Philips Lighting Launches its First Led Retrofit Range for Compact Fluorescent Lamps, or CFLni

Philips Lighting, a Royal Philips company, has announced the launch of the first LED retrofit range for compact fluorescent lamps, or CFLni, used in downlights. Philips CorePro LED PLC builds on the highly successful Philips MASTER LEDtube InstantFit and uses the same click-to-fit technology for replacing CFLni lamps that work with existing Electro Magnetic (EM) and High Frequency (HF) ballasts. The new lamp will be targeted at replacing the 150 million CFLni lamps found across Europe and provides 60% energy saving over conventional PL-C lamps. The Philips CorePro LED PLC range is the first ever retrofit LED alternative to compact fluorescent lamps in down lighting applications that comes in a fully retrofit form factor and offers EM and HF ballast compatible versions. Used for general lighting applications in offices, hallways, staircases, receptions and meeting rooms everywhere, Philips Lighting has reimaged one of the world's most common lamps used in downlights. The new lamps simply plug and play into existing fittings without the need for any modifications to the existing lighting fixtures. Philips CorePro LED PLC deliver energy savings up to 60% and has a lifetime that is three times longer than conventional fluorescent PL-C lamps. Installation and maintenance costs are also kept to the bare minimum to simple plug and play installation and the robust, shatterproof plastic housing. The average pay-back time is less than two years. Rowena Lee from Philips Lighting. The Philips CorePro LED PLC has a three times longer lifetime than CFLs (30,000 hrs) which results in significant maintenance savings. The average pay-back time is less than two years. The Philips CorePro LED PLC enables a quick and easy lighting upgrade, without the need for any modifications to the existing luminaires. Improved light quality with instant illumination and the entire elimination of the flickering associated with conventional fluorescent lamps. The lamps are able to rotate, in order to ensure optimum lighting levels and enabling the distribution of light to be adjusted as effectively as possible to suit the existing luminaires. The light emitted from the LED lamps contains no UV or infrared component, so there is no risk of the light causing textiles or other materials to bleach or fade over time. The Philips CorePro LED PLC is available in conventional compact fluorescent lamp lengths in 18 and 26-watt versions and with either a two-pin or four-pin cap, making it suitable for use in lighting applications with conventional or electronic ballasts and compliant with all European regulations.

Philips Lighting North America Corp. Agrees to Pay $2 Million Civil Penalty for Failure to Report Defective Lamps and Implement Compliance Program

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced that Philips Lighting North America Corp. has agreed to pay a $2 million civil penalty to the government. The penalty settles charges that the company knowingly failed to report to CPSC, as required by federal law, information about a defect and an unreasonable risk of serious injury with EnergySaver compact fluorescent lamps. After numerous complaints about glass separating from the body of the lamps and striking people and objects, and attempting multiple design changes to fix the problem, Philips failed to report the matter to CPSC. The incidents resulted in 10 reports of lacerations and seven reports of property damage. In addition to paying the $2 million civil penalty, Philips has agreed to implement and maintain a compliance program to ensure compliance with the Consumer Product Safety Act (CPSA) and a related system of internal controls and procedures. The compliance program requires written standards and policies and written procedures to ensure that all information regarding the firm's compliance with the CPSA, including reports and complaints, whether an injury is referenced or not, is conveyed to the firm's responsible employees. The compliance program also must address: confidential employee reporting of compliance concerns to a senior manager; effective communication of compliance policies and procedures, including training; senior management responsibility for, and board oversight of, compliance; and requirements for record retention. The lamps were recalled in August 2011, after Philips had manufactured about 1.86 million units. Grocery and home center stores, online retailers, and professional electrical distributors sold the lamps from March 2007 through July 2011 for between $11 and $24 each. Philips does not admit to CPSC staff's charges. The penalty agreement has been accepted provisionally by the Commission by a 4 to 1 vote.
