Indoor train illumination for the renovation project on the Netherlands’ DDZ

Rome’s Pantheon temple dome the symbol for a circle-shaped LED light

Teknoware has delivered the indoor train illumination for the renovation project on the Netherlands’ DDZ commuter trains. This project was significant because it concerns one of the first group of trains  to be completely LED-illuminated.  The renovation has been performed by Dutch NedTrain, and there are about 200 double-decker railroad cars involved in the project.

An additional lighting demand was the new design requirements, which could only be realised with LED lights.  One example is the circle-shaped, very low light measuring about a metre in diameter for project delivery, whose model is the dome opening in Rome’s Pantheon temple.  It was possible to realise this solution only with LED technology combined with special optics.

About ten various types of lights – the largest of which uses 100 LEDs – were delivered for the illumination of the railroad cars. Teknoware utilises mathematical modelling to achieve, with various LEDs, the colour of the light required.
