Introduction to the Fortimo LED Line System
Applications and luminaire classification
The Philips Fortimo LED Line System is the replacement for linear fluorescent lamps
in general lighting. The system features a high level of energy efficiency, which
surpasses T5 systems, at the lowest possible cost. It offers high-quality white light
with excellent color rendering and color consistency and, as part of the Fortimo
future-proof promise, it comes with a 5-year Philips guarantee.
Philips Fortimo LED Line 3R
The Fortimo LED Line System consists of a range of linear LED Lines (boards),
Xitanium drivers and a variety of cables. The LED Line with three rows of LEDs,
referred to as 3R, and LED Line with 2 rows of LEDs, referred to as 2R, are ideal for
designing luminaires for diffuse applications. The LED Line with 1 row of LEDs, is
applicable for luminaires requiring tighter beams for vertical lighting as well as
luminaires for diffuse light if optics are applied. Both ranges feature a variety of
different lengths, lumen packages and color temperatures. In this guide you will find
the specific information required to develop a luminaire based on Philips Fortimo LED
Line system.
The Philips Fortimo LED Line System contains high-voltage solutions that comply with
European Class I requirements for indoor lighting applications. Other applications or
luminaires can be explored by OEMs as long as this does not create a design conflict.
European luminaire standards, like IEC/EN 60598, must be complied with.
In this guide you will find the specific information required to develop a luminaire
based on the high voltage versions of Philips Fortimo LED Line 3R systems, Fortimo
LED Line 2R systems and Fortimo LED Line 1R systems. Furthermore a special
chapter on the use of the LED Line Cover 2ft soft-diffuse is written.
Philips Fortimo LED Line 2R
Can the LED Line be used in outdoor luminaires?
Neither the Fortimo LED Line nor the driver have an IP classification > IP20. If you
decide to use these products in a luminaire for outdoor applications the OEM will be
responsible for ensuring proper IP protection and approbation of the luminaire.
Please consult Philips if you wish to deviate from the design rules described in this
guide (see last page for contact details).

Xitanium driver operating windows
The Xitanium drivers have a voltage and a current range, known as the 'operating
window'. This means that multiple combinations of LED Lines and drivers are
possible. The graph shows the operating windows of the Xitanium drivers.
The driver supplies a constant current to drive the LED Line. The correct current
setting can be chosen in three ways. If no resistance value is connected, this
automatically results in a 400 mA output current of the Xitanium driver.
1.
2.
3.
The output current of the driver can be set by connecting a specific resistor
value to the driver. Philips supplies driver-to-board cables with integrated
resistors (Rset).
The OEM uses its own design of connector cables.
The Xitanium Touch/DALI TD drivers can be programmed in order to set the
desired current.
Philips LED Line cables
There are several cables available to suit your luminaire design.
Cables to connect the driver to the LED Lines without a resistor
The LED Line cables are designed to connect the Xitanium drivers to the LED Lines
1R, 2R and 3R. The length of this cable is 600 mm. If required, it can also incorporate
a resistor (Rset) that defines the output current of the driver. The cables without
Rset resistor are used if the Late Stage Configuration function of the driver is used.
Driver to LED Line cable 1C (for one chain of LEDs)
Driver to LED Line cable 2C (for two chains of LEDs)
Cables with and without Rset are available in 1-chain (1C) or 2-chain (2C) versions,
depending on the amount of modules you wish to connect to the driver. The cables
consist of a 7-pin connector on the driver side, and one or two 2-pin connectors to
connect the modules.

Data for specific cable developed by OEM
We advise using the Fortimo LED Line cables. Approval of the LED Line and Xitanium
LED driver is based on a reference luminaire with the standard Philips cable of 60 cm.
Any luminaire design needs its own approval, organized by the responsible OEM,
irrespective of the length of cable used. If you prefer to develop a cable with a
different length, the specification should meet IEC/EN requirements. When selecting
wiring, it must be borne in mind that the cable must not emit hazardous gases or
catch fire when exposed to high temperatures (e.g. PVC-free)
The following cable/connector specifications can be used:
JST connector for cable to Xitanium 75 W LED driver:
housing JST PAP-07V-S
contact JST SPHD-001T-P0.5
diameter of the cable: 24AWG

regions can be distinguished:
1. Current < nominal current
a. Lifetime > 50,000 hours
b. Efficiency higher than nominal value, lumen output lower
than nominal value
2. Current between nominal current and max. current for lifetime
a. Lifetime > 50,000 hours
b. Efficiency lower than nominal value, lumen output higher
than nominal value
3. Current between max. current for lifetime and absolute max.
current. No warranty applicable in this case.
a. Lifetime < 50,000 hours
b. Efficiency lower than nominal value, lumen output higher

