Lippstadt, April 10, 2014. With its high-performance, top-flight LED headlamps and its innovative electric and electronic solutions for construction machinery, HELLA will be riding high at this year's SaMoTer, which is being held in the Italian city of Verona. The SaMoTer is regarded as one of the most important international exhibitions held in Italy for the building industry and it will be taking place from May 8 - 11 this spring. The HELLA exhibition stand covers an area of 80 square meters and can be found in Hall 9, Stand D4.
The C140 LED combination headlamp will be making its world premiere here. It is in actual fact the world's first ever combination headlamp where all the lighting functions are performed using LED technology. The incredibly stable and impact-resistant aluminum die-cast housing, a dispersion lens made of unbreakable plastic and a special heavy duty bracket all mean that the C140 LED can be used even in the toughest conditions. It is also resistant to vibrations, mechanical shocks, dust and moisture, thus allowing it to provide the best lighting performance at all times even in the most challenging environments. The special free-form reflector together with the LED light source provides significantly better lighting than conventional headlamps with halogen bulbs. And because of the long service life enjoyed by the LEDs, it is not necessary to change or replace the light source. The white light colour closely resembles daylight and, as such, allows fatigue-free working at night. Lower power consumption, as compared with that of halogen headlamps, also ensures that less fuel is used and it reduces strain on the alternator, too. These headlamps are suitable for use with 12 and 24 volt vehicle electric systems and they meet the requirements of both ECE and SAE.
HELLA is setting yet another trend with the new Q90 LED high performance worklight with plastic cooling elements, a worklight which opens up new avenues with an eye towards design and weight reduction. Unlike worklights with plastic housings available on the market to date, the new high performance worklight with plastic cooling elements means that now HELLA is able to attain or even exceed light output comparable to xenon technology. And this is also the case in very small designs. Instead of the usual aluminum cooling elements, special heat-conducting plastics are used, which dissipate the heat of the LEDs optimally, thus ensuring a very long service life. And the complete corrosion resistance of the plastics makes up a huge advantage over the aluminum. Furthermore, the Q90 LED worklights are lighter in weight and offer the best conditions for the creating of flexible solutions when it comes to design. And with the benefits of the also newly developed glass-fiber reinforced plastic brackets, the high performance worklights from HELLA with plastic cooling elements offer even more reliability during normal day-to-day use.
The exhibition stand will also be displaying more highlights revolving around product expansion in the field of worklights. One example is the way HELLA has now completed the successful Ultra Beam product family with the addition of an LED member, the Ultra Beam LED. HELLA is also presenting new product series from the world of worklights for mounting and installation, including the ultra-compact product family of the 50-millimeter LED worklights and the 90-millimeter LED module.
And the final icing on the cake is HELLA's presentation of innovative electric and electronic solutions, interior lamps, warning lights and beacons as well as the thermal management program of Behr Hella Service and also batteries, which HELLA Italy has now included in its program.
