Although powerful and efficient work lamps are essential to enable those loading or unloading vehicles, or working adjacent to them if maintaining the highway, for example, to operate in safety, light can also be used for other welfare purposes, such as illuminating danger zones.

As  a result, alongside its wide range of high quality work lamps, HELLA, the globally recognised lighting specialist, has harnessed the potential that innovative lighting technology affords, to introduce its VISIOTECH projection module, which is suitable for applications from 12 to 48-volts.

With this small, but versatile addition, danger zones around the vehicle can be optically marked out, so that everyone in the affected area can be warned and protected. Previously, physical signs or barriers would have needed to be erected, which both costs time and takes resource away from the actual job in hand.

Using illumination technology, HELLA’s VISIOTECH light module can project a suitable warning symbol, such as an exclamation mark or hazardous area chevrons, onto the ground and so optically warn other vehicles or passers-by, drawing attention to any danger or to delineate certain work areas.

In addition, other projection symbols can be developed in collaboration with customers, which could be especially important in the construction and mining industries, where the danger zone can clearly and easily be identified for everyone on site, when shovels or dump trucks are being unloaded, for example.

Other scenarios include when employees working for municipal services have to regularly step down from the cab and are exposed to serious danger from other road users, or for trucks, ambulances and emergency vehicles, that require loading or safety areas that need to be clearly marked and highlighted.

With the VISIOTECH projection module solution, HELLA has enabled work safety and security during routine operations, to be significantly enhanced, no matter whether it’s day or night.
