Bringing light into the darkest corners

Philips’ workshop lights range has expanded with half a dozen lights, adding three flood lights and, most recently, an under-bonnet light, a head light and a Penlight.

Three Xperion 6000 flood lights, designed using feedback from a group of mechanics, focus the beam where needed and play music while you work. The Philips Xperion 6000 Flood and Flood Audio lights illuminate large, dark areas, producing 1,000 lumens from just 10 Watts of power within a wide beam. If less light and longer battery life are needed, the lamp can be dimmed to just 100-lumens. The compact Xperion 6000 Flood Mini delivers 500 lumens with the same adjustable beam as the Flood.

Every Xperion 6000 Flood light offers a variable beam and a focused beam that concentrates illumination within small areas, ideal for detailed inspections. “We worked closely with mechanics to design the beam adjustment mechanism from wide flood to focused illumination. Our collaboration resulted in an ergonomic smart-zoom knob that makes it easy to adjust the beam, even with gloves on,” said Pascal Charvat, Work Light Product Manager at Lumileds. The smart light also remembers a user’s last setting and restarts at this intensity.

Users can connect a phone or media player to the Philips Xperion Flood Audio and listen to music through its integrated speakers. Both the Flood and Flood Audio can be remotely powered on or off by waving a hand and the motion sensor only responds to a specific double-wave gesture and ignores unintended movements. They can also be used as a power bank to charge other devices, such as a phone. The smart handle can be used as a support to hold the light up by itself, as a hook to hang the light from, screwed onto a tripod, or attached to any metal surface with its integrated magnets.
