        Designed to address the need for energy-efficient basic lighting, the TBS165 luminaire makes it possible to save energy by replacing outdated electromagnetic installations with Philips TL5 technology.Featuring innovative dedicated TL5 optics, a choice of ballasts, sensors (presence detection, daylight regulation) and emergency lighting, the TBS165 range can be used for general lighting in a wide variety of applications, including offices, corridors, schools and shops (supermarkets, DIY). Combining high-frequency gear, sensors and MASTER TL5 lamps, it allows substantial energy savings. The low-height recessed luminaire fits in exposed ceilings. Conveniently, it does not have to be opened, as it has pre-installed lamps and can be connected from the outside.
