XENARC lamps are in the family of discharge lamps and as a defining characteristic emit their light through an electrical discharge in the shape of an arc. Conventional halogen lamps, in contrast, shed light from a wire filament. The XENARC technology consists of a light arc between two electrodes in a micro-environment of xenon gas and metal halide salts hermetically sealed in a tiny quartz capsule. For the XENARC system, an electronic ballast and harness is required to start and maintain the electrical discharge. XENARC lamps, the electronic control gear OSRAM XENAELECTRON, and the appropriate harness create the perfect combination for a complete system solution. XENARC lamps are approved for use in special xenon headlights only. In Europe, such headlights must be fitted with automatic levelling and cleaning systems. The brighter output means that the road is lit much better. Therefore drivers stay focused and can react more quickly to any obstacles, signs, or dangers. The light defraction is reduced to a minimum, so the oncoming traffic is not dazzled. Because of their high voltage, XENARC D1 lamps and XENAELECTRON control gears should only be replaced by properly trained personnel. The Xenarc bulbs change color with usage and time, so when replacing the HID bulb, both bulbs should be replaced at the same time or you may have one bulb that will appear yellow and the other 'blue'.

Product Features: 100% more light than halogen lamps and 300% greater luminous efficacy At 4,100Â° Kelvin Xenon lights have a color temperature closer to natural daylight than conventional halogen light (3,200Â° K) and are therefore easier on the eyes. HID lighting is light from a plasma discharge rather than a filament HID uses less energy than halogen lighting, while producing 3 times more light Light lasts up to 3 times longer than conventional halogen technology HID lamps produce 70% more light on the road than traditional lamps and uses less power while producing less heat.
