Philips EcoClassic Dimmable 28 Watts Clear Edison Screw

Philips EcoClassic Dimmable 28 Watts Clear Edison Screw


Here I received a package from our fellow member Andrew (Globe Collector). The camera doesn't show the true color of the lighted bulb running 120 Volts 60 Hz main. It is more orange than this.

At first I thought you'd found a 240v supply to run it off.

How this 240V halogen lamp, can even light on 120V? This is a 50% difference in voltage. Even a 24V LED marking light, can't light on a 12V battery.

I"m don't speak English well, and rely on online translating to write in this site.
Please forgive me if my choice of my words looks like offensive, while that isn't my intention.

I only working with the European date format (dd.mm.yyyy).

I lives in Israel, which is a 230-240V, 50hz country.

Well dor, it clearly is lighting up on 120v. I've run incandescents on as little as a tenth of their rated voltage and they still light up to varying degrees. You can't compare something with electronics in it like a 24v LED or a CFL against a resistive load like a halogen or incandescent.

LEDs have a threshold below which they will cease conducting, incandescents will glow even at a small fraction of their rated voltage - I use large incandescents as lamp-limiters for testing and running up vintage valve TVs and they glow at well below 100V.

Are the E27s a tight fit in your lampholders? I wouldn't mind getting a few switched ones but they don't seem to be available here with built-in switches, they are usually in the mains cable.

@BG101: It fits nicely though you can see wee bit exposed base

I used the small table lamp to show the lighted specimen

Pretty, please no more Chinese failure.

I see! Our ES lampholders usually have some sort of guard ring in the form of a ceramic (or some sort of heat-resistant plastic) collar to prevent fingers making contact with the cap although it can still be seen.

I always wire them with the live to the centre contact, however this is of no benefit when using non-polarized plugs as many of us do.

Our outlets here in Australia, (Type I, I think) are polarized with the active on the left. Not like those European things with cylindrical pins and the earth in some slots up the sides, An electrical inspector here would have a fit if he saw one attached to an appliance here!
I believe that in countries using such plug designs, dual-gang switches must break both active and neutral because you can never be sure which is which! Still, the blue wire in the lead can be active, and what about fuse holders, the type which take 3AG or M205 cartridges endways, how do you ensure the ring contact remains on the neutral side via the load so if some dolt tries to replace a fuse which is not blown while the thing is on and his other hand on the Earthed case.....

Zaaaouch!!!

Enjoy them while they last, because the power that be are getting ready to drop the axe on these too. If you need them as high powered linear loads to test or limit current to gear on your bench, I suggest you "buy up big" now.
These lamps were due to be banned for sale in Australia in October 2009, however there is a caviat which states, "Until replacement technology is available", and it must be this which is keeping them on the shelves. The replacement technology must present a linear resistance characteristic back to the mains so that existing phase-angle triac dimmers will continue to function normally. This is probably the only thing allowing them to continue to be available here.

Yep, halogens are set to be phased out by 2016 in Europe. It will be 2020 in the USA. In Japan it was decided that LEDs will be a requirement by 2020. So within 10-15 years LEDs may make pretty much 100% of the residential lighting market for drop in incandescent market.

May all the great lighting technologies have their place in history.

Yes I agree 100% with Dave. I think Australia has a 2015 cutoff point. Tough if you need a pilot lamp for your oven or a stop-tail lamp for your old Chevvy. The only filament lamps in Australia to be exempt are the 275 and 375w I.R. heat lamps used in bathroom radiant heaters.
All incandescent lamps must meet a Minimum Energy Performance Standard (M.E.P.S.) of 20lm/W by 2015 in Australia, but the "until replacement technology is available" caviat still stands.
In a wider context, and I'm going beyond what Dave has said and let this go out as a WARNING to all collectors, L.E.D.s are coming in a big way, like a Tsunami up an Estuary. They will flush away almost all existing technologies with maybe the exception of the largest H.I.D.. but even those will go eventually.
Like the way transistors and S.C.R.s replaced Vacuum Tubes/Thermionic Valves and Thyratrons. C.R.T.s, a more elaborate type of Thermionic Valve, took longer to replace, but it happened eventually. Only X-Ray tubes seem to be holding on because of their Physics. Out with the old Bohr Model devices and in with the new Quantum Mechanical modeled devices.
I would not like to work at a place like Venture Lighting which has put all its eggs in the Metal Halide basket and be paying off a mortgage. Osram/Sylvania have the right idea and I saw advertisments about a year back for both electrical engineers to design the impedance converters and solid state physicists to make the L.E.D. dies and garnet phosphors at their Danvers plant in Boston. Only those who keep up with the technology will survive, the rest will "crash and burn".
The coming of L.E.D.s will be stealthy, like the coming of gas filled coiled tungsten filament lamps in the 19 teens usurping the old carbon filaments. Today the wheel still turns slowly and has just started to move again after being nearly stationary for 80 years.
It is up to all of us, LAMP COLLECTORS all over the World, to get and preserve the current technology NOW! In 25 years lamps will only appear in cartoons and old movies!

Well just wait to see if LED proves itself. The industry has already pretty much decided to focus mainly on LED though, based on its physics and other unique performance characteristics. Although I doubt incandescents will truly go away. We still have candles now for decoration, incandescent reproduction lamps will always be made for decorative purposes.

I have seen "corbcob" type L.E.D. candles, but they just don't look quite the same. A woman in Melbourne with a business in Pahran called "Fat Shack Antique" is importing reproduction Squirrel Cage Tungsten lamps, presumably from China. They are not a patch on the Ferrowatt ones. On the boxes they say "Special Halogen Lamp"! Presumably to fool the customs officials!

Tbh the only decent LED lamps out there are Sylvanias 7.5w RefLED and Philips' remote phosphor.

I don't think all the obsolete technology on light bulb will ever go away. There will always be sort of 'standard' that remain in place until no more existing fixture would fit in the old light bulb technology. There is no such as one model fit into everything. That goes with the Newspaper versus Internet

There is one think that stuck in my mind: Do you remember the Buck Rodgers 25th Century that was made in the TV series in 1980? There was one console that had the U-Bent fluorescent light is being used. (That reminds me to post a image grab for the Gallery of Lights sometimes.) Now image that in real life in the 25th century, they will be an existing technology from the 20th century is still being used, just like the covered wagon

Pretty, please no more Chinese failure.
