Why do you need additional lighting?

The primary task of additional lights is to illuminate the road and the sides of it, so that you can see better in the dark and therefore travel more safely on the roads. With better visibility, you have a greater chance of seeing if an animal appears on the roadside or if there is something ahead on the road that requires you to stop. If you often drive in the dark, you may find that the car’s built-in lighting system is not quite sufficient. Then, extra lighting can be a good alternative for you.

Are there rules for how many additional lights you can have?

Well, not for how many extra lights you can have, but for how much light is emitted. According to the ECE regulations, the sum of the values of high beams and extra lights must not exceed 100. The higher the value, the stronger the light. However, there are exceptions to this in Sweden, and it is only the regular high beams that must not exceed 100. Therefore, if you are going to drive abroad, it may be wise to disconnect the extra lights.

How do I install lighting on my vehicle?

If you are a bit handy, there are all possibilities to install extra lighting on your vehicle yourself. If you feel that you do not want to tackle it, you are better off contacting a workshop that can help you. Feel free to ask your reseller, they can surely recommend someone good in your area.

How do I know which product is best for my vehicle?

If you are unsure which product suits you best, we recommend that you contact your nearest BriodLights reseller. They know our products inside and out and can help you choose the right BriodLights product based on your needs and preferences.

What is Kelvin?

Kelvin is a unit used when talking about color temperature. Despite its name, it has nothing to do with temperature but rather deals with the effect of light. Light emitted from a light source always has a certain degree of warmth or coolness to it. If the light has a warm hue (yellow), the color temperature is low, while a cool hue (blue) indicates a high color temperature. Different color temperatures are suitable for different things, and when it comes to driving and work lighting, many consider a color temperature of around 5000 K to be optimal. For comparison, a cozy lamp at home has about 3000 K, and daylight outdoors is around 6000 K.

What does light pattern mean?

Extra lighting is often labeled with the light pattern they have. Flood has a broad light pattern that streams out to the sides, providing good visibility over the roadside. Pencil has an extra long range on the beam where the light is centered straight ahead rather than to the sides. Combo is precisely as the name suggests, a combination of pencil and flood. The type of light pattern that is optimal for you depends on the conditions you usually drive in.

What is reference value?

The reference value is a value given to high beam and extra lighting. According to the ECE regulation, the sum of the values of high beam and extra lighting must not exceed 100. The higher the value, the stronger the light. In Sweden, there are exceptions to this, and only the regular high beam headlamps must not exceed 100.

What does thermal control mean?

When an LED light is lit, heat is generated. The more current that is supplied, the hotter the lamp becomes. High heat, in turn, causes the lamp’s lifespan and luminosity to deteriorate more quickly. A lamp with a thermal control system controls the current supply to protect the lamp from overheating.

What is the difference between theoretical and actual lumens?

Theoretical lumens are a calculated measure that combines the brightness of each individual diode. However, there are many losses along the way due to the electronics in the lamp, which means that the actual lumens are significantly lower and are a more realistic measure of how much light the lamp actually emits.

What is Canbus?

Simplified, Canbus is a system that exists in all modern vehicles that enables the vehicle’s various components, including lighting, to communicate with each other. When the driver needs to be alerted that, for example, a lamp has gone out, the Canbus system is activated, sending a signal so that a lamp on the instrument panel lights up. When extra equipment is marked with Canbus, it means that the product is compatible with the vehicle’s Canbus system.

What does it mean for a lamp to be E-marked?

All approved vehicle lighting has had a label with a circle or square with an E inside followed by a number since 2005. This label means that the lighting has been approved within the EU, where the number indicates which country the article has been approved in. However, it does not say anything about what the lamp is approved for. The ECE mark does, however.

What does ECE marking mean?

The ECE marking indicates what the lamp is approved for. For example, the ECE R23 marking indicates that the lamp is an approved reverse light. The ECE regulation is a system that ensures that lighting rules are the same throughout the EU. Here are some of the most common ECE markings:
ECE R6 – Blinkers, front, back, and on the sides ECE R7 – Position lights, tail lights, brake lights ECE R23 – Reverse light
ECE R65 – Warning lights
ECE R77 – Front and rear parking lights
ECE R87 – Signal lights
ECE R91 – Side marker lights
ECE R112 – Auxiliary lights

 What does RoHS mean?

A RoHS marking guarantees that the use of hazardous substances, such as heavy metals and flame retardants in the lamp, does not exceed a certain amount.

 What does it mean for a product to be Class 2 marked?

Class 2 is a feature on the rise, which means that there is both day and night mode on the lighting. This means that the brightness can be reduced in darkness to not disturb the surroundings.

What does an ADR marking mean?

ADR is a regulation for the transport of dangerous goods by road that applies to countries in Europe. Dangerous goods are considered to be substances and objects that pose a risk to people, animals, and/or the surrounding environment when improperly handled during transport. An ADR marking on the lighting means that it may be mounted on vehicles transporting dangerous goods.

What does IP rating mean?

IP rating is an international marking that indicates how resistant the product is to ingress of particles such as dust and water. The first digit denotes particle protection (dust) and the second denotes water protection.
IP5x – Dust protected
IP6x – Dust tight
IPx5 – Jet proof
IPx6 – Powerful jet proof
IPx7 – Water resistant, submerged in 1 m deep water for 30 min
IPx8 – Pressure water proof, submerged in water up to 3 m
IPx9K – Protected against high-pressure washing at 80°
