanium drivers for interior lighting. The product program comprises isolated an non-isolated drivers with analog control voltage input, with DALI interfaces and with fixed output power. Each driver can supply up to twelve LED line modules.

In addition, Philips fulfils the promise of sustainability: All physical dimensions, mountings, angular emission characteristics and light temperature will remain unchanged even for future efficiency improvements. This also refers to Xitanium drivers, enabling smooth replacements.

Fortimo LED systems are available now as modules with one, two, or three LED rows. Common denominator is a high-grade white light with a CRI of 80 or better. The modules can be employed in luminaires for general lighting in many application fields. Examples are offices, industry or retail stores where top-quality and efficient lighting solutions are required.
