Lights: which system is the right one?

Especially for motorists good main beams and the resulting visibility is an important safety aspect. While standard halogen headlights have a maximum range of about 140 metres, Xenon and LED lamps can reach up to 240 metres. Those who skimp on the ligthing of their vehicle not only has to accept inferior output and longevity, but also insufficient ligthing of the road ahead. This might be in compliance with the legal requirements, but especially driving off the beaten has demands much more from a light system. Technology has dramatically advanced in the past years and it's really time for an upgrade from traditional main beams to modern, durable ligthing technology! ...read more »

 

The classic one: halogen

While cost-efficient halogen lights are still widely used in vehicle lighting due to cost redution, the light output is not sufficient for many drivers. The light as a typical yellow tone to it and a irregular, diffuse light pattern. In comparison to LED lights, halogen headlights seem outdated. They are also susceptible to shocks and vibration which makes them less than perfect for off-road vehicles, often also equipped with a rough diesel engine.

 

The glaring one: Xenon

In contrast to this there are the brighter and more energy efficient Xenon lights. These gas-discharge lamps are produced to simulate natural daylight as closely as possible. The longevity of Xenon lights is about four times that of halogen lights. However, I high-tech electronic control unit is needed. Additionally self-cleaning systems and automatic levelling units are compulsory for all vehicles equipped with Xenon lights. High maintenance costs and a higher susceptibility - especially in off-road use - mean that Xenon lights are an expensice alternative that has today largely been replaced by modern LED lights.

 

The efficient one: LED lights

Today they are not only fitted to indicators, daylight driving lights and rear lights, but also as main beam units. Modern LED lights offer high light output, a light spectrum close to daylight, space-saving size and highly efficient energy consumtion as well as an abundance of design variants. Apart from a superior longevity compared to all other light systems, LED lights also offer the best vibration resistance by far. Even long drives on washboard roads can do no harm to these modern and durable lights.

LED lighting systems consist of one or more LED diodes which turn electrical current into light at very low heat emission. In a headlight an optical lense is placed in front ot the LED which focusses the beam, lighting the road ahead very evenly and at an optimum.

 

LED lights for off-road vehicles as an energy-saving aftermarket replacement

Apart from all the above mentioned advantages of LED lights, they also don't need the self-cleaning systems of the Xenon lights. Therefore, they can easily be installed even in older vehicles. An active beam leveling unit is also not necessary. All LED headlights sold by us are E-marked for legal use on public roads. Thus there is nothing  that prevents the simple and cost-effective replacement of your old headlights. In addition to main headlights we also supply optional spotlights, worklights - also in form of the popular lights bars - rear light and signal lights, as well as indicastor lights for all well-established off-road vehicles.
