Philips to Launch Second Generation of Fortimo LED Spotlight Modules to Help Retailers Enhance the Customer Shopping Experience

Incorporating the latest technology innovations, the new generation Fortimo LED spotlight module (SLM) will offer increased quality of light and ease of design for luminaire manufacturers and technical specifiers.

The first wave of performance upgrades of the Philips Fortimo LED spotlight modules will be introduced in November, allowing manufacturers to implement the latest advances in LED efficiency, without having to change the driver or the dimensions of the LED module. This second generation will also include an extension of the portfolio, with options for higher lumen output, better CRI and warmer color temperatures making merchandise, particularly in retail environments look brighter, more vivid and attractive.

Wouter Boxhoorn, Marketing Manager for OEM Lighting Solutions for Retail, commented: “We are very excited to announce that a second generation of the Philips Fortimo SLM product range will be available soon.  Our spotlight solution has been particularly popular amongst fashion retailers and can be used as accent lighting to draw a customer’s eye to a certain product or area, or as a mini-downlight to create an inviting environment to shop in.”

Fortimo has been regarded as a milestone in LED technology - since the introduction of the Fortimo LED modules, technical specifiers and luminaire manufacturers within the retail sector have benefitted from this concept of design freedom to create distinctive designs, allowing them to differentiate from the competition.

Current and future generations of the Fortimo LED spotlight modules not only provide high-quality white light, but also offer a wide selection of lumen outputs, color temperatures and dimming options as well as a range of electronic drivers and thermal management options. Philips Fortimo LED spotlight modules continue to provide an excellent alternative to halogen and metal halide in retail lighting.
