Philips Lighting (Euronext Amsterdam ticker: LIGHT), a global leader in lighting, has launched its new LED lighting trunking system for retail and industrial spaces, Philips Maxos fusion. This connected-ready system helps make buildings future-proof by providing high quality LED lighting combined with the freedom to adjust light effects and to scale the system with additional Internet of Things technologies. The trunking system can be complemented with sensors that allow integrating retail and warehouse technologies such as cameras, beacons, audio, and scanners into one system.

Philips Maxos fusion offers a high degree of flexibility to mount and reposition LED lights anywhere along its mounting rail and is most suitable for retail, warehouses, food production areas, automotive applications and other industrial environments. The new optical range gives near endless possibilities to illuminate spaces, delivering energy efficient light with less luminaires and lower total cost of ownership (TCO). LED luminaires can be moved and clicked in the mounting rail to highlight special promotions with accented spots or to light areas that demand long light lines to deliver high uniformity of light.

Hypermarket Auchan in Saint- Priest, France, is the first to install Philips Maxos fusion and to benefit from the freedom to complement their store layout with a customizable lighting design that gives options for the future. Dominique Forgues, Technical Director Auchan Retail France says: “With the new high quality LED luminaires and trunking system we can maximize the customer experience at Auchan by highlighting promotions or accentuating our merchandize and achieve more than 50% of energy savings. As Philips Maxos fusion is also a carrier of connectivity, we are keen to explore the future possibilities on adding digital services to support our omnichannel strategy.”

Connected-Ready The Philips LED trunking system is easily integrated with connected LED lighting systems, such as the Philips GreenWarehouse system which enables energy savings by creating lighting zones to use light only where it is needed.

“We have a deep appreciation of customers’ needs having installed more than two million meters of trunking systems. Philips Maxos fusion arose from this and represents a future-proof backbone for repositioning luminaires, sensors and existing and future connected lighting systems. It’s ideal for precision lighting applications and valueadded customer services for retail and industry,” says Paul Peeters, Business Leader Professional Lighting Europe at Philips Lighting.
