Philips LED Lighting Solutions Earn Four Next Generation Luminaire Awards In Outdoor Category

Solutions from Lumec, Philips Color Kinetics, Wide-Lite, and Crescent/Stonco Win Coveted Spots

MONTREAL, Feb. 14, 2013 /CNW/ - Further cementing the company's position as an industry leader in LED technology, Philips has earned four Next Generation Luminaire™ (NGL) awards in the outdoor category at the prestigious, fourth-annual NGL Solid State Lighting (SSL) Design Competition.  Solutions from Philips Lumec, Color Kinetics, Wide-Lite and Crescent/Stonco were recognized for the sleekness of their LED design, as well as their color quality and light uniformity enabled by Philips LUXEON LED technology.

Held during the Strategies in Light Conference, the competition is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), the Illuminating Engineering Society, and the International Association of Lighting Designers and recognizes excellence in the design of energy-efficient LED luminaires for general illumination in commercial lighting applications.  The goal of the NGL competitions is to make it easier for lighting designers and specifiers to find LED lighting products that are worthy of specification. NGL-recognized products have to measure up on many fronts, including suitability and quality, not just energy-efficiency. Of the 176 products submitted for evaluation, only 37 were recognized in ten categories.

Earning "Recognized" or "Notable" status were four Philips LED lighting solutions:

Streetscape Lighting Category
  • Lumec SoleCity Small LED Street and Area Luminaire - Based on the Philips LEDgine platform, SoleCity also offers the flexibility of a modular approach, which allows for different LED configurations, enabling the systems to be tailored to a customer's unique needs such as application and light output. Research, development and manufacturing of Philips Lumec products is done locally in Quebec, ensuring the highest Canadian standards are met.

Canopy Category
  • Wide-Lite Mini 300 LED Gen-2 Gas Station Canopy - A seamless replacement for HID, the Mini 300 requires no new wiring, simplifying upgrades for owners, while reducing energy and maintenance costs by as much as 50 percent for gas station owners.

Wall Mounted Area Lighting
  • Crescent/Stonco LytePro16 - Using just 40 watts of power or a 50% reduction in energy usage over similarly sized HID non-LED luminaires, the LytePro16 is a compact luminaire designed for exterior wall mounting.

Façade/Structure Lighting Category
  • Color Kinetics eW Graze MX Powercore -  At up to 696 lumens per foot, eW Cove MX Powercore delivers the highest light output in the line of solid white linear cove lights, rivaling the light output of T5 and 2 T8 strip lights in cove applications.

"We continuously push the boundaries of LED technology to ensure we understand our customer's challenges and we can meet their exacting needs," said Bruno Biasiotta, President and CEO of Philips Lighting.  "This is the fourth consecutive year that we have been recognized by the NGL competition, which serves as a testament to our commitment to innovation, sustainability and leadership in the development of innovative, energy-efficient and effective solid-state lighting."
