Default Over View Of Head Lights

The lighting system of a motor vehicle consists of lighting and signalling devices mounted or integrated to various parts of a motor vehicle.These may include the front sides rear and in some cases,the top of the vehicle.The purpose of this system is to provide illumination for the driver.This enables safe vehicle operation after dark and increases the conspicuity of the vehicle.Headlights are also referred as Head Lamps,Which helps the driver to view the road at night time and bad weather.

In the early stages headlamps were fueled by acetylene or oil,and were introduced in the late 1880s.The first electric headlamps were introduced in 1898 on the Columbia Electric Car from the Electric Vehicle Company of Hartford,Connecticut,and were optional.Later different types of lights are came into existence.There are several headlight types.

Halogen headlights are the most commonly used headlights today because they're cheap and easy to install.With the right maintenance,they can last up until 1,000 hours, but the drawback is that they're dim,when compared to other headlight types.If you have bluish-white headlights,note that they are xenon headlights.These headlights have become popular these days,since they provide better illumination results in improved peripheral vision for longer distance.Using these lights a driver will be able to see colors much better at night.

Adaptive front lighting systems are actually "smart" headlights because they're able to adjust to various situations.They provide superb illumination and modify the beam pattern depending on the vehicle's speed and road conditions.The great advantage with these headlights is that they're moved by the computer to where light is required.The downside to AFS headlights is that they use halogen bulbs,and they're even more expensive than xenon headlights.

LED headlights are "adaptive" lighting systems because they adjust to where the light is needed with the help of a computer.Since LED lights use less power,they emit almost zero heat,so they won't overheat even if used for long hours.LED headlights offer around 30,000 hours of useful life,and that's longer than any other headlight type could give.The only thing to be consider is these lights are much expensive.Headlights are exposed to different situations,their lenses become cloudy over time and when that happens,their lighting ability is affected.What you can actually do is to clean the headlight lenses with either a glass cleaner or plastic safe degreaser.Though minor problems can be resolved by using a clear adhesive tape to fix it.Still replacing the entire headlight assembly is must for the safety.
