Osram Cool Blue range receives winter update

Osram has revamped its Cool Blue range of Halogen and HID bulbs, relaunching its portfolio with a new look, enhanced features and new part numbers.

The changes to the range will mean the new CBN (Cool Blue Next Generation) part numbers will become available and phased in when old stocks of CBI (Cool Blue Intense) part numbers have been phased out and sold through.

The products will now also be boxed in freshly updated turquoise colour packaging, with a more modern design, including the integration of a QR code on the backside of the packs for easy access to additional product information online.

The range includes the HID (Xenon) Xenarc Cool Blue Intense (Next Generation), now offering extra white light for that LED look, colour temperatures of up to 6,200K and up to 150 per cent more brightness.

These will replace the current Xenarc Cool Blue Intense (CBI) range, but the bulbs themselves will have the same optical appearance.

Meanwhile, the halogen Cool Blue Intense (Next Generation) also features extra white light for that LED look, and a colour temperature of up to 5,000K and up to 100 per cent more brightness.

Additionally, Osram’s Diadem Chrome range will also take on the new packaging design changes, which will be phased in when stocks of the old packaging have phased out.

The bulbs in the Diadem Chrome range only appear amber when switched on, and will otherwise remain almost invisible in the headlamp unit, giving an homogenous appearance.

It also features a slick, cutting-edge interference and absorber coating. These can be used to replace amber bulbs in indicator applications.
