Lumileds, supplier of Philips automotive lighting products, is offering a new informative automotive lighting specification guide.
The guide features highly detailed information on Philips headlight, miniature, sealed beam, and specialty bulbs so sales personnel can easily assist customers in making informed decisions when replacing their automotive light bulbs.
For ease of use, the specification guide is organized by bulb type, family, and lamp number index. It presents all of the relevant bulb configuration and performance figures needed for proper bulb selection and replacement, including trade number, family, primary application, vacuum or gas filled type, voltage, amperage, wattage, base, filament type, light center length, overall length, approximate candlepower, and average service life hours.
The specification guide provides detailed illustrations of bulb, filament and base designations, and an easy-to-use nomograph that explains the relationship between voltage, current, candlepower, and service life. It includes illustrative diagrams on operating temperature, color temperature, inrush current, and dimensions for miniature and sealed beam lamps.
The guide also reviews the aggressive fraud prevention efforts against that are in place designed to protect customers against Xenon lamp piracy. It provides detailed information about the Philips Certificate of Authenticity (COA), and a special QR code that allows customers to verify the authenticity of their Philips product.
The specification guide also provides a QR code to direct customers to the Philips Online Bulb Look Up, which will help them quickly find the correct, vehicle-specific headlight, exterior, interior, and LED bulbs they need, as well as options for where to purchase, online and offline.
The Philips Automotive Lighting Specification Guide opens with a special section called, “Lighting Technology Explained,” and provides a glossary of lighting terms. It closes with safety reminder that encourages drivers to replace headlights in pairs.