Mechanical characteristics
About the Philips Fortimo LED Line
The LED Line consists of a PCB assembly with components:

LEDs

Connectors (to connect another LED Line or Xitanium driver).
Please note that LED Line 1R can be connected to another 1R but not to 3R nor
to 2R. Same is valid for LED line 3R which can be connected only to another 3R
and likewise LED line 2R can only be connected to another 2R.
The LED Line consists of a carrier with current-conducting copper tracks, which also
acts as a heat spreader. The heat spreader facilitates optimum transfer of heat to the
air. The PCBA has 4 screw holes for fixing it to the mounting plate with M4 screws.
No specific heat sinks are needed (see section entitled „Thermal management‟). The
applied LEDs contain a zener diode that protects against electrostatic discharge
(ESD).

Tc point
The Tc test point indicates a reference point for measuring the LED Line
temperature with a thermocouple glued to the PCB surface. This can be used during
the luminaire design to verify that the temperature remains below the maximum
specified temperature for the Tc test point.
Tc point LED Line 3R
The LED Line 1R and 2R comprises an on-module NTC. With the LED line cable 600
with NTC connector you can connect the designated Xitanium driver. The NTC can
then be used for thermal protection of the LED line. When the threshold value is
exceeded the output power will be automatically tuned down. This is done to keep
the lifetime as specified. The threshold is fixed and cannot be changed. When
designing and installing the luminaire according to this design in guide, the threshold
value will not be exceeded.
Mechanical fixation for LED Line 3R, 2R and 1R.
Screws
The Philips Fortimo LED Line 3R has four holes for fixing the LED Line to the
luminaire. Each LED Line has four holes for M4 (or size 8) screws. To ensure
optimum thermal contact with the luminaire (and therefore optimum lifetime) we
recommend all screw holes are used. To ensure the electrical isolation when using
metal screws, the diameter of the screw head (and optional metal washer) must not
exceed 8 mm.
Tc point LED Line 2R
The LED Line 2200lm 1R has six holes for mounting the module to a luminaire.
There are also six holes available for mounting optics. The electrical isolation distance
around these holes is not suitable for metal screws. When using these holes with
metal screws, apply isolating washers.
The LED Line 1250lm 2R has five holes for mounting the module to a luminaire.
There are also two optional holes available for mounting. These holes can also be
used for mounting optics.

Screw type and torque
The maximum torque that should be applied depends on the screw type and
luminaire material. The fasteners used to secure the LED Line to a heat sink must be
tightened with a torque in accordance with the table below.

Optics
Luminaire manufacturers have the freedom to design their own (secondary) optics.
No primary optics have been added to the LED Line to ensure optimum lm/W
efficiency of the system.

Lighting characteristics
Beam shape
The Philips Fortimo LED Line generates a Lambertian beam shape, which is a
pragmatic starting point for OEMs wishing to design secondary optics.
High-quality light
High-quality white light is characterized by a color rendering index (CRI) of 80. It is
also important to apply widely favored CCTs (in general lighting applications: 3000
and 4000 K) and a color consistency comparable with conventional fluorescent
lighting. The Fortimo LED Line 1R and 3R are available in 3000, 3500, 4000
and 5000 K.
Polar diagram of Fortimo LED Line 1ft 650 lm 3R
Color consistency (SDCM)
The specification of our Fortimo LED Line 1R and 3R 3000, 3500, 4000 and 5000 K
for color consistency is 3.5 SDCM at 0 hours. At 6,000 hours the color shift u‟v‟ is
smaller than 0.007.
SDCM stands for Standard Deviation of Color Matching and the value 3.5 refers to
the size of an ellipse around the black body locus. Staying within this ellipse results in
a consistency of light which ensures that no color difference is perceivable between
one LED Line and another with the naked eye in most applications.
Warning: the 3.5 SDCM color consistency specification may not be sufficient for
applications that are sensitive to color differences like wall washers, which typically
require 2 SDCM.

