Hella SMART Cornering Light
Occupational safety is of considerable importance in mines. Work is often performed at night or underground, where there is no natural light. The vehicle lighting is often the only light source. Poor lighting leads to accidents and tiredness, and is consequently an increased safety risk. HELLA therefore develops lighting solutions specially for the mining industry.
The new SMART Cornering Light from HELLA ensures greater safety in mines, when turning the vehicle left or right. When turning the vehicle in the dark, drivers often only realise that there is a precipice or wall in the way when it is too late. The SMART Cornering Light from HELLA enables drivers to see obstacles in good time and take the appropriate action. This ensures greater comfort and safety when working.
The solution is available as a set with 2 work lights and a smart control unit. The control unit communicates with the two work lights - one of which is fitted to the front left of the vehicle, the other front right. Based on the vehicle's movements, either the right-hand or left-hand work light is activated automatically when turning the vehicle in the respective direction.
The LED SMART Cornering Light is quick and easy to retrofit, and immediately ensures improved illumination when turning the vehicle left or right. In underground mines where there is often no lighting, this can prevent accidents and vehicle repair downtimes, and therefore additional costs.
Attached, a full product brief.
The new flexible LED light strip from HELLA for industrial applications is available in different section lengths and can be combined to a length of up to 80 or 100 meters depending on the country. It is available as both 110 and 230 V AC version and is made of a non-flammable material (PVC flammability class V0).
Installation is easy, thanks to the specially designed clips. Therefore, FlexaTec can be used, for example, in underground mining applications or conveyor belt systems.
The light ensures homogenous illumination of the working environment. With a colour temperature of 5,000 Kelvin, the FlexaTec light is also very similar to daylight. This means that colours can be distinguished more clearly in the dark, thus making sensory perception significantly easier for the human eye. In turn, this prevents workers' eyes from tiring quickly during work in dark environments, such as in underground mining. Other light colours are available on request.
