Hamburg: Lufthansa Technik and SCHOTT develop new aircraft cabin lighting system

Posted 9 April 2013 · Add Comment

Lufthansa Technik AG and SCHOTT AG are presenting a completely new development in cabin lighting systems for aircraft.

For the first time, aircraft owners can take advantage of LED technology while avoiding the color changes that occur when LEDs age. The new system "nicemood", which has already been approved for use in aircraft, mixes and regulates the light output of different diodes and thus enables significant cost
savings compared with traditional lighting while dramatically improving lighting quality. It is suitable for any size aircraft and can be integrated in any cabin, from the smallest business jet to a widebody plane.

The system consists of four elements: Lufthansa Technik's wireless access point and interface unit, SCHOTT's Heliojet TCS (True Colour Stabilization) - the actual lighting system and the control system interface, which can be either a VIP passenger's smart phone or a touch-screen control used by the cabin crew.

The newly developed control system compensates even for age-related colour changes in individual diodes to ensure that the endresult is always as desired - complete with the option of color sequences and scenarios. nicemood thus enables a significant reduction in ongoing maintenance work and expense (following the initial installation) while simultaneously improving the cabin "mood"perceived by the passenger.

nicemood is available both in classic white and an individually controllable full-color spectrum (including white).
