Wash & Ceiling Lights

Perfect lighting creates perfect atmospheres: There is nothing more perfect than natural light. Nature creates the perfect atmosphere and SCHOTT aims to enable the perfect lighting to set the stage in aircraft cabins. We are the only cabin lighting specialist to follow a holistic approach, orchestrating different light elements into one cabin lighting scenario. 

Smooth illumination, soothing ambience

Smooth illumination, soothing ambience
The smooth, uniform illumination offered by the SCHOTT HelioJet® SpectrumCC system creates a soothing atmosphere and a relaxing flight for passengers. The stable color performance comes from advanced sensor technology that controls the LEDs to ensure a smooth, uniform wash of light throughout the aircraft cabin.

Low cost of ownership

Low cost of ownership
Airlines benefit from the cost-saving design of SCHOTT HelioJet® SpectrumCC Wash and Ceiling Lights, with the HelioJet® system using 80% less diodes than other LED systems, meaning less maintenance. The system also has a long service life, demonstrating an impressive MTBF of more than one million flight hours.

SCHOTT HelioJet® SpectrumCC cabin lighting system

Unlimited lighting scenarios are possible with the SCHOTT HelioJet® SpectrumCC system, thanks to its extraordinary ability to create 16.7 million amazing colors. In flight, the solution intelligently reflects the time of the day and even natural phenomena, with scenarios such as sunrise, sunset and the Northern Lights.
 
CHARACTERISTICS
The system is especially designed for perfect display of chrono-biological color scenarios, with a special sensor controlling the color of its LEDs to ensure an exceptionally stable and smoothly uniform wash of light throughout the aircraft cabin. When the colors of LEDs start to drift due to ageing or temperature fluctuations, the sensor automatically corrects them to the system’s defined spectrum, so all the LEDs remain co-ordinated to the same color shade.
Signing of the human-centric lighting contract

Human-centric lighting

At Dubai Air Show 2019, SCHOTT, jetlite, Etihad Engineering and Lufthansa Technik have signed a ceremonial letter expressing co-operation in further exploring and promoting a new “Human-centric Lighting” technology and bringing it to the market

The collaboration aims at combining SCHOTT’s expertise in cabin lighting systems, jetlite’s holistic and scientifically-proven solution for jetlag reduction, Etihad Engineering’s and Lufthansa Technik’s expertise for aircraft systems integration, design certification, and innovation capabilities. The result is an effective system for automated cabin lighting scenarios that will positively affect air travelers’ well-being on multi-timezone flights by reducing jet lag and headaches, and enabling higher concentration and energy levels.

Benefits

Different from conventional LED cabin lighting systems, HelioJet® technology feeds LED light into an optical light converter that evenly distributes light over its entire length. The exceptionally stable performance and lack of color drift result from innovative sensor technology that constantly checks the light to provide fully balanced light output by compensating for the aging of the LEDs.
Just two multi-color LED clusters per 18-inch rod  LED chips feed light into both ends of the optical converter.
