Philips Master LED Bulb 7W
Master LED creates a warm and comfortable ambience for hospitality venues, homes and restaurants. It creates such an ambience with superior lighting that has a customised spectrum, high CRI and deep dimming feature. The result? A beautiful lighting experience. What’s more, the innovative, trimless lens design will suit almost any interior decor with its clean and neat look.
7 watt LED bulb is equivalent to 35 watt incandescent bulb. LED bulbs are powered by 12V.
Delivering a warm, halogen-like accent beam, Philips Master LED Bulb 7W is an ideal retrofit solution for spot and general lighting applications in the hospitality industry. It is particularly suited to public areas such as receptions, lobbies, corridors, stairwells and washrooms, where the light is on all the time. The robustly designed MASTER LEDspot offers a choice of beam angles for a clearly defined beam spread.
No UV or IR Light
There is no UV or IR in the beam, making it suitable for illuminating heat-sensitive objects (food, organic materials, paintings, etc.). The Philips patented intelligent driver enables broad compatibility with existing electromagnetic and electronic halogen transformers. The dimmable versions drive further efficiencies while helping to create the desired atmosphere with Artiteq Combi Rail Pro Light.
2700K: Incandescent Light Bulb Colour
Traditional incandescent light bulbs illuminate when the filament inside the bulb gets so hot that it begins to emit light. At full brightness, the filament’s temperature is approximately 2700 degrees Kelvin, hence the 2700K rating. In short, a non-incandescent bulb with a 2700K colour temperature rating, will have a light colour similar to an incandescent bulb. If you like the colour of the traditional incandescent bulb, 2700K is the color temperature you need.
2700K provides a very nice and warm atmosphere, and is a great choice for living rooms and bedrooms where you would want to promote relaxation. Not everyone likes the 2700K incandescent bulb colour, however, and certain installation locations could benefit from a higher colour temperature. The primary concern with 2700K is that it can appear quite yellow or orange, such that everything appears “washed out” with a yellow hue.
3000K: A “Crisper” Alternative
3000K light is a slightly more pure, neutral white colour compared to 2700K. It has less of a yellow/orange hue, and will appear “crisper” for that reason. If you have any halogen bulbs e.g. MR16 style spotlights, there is a good chance they emit a 3000K light colour. If you personally don’t like the incandescent light bulb colour of 2700K, or you want to be able to have a bit more colour acuity, 3000K is most likely your best option. We typically recommend our customers to consider 3000K lighting where relaxation is not the primary objective.
A common concern we hear from customers is that they don’t want lights in their places that are too cold, stark or sterile. The good news is that by specifying an exact colour temperature of 3000K (and no higher), it is very unlikely that you feel that the lighting will be too cold or harsh. 3000K is still well within the range of “warm white” colour temperatures and there should be no concerns about it being too blue, intense or clinical.
How perceivable is the difference
To the naked eye, the difference is certainly noticeable, though it is by no means extreme. If you look at a 2700K and 3000K light bulb side-by-side, you will definitely be able to tell the difference. But, if you went to visit two different galleries with similar in lighting style, you may not consciously realise that the first one had 2700K and the second one had 3000K lighting. As long as a 2700K and 3000K light source are not immediately next to each other (e.g. mixing them in a single ceiling fan light) the two colour temperatures can blend fairly well in a single space, without any aesthetic concerns.