Binning
Philips has created high-quality LED light by ensuring correct mixing of the LED bins
within each LED Line. There is a limited need for binning of LED Lines in two bins
only.
N.B.
Fortimo LED Lines are labeled and packaged in two voltage bins. For LED Line 1ft
650 lm 3R HV1, LED Line 1ft 1100 lm 3R HV1 and LED Line 2ft 1100lm 1R HV1 are
divided into bins „A‟ and „C‟. In order to ensure optimum flux and color uniformity,
we advise against mixing two different bins in the same luminaire.
The Vf bin is clearly indicated on the label, as shown in the example below. All LED
Lines packaged in one box will be from the same bin.
Example label on LED Line indication bin A for example
Why address the issue of LED binning?
It is important to understand binning because it is very important in LED system
design. As in other semiconductor manufacturing processes, in the production of
LEDs the number of parameters of the epitaxy process is very large and the process
window is small (for example, the temperature must be controlled to within 0.5 °C
across the wafer at temperatures of ~800 °C). The fact that it is difficult to achieve
such a high degree of control means that the properties of the LEDs may vary
significantly within single production runs and even on the same wafer. To obtain
consistency for a given application, binning (= selection in bins) is mandatory. Binning
involves characterizing the LEDs on the basis of measurement and subsequently
categorizing them into several specific bins. To keep the cost per LED down, LED
manufacturers need to sell the full production distribution. At the same time they
cannot guarantee the availability of all bins at all times. There is a trade-off between
logistics and cost price on the one hand, and the application requirements on the
other. The advantage of this is that there will only be a limited need for LED Line
pairing by the OEM.

Future-proof design
New-generation LEDs will become more efficient in the future, which will give us
the opportunity to change the LEDs and/or the LED pitch of the LED Line. In order
to prevent the need for a new luminaire design, and to keep the mechanical
dimensions and the flux consistent (future-proof), we therefore also advise designing
luminaire optics (reflector and diffuser) based on a LED pitch of 25 mm x- and ydirection.
Future proof design with max. 25 mm LED pitch
Examples show LED Line 3R, 2R and 1R

19
Optics
Luminaire manufacturers have the freedom to design their own optics in order to
maximize the lm/W efficiency of the system. If multiple LED Lines are installed, we
recommend a distance of 6 mm (LED Line 1ft 3R) and 1.3 mm (LED Line 2ft 1R) is
maintained between the LED Lines to ensure a continuous optical pitch.
A continuous optical pitch with 6 mm distance between the LED Lines 1ft 3R
Between LED Lines 2ft 2R a distance of 0.8 mm recommended for a continuous optical pitch
Between LED Lines 2ft 1R a distance of 1.3 mm is recommended
Design-in guide Philips Fortimo LED Line High Voltage System
20
Reflector design
If a reflector is designed around the LED Line, it is essential to allow a clearance
distance between the LED Line and reflector (2 mm) around the LED Line surface,
LEDs and the connectors (see drawing below). This clearance distance is necessary
to ensure safe isolation of the system and is in line with IEC regulations 60598 to
prevent short circuiting, damage and an open circuit to the LED Line.

Thermal management
The critical thermal management points of the LED Line and driver
are set out in this section to facilitate the design-in of Fortimo LED
Line Systems. If these thermal points are taken into account this will
ensure the optimum performance and lifetime of the system.
Temperature and lifetime of the Fortimo LED Line
The Tc rises as the ambient temperature increases. The temperature offset
between Tambient and Tc depends on the thermal design of the luminaire.
The Fortimo LED Line System has been designed for indoor use and ambient
temperatures from 0 °C and higher. The Tc of the LED Line must be complied
with at all times. For LEDs it is the junction temperature that is the critical factor
for operation and lifetime. Since there is a direct relation between the case
temperature and the LED junction temperature, it is sufficient to measure the
case temperature at the Tc point on the upper side of the LED Line. This Tc
point must not exceed the maximum values shown in the table below. This table
also shows the Tc at which the performance specifications of the LED Line are
valid.

