June 30, 2010
Date Announced: 30 Jun 2010 High efficient LEDs from Dominant Opto Technologies are upgrading the exterior illumination of Haima’s first SUV shown at the Beijing Auto Show on April 2010. This application proves that Dominant LEDs are not only a perfect fit for interior car illumination but being also the first choice for exterior automotive lighting. Haima’s SUV is expected to target the medium and high-end Sports Utility Vehicle market. Its new chassis based on the classic European SUV model platform with high traffic ability provides passengers a broad view from a very favorable seating position. Consumers will get an exceptional driving experience by Haima’s SUV gigantic and splendid appearance, an outstanding and exuberant power, precise and flexible handling with intensive and reliable safety features emphasized especially by the rear combination lamp design, based on a lighting system equipped with a compact LED technology.World wide adopted rear combination lamps integrate multiple signal lamp functions and serve as visual indicators informing other motorists and pedestrians of the driver's actions and/or intentions. Unlike the single point incandescent bulbs, several LEDs acting in conjunction providing the required intensity for the combined Stop and Tail lamp functions. The tail lamp light is equipped with 12 amber Power DomiLEDs and 6 amber Primax for the brake light. The tail lamp requires a lower intensity and needs to be regulated at a lower average power in comparison to the brake light function. Due to the very short switch-on time of LEDs compared to formerly used bulbs such LED brake lights are extending the reaction time for the following motorists helping them to avoid accidents.LEDs are solid-state light sources designed not only to efficiently produce light but also to deliver solutions that provide opportunities for styling differentiation and modularity while optimizing mechanical and electrical efficiency.Haima’s engineers team has opted LED light sources for their design choosing Power DomiLED and Primax. Decisive factors for their decision have been the low power consumption, high functionality and the extremely small size being a crucial benefit for automobile designers replacing traditional light sources with LEDs in automotive applications where limited space is essential.
