The usage of LEDs helps reducing the internal heating and surface drying of the goods which results in less merchandise wastage. The individual modules are slim and unobtrusive, maximizing shelf space and making it easier for staff to load shelves.Affinium LED Freezer Module The new Affinium LED Freezer Module (LFM300) is designed to be installed in new freezers as well as to replace less energy-efficient fluorescent lamps in existing cabinets. It offers excellent total cost of ownership – a massive reduction in energy consumption - up to 70% - and a tenfold reduction in lamp replacement turnover – with a fast payback.Its delivery of uniform, bright and consistent light, providing an improved visual impression of both the merchandise on display and the entire freezer offers improved product visibility and presentation. The module’s optical system prevents the LED light source from being directly visible, thereby reducing disturbing glare. Sustainable solutionsPhilips’ new Affinium LED Cooler and Freezer Modules represent a significant advance in sustainability thanks to their lower energy consumption, which translates into a measurable reduction in CO2 emissions for supermarkets. Their modular and sustainable design also reduces waste while eliminating use of hazardous substances such as mercury and lead.Both the Affinium LED Cooler and Freezer modules are available for supply now.
