Highly efficient matrix beam solutions for electromobility
Eco-Matrixbeam modules for matrix headlamps from KYOCERA AVX Components (Salzburg) support various light functions with very low energy consumption and maximum freedom of design
Independent from the type of engine the overall energy consumption of all main and auxiliary electronic units has an impact on the actual range between refueling or charging.
Eco-Matrixbeam reduces the energy consumption and power loss for an increased range
While for cars with conventional engines, for hybrid electric vehicles (HEV) and fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEV) the above-mentioned facts cause a higher fuel consumption, but affects directly the range for battery electric vehicles (BEV). Therefor the overall power loss of state-of-the-art headlamps and rear lights plays an even bigger role. Especially LED matrix head lamps with different light functions and an increasing pixel count provide several advantages for safe driving at dark and wet conditions. But on the other hand, these accomplishments are attended by an increasing energy consumption of different electronic modules. So, with the Eco-Matrixbeam KYOCERA AVX Components (Salzburg) has developed an alternative solution for matrix applications featuring low energy consumption compared to conventional concepts, but with unrestricted functionality. Primarily this will be accomplished by means of highly efficient optics in combination with customized LED matrix light sources. Beside the efficiency new standards are set concerning optics size and the weight of the entire electronic module.
Eco-Matrixbeam sets standards concerning scalability despite very small module size
The Eco-Matrixbeam technology enables very slim headlamp designs of modern vehicles and represents a future-proof scalable solution with its small optics. Although the compact module size facilitates an implementation into headlamp housings with limited space. Depending on the requirements for light distribution and functionality of the matrix beam individual types of the LED light source as well as the optics can be realized by considering specific technology guide lines. Furthermore, small module sizes provide low system costs also for individual applications.
