The NightViu lighting series was developed especially for applications in the construction machinery sector. With uniform illumination at automotive level, the series provides better visibility in the work area, improving safety and efficiency on construction sites. The modular housing has a minimum level of component complexity and offers users more than enough flexibility to cover a wide range of lighting requirements. The new system also boasts increased lighting efficiency when compared to many systems previously available on the market.
The complex environmental conditions in the construction industry also place high demands on mechanical and electrical components, so work lights must be highly efficient, high-quality and robust. This is why the work lights in the NightViu series feature an efficient reflector lens design with six powerful LEDs and four cover lenses. With approximately 100 lumens per watt, these LED lights have an enhanced light efficiency level compared to other LEDs for construction machinery—so sensitive vehicle electronics are protected, and short circuits caused by excessive power consumption are prevented. Luminous flux options range from 1,500 and 2,500 to 3,500 lumens.
The light beams cover a wide range of lighting scenarios for the work area around the vehicle, from close-range to far-field illumination. These beams have different lighting patterns, ranging from highly focused spotlight illumination to floodlighting and from a wide to an extremely wide illumination field.
The aluminum housings are designed for hard off-highway use and are protected against water and dust in compliance with the IP6K8 standard. The lights also withstand temperatures between 40°C and more than 90°C and pass vibration tests of up to 12 g root mean square. They undergo stringent tests such as water and temperature resistance in Continental’s certified quality laboratory. The lights’ flexible installation system for standard or heavy-duty mounting also enables retrofitting in many different positions on construction vehicles.
