Offered by Astronics PGA, a wholly owned subsidiary of Astronics
Corporation, this product serves emerging lighting trends in aircraft
cabin designs and upgrades. “There is a significant increase in ambient
lighting interest from airlines and aircraft OEMs, so to service our
customers, we’ve taken our existing ultra-reliable lighting products and
re-engineered them to provide the industry’s smallest bend radius and
closest set LEDs for a flexible, consistent color experience,” explained
Fabrice Berthelot, President of Astronics PGA. “The possibilities for
exciting new cabin lighting designs are immense.”

Nuancia is the first cabin lighting product offering customizable
lengths from 100 millimeter (mm) to 2,500 mm and with LEDs placed in 50
mm increments, which reduces gaps between lights for a smooth,
continuous color wash.

At only 6 mm thick and with a 50 mm bend radius, Nuancia is the most
flexible product available to illuminate the cabin environment –
ceilings, alcoves, seats, walls, windows, and more. Customers can
install Nuancia in straight or curved applications, via multiple
mounting methods, to highlight the cabin without any hot spots. A
dedicated lighting management system controls the strip lights to ensure
smooth transitions between lighting phases for various airplane
operations, such as takeoff, meal service, or inflight entertainment
time. The system uses red, green, blue, and white (RGBW) LED technology
to deliver the industry’s most comprehensive set of color choices with
options for a range of white lights, from cool to warm settings.

Astronics will display the new Nuancia lights in Stand 3B30 at the
upcoming Aircraft Interiors Expo, April 2-4, in Hamburg Germany.
