Posted on Wednesday, September 8th, 2010

Philips Vari-Lite is discontinuing the VL550 80V Wash luminaire product line in favor of more energy-efficient alternatives, including the VLX Wash luminaire. The company will also continue to make and sell the VL550, VL550D and the VL550CD Wash luminaires.

“Philips Vari-Lite has dedicated our most recent technology developments to the successful real-world application of energy-efficient lighting technologies,” noted Bob Schacherl, vice president of sales and marketing.  “We have seen great success with the VLX Wash and the patented LED technology driving the VLX light engine offers everything that we desired from the VL550 80V lamp, and much more.”

Although production of the VL550 80V has been discontinued, technical and service support will continue.  to find out more about the discontinuation of the VL550 80V, customers should contact their Philips Vari-Lite regional sales manager or authorized dealer.
