A high beam LED headlight from BMACThe company has released a new ‘front of bus pack,’ with the unique BMAC Opti-Lux LED headlight configuration. BMAC said it creates a precise beam pattern with exact cut off and optimum road illumination. With a typical life of up to 10 years (based on an average use of eight hours per day) the unit incorporates a monitor signal to the vehicle dashboard that meets with European whole vehicle type approved vehicles.
Included within the front of bus pack, the new triple function front light provides Daytime Running Light (DRL), position light and indicator functionality with a variable form factor of either 85mm or 95mm light. It, like the Opti-Lux LED headlights, is suitable for both new build and aftermarket applications.

BMAC’s new innovation provides additional functionality. In particular, the new dipped beam lamp incorporates a DRL which provides the builder and operator with additional design flexibility and the opportunity for cost savings. All of BMAC’s lighting comes with a five year full warranty and is suited to fit into standard vehicle apertures.

The launch of the front of bus pack follows the recent launch of BMAC’s successful rear bus light 54XX series, all of which boast ‘light guide technology’. BMAC describes light guide technology as the second generation in LED lighting: using continuously illuminated LED pipes, this emerging technology allows more innovative lighting solutions and design flexibility compared to traditional LED.

Mark Rutherford, Managing Director at BMAC, added: “The option to purchase a complete full LED front end pack that incorporates low and high beams with a triple function front light is extremely attractive from a cost and engineering point of view.

“The lower power consumption (1/3 of that of a halogen equivalent) coupled with the crisp and clear output results in more visible light and better illumination of road signs which is really appealing to our customers.”
