The standard halogen lamp – a thing not a capricious and budget, but the quality of coverage often leaves much to be desired. Going at speed, and tired eyes peer into the darkness. This situation can and must change radically. Assistant in this case – xenon headlights. It has many advantages, and most importantly – that it glow better perceived by the human eye.
This fact is well known, do not live in the Stone Age. Xenon light source such as HID (High Intensity Discharge) – a discharge lamp, filled with a mixture of noble gases including Xenon. The principle of the lamp is as follows. At the initial ignition of the lamp electrodes to its hazardous voltages and under the influence of electromagnetic fields in the bulb starts the process of ionization of the particles to form a gas-discharge arc. After that is required to maintain the arc voltage is reduced to about 80 volts.
In the laboratory, and tuning Design Car-Lab you can buy a kit xenon light for 3000 rubles! It includes: * 2 lamps, 2 blocks * Ignition * connecting wires and brackets. The main characteristics of a xenon lamp: 35W input power consumption voltage 12V Color temperature 4300K (yellow) 5000K (white), 6000K (white-blue); 8000K (bluish) In contrast to halogen lamps with xenon lamps instead of incandescent spiral built two electrodes, which are immobile condition. At a certain distance from each other in full of gas and metal salts of gas charging tube of quartz glass. With gas high-voltage pulse between the two electrodes is electrically conductive and an electrical discharge occurs. So called xenon lamps as lamps, gas discharge. The electrons move between the electrodes and electrically charged gas in such a way that the energy manifested in the form of light. The color temperature of an electric discharge is determined by some mixture of gases and mixtures of metal which are used with these xenon bulbs. Choice of color is based on gas used. HID xenon lamp radiation, the emitted spectrum is closest to the sun the light of day. The result is a bright light and less eye fatigue when driving at the dark. Xenon bulbs are twice as high intensity light beam compared to classical halogen, at a much lower current consumption. In addition, they surely will allocate your car among hundreds of others. Xenon lamps can be used in the headlights near, far and fog light without replacing the standard wiring. Currently, xenon lamps are available with virtually all the most common caps: H1, H3, H4, H7, H8, H9, H11, H13, H27, 9004 (NV2), 9005 (HB3), 9006 (HB4), 9007 (HB5), D2R, D2S. The advantages of xenon bulbs in comparison with halogen: * big light output due to higher (by a factor of 2-3) the relation of power to the power flux energy consumption, which provides almost double the illumination of the road in the dark * much longer life (1000-2500 instead of 300-500 hours) * large economy (35W instead of 55-100W) * stability flux, regardless of possible fluctuations of voltage the car * greater comfort due to excellent visibility of the road at night and in adverse weather conditions, which allows the driver to get rid of undue stress, vibration resistance * (no filament) * lower heating temperature.
