eW Downlight Powercore LED awarded Energy Star

18 September 2009 16.00 BST

(USA) - Philips Color Kinetics announced today that its eW Downlight Powercore LED fixture has been awarded the Energy Star label.

Meeting the strict efficiency and performance criteria set forth by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy, eW Downlight Powercore (65° beam angle, 2700 K and 4000K only) demonstrates that energy-efficient, simple-to-use LED lighting fixtures are available now, without sacrificing quality of light.
To meet Energy Star qualifications for both residential and commercial applications, LED fixtures need to use 75% less energy and last 35 times longer than comparable incandescent light fixtures, while providing exceptional color quality. eW Downlight Powercore - a low-profile LED downlight - surpasses these measures consuming 80% less energy and lasting 40 times longer than incandescent alternatives.

Compared to its incandescent and halogen counterparts, eW Downlight Powercore also boasts long source life, operational efficiency, durability, and a cool beam of light with no IR or UV emissions. Powered directly by line voltage to simplify installation, and compatible with commercially available ELV-type line voltage dimmers, eW Downlight Powercore is easily adapted to existing lighting infrastructures. 
Also at the National Electrical Contractor Association's (NECA) annual trade show, Philips Color Kinetics will unveil its newest fixture, eW Cove QLX Powercore. This new high-performance cove light was recently named LED Cove Lighting winner for the American Lighting Association's 2009 "Lighting for Tomorrow" competition, which seeks the best, white-light LED fixtures for general illumination, judged on lighting performance, style, and energy efficiency.
An elegant, linear LED cove lighting fixture, eW Cove QLX Powercore delivers high-quality, uniform white or single color light. With output of up to 300 lumens per foot, long lifetime, superior energy efficiency, and virtually maintenance-free operation, this fixture represents a viable and affordable alternative to traditional fluorescent and incandescent cove lighting sources. eW Cove QLX Powercore offers extraordinary design flexibility with four color temperatures ranging from 2700 K to 4000 K, four fixed colors, wide and medium beam angles, and two lengths. (Available Q4 2009)
