Ultrathin interior lighting

  • 06-Jan-2012 04:42 EST


Federal-Mogul’s ultrathin lighting combines LEDs and a specially designed lamp lens to reduce the profile of vehicle interior lamps by up to 60%, claims the company. In addition to improving headroom, facilitating reduced power consumption, and offering increased interior styling opportunities, NovaLens offers consistent and even illumination without “hot spots.” NovaLens’ specially designed lens incorporates unique geometric features that reflect and refract the light from LEDs positioned at opposite sides of the lamp to produce visually uniform illumination from the entire lens. The inner surface of NovaLens incorporates optical features that vary in shape, depth, and position, depending on their distance from the nearest LED.
