Standard and pre-defined solutions make things easier — but there also has to be room for a bit of flexibility. To put it in conventional terms: Have you ever dreamed of having a 60W lamp in addition to the standard available 50W and 70W lamps? That's where solutions like the Philips L-Tune tool, available as part of the Ledgine package, can come in handy. Using L-Tune, you can customize your light source by tuning its flux.
The first step is simply to type into the L-Tune interface information regarding the selected luminaire and flux you’re using in your lighting calculation, as well as your preferences regarding lumen depreciation, LED operational lifetimes, dimming, and more. L-Tune then calculates different solutions for the same flux. You can choose from these the one that will achieve the best possible balance between cost, lifetime, and energy consumption.
L-Tune also helps you match your local requirements, which can be even more strict than regional ones in terms of the minimum lumen maintenance or power factor.Furthermore, to enable better serviceability, the newly defined L-Tune program codes are linked to the Philips Service tag application, so once you scan the luminaire's QR code you'll have access to accurate and up-to-date information on flux and power levels.
Optics innovations like Philips Ledgine allow for the highest-quality lighting in any outdoor application, from roadways to street-lighting to city centers and beyond. They meet the need for an up-to-date optics solution that makes one-size-fits-all technology immediately obsolete. Upgradeable, efficient, easily serviceable, and eminently versatile, they're sure-fire investments for municipal and infrastructure authorities, and will be powering the LED lighting revolution as it continues to develop across the decades of breakthroughs ahead.
