Flexible lighting strip to be demonstrated in Hamburg
By Izzy Kington on 22nd March 2019
A new flexible lighting strip (FLS) aircraft mood light solution will be among the HMI solutions demonstrated by TT Electronics at Aircraft Interiors Expo, to be held on April 2-4, 2019, in Hamburg, Germany.
TT Electronics designs and manufactures custom solutions using materials certified for flight and will feature several at the show including passenger control units (PCUs), cabin signage, mood lighting, seat identification and suite information panels.
The company called on its expertise in thin-film backlighting to develop its latest mood light, which it describes as a lightweight, homogeneous, and power-efficient alternative to current competitive offerings. Available in single color and RGB versions, the FLS is designed with a variety of electronic communication protocols suitable for the requirements of specific airline programs. It can be mechanically fixed and has a bend radius of 75mm (3in).
TT Electronics says the FLS is the result of its partnerships in the material supply chain to provide a product platform that is both robust and certifiable for large commercial aircraft.
“Ambient lighting remains an important element of the first and business class passenger experience,” said Terry Moss, sales director, TT Electronics IoT solutions, HMI. “In a departure from the old-fashioned box design, contemporary and future cabin design is moving to a more aesthetically pleasing and space-efficient environment filled with curves. At AIX we’ll be highlighting our FLS, which offers the perfect blend of form and function to meet the demands of the passenger, the designer and the manufacturer.”
