Philips is this week highlighting its latest LED under-bonnet light, the Philips CBH52.
The CBH52 is the evolution of the popular CBH51.
It boasts a sturdy aluminium frame, a bar of LED lights and the ability to twist and extend at both ends, which means it can cater for vehicle bonnets between 1.10 and 2.08 meters.
The light module also slides so that it can positioned directly over where the light is needed.
The Philips CBH52 is equipped with 32 high quality Lumileds Luxeon LED lights, which provide a bright white light of up to 5800K.
The lamp has three different operating levels, 500 lumens in eco mode, moving up to 1200 lumens at its most powerful setting.
It also offers a very wide 120-degree beam angle and, with its 360-degree rotation, the CBH52 has exceptional under-bonnet illumination capability.
It is resistant to oil, grease and dust, is splash-proof to IP54 standards and, with its tough aluminium frame, boasts IK07 impact resistance.
The CBH 52 has the ability to run as a mains powered light, or to run cordless as a battery powered light, which is then charged from the mains electricity.
This hybrid charging gives it supreme flexibility and with a working time of up to five hours on a single charge it can be moved around wherever needed, so that over the course of a working day it should be able to be used as much as required.
Richard Armstrong from Lumileds, who are the global licensees of Philips Automotive Lighting products said: “The CBH 52 is a really excellent piece of kit.
“It performs really well and benefits from incorporating the results of all the feedback we have had from our previous under-bonnet lamps.
“It’s tough and incredibly flexible, making it suitable for any vehicle workshops and, indeed, many other applications.”
