Modern LED light line supplied for new Helsinki Metro trains

Teknoware has supplied modern continuous LED light lines for 20 new Helsinki metro trains. The light lines will illuminate the aisles of the coaches in addition to the advertising signs on the walls.

The design of the new light line requires a wide range of expertise in both electronics and optics so that the lighting is distributed evenly between the aisles and the advertising signs. It was possible, by changing the aluminium luminaire profile's properties, to optimise the amount of the light sources and the weight of the light fixture as well as to minimise the wiring. The delivery also includes dimmable cab lighting.

The lighting deliveries for the project were scheduled for 2014 and 2015.
