An LED lighting innovation from Philips Lighting has been recognised for
product design excellence at the 2015 Red Dot Awards program.
One of the most important global competitions for product design, the
Red Dot awards are selected by a jury of renowned specialists from all over the
world. A Red Dot award is an international seal of quality, creative competence
and design excellence.
This year’s Red Dot Awards saw Royal Philips take home an unprecedented
49 awards. The intelligent connected GreenUp LED Highbay, now available in
Australia, picked up a Red Dot for high design quality.
Designed for both new projects and retrofits, Philips’ GreenUp LED
Highbay is a lightweight contemporary LED lighting system for industrial
warehouses featuring a sheet metal construction and advanced light sensor
Leveraging Philips’ expertise in LED luminaires as well as systems
solutions, the Philips GreenUp Highbay represents a new era in warehouse
lighting with its integrated design combining a controller, a sensor and a luminaire
in a single unit. The LED luminaire offers wireless capabilities and control
without the complexities and installation demands associated with traditional
controlled lighting systems.
Key features of the GreenUp LED Highbay luminaires include point-to-point
retrofit replacement allowed for conventional fluorescent T5 and conventional
high-bay light fittings; energy savings of up to 75% compared to traditional
Philips HID 400W high-bays and up to 54% versus traditional Philips T5 HO 4x54W
high-bays; integrated intelligent controls for occupancy and daylight
detection, as well as wireless zoning achieving additional energy savings; and optical
lens with low glare (UGR17) and accurate colour (CRI85) combined with three
optic lens design options (wide beam, narrow beam or high rack optic beam) to
suit diverse application requirements.
The GreenUp LED Highbay also enables easy configuration of warehouse
zones by facility managers to match occupation and routing density for optimal
space design and utilisation. Any rezoning can be done via remote control
without the need for specialised devices or technicians, shortening design and
planning periods and reducing overall cost of ownership.
