LED headlight with light/dark boundary for the ICE4
- Project period: 2013 – 2021
- Location: Germany
- Product category: Lighting Systems
Best visibility thanks to the innovative LED headlight with light/dark boundary in the new ICE 4 . For the first time worldwide, this new development, equipped with the latest and energy-saving LED technology including an integrated light/dark boundary, was installed on a railway vehicle.
The LED headlight with light/dark boundary can be used without blinding drivers of approaching vehicles. Therefore, a prolonged and continuous use of the headlight function is possible, which also significantly improves the track illumination – especially regarding long-distance ranges. Due to the earlier recognition of track signs and track conditions, reaction time for drivers increases resulting in a greater safety for himself and his passengers.
The LED headlight with light/dark boundary fulfills the actual standards according to TSI LOC&PAS:2014 respective EN 15153-1:2013, as well as the SIRF (safety guideline railway vehicle) by the integrated monitoring and diagnostic function to detect control and LED failures.
Due to the modular design, the LED-headlight with light/dark boundary can easily be adapted for other vehicles. Besides the new ICE 4, this product is actually used for refurbishment projects of locomotives BR101 and BR185.
