Technologically advanced car lighting offers distinctive light variants with LEDs that have a colouring rending index (CRI) of more than 90
From high-performance LEDs for headlights to infrared versions for driver monitoring and RGB solutions for interior lighting, LEDs are increasingly revolutionising the automotive sector. At the same time, car interiors are becoming increasingly important in the latest generation of vehicles and are undergoing a fundamental image change leading to corresponding effects on design and integrated applications.
However, in the field of ambient lighting, halogen lamps are still often used today, which not only requires significantly more energy but also considerably more installation space.
Now the Ostune E1608 and E3030 for automotive interior lighting offer a wide colour temperature range. Also, they provide an energy-efficient and space-saving alternative to conventional technologies for many applications: from cosy interior lighting and reading lights to mirror and footwell lighting.
Thanks to the broad colour range and ability to choose from many small bins, it becomes easy and precise to select white tones for making a fixed design element across vehicles. In addition to the particularly compact dimensions of 1.6mm x 0.8mm x 0.6mm (E1608) and 3.0mm x 3.0mm x 0.65mm (E3030), the products offer outstanding colour rendering in the car interior. While the Ostune E1608 covers the lower brightness range up to over 7 lumens, the E3030 covers the upper range up to over 70 lumens.
“Ambient lighting is becoming increasingly important with each new generation of vehicles,” explains Hermann Senninger, Marketing Manager for Automotive Interior at Osram Opto Semiconductors. “With our Ostune product family, completely new designs are now possible transforming the atmosphere in the interior from a functional workplace to a cosy living room simply by adjusting the colour temperature”.
