FAQ about LEDs

Why consider LEDs?

LED (Light Emitting Diode) Technology offers enormous benefits for off-road lighting applications. Because of their long life, durability (no filament to fail), and efficiency (lumens/watt), LED lights provide significant service cost and power consumption savings.

The colour spectrum of light emitted by LEDs is close to the colour spectrum of the mid-day sun. Generally, the human eye functions more effectively (better vision) when viewing objects illuminated by a light source whose colour spectrum is closest to the colour spectrum of the mid-day sun.

What is a lumen?

Luminous Flux is the total “effective” output of a light. Luminous Flux is expressed in Lumens. The larger the lumens, the greater the output of the light.

What is colour temperature?

Colour temperature is one characteristic of visible light measured by the Kelvin scale. Generally, the human eye functions more effectively when viewing objects illuminated by a light source whose colour temperature is closest to that of mid-day sun.

How do I calculate Watts, Volts and Amperage requirements?

Watts = Volts x Amps
Amps = Watts / Volts

Who makes Great Whites driving lights?

Great Whites Driving Lights are designed by OEX and engineered & manufactured by Vision X Lighting.
Vision X are a global leader in the lighting industry with a name recognised by 4x4 enthusiasts all over the world.
Born from technology found in OEX lights ensures that they will perform in the most rigorous of 4x4 and trucking conditions.

What are the advantages of LEDs?

  • Very low current draw
  • No warm up period required
  • Vibration resistant
  • The colour spectrum of LED is closer to that of sunlight which reduces eye strain
  • LEDs spread a crisp white light enabling excellent peripheral vision
  • 50,000+ hour life expectancy
  • No need to replace globes
