2018 Caravan Salon: HELLA displays individual lighting designs and electronics trends

  • The Shapeline modular lamp series creates individual light signatures
  • A new LED lamp control unit helps monitoring lighting functions

Chipping Warden, August 2018. From 25th August to 2nd September, HELLA, the lighting and electronics expert, will present its broad product portfolio at the 2018 Caravan Salon in Dusseldorf, the world's largest trade fair for motorhomes and caravans (Hall 13 / A03).

The Shapeline modular lamp series, which caters for multiple lighting functions, from reversing and rear fog lights, through side marker and clearance lamps, to position and daytime running lights, will be the highlight of the stand. Shapeline is available in two different design versions: the classic straight-line ‘Tech Design’ and the dynamically curved ‘Style Design’. Under the motto ‘Design your light’, the front, side and rear end of any vehicle series can be individually designed using the HELLA Shapeline online configurator (www.hella.com/shapeline/). The company will also illustrate how such a light signature might look on various vehicle outlines.

In order to have the best possible lighting when away from the campsite, HELLA offers various signal lights and auxiliary lamps.  With its 3600 lumens, the BL 470 Diffuse Flood work light provides powerful close-range ground illumination, comparable to flood lights on buildings.  The opaque cover lens distributing the light homogeneously, and on a large scale, is the main factor in achieving this effect. The headlamp can be installed on the side below the awning or at the rear of the vehicle, thus providing optimal visibility when loading and unloading. In addition, despite the powerful light output, energy consumption is only 36 watts. HELLA has also developed the 7800 lumens, RokLUME 380 N auxiliary lamp, especially for off-road purposes with a special light range of up to 400 metres. The robust housing and NanoSafe coating make it suitable for any use.

The LED lamp control unit monitoring lighting functions, which will be presented at Caravan Salon for the first time, will be an obvious highlight in the field of electronics. The device is available in two versions: the basic control unit enables the legally required direction indicator failure monitor, whereas the premium control unit also provides convenient monitoring of all additional lighting functions and can also measure the energy requirements of the headlamp or the LED light. Its design is water and dust-proof, has overheat protection, functional safety and a guaranteed long service life.

Visitors can experience a striking selection of the HELLA electronics portfolio interactively. The ELIGRO electronics tool for example, makes it possible to select individual products and receive additional information in the form of explanatory videos or to download short informational PDFs (www.hella.com/electronics-tool).
