It sheds a new light on things. That’s what Emteq says of its new ELW61 “very low profile” LED (light-emitting diode) cabin wash lighting technology. The board is .18 inches thick (.63 inches, including diodes) and 1.13 inches wide. According to the New Berlin, Wis. company, it is ideal for mounting in tight spaces, such as lens-covered headliner lighting. The ELW61 is step-dimmable, with a variable dimming option. Earlier this year, Emteq’s cabin lighting division introduced Quasar (ELW70 and ELW71), a full-spectrum mood-lighting system, which it says is brighter and more consistent than previous products. The key, said a spokesman, is in the mixing optics. A lightweight control unit contains programming to simultaneously manage 128 light assemblies.
