Philips

Energy Used

A rating, expressed in watts, to indicate the rate at which a lamp consumes energy. Also known as wattage value.
 
Energy Used
7 Watts

Volts

A measure of "electrical pressure" between two points. The voltage specification of an incandescent lamp is the electrical "pressure" required to drive it at its designed point. The "voltage" of a ballast (e.g. 120 V) refers to the line voltage coming from the power source and is connected to the ballast.
 
Volts
120

Bulb Shape

The description of the general appearance of a lamp/bulb consists of a letter(s) followed by a number. The letter indicates the shape of the bulb and the number relates to the diameter of the bulb in eighths of an inch. For example, a common household bulb is the A-19. The bulb is "A" shape and the diameter would be nineteen 8ths of an inch, or 2 3/8".
 
Bulb Shape
PAR-20

Base

The end (or ends) of the lamp that fits into the socket.
 
Base
Medium (E26)

Beam Spread (°)

The width of a light beam, expressed in degrees. The beam spread is often part of the ordering code for reflector lamps. For example, a 50PAR30/HIR/NFL25 is a 50-watt PAR30 narrow flood lamp with a beam spread of 25 degrees.
 
Beam Spread (°)
22

Diameter (in)

Light bulbs: a measurement of a bulb's width taken at the widest point of the bulb. Fixtures: the measurement across the widest point of a circular fixture.
 
Diameter (in)
2.5

Length (in)

Also referred to as "Maximum Overall Length" (MOL). For light bulbs, it measures the length of a light bulb, from the top of the bulb to the bottom of the base or pins and is typically expressed in inches. For light fixtures and ballasts, it applies to the total horizontal length of the item.
 
Length (in)
3.5

Average Rated Life (hr)

A measurement of the average length of time, between first use and the point when 50% of the lamps tested have stopped functioning, , using an operating cycle of 3 hours on, 20 minutes off.
 
Average Rated Life (hr)
45000

Brightness (Lumens)

A rating of the inital light output of a bulb, rated after 100 hrs of operation. Lumens are a measure of how much light falls on one square foot of area, one foot away from the light source.
 
Brightness (Lumens)
280

Finish

Light bulbs: the coating applied to the bulb causing light to be emitted in certain colors or color temperatures (see Color Temperature). Popular finishes include clear, frosted, colors (amber, blue, green, red, etc.) as well as color temperature designations ranging from warm white (2700K) to natural daylight (6500K). Fixtures: the decorative finish of the item.
 
Finish
Cool White

CRI

Color Rendering Index is an international system used to rate a lamp's ability to render object colors. The higher the CRI (based upon a 0-100 scale) the richer and more accurately colors generally appear. CRI differences among lamps are not usually visible to the eye unless the difference is more than 3-5 points.
 
CRI
83

Color Temperature (Kelvin)

An expression of the hue of the light emitted, measured in degrees Kelvin. Usually expressed by a four digit number followed by (k), such as 2700k. Higher temperatures indicate whiter, "cooler" colors, while lower temperatures indicate yellower, "warmer" colors. Some common Kelvin temperature benchmarks are 2700k (warm white), 3500k (neutral white), 4100k (cool white), 5000k (bright white), and 6500k (daylight).
 
Color Temperature (Kelvin)
4200K

Center Beam Candle Power

Center Beam Candle Power(CBPC), or Maximum Beam Candle Power(MBCP), represents the intensity of delivered light that falls onto a surface area. Delivered light describes how much useful light a bulb can deliver to a task area and is the best and most relevant measurement for evaluating LEDs and for making accurate comparisons with conventional lighting. Evaluating an LED solely or primarily on the basis if its lumen output can underestimate or otherwise give a distorted picture of the LED's performance and suitability for a given task or application.
 
Center Beam Candle Power
1200

Bulb Technology

The technology implemented by the bulb, e.g. incandescent, halogen, LED
 
Bulb Technology
LED

Dimmable

Indicates whether a bulb can be dimmed in conjunction with a suitable dimmer control.
 
Dimmable
Yes

Q & A

Philips EnduraLED Brand DIMMABLE 7 Watt narrow flood lamp generates as much light as many 50 Watt traditional incandescent lamps. Can smoothly dim down to 10% power.

  • Perfect to use anywhere you are using a 50 Watt PAR20 incandescent lamp

  • No lead or mercury means easy and environmentally safe disposal

  • 280 Lumens initial light output is comparable to most 50 Watt incandescent lamps, while saving 43 Watts in electricity

  • VERY long life - rated to still put out 70% as much light after 45,000 hours of operation as it does when brand new

 CHECK PRODUCT FIT BEFORE INVESTING IN MANY - Product May Not Fit in Your Fixture.  Also, NOT RECOMMENDED for use in enclosed fixtures because heat buildup can shorten life.  DO NOT "hot swap" this lamp.  Turn off fixture before replacing existing bulb.

          Comments about Philips Lighting Company 7 Watt, 120 Volt DIMMABLE 45,000-Hr Cool White LED PAR20 Bulb:

          The Philips 7 watt PAR20 LED delivers an amount of light similar to a 50 watt R20 incandescent even though the LED is rated for 250 lumens and the R20 incandescent is rated for 385 lumens. In this comparison the light of the LED is more concentrated than the incandescent. This particular LED is rated with a color temperature of 4200K, quite a bit higher than both incandescent (usually 2700K or less) and halogen (typically around 3000K). That means this bulb will deliver a much whiter, almost bluish light. Bottom line versus incandescent – while the LED delivers an adequate amount of light, the color temperature is very different from incandescent and has more similarity to the cool white fluorescent found in many office environments. Perhaps a better option for replacing an incandescent would be a warmer 2700K version of the LED while the 3000K version would be closest to a halogen.

          As expected, when compared to a 50PAR20 halogen (550 lumens), the 7 watt PAR20 LED (250 lumens) has noticeably less output. However, the visible difference is closer than the rated lumens would suggest. The 4200K color temperature is noticeably "whiter" than the halogen. The LED may be adequate in some applications where a 50PAR20 halogen is being used but considering the whiter light delivered by the LED, it may be a good idea to purchase one or two before making an investment in several.

          Dimming seems to be adequate though we recommend that users considering to put several LEDs on an existing dimming system proceed with caution and test the load ratings on their system to be sure the replacement LEDs are drawing enough current to allow the dimmer to do its job.

              A:

              This item is not Energy Star rated. However, the U.S. Department of Energy's Lighting Facts program has verified the performance of this bulb based on industry-standardized testing.

          • Q:

            Most light fixtures today are U.L. or CSA rated. These fixtures were rated with incandescent
            light bulbs, will using your LED bulbs in these existing fixtures void the U.L or CSA rating?
            Asked on 2/3/2012 by Anonymous from Benton City, WA

            1 answer

            • CUSTOMER CARE

              A:

              Using an LED bulb in the fixture will not affect the UL or CSA rating. However, depending on the type of fixture, the performance of the LED may be affected. LED replacement bulbs need to be used in well-ventilated fixtures. If the fixture is not well ventilated and heat is allowed to build up, the life and performance of the bulb will be affected.
