Suresnes, France – Discover the new Philips CBH52 high-quality hybrid aluminum LED bonnet lamp, developed by Lumileds. Packed with powerful LUXEON LEDs and 6000 K color temperature, this lamp gives you an intensely bright but natural white light. Easily attachable to car, van or truck bonnets, you’ll be able to see every detail as you work, even when looking deep inside the engine.

A powerful and flexible light for vehicle bonnets

The Philips CBH52 hybrid professional bonnet lamp features 32 powerful Lumileds LUXEON LEDs, providing an intense white light and a bright wide beam in all conditions. Designed to give you clear vision as you work, its white light of up to 5800 Kelvin is also gentle on your eyes to prevent fatigue. Its exceptional 120°-wide beam angle allows the light to be distributed evenly across the illuminated area, giving you the optimum overview and lighting every detail with pinpoint precision.

The Philips CBH52 offers three useful power modes. Boost mode gives you a powerful 1,200 lumens of light, helping you spot even the smallest of details. The balanced mode of 900 lumens allows you to see everything and work comfortably for hours at a time. And if you’re using the lamp while unplugged for an extended period, you can select the Eco mode to preserve battery life. At a reduced 500-lumen output you will still enjoy high-quality bright light for up to 9 long hours.

The Philips CBH52 is highly versatile, offering two integrated telescopic hooks which are extendable on both sides and can be rotated through 360°” said Swati Singh, EMEA Product manager for LED at Lumileds. The hooks feature wider openings and are covered with soft rubber for easy and safe attachment. Its mount stretches from 1.10 to 2.08 meters, enabling it to be used in a wide variety of locations. Whether under the bonnet, roof or rear hatch of any car, van or truck, this lamp has the flexibility you need.

Thanks to the Philips CBH52 unique design, you can slide the lighting module  along the mount to the area you want to illuminate.

Long-lasting performance

For extended periods of use, the Philips CBH52 is equipped with a long, robust 5-metre cable (100-240 V), providing continuous lighting as you work. Just like the lamp itself, the cable is built to survive tough workshop environments and withstand chemicals such as hydrocarbons. Need to move around your workshop as you work? No problem. Simply remove the cable from the Philips CBH52. The battery provides you with up to 5 hours of continuous cordless use in Eco mode (500 lumens).

See when the battery needs charging. The Philips CBH52 features a battery-status indicator showing how long the work lamp can function before the battery runs down completely. Never again run out of power in the middle of a job. The indicator also displays the time remaining until the battery is fully charged.

Enhanced resistance for tough workshop environments

Complying with international impact-resistance standard IK07, the robust aluminum housing of the Philips CBH52 is designed to withstand tough working environments. Because we know even the most careful workers sometimes drop their tools. Philips CBH52 conforms to IP54 international splash and dust resistance rating. Built to rigorous manufacturing standards with multiple sealing processes, your lamp is resistant to splashed water and protected from dust. Resilient to most chemicals and workshop solvents, your Philips CBH52 is built to survive in daily workshop environments.

The Philips CBH52 is probably the most advanced hybrid bonnet LED lamp on the market, achieving high standards in both robust construction and LED lighting.” Added Swati Singh.
