Converters and Power Supplies for the Communications, Automotive & Marine Industries



Achieving the correct ambient lighting in buses and coaches while driving at night can be a challenge. Some passengers may wish to snooze, others might like to read a book or magazine, check and update mobile phones or other media devices.

This causes the dilemma. Lights on or off? At night, typically lights are dimmed and passengers can choose a private reading light, usually situated in the ceiling of the
vehicle which then shines on the appropriate seat, illuminating their surroundings. However, to reach from the ceiling, such lights need to be quite bright. This can
cause annoyance to nearby passengers, as well as a significant rear view distraction to the driver as lights flash on and off while the vehicle is in motion. The Alfatronix
PVPro-L reading light offers the ideal solution. It can be installed in the back of the seat in front. The light ray can be directed to the left or right as well as forward or
backwards for discreet, yet maximum comfort for both the user and their neighbours.



As it is situated behind the seat, there is no stream of light
from the ceiling, so neither the driver nor other passengers
are distracted. The PVPro-L reading light is designed to
match with our already popular PVPro range of USB chargers. With passenger accessible charging and directable personal lighting, these two products offer a simple and inexpensive offering that significantly enhances customer experience.
