Philips MASTERColour CDM evolution lamps: Sparkling light that lasts and lasts

Jan. 7, 2013
Date Announced: 07 Jan 2013 Eindhoven, the Netherlands – the MASTERColour CDM Evolution is the perfect fit for retailers searching for the unbeatable combination of crisp white sparkling light and optimal total cost of ownership. The new CDM Evolution lamp offers a longer life (20,000 hours) and the highest efficacy (up to 120 lm/W) of any compact HID retail solution in the market, while retaining the sparkling, crisp white light designed to flatter the merchandise within a shop. With a Colour Rendering Index (CRI) of 90 for all lamp types textures and colours can be presented in the best possible manner, now also for 20W solutions! The CDM Evolution also has an exceptional colour consistency over the long lifetime of the lamp with very limited colour spread.MasterColour CDM Evolution represents another major step in achieving the lowest total cost of ownership over the lifetime of a lighting installation: Only one replacement lamp is required to cover an 8 year lifetime of a shop lighting scheme (when assuming group replacement @ 10% failures). The CDM Evolution range will first be available in 20W and 35 W 3000K versions and will come in the standard G12 and G8.5 lamp holders. Throughout the year the range will be extended with 50 and 70 W versions.Ruud van der Zanden, Business Development CDM systems, OEM Lighting Sources & Elctronics commented on the launch: “When looking for the perfect lighting source that matches the needs of retailers the CDM Evolution range is nearing perfection when it comes to quality. It has a unique and superb colour consistency over the entire life of the lamp. It will deliver on the promise to make a shop look irresistible, season after season with the brightest light and with an extensive, rich set of colours. Our MASTERColour CDM Evolution adds sparkle that lasts.”All lamps are designed according to IEC standard and are retrofit when used with electronic gear and allow a simple upgrade, of current CDM and/or Elite lamps in existing luminaires with minimal design-in efforts. Performance over life of CDM Evolution has been confirmed in combination with Philips PrimaVision and AspiraVision gear.
