LIGHTFAIR, Las Vegas, Nevada — New, highly efficient solid-state lighting solutions for the
general lighting market are now available with the North American debut of Philips Fortimo and
Lexel downlight modules using LUXEON Rebel power LEDs. Both modules, with accompanying
thermal and power systems, enable lighting OEMs to quickly and easily equip the architectural
and specification communities with complete white and tunable downlight solutions. Fortimo
modules can potentially reduce energy consumption by as much as 50% compared to CFL and
Lexel modules can deliver perfectly controllable illumination.
The Fortimo DLM 1100 uses 18 royal-blue LUXEON
Rebel LEDs and a remote phosphor lens at the top
of a mixing chamber to create a white-light module
delivering 1100 lumens of light output with an
efficiency of 62 lm/W. A second version of the
Fortimo module delivers 2000 lm at 45 lm/W.
Initially introduced with a 4000K correlated color
temperature, the use of different remote phosphor
lenses allows for the possibility of additional white
CCT options in the future.
By using royal-blue LUXEON Rebel LEDs, the
Fortimo solutions maximize the photonic energy
directed at the remote phosphor lens. Careful
matching of the wavelength of the LEDs to the

characteristics of the phosphor in turn maximizes the light output and efficacy of the module.
The small 44mm x 82mm x 83mm Fortimo footprint allows the modules to be integrated with a
wide variety of reflector solutions used in downlights.
LUXEON Rebel also lights the tunable white LEXEL DLM-1000 module, which is also designed
for downlight luminaires. The Lexel DLM delivers 1000 lm of light that and a tunable whitepoint
between 2700K-6500K with excellent consistency and a CRI ≥ 80.
Both the Fortimo and Lexel downlight modules are made possible by the small size and high flux
of LUXEON Rebel LEDs. The Fortimo DLMs also utilize the ability of LUXEON Rebel to be
driven at currents from 350 mA to 1000 mA so that usable light can be maximized and system
design simplified
These new products demonstrate Philips’ commitment to providing the lighting market with
products ranging from LEDs to SSL modules to complete luminaires enabling the development
of solid-state lighting that uses less energy and is more environmentally friendly and sustainable.
