Colored wash lighting highlights cabin and seat elements
Astronics Corporation has introduced Nuancia RGBW Strip Lights to provide flexible illumination options for aircraft seats and cabins.
The system allows aircraft manufacturers and airlines to program moodlighting systems to accommodate more than 16 million colors, create preset color scenarios, and present color
“There is a significant increase in ambient lighting interest from airlines and aircraft OEMs, so to service our customers, we’ve taken our existing ultra-reliable lighting products and re-engineered them to provide the industry’s smallest bend radius and closest set LEDs for a flexible, consistent color experience,” explained Astronics President, Fabrice Berthelot. “The possibilities for exciting new cabin lighting designs are immense.”
Nuancia is the first cabin lighting product offering customizable lengths from 100 millimeter (mm) to 2,500mm and with LEDs placed in 50mm increments, which reduces gaps between lights for a smooth, continuous color wash.
At only 6mm thick and with a 50mm bend radius, Nuancia is the most flexible product available to illuminate the cabin environment - ceilings, alcoves, seats, walls, windows, and more. Customers can install Nuancia in straight or curved applications, via multiple mounting methods, to highlight the cabin without any hot spots. A dedicated lighting management system controls the strip lights to ensure smooth transitions between lighting phases for various airplane operations, such as takeoff, meal service, or inflight entertainment time. The system uses red, green, blue, and white (RGBW) LED technology to deliver the industry’s most comprehensive set of color choices with options for a range of white lights, from cool to warm settings.
Astronics will display the new Nuancia lights in Stand 3B30 at the upcoming Aircraft Interiors Expo, April 2-4, in Hamburg Germany.
