Product family information

When it comes to lighting an office space with LED luminaires, people are usually willing to invest in sustainability provided the investment pays back. At the same time, the system should comply with office lighting norms to ensure a comfortable working environment. PowerBalance gen2 is Philips’ most energy-efficient office-norm-compliant LED luminaire. It more than halves energy costs compared to a T5 solution, and the light source has a longer lifetime. This results in significantly lower operational costs, ensuring a payback that meets the needs of the specification market.The gen2 architecture enables a range of highly versatile modular and semi-modular luminaires. These luminaires can be easily mounted in ceilings with exposed T-bar and concealed T-bar, as well as plaster ceilings and bandraster-type ceilings.