Definitions
The definitions used in this chapter are as follows:

Driver temperature: temperature measured at the Tc point of the driver.

Driver ambient temperature: temperature inside the luminaire around the
driver.

Luminaire ambient temperature: temperature outside the luminaire.
Lumen maintenance of the Fortimo LED Line
In case both the current and Tc are kept below the recommended values for
50,000 hours lifetime, the following lumen maintenance curves apply. The graphs
below show the estimated lumen depreciation curves at Tc life and I life. Both
B50 and B10 curves are shown, representing 50% and 90% of the population.
These estimations are based on 9000 hours of LM80 testing and calculated
according to the TM-21 guideline. After 50,000 hours the lines are dotted,
because officially we cannot predict lumen maintenance beyond 50,000 hours.
Lowering the drive current will increase the lumen maintenance time.

Fortimo LED Line 2ft 1250lm 2R HV1 show no lumen depreciation at all at 6000
hours of LM80 testing. These products are specified to reach B50L70, and we
are confident, on the basis of the encouraging 6000-hour test results, that the
lumen maintenance could be even better.

How to measure the temperature of the LED Line
The Tc values are specified at the Tc point, which is indicated on the LED
Line. The temperature can be measured via thermocouples that are firmly
glued to the upper surface of the LED Line.
For LED Line 1R and 2R also the onboard NTC can be used for
measurements during development. For all measurements the
temperature must be stable before any reliable data can be obtained
(between 0.5 and 3 hours).

The NTC is a resistor with a temperature dependent resistance value.
The NTC resistance can be measured in two ways:
1. Directly on the NTC component (RNTC)
2. Using the onboard JST connector(RCONN)
In the second method, the resistance of other resistors connected to the
NTC is measured as well. The following table shows the relation between
temperature and measured resistance for both methods.

Relation between flux and Tc
The flux of the LED Line is specified at a nominal Tc, which is a lower
value than the maximum Tc corresponding to the lifetime specification.
Increasing the temperature lowers the flux and lifetime of the LED Line.
The relation between flux and Tc has been plotted in different graphs on
the left and below

Cooling via the luminaire
Thermal contact
The unflatness of the area where the LED Line is mounted should not
exceed 1 mm along the LED Line length in order to ensure good thermal
contact and to avoid stress and strain on the LED Line. We also
recommend that good-quality screws are used in order to ensure optimal
contact between the bottom surface and the luminaire surface, without
the need for thermal paste.
Cooling surface area and material
The amount of heat that needs to be transferred away from the LED Line
to the ambient air is about 4 W for the LED Line 650 lm 3R, 6 W for the
LED Line 1100 lm 3R and 13W for the LED Line 2200 lm 1R. This heat is
dissipated via the luminaire housing.
If the luminaire housing has sufficient thermal conductivity, the heat will
spread further, thereby increasing the effective cooling area. We
therefore recommend use of a material that has high thermal conductivity
and is of sufficient thickness. This will lower the case temperature and
enable the system to perform better (lifetime and light output).
The required size of the luminaire housing area per LED Line depends on
the design and volume of the luminaire, the thermal properties of the
material used and the expected ambient temperature.
Aluminum is usually preferable to steel because of its higher thermal
conductivity, although for most applications steel is likely to be adequate
for ambient temperatures of up to 35 °C. For higher ambient
temperatures, the use of aluminum should be considered.

