Lumileds, has released a new Philips Automotive Lighting Catalogue featuring the latest innovations in automotive lighting technology for applications on all types of domestic and import cars, SUVs, light trucks, and vans from model years 2000 to 2017.
Vehicle application listings are presented in a convenient trilingual format. The catalogue also features new products for 2018 as well as a global anti-counterfeiting initiative. The new product offerings include Philips X-tremeUltinon LED Fog Lamps which are designed to deliver up to 200 percent brighter light for superior visibility.
Available as upgrades or replacements for H8, H11, and H16 halogen fog bulbs, these advanced LEDs are a perfect color match with Xenon HID headlights. The catalogue also highlights the Philips Xenon HID Anti-Counterfeit Program, a multi-faceted effort intended to help protect customers against fake Xenon HID bulbs.
Xenon HID lighting has become one of the most counterfeited products in the automotive replacement lighting market.
Fake Xenon HID bulbs often deliver poor illumination on the road and excessive glare for oncoming traffic, putting drivers and passengers in harm’s way. Counterfeit bulbs can also severely damage a vehicle’s headlamps or electronics.
Philips OE replacement Xenon HID packaging now features a Philips Certificate of Authenticity with a holographic seal, label ID, security code, and QR code. Distributors, retailers, and consumers can check the authenticity of the product, either by scanning the QR code or by entering the label ID and security code at www.philips.com/original. The program also features tamper-evident seals on both the product package and shipping carton.
