HERO is the first ever corner led module that replaces
a vehicles turn signal, or brake light and then adds warning lights to your
vehicle without drilling any holes in factory housings. HERO inserts directly
into the socket hole of the OE bulb. This means no more dismounting and
drilling of the light chamber - say goodbye to long adhesive dry times - and it
powers right from the socket, simplifying the wiring process.
You must buy one HERO LED and one ADAPTER bezel that
matches the appropriate housing (see the HERO Application overview).
HERO goes above and beyond the standard concealed
lightheads by also functioning as the original indicator light. The adapters
position the lighthead in the exact place of the original bulb which always
ensures equal light distribution and good visibility.
Every HERO model is able to flash in all four warning
colors - Red / Blue / Amber / White. So the same HERO lighthead can be used for
police and security vehicles, ambulances, Fire trucks, tow trucks, roadside
assistance and construction vehicles.
HERO is designed for Stop, Tail, Turn and Reverse light applications and comes
in three different indicator colors – White or Amber. When you select Amber or
White, you are actually selecting the color of the OEM vehicle indicator.
So an Amber HERO goes into a turn signal assembly while a White HERO goes into
a brake assembly. The HERO LED's have Blue, Amber, White, and Red warning
diodes built into both models.
HELLA’s newest invention is the HERO Flex series.
The Emergency vehicle upfitting industry nowadays tends to use
external controllers to program/sync their lights. Installers put the warning
lights to a “steady burn” flash pattern and use the controller’s computer
software to program the light’s flashing frequency the color sequences. The
HERO Flex series was designed specifically for this application, and therefore
only comes with this “steady burn” pattern.
The HERO Flex series is for
external controller/siren usage only !!!
The HERO Flex holds four individual trigger wires, one for each
warning color (R/B/W/A). Installers connect the colored trigger wire(s), they
intend to flash the HERO on, to the controller 12V+ output and start the
lighthead programming with the computer software. The installer has full
flexibility with the warning color combinations. The HERO Flex series Hideaways
can be used as a single-, dual-, triple- or even quad color LED lighthead. The
lightheads also have the capability to be operated with a dimmed power input
signal (example: cruise/low light mode).
