Philips Fortimo LED high brightness module Gen2 (HBMt) for outdoor white light applications

June 27, 2012
Date Announced: 27 Jun 2012 The new Fortimo LED HBMt module offers a choice of 4000 and 6000 lumen in the same form-factor. Both lumen packages are available in cool white (5700K) and neutral white (4000K) light.When the technology platform was released in 2011, Philips committed to make Fortimo LED high brightness modules Zhaga compliant. All the necessary adjustments in dimensions have been made to ensure that the Fortimo LED HBMt is based on Zhaga Book 4 specifications. Additionally, the module delivers a dramatic improvement in heat management compared to Gen1. Thermal specifications have improved from a Tcase of 75 °C to a Tcase of 85 °C. As a Fortimo product, the module is future-proof– LED efficiency improvements are incorporated into the platform, so the mechanical, electrical and optical specifications will not change.All Fortimo LED modules strive to lead in energy efficiency and Fortimo LED HBMt features the latest Luxeon R LEDs from Lumileds, delivering up to 115 lm/W on a module level. When the Fortimo LED HBMt is combined with a Xitanium LED Xtreme driver, the remarkable energy savings and CO2 reductions achieved with LED lighting solutions are extended even further with dimming.The small form factor and high-lumen output of the Fortimo LED HBMt makes it a virtual LED lamp- the compact light emitting area works with traditional reflector optics. This allows luminaire creators to realise full benefits of a LED light engine without the complexity and high R&D costs associated with individual lens optics. The module is designed for outdoor applications such as road lighting, flood and area lighting, urban street lighting and tunnels. The compact size and high CRI also make it an excellent replacement for high-wattage metal halide lamps in indoor applications as highbay warehouses and retail environments. The four Fortimo LED HBMt product types as well as the system Xitanium LED drivers are commercially available now.
