STG Aerospace has launched a liTeMood LED reading light as a plug and play replacement for Boeing 737 NG incandescent reading lights.
The passenger centric lighting units feature a patented photometric design that delivers a square light pattern defining the individual passenger space while preventing light spill onto neighbouring passengers.
Also designed to reduce the glare on tray tables, eBooks and tablets, STG’s liTeMood LED reading lights optimise the retail environment. They feature a multi-phosphor LED with a high Colour Rendering Index (CRI) in the excess of 95 which renders colours more vividly, making magazines more readable, inflight meals more enticing and on board merchandise more attractive for purchase.
Dr Sean O’Kell, director of Innovation at STG Aerospace, declared, “Our new reading light is the latest example of our commitment to human-centric lighting and has been designed to tick all the boxes – the quality of light, the quantity of light, the passenger experience and the ease of installation – for the airline it really is just like changing a bulb.”
“At STG Aerospace we ensure airlines receive top quality, highly reliable next generation lighting systems that genuinely deliver an improved passenger experience and improved operational metrics for the airlines,” continued Nigel Duncan, CEO of STG Aerospace. “Attention must be paid to providing passengers with a sense of control and personal privacy in their immediate environment while offering airlines a high quality lighting ambience and high CRI levels to optimise their retail environment and increase yields.”
STG claims its liTeMood LED reading lights are also 10 times more reliable than incandescent lights, offering an 80% power reduction to increase the aircraft electrical efficiency.
