Philips has increased its CosmoPolis lamp’s lifetime from to four to six years.

CosmoPolis Xtra is designed specifically for outdoor lighting, and the company says it sets new standards in high performance and low operating costs for municipalities.

Providing warm white light, the upgraded system lasts up to 24,000 burning hours. This is particularly important in outdoor lighting, where investments are made for several decades.

CosmoPolis Xtra delivers up to 120lm/W and is available in 45, 60, 90 and 140W versions. The dimmable system delivers efficient warm-white light at a colour temperature of 2800K. This is the preferred temperature for outdoor applications – enhancing the ambience of an outdoor space and ensuring safety on roads and motorways, and in residential and urban areas.

David Vanbeselaere, senior business development manager HID systems, said: ‘Many local governments, urban planners and municipalities are under pressure to reduce costs and carbon emissions while ensuring that safety and atmosphere in towns and cities are not sacrificed. With EU legislation in 2012 phasing out the use of inefficient conventional lighting, the new CosmoPolis Xtra provides an excellent alternative.’
