Complete kit with solid brass, water resistant spotlights designed for low profile installation. These lamps provide excellent output for specific illumination of desired features (exterior architecture, trees, outbuildings, and more). Bulbs are optional and available in halogen or LED. This kit or its lamps can be used with any other Budding low voltage kits.

STEP 1. Make sure power is turned OFF before installing or servicing this fixture.

STEP 2. This fixture must be mounted to a junction box or mounting stake that is UL Listed for low voltage and wet locations. Mounting stakes S1, S6, S7, S8, or canopy MC1, M0040, or junction box TM1 may be used.

STEP 3. Loosen shroud screw and remove shroud by pulling and twisting off of housing.

STEP 4. Install specified lamp (not included) by pressing firmly through clip and into socket. Remember never touch the lamp with bare hands as hand oils will damage bulb.

STEP 5. Push shroud completely back into housing and tighten shroud screw to secure shroud in place.

STEP 6. Loosen screw in arm, aim fixture as desired and tighten screw.

STEP 7. Wire fixture following instructions below for the low voltage connection setup.

STEP 8. Turn power ON.

Low voltage cable connector to be used with 10 or 12 gauge supply cable and 18 gauge fixture cable. Philips recommends using SPT-3 water resistant (marked "WA", "W" or similar marking) supply cable such as our SCW500- 10/BSCW500-10 or our SCW100-12/BSCW100-12. Philips also recommends ordering the entire system, which includes the power console (maximum 25 Amps, 15 Volts per circuit), fixture(s) (low voltage cable connector included) and supply cable to ensure proper installation and operation.
When using our supply cable, it can be laid on top of the ground, placed under "ground cover" (that is, shallow burial less than 6 inches or 15.2 cm deep), or directly buried in accordance with the NEC. If not using our cable, per UL 1838-Standard for Low Voltage Landscape Lighting Systems, the secondary cable must be SPT-3 or suitable for wet locations, sunlight resistant and direct burial per UL 493 and sized per UL 1838, and it must be buried less than 6 inches (15.2 cm).
Philips recommends a minimum depth of 4 inches when burying in the lawn to prevent damage from aerators or other lawn plugging equipment. The 18 gauge fixture cable (provided with fixture) must be protected by routing in close proximity to the fixture or secured to a building structure such as a house or deck. The fixture cable must be cut off so that it is connected to the low voltage cable connector within 6 inches (15.2 cm) of the fixture or the building structure. When making an underground connection to the 10 or 12 gauge supply cable (not provided), the fixture cable must not be buried more than 6 inches (15.2 cm). WARNING-Mount the luminaire in or on non-combustible mounting surfaces only.
WARNING-Risk of Electric Shock. Install all luminaires 10 feet (3.05m) or more from a pool, spa, or fountain. 1. Connect the supply cable to the terminals on the power console (transformer) and turn ON. 2. Disassemble the connector by removing the Phillips head screw. 3. Inspect the connector to ensure the prongs are straight. If the prongs are bent, straighten with pliers. 4. Insert the end of the fixture cable into the square opening in the connector body. Bend wire over so that wire is laying in
the recess marked '18 GA'. This will help hold the wire in place while performing steps 5 and 6. Only 2-wire cable is to be
used and the common (smooth) wire and hot (ribbed) wires must be oriented as shown. 5. Press the supply cable into the recess marked '10,12/2 GA' on the connector body. Again the common (smooth) wires
and the hot (ribbed) wires must be oriented as shown. 6. Press the connector cover onto the connector body, making sure the screw holes line up with each other. 7. Assemble the connector by tightening the Phillips head screw. NOTE: Make sure the metal prongs in the connector
pierce all 4 wires; the fixture will light as the prongs pierce the wires.

Philips joins The Climate Group’s LED lighting campaign

Philips has become a corporate partner in The Climate Group’s three-year Clean Revolution campaign, which aims to speed up the global switch to LED lighting.

Philips Lighting has become the first corporate partner to join The Climate Group's three-year Clean Revolution campaign. The partnership aims to speed up the global switch to LED lighting, which offers extraordinary opportunities for significant cuts in both energy use and worldwide carbon-dioxide emissions, according to the participants.

The Climate Group is an independent, not-for-profit organization working with governments and business leaders to advance policies, technologies and financing that will accelerate low-carbon economic growth. In December 2009, The Climate Group launched its LightSavers program of outdoor LED lighting demonstration projects. [more]

Philips Hadco lights up the City of Boston

- Savings of $1.1 million annually in electricity costs expected with 14,000 new energy-efficient LED luminaires.

- LEDs will help eliminate more than 5,000 tons of greenhouse gas annually.

Philips Hadco and Hurry Associates recently partnered with the City of Boston to convert more than 14,000 of their mercury vapor street and roadway luminaires to energy efficient LED technology. The collaboration further strengthens both Philips Hadco as a leader in sustainable LED lighting solutions and the City of Boston as one of the greenest cities in the U.S. The conversion is expected to save the city approximately 8.9 million kilowatt hours (KWh) of energy each year.

Colour rendering from LED lighting

Specifying white LEDs can be far more complicated than you think

For general road lighting, Lumileds' Hechfellner thinks streetlights need more reason and less specmanship. After all, you will not have forgotten that the incumbent technology has a CRI of 25 max.

"Is the objective to make cars look good, or higher energy efficiency?" he asks. "We could see 10-15% extra energy efficiency if we went from 70 CRI to 60 CRI. We are struggling to persuade the industry." So don't over-specify CRI if you don't need it, unless you like wasting power.
