2018 Caravan Salon: HELLA displays individual lighting designs and electronics trends
- The Shapeline modular lamp series creates individual light signatures
- A new LED lamp control unit helps monitoring lighting functions
The Shapeline modular lamp series will be the stand's highlight. It covers multiple lighting functions, from reversing and rear fog lights via side marker and clearance lamps to position and daytime running lights. Shapeline is available in two different design versions: the classic straight-line "Tech Design" and the dynamically curved "Style Design". Under the motto "Design your light", any vehicle series' front, side and rear end can be individually designed using the HELLA Shapeline online configurator (www.hella.com/shapeline/). The company illustrates how such a light signature might look like on various vehicle outlines.
In order to have the best possible lighting beyond the traditional camping site, HELLA offers various signal lights and auxiliary lamps. With its 3600 lumens, the BL 470 Diffuse Flood work light provides powerful close-range ground illumination, comparable to flood lights on buildings. The opaque cover lens distributing the light homogeneously and on a large scale is the main factor here. The headlamp can be installed on the side below the awning or at the vehicle's rear, thus providing optimal visibility when loading and unloading. An additional advantage: despite the powerful light output, energy consumption is only 36 watts. The RokLUME 380 N has a special light range of up to 400 meters. HELLA has developed it especially for off-road purposes. The auxiliary lamp's 7800 lumens, break-proof housing and NanoSafe coating are suitable for any use.
The LED lamp control unit monitoring lighting functions and presented at the Caravan Salon for the very first time will be a clear highlight in the electronics area. The device is available in two versions: the basic control unit enables the legally required direction indicator failure monitor. The Premium control unit also provides convenient monitoring of all additional lighting functions and can additionally measure the energy requirements of the headlamp or the LED light. Its design is water- and dust-proof, has overheat protection and a long guaranteed service life and functional safety.
Visitors can interactively experience a striking selection of the HELLA electronics portfolio. The ELIGRO electronics tool makes it possible to select individual products and receive additional information in the form of explanatory videos or to download short informational PDFs (www.hella.com/electronics-tool).
