Hella is renowned for its original equipment (OE) lighting, electronic components and system solutions, as well as its comprehensive support programmes for its valued aftermarket customers.
In combination with headlamps, rear lamps and other lighting components, bulbs play a key role in providing effective illumination and, with headlights in particular, optimal visibility of the road ahead for the driver, which makes them one of the most important items when it comes to driving safely.
As selecting the correct bulb for headlights, ancillary and even interior lights is often far from easy, Hella has developed a useful online tool – www.Hella.com/MicroSite/bulbs/en/ – to take the doubt out of the selection.
Hella’sfilament bulb configuration tool helps both motor factors and workshops easily find the most suitable bulb for the vehicle– passenger car, van or truck – by giving them access to the company’s diverse range of product solutions.
Once the vehicle make, model, year and lighting type have been selected, the tool reveals the standard bulb for the application, while also providing information concerning Hella’s alternative options. These include Lifetime, Performance, Design and Xenon, making it easy for users to find the most suitable bulb quickly and efficiently. They can then take advantage of the tool’s ability to demonstrate the visual effect of each option, through its ‘compare mode’ tab.
The ‘compare mode’ tab allows users to view a 3D visualisation for each selection in order for them to see how the bulbs will illuminate the road in a realistic environment, so making it easier to understand the difference between them and therefore find the most appropriate solution. This feature is also ideal for the workshop/customer relationship, as it allows them to demonstrate a commitment to provide customers with choice.
