LOW VOLTAGE CABLE CONNECTOR INSTRUCTIONS 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 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
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.

MSSLC Publishes Model Specification
The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Municipal Solid-State Street Lighting Consortium (MSSLC) published
version 1.0 of their new Model Specification for LED Roadway Luminaires. This document was developed by
Consortium members with input from a manufacturer’s working group. Philips Hadco collaborated with this
group in reviewing and providing input to the specification. [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
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.
DOE Announces Philips as First Winner of the L Prize Competition
On August 3, 2011, the U.S.
