Abstract
In the field of wiring technology more and more use of optical fibers for the lightning of cars in our products is made. It can be chosen between injection moulded light distribution systems, class optical fibers as well as polymer optical fibers. It is important to know for which application the different technologies are the best. Flexible light transmitting systems can be installed together with the wire harness and are treatable as conventional cooper cables. The mayor advantage is the simplified sealing and simplified maintenance. In the field of reach light transmitting systems the big advantage is easy assembly and easy handling of the product as well as predictable optical characteristics of the light transmitting system. Examples of application are the parking light BMW 5xx the lightning of the seat control or gear box in the Mercedes S class as well as the door lightning of the BMW 7xx.
