Fans of refitting four-wheel drive vehicles always like to install beautiful additional lights one after another. Some people may ask, is it too exaggerated? No practical effect?
We do not rule out that some of them are just for decoration, in fact, there is nothing wrong with this. However, it is actually necessary to install driving lights on off-road vehicles.
And off-road lighting is still a very important subject!
The lighting equipment used for real off-road is very important. It originated in some intercontinental endurance racing cars.
Because this type of race requires continuous driving around the clock, and need to traverse dark roads, deserts, jungles and mountainside cliffs, etc.
Therefore, night lighting is a necessary safety measure for drivers at night.
As an off-road 4WD vehicle owner, what type of driving lights are used? It is necessary to understand the following 4 types of driving lights:
This is one of our most commonly used driving lights. In case of driving in heavy fog, the fog itself has astigmatism effect. When ordinary car lights are exposed to fog, the light will be scattered and form a white barrier. Under circumstances, oncoming vehicles are not easy to detect your presence, causing a certain degree of danger. However, the yellow light of the fog lamp is more easily absorbed by the fog than the white light, so that the driver has a better sense of distance and can provide a clearer driving vision.
Spotlight is a kind of light with condensing effect, which can make the light converge in a small area, and its light range is the farthest, even when driving at high speed on the highway, it is easy for other road users aware. When driving in the jungle, the off-road vehicle can also use spotlights to illuminate distant objects, and it can also be used for road detection, search and rescue in the dark environment.
Special driving lights
LED Driving Light
LED Driving light can perform its most functions in a completely dark environment. When the general high or low light cannot provide comprehensive lighting, it can achieve a relatively broad and comprehensive irradiation surface. The irradiation surface of this group of lights alone covers the range of high light and low light.
Turn assist light
The steering assist lights are to be used in conjunction with the original vehicle lights. When the driver needs a wide-angle view space, this group of assist lights needs to be turned on. Because of its refraction surface structure, it has a better and broad surface. As for it, it is called a turn, because it is usually used in some winding mountain roads, hence the name.
The above four types of driving lights have specific usage restrictions. Don't mistakenly think that using the four types of lights at the same time can achieve the best lighting effect in any environment. This is because these devices are not required for driving on most roads, and when some additional lights are used together, their original functions will be offset by each other. For example, in heavy fog, you can only rely on fog lights to guide you forward. If you turn on the LED driving lights or spotlights at this time, then the function of the fog lights will be wasted.
