Philips Second Generation Fortimo LED Spotlight Modules Now Available

The second generation Fortimo SLM offers performance upgrades of up to100 lm/W of the modules, improved color consistency (up to 3 SDCM), and is also more energy efficient. These upgrades will help to make retail environments look even brighter, more vivid and attractive, inspiring customers and help drive purchases.

The upgraded Fortimo SLM modules will offer the following advancements:
• High CRI up to 95 combined with tight color consistency
• Excellent lumen maintenance of 70% at 50khrs at 75C
• System efficiency resulting up to 90 Lm/W

This new generation also makes design-in even easier with the use of the specular reflectors to create excellent beam homogeneity with an innovative silicone dome.

The central promise of the Philips Fortimo LED product range is constant innovation within a fixed format and includes a standardized optical interface and standardized lumen packages. This also applies to the new generation of Fortimo LED spot light modules. The new Fortimo LED SLM guarantees fixed lumen output and light distribution, is compliant with upcoming industry standards when it comes to standardized optical, mechanical, electrical and thermal interface, and is backwards compatible with the previous SLM generation.

Wouter Boxhoorn, Marketing Manager for OEM Lighting Solutions for Retail, commented: “We recognize that ease of design-in, use and maintenance are fundamental considerations for technical specifiers and manufacturers when developing luminaires. These new spotlight innovations have been designed to make it less complicated to handle performance upgrades of LED modules.”

The spotlight modules come with a wide range of electronic drivers and thermal management options, reducing cooling costs by up to 40% and increasing system efficacy by up to 30%. In expanding the portfolio, the second generation Fortimo SLM also includes an additional module range with a color temperature of 2700K, which can be applied to various retail application areas to create new atmospheres and scenes.

With minimal maintenance, yet maximum effect, this latest innovation from Philips provides an easy LED technology upgrade for lighting in the retail sector.
