"The consistent, homogeneous appearance of our new ultrathin lamp with NovaLens is unrivaled in the industry," Hermiz said. "It provides exciting new opportunities for interior designers and a competitive advantage for Federal-Mogul's customers. Because the unique properties of NovaLens mean fewer LEDs are required, it also is a highly-efficient solution. Federal-Mogul's combination of low-energy LEDs with our innovative NovaLens offers greater design alternatives while improving packaging, safety and energy efficiency."
LED technology can draw less than 2W, depending on customer requirements, compared to 10W for the equivalent incandescent bulbs. This reduced electrical demand cuts CO2 emissions and helps reduce battery drain, which is especially important in electric vehicles. LEDs also last more than ten times as long as incandescent bulbs and operate 95 degrees Celsius cooler, improving thermal management, installation and styling options.
Federal-Mogul is in discussion with vehicle manufacturers on several continents regarding its new ultrathin lamp with NovaLens. The company's first production applications will reach the market during 2012. The technology was developed at Federal-Mogul's Lighting Technical Center in Ann Arbor, Mich., one of the company's 18 globally networked technical centers.
