Product family information

The very compact filament in the Compact Source series helps create a proportionately high beam intensity and the Compact Source range is therefore ideal for the latest generation of high-performance luminaires, Also, thanks to their low energy consumption, each dimmer can serve significantly more fixtures, thereby reducing overall dimmer costs. What’s more, the Compact Source lamps incorporate the innovative P3 technology, developed by Philips, which enables the lamps to be used at higher temperatures in any burning position. This results in longer lamp lifetimes, reduced lamp replacement costs, and a more consistent lighting performance over the whole lifetime of the lamp.


Reduced energy consumption allows more luminaires to be operated on each dimmer
P3 technology for Reliability, Quality and Freedom:
Reliability - longer lifetime with fewer early failures
Quality - excellent storage characteristics and consistent performance over time
Freedom - in both luminaire design and burning position
