Philips Lighting Unveils 600 Lumen Dimmable LED Bulb Prototype for Incandescent Replacement

Philips Lighting used the prestigious backdrop of the 2009 LightFair International Trade Show & Conference in New York City to unveil its breakthrough and state-of-the-art new SSL solution: a record 600 lumen output A-shape LED bulb that can ultimately be used to replace 40 Watt incandescent bulbs in general lighting applications in the U.S. market and 60 Watt incandescent technology in the European (230V) market.

Powerful, highly efficient, and fully dimmable down to 10%, Philips Lighting’s “next-generation” A-shape SSL, pre-production prototype bulb delivers a high-performing package of lumen output, lumen per watt efficacy, color, and dimmability that is currently unparalleled in the industry -- demonstrating Philips’ continued leadership in defining the future of lighting.
Powered by high-performing LUXEON Rebel LEDs from Philips Lumileds, the 8 Watt 120V bulb delivers 75 lumens per watt, which is 5 times the efficacy of an equivalent incandescent bulb. The bulb is fully dimmable down to 10% and is ideal for use in table lamps, overhead fixtures, and other indoor general lighting applications.
Often described as the “future of lighting,” LED technology offers the benefits of bright color, outstanding energy efficiency, long life, and minimal maintenance. With this breakthrough dimmable A-shape bulb from Philips, lighting users worldwide will enjoy a high-quality LED replacement for incandescent bulbs that delivers comfortable and controllable light for their broad range of general lighting applications while significantly reducing energy consumption and costs and greatly enhancing environmental sustainability.
“As leaders in the development and promotion of solid state lighting platforms, Philips is very excited to break new ground in the SSL arena and to introduce revolutionary product concepts and executions to lighting users worldwide,” says Guido van Tartwijk, head of Philips Lighting’s Global Product Marketing division for LED Retrofit. “Philips’ new A-shape dimmable SSL bulb represents a global breakthrough and game-changing solution that will truly help deliver paradigm transformations around the world, enabling lighting users to capitalize on their energy-efficient SSL retrofit opportunities and explore the vast possibilities of light.”
Philips’ prototype is scheduled to be commercially available by late 2010 and will be part of the company’s emerging new “EnduraLED” family of SSL retrofit solutions in North America (presented under the “MasterLED” family name in other parts of the world).
