Philips expands industry-leading outdoor LED offerings with new quality wall mount luminaires

June 21, 2012
Date Announced: 21 Jun 2012 San Marcos, TX – The new Quality LED Wall Mounted family of Luminaires (QLW) from Philips Wide-Lite combines two high performance wall sconces with energy saving LED technology in a classic, geometric design. The medium QLW-16G1 Series is based on the Philips LEDgine platform, which features best-of-breed Philips technologies such as industry leading LUXEON LEDs and Xitanium drivers.Available in two different wall-mount fixtures with similar aesthetic qualities at different elevated heights, the new QLW series delivers on the energy savings associated with LED. With only 13 total input watts delivering on 619 lumens, the QLW-7G1 is an energy efficient solution for mounting heights of 6-10 feet – making it ideally-suited for use over doorways, entranceways or other applications where its’ compact size may be beneficial. The QLW-16 is best for mounting heights of 10-15 feet, providing a comparable replacement for fixtures utilizing 150W HID technology. QLW-16G1 offers a 60,000 hour rated system life at 40°C. The QLW-16G1 series benefits from LEDGINE’s innovative optics, which provide superior uniformity, control glare and manage spill light. QLW-16G1 is available with Types II, III, IV as well as a Wall Throw distribution for additional wall washing capability. The LEDgine platform also offers the flexibility of a modular approach, which allows for different LED configurations, enabling QLW-16G1 to be tailored to a customer’s unique needs such as application and light output, giving lighting designers exceptional flexibility. This helps to ensure that light levels and light quality meet the application requirements, while protecting investment in the lighting system by allowing it to be expanded or adjusted as the lighting requirements for a particular environment evolve. The QLW series offers simple to advanced control options for added energy savings. The small QLW-7G1 unit features a photocontrol sensor for automatic dusk-to-dawn lighting. For increased energy savings, the medium QLW-16 can be combined with Philips Dynadimmer, a stand-alone programmable dimming system to further reduce energy consumption during off-peak periods. Additional product features include a 0-10V interface for full range dimming controls.QLW-16G1 is DLC Certified. Stocking program available.
