HELLA exhibits innovative LED lighting solutions at METS marine equipment trade show in Amsterdam

HELLA uses LED technology for its low power consumption and extremely long service life

Lippstadt, Germany, October 30, 2014. Lighting expert HELLA will be exhibiting at METS, the international trade fair for marine equipment and accessories from November 18 to 20, 2014 in Amsterdam, showcasing innovative LED lighting systems for illuminating ships and boats (hall 1/booth 01.345), including navigation lamps, deck floodlights, internal and external lighting and accent lighting. Energy is often a scarce resource out at sea. For this reason, efficient LED lighting plays a decisive role when it comes to reducing power consumption on board. With this in mind, HELLA uses innovative LED technology, which not only has low power consumption, but also offers additional benefits such as flexible designs, a long service life and no need for maintenance. Product highlights that await visitors at the trade fair booth include the Sea Hawk XLR deck floodlight, the Q90 LED worklight and fourth generation Module 70 LED worklights.


The LED deck floodlight Sea Hawk XLR is the latest and most high-performance product in the popular Sea Hawk range. With light output of 1,300 lumens and power consumption of just 18 watts, it allows for optimum illumination even under difficult conditions at sea. Furthermore, it is equipped with an integrated two-level switch (high/low), making it suitable for universal use. The new XLR light also stands out thanks to the combination of extremely durable, robust materials and highly developed electronics, which ensure the high level of luminous efficiency. The rust-free housing of the Sea Hawk XLR is injection molded using a non-metallic, thermally conductive polymer, and effectively dissipates the heat generated when the electronics are in operation. The properties of the innovative material also prevent the surface from being damaged and corroded, as is often the case with metal light housings used in the harsh marine environment.


What's more, HELLA's trade fair booth will also feature the new Q90 LED high-performance worklight with plastic cooling elements, which is offering new opportunities with regard to design and weight reduction. Unlike worklights with plastic housings available on the market to date, the new high-performance LED worklight means HELLA is able to attain or even exceed light output comparable to xenon technology, even in incredibly small designs. This involves using special heat-conducting plastics instead of aluminum cooling elements. These plastics perfectly dissipate the heat from the LEDs, ensuring a long service life. In addition, the complete corrosion resistance of the plastics makes up a huge advantage over the aluminum. Furthermore, the Q90 LED work lamps are lighter in weight and offer the best conditions for the creating of flexible solutions when it comes to design.


With the fourth generation Module 70 LED, HELLA is bringing a compact worklight with extremely high light output to the market. For the first time, it was possible in this compact design to achieve LED light outputs comparable to that of xenon. Equipped with three high-performance multi-chip LEDs, the worklight generates 1,800 measured lumens, all with energy consumption of just 30 watts. In comparison, the predecessor product only achieved 800 lumens. The housing of the Module 70 LED is made of aluminum and has cooling fins. These ensure the required heat dissipation for the high-power LEDs. Due to its compact shape, the robust light is suitable for use in a variety of areas.
