HelioJet® SpectrumCC Wins German Innovation Award in Gold

The SCHOTT LED cabin lighting system received the German Innovation Award in the Lighting Solutions category for its unique concept and extraordinary performance.
Out of over 650 entries, the jury of the German Design Council recognized SCHOTT’s LED cabin lighting system HelioJet® SpectrumCC as the ultimate winner in the category “Lighting Solutions”.

“This LED lighting system, which was specially developed for aircraft cabins, provides maximum homogenous lighting and color stability for a broad range of lighting scenarios, including exact brand colors”, stated the German Design Council in its laudation. “This groundbreaking system also uses considerably fewer LEDs, thus cutting costs.”

Dr. Armin Plichta, Director Aviation & Automotive Business accepted the award at a ceremony in Berlin on June 6th. “We have am LED lighting system that is very different from the rest. And we are very excited that the jury awarded our unique product layout and extraordinary performance” explains Plichta.

HelioJet® technology feeds in light from both sides into an optical light converter. A unique sensor system measures and regulates each LED, ensuring even light distribution and color stability throughout the entire cabin over the entire lifetime. HelioJet® is the only system worldwide that allows replacing lamps after years, and no difference is visible comparing old and new LEDs.

HelioJet®SpectrumCC is flying with Lufthansa and SAS for years integrated into the NICE cabin management system. HelioJet® supports wireless control via tablet, smartphone or smartwatch. The system is easy to install and is ecologically friendly.
