Philips unveils top lighting products
Dubai, April 16, 2012
Philips showcased its latest range of lighting innovations for professionals and consumers at the world’s leading lighting and architecture fair, Light + Building 2012 which opened yesterday in Frankfurt, Germany.
Announcing the launch, Frans van Houten, the chief executive officer of Philips, said, "LED Lighting plays a unique role in creating meaningful experiences for people and delivers significant energy savings."
“Today we are proud to present a broad array of LED lighting solutions designed to create inspiring ambiences both in buildings and outdoors while reducing energy consumption and operational costs,” he stated.
A full switch to the latest LED lighting would provide energy savings of up to 80 per cent in many applications, and an average of 40 per cent for all lighting, he explained.
LED technology also offers unprecedented possibilities to digitally control light, to create intelligent and dazzling light experiences.
Lighting accounts for 20 per cent of global electricity use, while public spaces and commercial buildings alone represent 60 per cent of lighting-based electricity use, he added.
At Light + Building 2012, Philips presents intelligent LED solutions and controls that offer efficient and flexible lighting for streets, buildings and shops, when and where it is needed.
These innovative solutions enable substantial energy savings while making streets safer and buildings more comfortable, and creating more attractive shopper experiences to drive sales.
Also recognizing that people have varied preferences in light tone, Philips has developed the unique DimTone feature that allows light to be adjusted simultaneously in intensity and color, from bright to warm light, to create the ambience of choice by means of a dimmer.
The Philips’ innovation highlights at the ongoing expo include:
•CityTouch intelligent light management system for city-wide street lighting
•Light Balancing solution from Philips and Somfy that intelligently manages the balance of artificial lighting and natural daylight in offices
•Extended range of Philips’ innovative PureDetail LED solution for fashion retail
•75W LED replacement bulb for both consumer and professional applications
•Nick-Knack design luminaire for homes based on the Italian animated series ‘’La Linea’’
•A new high performance Lumiblade OLED panel for general lighting applications
According to van Houten, the new range of LED bulbs demonstrates Philips’ leadership in the technology.
"They are designed to emit warm white light similar to traditional lamps, with dramatic energy savings (up to 90 per cent less energy consumption) and a lifespan of up to 25 years," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