Recommendations
General thermal design guidelines to improve the thermal management
and performance of a luminaire:
•
•
Design-in guide Philips Fortimo LED Line High Voltage System
Simplify the heat path from Tc to cold ambient air.
Use good thermally conductive materials in the primary heat path
(e.g. aluminum).
29
•
•
•
•
Limit the number of thermal interfaces in the primary heat path
towards the ambient air.
Use thermal interface materials (TIM) to ensure proper thermal
contact, i.e. between the LED Line and heat sink.
Ensure proper heat spreading by using materials with good
conductivity and/or materials of sufficient thickness to increase the
effective use of the available cooling surfaces.
Anodized, painted surfaces are preferable to blank surfaces in order
to increase heat transfer via thermal radiation.
Contact Philips at any time if you need advice on your luminaire design
(see section entitled 'Contact details').
If you require further support with regard to thermal interface material
we recommend you contact one of our partners listed in the appendix.
Label on Xitanium driver indicating Tc test point
Test point Xitanium driver
Xitanium driver temperature
The next important component is the driver, which influences the lifetime
and reliability of the system. In the design everything possible is done to
keep the component temperature as low as possible, but the design of the
luminaire and the ability to guide the heat out of the luminaire are of
utmost importance. Inside the driver the critical components for
temperature are:
• electrolytic capacitor
• solder joints
• semi-conductors.
Tc of the Xitanium driver
To enable temperature measurement in a luminaire without measuring
the individual components in the electronic driver, a Tc point has been
defined (see figure „Tc point Xitanium driver‟). This point, or rather
details of where this point is located, can be found on the label of the
electronic driver. The specified temperature of this point is based on the
temperature of the components and the solder joints inside the electronic
driver. How this point relates to the temperature of the components and
solder joints is shown in the figure „Test point of the Xitanium driver‟.
Operation under built-in conditions
The heat produced by the LED Line and the driver in the luminaire (or
other housing) must be dissipated to the surroundings. If a luminaire is
thermally insulated by a ceiling, wall or insulation blanket, the heat
produced cannot be easily dissipated. This will result in additional heat
being applied to the driver and LED Line, which will have an adverse effect
on system performance and lifetime. To ensure optimum performance
and lifetime we recommend that air be allowed to flow freely around the
luminaire. Designing the luminaire in such a way that air can also flow
through it will provide extra cooling, which may be beneficial in certain
cases.

Warning
Do not service the system when the mains voltage is connected; this
includes connecting or disconnecting the cable.
Electrostatic discharge (ESD)
Introduction to ESD
It is generally recognized that ElectroStatic Discharge (ESD) can damage electronic
components. Professional applicants of electronic components have implemented
extensive and disciplined measures to avoid ESD damage.
Now, with the introduction LED components for lighting a new public of users, like
OEM‟s and installers, are exposed to handling LED electronic components.
ESD in production environment
Depending the protection level of the LED module a minimum set of measures have
to be taken when handling LED boards. Philips LED products have a high degree of
ESD protection by design. ESD measures are required in a production environment
where values can exceed the values shown in the ESD specifications table below.
Furthermore ESD vulnerable products are packed and delivered in ESD save
packaging.
Example of ESD measures
Servicing and installing luminaires
It is highly recommend to inform installers not to touch the LED components and use
earthed arm-straps to avoid ESD damage during installation and maintenance.
ESD consultancy
Independent ESD consultancy companies can advise and supply adequate tools and
protection guidance.

Wiring
Connecting the driver to the mains supply
The mains supply has to be connected to the power supply (see the manual of the
power supply for instructions at www.philips.com/xitanium). Because the Xitanium
LED drivers are class I drivers, protective ground also needs to be connected. The
minimum diameter for the mains cables lies between 0.2 and 1.5 mm.
Connecting the LED Line to the driver
The first LED Line is connected to the driver using a 600 mm LED Line cable. On the
LED Line side, the connector is connected to the input connector marked „IN‟. In
some configurations which use the LED Line 1ft 650 lm HV1, a '2-chain' cable harness
is used, which consists of 1 driver connector and 2 LED Line connectors. This cable
has to be connected to 2 LED Lines on the side marked „IN‟.
Interconnecting LED Lines
The LED Lines are connected to each other using module-to-module cable harnesses.
These are available in three different lengths: 46 mm, 115 mm and 190 mm. The cable
is connected to the „OUT‟ connector of a LED Line and the „IN‟ connector of the
neighboring LED Line.
Cable length and EMC
Philips has successfully performed EMC tests for a total length 4m (sum of wire length
and length of LED Lines). For longer lengths it is advised to repeat these tests.
Return-end connector
The electric circuit of the LED Line is designed in such a way that multiple LED Lines
can be connected in series. This requires the „OUT‟ connector of the last LED Line to
be short-circuited using a return-end connector. In cases where a 2-chain cable is
used, 2 return-end connectors will have to be fitted.
Warning
Connecting the luminaire to protective ground
Like the Xitanium LED driver, the luminaire also needs to be connected
to protective ground in order to comply with safety regulations and
EMI.

