Gas-discharge lamps of a passing light (the xenon lamps)

In comparison with галогенными lamps of the basic complete set of a headlight with gas-discharge lamps (the xenon lamps) have brighter passing light similar to a daylight. The total power gas-discharge lamps reach through 3 with the ambassador of inclusion. At gas-discharge lamps the flask is filled by the xenon gas, and light is created as a result of fire of an arch owing to the pressure application between two electrodes. Electronic monitors and a source creating quickly pressure 28.000 In for ignition of a light arch are necessary for work of a gas-discharge lamp. Capacity of 35 Vt suffices for creation of double force of light of a usual lamp by capacity of 55 Vt for a gas-discharge lamp.

Gas-discharge lamps have the big service life. Their replacement if it in general is required, is carried out in some years of operation.

At replacement of gas-discharge lamps (the xenon lamps, the additional equipment) there is a danger to a life owing to not qualified reference with an element of a high voltage of a lamp. Therefore lamp replacement here is not described.

The system of headlights with the xenon light is equipped with dynamic adjustment of range of light which automatically reacts to change of loading of the car.

Dynamic adjustment of range of light of headlights with gas-discharge lamps

For an exception of blinding action on counter transport of a headlight are equipped with dynamic adjustment of range of light which automatically establishes range of light of headlights depending on various loading of the car.

Gauges on forward and back suspension brackets register each change of level of the car. The electronic monitor processes signals of gauges and through electric motors in appropriate way regulates position of reflectors of headlights.

Manual adjustment of range of light is not provided. In the presence of malfunction in system of electric adjustment of a headlight are automatically established in the lowermost position.

For adjustment and reading of indications of memory of malfunctions of headlights from gas-discharge lamps special diagnostic device BMW is required. Address to Section Diagnostics of malfunctions. These works can be carried out only on HUNDRED.
