Philips Introduces MASTER LED Bulbs Using LUXEON LEDs

Philips has announced its MASTER LED collection of LED lamps that can be used in luminaires with E27 and GU10 sockets.


The 7W E27 A55 lamp, identical in form factor to a conventional light bulb, is most interesting, suitable for retrofit of 40W incandescents for nearly 83% energy savings in general lighting applications. The lamp is available in CW (4200K, 70 CRI, 230 lumens) and WW (3100K, 85 CRI, 155 lumens) color. The lamp is predicted to provide an average service life of 45,000 hours. No word (as far as I could tell) on compatibility with dimmers.

The complete product line appears to be targeted to general and downlighting luminaires in hotels and hospitality applications, but Philips is also promoting them to offices and homes as well.

Recently, the MASTER LED Bulb was honored by both the Institute Francais du Design and Equip’Hotel Paris for its innovative design and sustainability.

Currently, the product is only available in 230V countries, but should be available in the U.S. and Canada within the first half of 2009.
