The 60mm diameter and 196mm high lamp fits into the standard E27 fixture and replicates a similar light effect to conventional street lighting. Philips TrueForce LED Road reduces the time needed to maintain, replace and fit each street light, including the knock-on time required for road closures. In addition, its longer lifespan of more than eight years plus energy savings of up to 45% compared to conventional bulbs help save on running costs. Drawing 37W, the lamps deliver up to 6000 lumen for the 4000K cool white version, and 5500 lumen for the 3000K warm white version.
The new lamp was already trialed by the Nacka Municipality in Sweden and it is said to distribute a similar amount of light as conventional street light, with a significantly improved color rendering index (70) compared to conventional SON-T lamps. The new lamp will be available across Europe from July 2018.
