STG Aerospace has unveiled the first product of its Universal Lighting Family. The Curve is an LED flex light designed to provide seamless lighting while being adaptable to multiple installations and applications.
The Curve can be used throughout the aircraft, including in wet areas, to provide animated lighting within a slimline, flexible structure that can shape around bends. The Curve has a 30mm-convex and 50mm-concave bend radius. Its footprint is 6mm x 15mm, meaning it can be installed on a range of monuments and in other locations.
The light output can be split into individually addressable 4in segments. Each segment’s colour, transition and intensity is controlled independently with the choice of 16 million colours. Customers can design bespoke ambiences such as a Northern Lights effect over a bar front or a pulsing light in a footwell.
STG also said the product reduced CMS data traffic, as internal storage means just 1 byte of data can launch a light sequence.
“We are extremely excited to be launching The Curve,” said Pierre Michard of STG. “It’s the first product to join our highly anticipated Universal Lighting Family and we know our customers will be impressed with how The Curve solves the lighting challenges the industry is facing. In fact, it has already been selected for an OEM application on a widebody platform.”
“The Curve’s potential uses in VVIP cabins are numerous with its physical and functional flexibility, as well as its smaller scale footprint,” said Natalie Rodriguez, a VVIP aircraft interior designer. “Love how multiple mood lighting effects are achievable in a single strip through sections – perfect for ambience customisation.”
