Philips LED luminaire can reduce energy use by 50%

Philips Lighting Company's new Low Bay LED Luminaire is designed for use in applications where widely distributed, glare-free, white light is required.

The new Low Bay Luminaire features LEDs and is designed for new construction or retrofitting areas where older, less efficient lighting systems are installed.

Luminaire's clean design and optics provide excellent visibility and has the benefit of improving safety and reduces energy use by up to 50%. In addition to the significant energy savings LEDs can offer over older, existing technologies, LEDs provide an instant on/off capability that could be used with activity sensors. The new Low Bay LED Luminaires can be used in factories and production facilities as well as parking garages, warehouses, gymnasiums and hangars.

Philips Low Bay LED Luminaire features long life and energy efficiency in an easy to install, simple format that requires no special wiring or ballast. Designed with energy savings in mind, the new Luminaire also provides cool white light and high color rendering, all the traits necessary for good visibility. No warm up is needed.

LEDs in this Luminaire, says Philips, have an average rated life of 50,000 hours, more than twice the life of the metal halide lamps commonly used in typical Low Bay applications. In addition to the 50% energy savings, there is less maintenance cost associated with new Luminaire and less heat generated than in existing metal halide Luminaires. This can save on air conditioning costs in enclosed spaces.

The new Low Bay Luminaire is backed by a 3-year Philips warranty. Philips Lighting is a division of Philips Electronics North America Corporation, an affiliate of Royal Philips Electronics.
