Philips has announced the launch of a second generation of its highly successful MASTER LED family of lamps, revealing plans to introduce a further extension of the range, which offer a direct replacement for incandescent and halogen lamps.
The second generation MASTER LED range is available in a number of retrofit shapes (A-shape ‘bulb’, NR63 spot and HV Halogen GU10 spots) with a variety of cap fittings. From April 2009 onwards they will also be available in type MR16 LV, with a warmer colour temperature (3000 K and 2700 K). The entire HV range will be dimmable, while the LV version has a two-step dimmable function in selected installations.
This second generation range will offer more opportunities while saving up to 80% on electricity consumption, making MASTER LED the best alternative to incandescent lamps.
In September Philips will extend the MASTER LED family further to include a 100% retrofit LED Candle and Lustre (clear and frosted versions) to replace the frosted GLS Candles and Lustres which fall under the GLS ban as detailed in the new EU legislation.
