Lighting. Technology. Sustainability. See the whole range of products
Starting with 1976, all ELBA products designed for the automotive industry started carrying the E19 European mark. ELBA has been the lighting producer for the whole range of models subsequently developed in partnership with Automobile Dacia, as well as for other types of vehicles. In 2003 and 2004, an ample investment programme was carried out with the purpose of aligning the production technology of the lighting devices (headlights and lamps) to the requirements of the vehicle producer DACIA Group Renault.
The ongoing developments in LED technology have opened the door for intelligent lighting. Since light-emitting diodes are semiconductors and also part of the digital spectrum, they can easily be connected within a network. Aware of the possibilities, manufacturers and vendors are keen on attaching lighting technology to the web, in more ways than one. Apps
