Industry news


Here you can read all about what's driving the lighting industry – from discontinued designs to the Eurovision Song Contest.

Discontinued_ERP_Halogen lamps
Advance notice: Phasing out of halogen lamps
here will soon be a new stage of the ErP directive. On 1 September 2018, the sixth stage of the EU directive 244/2009 will come into force, thus banning specific inefficient household lamps with non-directional light within the European Union. This also affects various halogen lamps! Yet a number of LED lamps can be used as direct replacements. These may be more expensive to buy than comparable halogen lamps, but pay for themselves through significantly lower energy consumption, not to mention a considerably longer service life. Nevertheless, virtually all types of LED are incompatible with DC voltage and vary in their dimming behaviour, so it’s worth stocking up on halogen lamps!
The characteristics of the affected lamps are as follows:
  • They emit non-directional light.
  • Areas of application: general lighting in particular, mood lighting, entrance lighting.
  • The bulbs are made of glass.
  • Most of the lamps affected have a screw fitting (E27 or E14 fitting).
  • The lamps do not need a transformer.
We will be publishing a separate newsletter for you, outlining the types of lamp that will be outlawed from 1 September 2018 and the alternatives to them. Since manufacturers and traders are permitted to continue to sell their stocks, you are welcome to stock up with us – thanks to our huge warehouse, we are still able to offer you plenty of halogen lamps in large quantities.
Do you need advice about changing over? Contact us, we’ll be happy to help you!
Product portfolio changes at Philips in March
Philips Lighting again phased out a few products at the end of March – some of these with replacements.
It was announced some time ago – now certain lamps from Philips’ well-known, conventional product portfolio are finally being discontinued. For many of these there is a suitable LED alternative, but it’s the end of the line for a few..

We can still supply you with the discontinued types while stocks last, of course, and naturally we also have the new LED alternatives in our range – we’ll be happy to advise you!

The lamps that are being discontinued without alternatives are:

Fluorescent lamps:
  • MASTER TL5 HE Secura 14W/840 UNP/40 (8711500954763)
  • MASTER TL5 HE Secura 28W/840 UNP/40 (8711500952158)
  • MASTER TL5 HE Secura 35W/840 UNP/40 (8711500952196)

We can have lamps treated with a splitter-proof coating for you!

Special lamps:
  • 13096 ELH 300W GY5.3 120V 1CT/24 (8711500410573)

Moreover, as of 1 April 2018, the following discontinued lamps will only be offered in the alternative LED versions by the manufacturer:
Discontinued types and matching LED replacement


LEE Filters stops production of HT films
Some of you will no doubt have heard: LEE Filters is currently having serious supply problems with the base material polycarbonate, meaning the HT range of films is being discontinued until further notice.

Here you can find an overview of the remaining stocks of HT films still available.
Once again, Osram will be on board at the Eurovision Song Contest
Osram is the official lighting partner for the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest (ESC) in Lisbon. For the fourth year in succession Osram will be supporting this mega event.

Over 800 entertainment lights from Osram in use
This year's ESC motto of the light manufacturer is "Leading Lights". At the ESC 2018, more than 750 Moving Lights by Claypaky, together with about 50 Static Lights by ADB, put the artists in the limelight. One highlight is the Axcor Profile 900, which is making its official debut in Lisbon. Claypaky's LED-based Profile Spot is the most advanced on the market. Its powerful 880 watts pure white LED light engine reaches 46,000 lumens. In addition, more than 300 products from the Scenius family will be used on the ESC stage. They are all equipped with highly efficient 1,400 Watt Osram lamps. The ESC participants will also be illuminated by Claypaky's Hepikos, a "Beam" and "Wash" hybrid light with an Osram HRI Sirius 440 Watt lamp, as well as the new ADB Klemantis, an asymmetrical Cyclorama light, which is based on a six-color LED Module.

Ten years of Osram Lok-it
After the Sirius HRI range celebrated its fifth birthday last year, this year the Lok-it brand is going one better: the bestseller has now been on the market for ten years! Of course, we offer our sincere congratulations, and to celebrate we take a look at this product family.

Lok-it! Power combines proven high-performance lamp technology with innovative features for use in the entertainment industry. With its high colour rendering index of 95, these lamps generate a light that is very close to natural daylight, allowing everything they illuminate to appear in natural colour tones. Thanks to their recent technical facelift, they are now even more efficient.

At this year’s Prolight + Sound, a new member of the family was on show: the Lok-it 2000/PS Blue. This is used in spotlights, enhancing their brightness intensity with its high colour temperature of 7,500k.

Philips illuminates longest container quay in Bremerhaven with 1,600 ClearFlood LED Floodlights
In Bremerhaven (Germany), EUROGATE not only operates the longest container quay in Europe - with its location directly at the North Sea it also has a preferred location. The world's largest container ships regularly visit the port. Currently around six million standard containers are handled here each year - which requires sustainability in all operating areas.

One measure to keep and ensure this sustainability was the new led illumination of the wharfage. In doing so a massive reduction of the energy consumption and CO2 emissions was as well an aim to achieve as to maintain the best possible visual comfort for the employees. Even as important was to avoid flashing the drivers sitting in transport vehicles at a height of 14 meters. To achieve that the light had to be directed and channeled exactly. Therefore, the choice fell on the LED floodlight “ClearFlood”.

ClearFlood floodlight systems are applicable for almost every operation thanks to their luminous flux range. Up-to-date led technology combined with efficient and high quality optics enable best possible light distribution and a high flexibility for every application. In addition the ClearFlood floodlight can be connected to various external controllers through its different interfaces, including DALI.

The aim was to illuminate an area of around three million square meters not only sustainably but also evenly and without glare. To achieve this goal 2,000 old luminares - each equipped with two high-pressure sodium lamps and a system output of 880 watts - needed to be replaced by state-of-the-art led floodlights. In autumn 2017 1,600 ClearFlood LED floodlights were installed on the factory premises. The ClearFlood LED floodlights come with a system power of only 440 watts each but they ensure a bright, uniform and true-to-colour illumination of the whole premises.

Furthermore, the LED floodlights provide energy savings up to 50 percent. This correlates to a CO2 emission reduction of around 100 tons each year.

Inside Multi-Lite and our employees


Introducing Aleksandra Bobrowski
Hello, my name is Aleksandra Bobrowski and I have been part of the Multi-Lite family since April 2017.

During my training in forwarding, I found that I was really fascinated by transportation and everything that relates to it – and thus began my journey into logistics.

My main tasks include creating and requesting all the documents required for export, transport and import into the relevant country. The creation of Export Accompanying Documents, certificates of origin and supplier declarations are as much a part of this as the comparison of transportation costs, the optimisation of transport routes, and communication with chambers of commerce and customs authorities. As you can see, work in the area of logistics is very varied, which is what makes it so exciting for me and ensures that I’m happy to come into the office every morning. The close collaboration with colleagues from the sales and export departments and the continual exchange with the warehouse mean we maintain very good relationships, so I’m working with people who are not just colleagues, but also friends. The positive atmosphere and the freedom to make certain decisions ourselves are things I really appreciate. I feel very much at home at Multi-Lite!
