Philips Introduces Innovative Fortimo LED Downlight Module (DLM) Flex

Royal Philips, the global leader in lighting, today announced the availability of its new Fortimo LED Downlight Module (DLM) Flex range that gives luminaire manufacturers flexibility in the choice of LED module housing when designing downlight luminaires for offices, corridors and meeting areas in commercial buildings. The new module is also more energy efficient than its predecessor.

The new module also offers best in class lumen maintenance performance which means that the lumen output of the Fortimo LED DLM Flex depreciates less than any other module available in the market today.

Luminaire manufacturers now have the choice of three different form factors when using the Philips Fortimo LED DLM Flex.

Form Factors:
•    LED board
•    LED board in combination with shallow housing to create less bulky downlights
•    LED board in combination with high housing, that matches the dimensions of the current Fortimo LED DLM Gen5 module, enabling an easy upgrade

The new module is 15% more energy efficient than its predecessor, the Fortimo LED DLM Gen5 module. It also offers the choice to either select a specific voltage or current combination (known as ‘’Rset’’) to achieve the desired lumen output or a higher level of energy efficiency.

Luminaire manufacturers can also choose from a wider choice of Philips LED drivers that operate with the new Fortimo LED DLM Flex. This freedom of choice allows them to select the most suitable LED driver for the luminaire design, based on performance or cost considerations.

The Philips Fortimo LED DLM Flex is available for ordering in all European markets. For additional information please visit www.philips.com/technology. Samples for testing and design-in purposes can be ordered via the Philips Technology web shop: http://oemwebshop.philips.com
