    October 15, 2013

    Somerset, NJ – Philips, the world leader in lighting and LED innovation, has been recognized by the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES)’s 2013 Progress Committee for 14 innovative lighting solutions which have been introduced over the past year. Included in this year’s report are Philips hue, the company’s revolutionary new connected lighting system and the EvoKit, which can turn a traditional 2x4 fluorescent troffher into an LED system in under 5 minutes. Moreover, the company was recognized for innovative technologies such as SpaceWise, which brings intelligence to luminaires, and Optifuse, which provides channel optics that can increases lumen output at the system level.


    "Being recognized by a prestigious industry association like the IES validates our commitment to LED innovation and traditional technologies that can provide energy savings and, in both cases, the best possible light quality for diverse applications," said Arif Quraishi, vice president of Philips Lighting Americas.  "From LED lamps that can mimic an incandescent’s warm dimming, to digitized systems for the home or office, to systems that can be installed in under 5 minutes, we are providing LED solutions that are easy to adopt and offer superior light quality and energy savings."


    Philips products in this year’s report include:

    • Calculite Evolution 3" LED – The latest LED downlight from Philips Lightolier delivers efficacies of over 75lm/W.
    • BoldPlay – LED luminaire that allows row spacing to be pushed to 20’o.c., with energy densities as low as 0.45W/ft2, delivering 106 lm/W and maintaining optimal light levels for ceiling and work plane uniformity.
    • DuaLED with SpaceWise Technology – Recessed LED luminaire achieving lighting power densities of 0.5 to 0.85 Watts per square foot. Integrated SpaceWise Technology provides intelligence and dimming capabilities tuned to specific applications for deeper energy savings.
