Federal-Mogul Introduces Next-Generation Lamp For Vehicle Interior Lighting

Stocks in this article: FDMLIEP

SOUTHFIELD, Mich., Dec. 6, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Federal-Mogul Corporation (NASDAQ: FDML) has developed two innovations that make vehicle interior lighting systems slimmer, cooler, more efficient and more stylish. The company's new ultrathin lighting combines LEDs and a specially designed lamp lens to reduce the profile of interior lamps by up to 60 percent. In addition to improving headroom, facilitating reduced power consumption and enabling greater interior styling, NovaLens™ provides consistent and even illumination without "hot spots."

Growing demand for vehicles with higher seating positions and lower rooflines means vehicle manufacturers operate within tightening constraints to create sufficient headroom for occupants. Increasing headroom is a contributing factor in improving the safety of occupants during a rollover event.

"Unlike conventional interior lighting, Federal-Mogul's new ultrathin lighting with NovaLens provides a more stylish, integrated interior lighting solution," said Ramzi Hermiz, Federal-Mogul's senior vice president, Vehicle Safety and Protection. "With interior lamp profiles typically of 30mm or more, the size of interior lighting modules has been a limiting factor for vehicle manufacturers. Our new lamp is just 12mm thick, giving vehicle designers an extra 18mm of space and increased styling design opportunities."

LEDs emit cones of light that generate variations in intensity and visible hot spots within the lens of a traditional interior lamp.

NovaLens is a specially designed lens that incorporates unique geometric features which 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. The outer surface of NovaLens contains several parallel optical flutes. Light from the LEDs is reflected from the optical features and then is spread evenly by the flutes to deliver a uniform distribution of light over the target zones.
