AUTOMOTIVE: EXTERIOR LIGHTING

The exterior body of a motor vehicle is made up of an extensive range of parts, each with their own colour and feel. Each component needs to be assembled in a way that portrays style, quality and harmony. An important component of the exterior of a vehicle is the lighting and reflective surfaces.

Lighting needs to conform to strict guidelines and regulations that control the amount of light and colour of the lights. Car lights are crucial in staying safe on the roads. It it therefore important to manage and control colour and illumination of the exterior lights and reflective surfaces like number plates.

In most cases, lighting components are manufactured by a wide range of manufacturers which causes challenges when assembling lights. Car part manufacturers need to comply with strict guidelines with regards to the colour and illumination of the lights they manufacture.

Colour and light measurement can be used to measure every part of a vehicles lighting and a majority of our instruments are designed specifically for the automotive industry.

Colour measurement assists car and parts manufacturers with the following:

  • Measure the colour of lights to control lighting according to standards
  • Measure the intensity of emitted lights
  • Control lighting to ensure vehicle safety standards
  • Avoid customer complaints due to colour
  • Comply with strict stipulations set by the automotive industry
