Aircraft lighting plays an important role on the travelers. Although it is not at the high end of details passengers actively observe during a flight, the indirect impact can be quite meaningful. It is known to bring a calming effect to the cabin, and sometimes it gives the perception of more space.
Recently, STG Aerospace, the famous manufacturer of LED cabin lighting for the Boeing 737 and 757, has improved its products for the Airbus A320 and A330 family of aircraft. Also, according to STG says install time of its LiTeMood LED has come down to under five hours from beginning to finish. The process includes removing the existing fluorescent tube lights with new brackets and full spectrum LED fixtures. STG’s solution requires no new aircraft software or control panel; instead, it employs the existing flight attendant service panel and pre-set brightness levels.
LiTeMood is pre-configured at installation to deliver specific colours and moving scenes, however, it can be updated post-installation to display new scenes and colours by use of an infrared device. If an airline wants to update its lighting scheme for a particular holiday or event, it is able to do so without any hardware modifications.
