TownGuide Core – Easy to choose, easy to use

TownGuide Core

Product family information

The TownGuide Core family consists of two recognizable yet modern shapes: Flat Cone and Bowl. Both are available with either a clear or frosted bowl. Offering an extensive range of lumen packages and a choice of color temperatures, as well as a long lifetime and comparatively low power consumption, TownGuide Core is a choice that is easily made. TownGuide Core offers quick and easy installation. Thanks to the bayonet whistle connector located in the spigot, the luminaire does not have to be opened at all, saving valuable labor time. In the development of TownGuide Core, Philips has made every effort to ensure the investment required is as low as possible. And as TownGuide Core is a dedicated LED luminaire, the energy cost savings compared to conventional lighting are significant, making it a natural choice to replace HPL lamps, which are banned from 2015 onwards.
