Reducing operating costs

with LED lighting technology

The advantages of LED lighting technology are obvious: first and foremost, there are huge savings to be made in terms of energy costs over the lifetime of a vehicle (we calculate up to 30 %). A low build-up of heat has a positive effect on the cooling units in the trains. This also leads to lower maintenance costs.

In technical terms too, everything favours LED technology: no UV/IR radiation, LEDs are do not require slow-blow fuses, are resistant to vibrations and shocks and cause no noise of flicker.
Finally, they are free of harmful materials and recyclable and contribute to resource-friendly production. That’s why the following customers have chosen this technology.
