Xenon headlights: advantages and installation
Xenon headlights, unlike others, instead ofAn incandescent helix has two built-in electrodes. They are a short distance from each other in a tube of quartz glass, filled with salts and metal gases. Between these electrodes, using a high-voltage pulse, the gas acquires an electrically conductive property and an electrical charge occurs. Therefore, the xenon headlights are also called gas-discharge headlamps. Electrons under this action move between the electrodes, and charge the gas so that the energy begins to appear in the light form. The color of the lamps varies depending on the gas used. The color temperature is the physical quantity that determines the emission spectrum, and on which the brightness of the headlights depends. There is an erroneous opinion that at a high temperature the lamp will be more powerful, but this is just a model telling what exactly the temperature of the perfectly heated body should be, so that it will shine with certain colors. The higher it is, the shade of the headlight will be closer to the violet, the lower - to the yellow one.
Car owners who chose such lights for theirvehicles, are well aware of the advantages of their choice. To date, the installation of xenon is the best solution to the issue of light for the machine. There are several reasons for this, first of all:
- Xenon headlights are a new level of comfortwhile driving a car. Eyes get tired a little less, since the driver does not need to strain his eyesight in order to distinguish between possible sources of danger on the roads.
- Additional security guarantee.Light beams of xenon rays have an important characteristic: in rain drops they do not dissipate, and therefore there is no light wall. Accordingly, the best visibility that halogen or bi-xenon headlights can not give reduces the risk of accidents, which is especially important in bad weather.
- Such lamps are quite economical.In comparison with the usual incandescent lamps, they consume significantly less energy, and accordingly, do not increase fuel consumption. In addition, xenon uses the energy received only for its intended purpose and practically does not spend it on heating the air. Such lamps serve much longer than halogen lamps, and they can not burn out.
- Since its inception, xenon headlights have become an integral attribute of a good expensive car. After all, the sky-blue color is modern, prestigious and just actual.
How to Install Xenon
Naturally, the process of equipping the machine with suchheadlights is not the easiest, so it's safer and easier to entrust this occupation to specialists. Installation of such lamps in the service center is a guarantee of high-quality and correct performance of works. The result in any case is worth the effort and money spent. Xenon headlights instantly turn night to day, the road itself is much better illuminated, even if it is snowing or raining. However, it is worthwhile to be prepared for the fact that, getting used to good, with halogen lighting no longer want to go.
