Hella introduces LED street lighting range

Best known for its automotive lighting systems, German electronics manufacturer Hella is now introducing the first prototypes of its new street lighting range, which is based on modern LED technology and which should be ready for series production by the end of the year. The newly developed, modular, Eco StreetLine system is initially being trialed in Hella’s home town of Lippstadt.

In comparison with conventional types of street lighting, the Eco StreetLine has several advantages. Energy consumption can be decreased by up to 50% just through the use of the LED technology. With a service life of approximately 12 years, the LED modules in the range are designed in such a way that they hardly ever need to be serviced or replaced, therefore allowing operating costs to be cut significantly.

The lamp comprises a total of four modules, each with eight optical units. Each of these units consists of a specially developed optical lens and an LED light source located behind it. The lenses in the module direct the light onto the street and can be rotated through 90°, so that lighting can be adjusted corresponding to the street situation, for example along the fronts of houses or on street corners. The Eco StreetLine does not cause any light smog and can be easily integrated into the existing infrastructure.