Parasitic Current Protector
The LED‟s of the LED Linear HV products (LED Line and LED Strip) connected to a
TD Xitanium HV driver may glow (in the dark) when the driver is in stand-by mode.
Philips offers the Parasitic Current Protector HV (PCP HV) as a temporary solution.
The PCP HV is offered as a separate module (in a same housing as the linear HFMatchbox). Future generation drivers Xitanium HV non isolated linear office LED
drivers will have this solution integrated, so no separate module is needed anymore.

LED Line Cover 2ft soft-diffuse
The LED Line Cover 2ft soft-diffuse makes it easy for OEMs to redesign
their traditional fluorescent-based open-louver and Class I luminaires
(especially T8 solutions) to LED-based luminaires. This cover was
developed for the Philips LED Line range – specifically all Fortimo LED
Line 1R products and the Core LED Line. By improving the homogeneity
of the light output from the LED Lines the cover eliminates pixelation
and therefore assures high-quality, attractive diffuse white light output.
The LED Line Cover 2ft soft-diffuse consists of five parts – a diffuser, two
end-cap tops and two end-cap bottoms – and ensures dust-free LEDs
and easy cleaning.

Light distribution
When the diffuser is in use the light from the LEDs will be redistributed uniformly
over its surface, at the expense of some efficiency loss, resulting in lower luminous
flux (see table). Ultimately, however, the performance is dependent on the total
optical system and the way in which the luminaire shapes and directs the light beams.

Lifetime of LED Lines in combination with the diffuser
Mounting a diffuser over the LED Line modules will probably have an impact on the
Tc. The delta Tc is < 5 °C. Maximum temperature for the diffuser is 75 °C.
The luminaire manufacturer will measure Tc with the diffuser installed. If Tc is still
within specifications, the lifetime claim of the LED Line is still applicable.

Installation instructions LED Line Cover 2ft soft-diffuse
Warnings!

Before installation, maintenance or cleaning, always switch off
or disconnect the power and follow the appropriate safety
procedures. Please review all warnings concerning the LED Line
in this design-in guide too.

Always assemble all five components of the Fortimo LED Line
Cover soft-diffuse to ensure a safe and reliable product. Follow
the assembly instructions as described in this design-in guide.
Make sure all components are securely fixed after assembly.

The diffuser prevents the live parts of the LED Line from
touching the back plate of the luminaire. For the stiffness of the
back plate of the luminaire, observe the design rule in this
design-in guide so as to guarantee safe use of the diffuser.

Do not use any damaged components.

Make sure the correct wiring is used (pages 29.). When fitting
the wires, guide them through the hole in the end cap so as to
ensure that they do not get damaged during assembly of the
end-cap components.

Place the end-caps at the right distance from each other, as
indicated by the hole pattern in page 35.

When parts (e.g. small boss end-cap bottom) break off or get
damaged during assembly, further assembly should be stopped.
The damaged parts should be replaced by new parts.

After fitting the diffuser or end-cap top the parts cannot be
removed without damage. Reworking the damaged parts is not
allowed for safety reasons.

The diffuser is provided with plastic foil, which has to be
removed before installation. Taking off this foil will create a
static charge. This means that installing engineers must be
earthed, just as when installing the LED Line. For further
information see the chapters „Warnings‟ and „Installation
instructions LED line‟.
Important


