Lighting and electronics expert Hella presented some of its latest products at Agritechnica in Hanover last week (November 14-20), with its Smart Worklight System taking centre stage.
The Smart Worklight System was deemed so impressive by a panel of industry experts that it gained a nomination for the Systems and Components Trophy – Engineers’ Choice, presented by the expo organisers DLG.
This system allows worklights to be controlled individually using vehicle intelligence without the customer requiring new wiring harnesses or modifications to the existing wiring harnesses. This allows manufacturers to offer optional and smart lighting packages without having to change the vehicle architecture.
Another highlight was the new LED worklight series known as the Modular Worklight. Its design was based on the Shapeline modular lighting series.
With the beacon K-LED Rebelution Hella has transferred EdgeLight technology from the automotive sector and then applied for patent approval for the optical warning system segment.
The light emerges from a narrow, 8mm-high light band instead of through a dome. The warning effect is thus ensured: The K-LED Rebelution meets the legal requirements of the European ECE R 65 directive for beacons and is therefore approved to be used on public roads.
Hella not only uses its decades of experience in large-scale passenger car production to develop new lighting technologies, but also contributes them to the design and further development of electronic components. With the further development of 77GHz radar technology, Hella demonstrated its high level of expertise in the field of radar sensor technology at the fair.