Design-in guide Philips Fortimo LED Line High Voltage System
Once the diffuser and end-caps have been added, it is not
possible to open it again. This is so as to make sure that the
assembly will guard against high voltage in the end application.
Please review all instructions concerning the LED Line in this
design-in guide too.
38
Mechanical requirements of luminaire
If the back plate of the luminaire has insufficient stiffness, the shielding function of the
LED Line live parts of the diffuser is not guaranteed. The diffuser cannot then be safely
applied in a Class I open luminaire. The conditions for the minimum stiffness of the
luminaire back plate depend on profile shape, material and luminaire length. The rule
below takes into account the fact that the luminaire length is approximately the same
as the diffuser length.
The minimum stiffness of the luminaire back plate construction is defined as:
(modulus of elasticity * second moment of area) ≥ 525 * 106 [Nmm2].
A typical value for the modulus of elasticity for steel is 210,000 N/mm2.
A typical value for the modulus of elasticity for aluminum is 70,000 N/mm2.
The second moment of area is dependent on the luminaire shape.
The minimum stiffness is required to make sure that there will be no accessible gap
between diffuser and luminaire back plate when the luminaire back plate is pressed
away from the diffuser with a maximum force of 30N.
Cleaning
Use a damp cloth and only water. Do not wipe the diffuser with a dirty or very wet
dishcloth or towel because they may leave residue that can damage the diffuser.

Compliance and approval
Chemical compatibility
In the market medium power LEDs exist containing a silver (Ag)-finished Lead frame.
The lead frame finish is sensitive to corrosion when exposed to substances
containing Sulfur or Chlorine. In that case parts of the lead frame may blacken, which
will impair the Lumen Output or the color of the LED. Materials that are known to
have a higher risk to be a source of Sulfur and Chlorine are for example natural
rubber or corrugated paper.
We recommend to ensure that the direct environment of these LEDs in the
luminaire does not contain materials that can be a source of Sulfur or Chlorine, for
optimal reliability of the LED, LED module and/or LED luminaire. Furthermore, make
sure that the products with these LEDs are not stored or used in vicinity of sources
of Sulfur or Chlorine, and the production environment is also free of these materials.
Also avoid cleaning of the LED products with these type of LEDs with abrasive
substances, brushes or organic solvents like Acetone and TCE.
The Fortimo LED Line uses LEDs with above explained type of lead frame.
Therefore above recommendations apply for the Fortimo LED Line modules.
Philips Fortimo LED Line Systems comply with the standards shown
below.
Compliance and approval marks
The Fortimo LED Line 3R and 1R HV are ENEC approved and comply with CE
regulations. The relevant standards are summarized in the table below. To ensure
luminaire approval, the conditions of acceptance need to be fulfilled. Details can be
requested from your local sales representative. All luminaire manufacturers are
advised to conform to the international standards of luminaire design (IEC 60598Luminaires).
IP rating, humidity and condensation
The Fortimo LED Line 3R and 1R HV systems are build-in systems and therefore
have no IP classification. They are not designed for operation in the open air. The
OEM is responsible for proper IP classification and approbation of the luminaire.
The Fortimo LED Line 1R /3R HV has been developed and released for use in damp
locations and not for locations where condensation is present. If there is a possibility
that condensation could come into contact with the modules, the system/luminaire
builder must take precautions to prevent this.
Photobiological safety
The lamp standard, IEC 62471 „Photobiological safety of lamps and lamp systems‟
gives guidance on evaluating the photobiological safety of lamps and lamp systems
including luminaires. It specifically defines the exposure limits, reference
measurement technique and classification scheme for the evaluation and control of
photobiological hazards from all electrically powered incoherent broadband sources
of optical radiation, including LEDs, in the wavelength range from 200 nm to 3000
nm. Measurement results for LED Line products are given below. Based on these
measurements, the conclusion is that no safety measures are required.

Electromagnetic compatibility
Electromagnetic compatibility, EMC, is the ability of a device or system to operate
satisfactorily in its electromagnetic environment without causing unacceptable
interference in practical situations. In general, LED modules have no effect on the
EMC of a luminaire. The Fortimo LED Line 3R and 1R HV modules are evaluated in
combination with a Xitanium driver in a reference luminaire, according to the
standards mentioned in the table below. No issues were observed.
System disposal
We recommend that the Fortimo LED Line and its components are disposed of in an
appropriate way at the end of their (economic) lifetime. The modules are in effect
normal pieces of electronic equipment containing components that are currently not
considered to be harmful to the environment. We therefore recommend that these
parts are disposed of as normal electronic waste, in accordance with local
regulations.
