  • LED Headlight Module

    Hey all, just finished designing our LED headlight module for LED matrix of 800-2500 LM. Just wanted to share the progress
    Lens is 40mm, fan base is 50x50mm, this is small enough to fit in may places yet provide as much light as HID kits

    Tell me what you think?

      Would the light temperature and power input requirement be equivalent to an HID kit? Also, do you imagine it competing at a similar or lesser cost than the average competing HID kit?

        i have hand made prototype installed in my car but due to heat-sink being generic i was only able to go up to 800LM which is ok for NYC but kinda dark for not lighted roads. I am currently machining parts for this design so if all goes well i will have production parts ready next week and i will do some testings on the road with various LED matrices. My main interest is 2000LM for this design and 5000LM for next bigger version ( considering that average HID is 1500LM,l my design should look nice

          Light temperature on matrix we have is cool white which is the same as most factory HIDs (we don't have blue versions that are very common to aftermarket HID kits) as to price this is some what tricky. So far production will be really manual small quantity batches for people i know so price will be high. Id say very high, but yet cheaper then stock HID kits (ex Mercedes stock HID lamps are 800 each)

          As to power output as i mentioned in other post average HID is 1500 LM, our small 40mm lens kit can handle up to 2000LM which is more then HID and it eats twice less power, so in my case i will use that as fog light when i need extra coverage on dark roads. And for extremes 60-90mm kit can handle up to 12,000 LM which is aircraft projector and HID would look like candle light next to it. I think 5000 LM is max what you might ever need on the road

            looks like your putting the led vertical to face the lens, why not place the led horizontal to better control the distribution of light? also, what led's are you looking at that only come in cool white?

              what do u mean vertical horizontal? our matrix is square no meter how u put is its still square
              we are using bridge lux matrix, they come in cool or warm white

              Also progress update, i cut heat sing out on our CNC, progress was not good as router did not hold height well so i will need to do another run tomorrow

                i mean the orientation when looking at it from the side-- this is how the OEM's do it:

                i fear that by just placing a COB array behind a projection lens, you will be creating a high beam light-- which is not very usable for most cases. the only way for it to work for low beam use is to block off portions of the COB array, which would of course drastically affect its lumen output.

                  that's a cut off filter, we can position it any way you want, in our design it is right between reflector and lens so minimal radiation is lost. At the end of the day assembly can be used as both high beam and low beam. Also im waiting for laser cutter to arrive, when i have it i would be able to shape the lens surface so we can have less light for high beam, so it would be like high beam that does not blind incoming drivers that much.

                    That design looks awesome man good job. Any chance we can get an approx when we can see the final touches?

                      Final product delivery depends on community interest in it
                      I just happened to be out of budget so to do the project I need to release few of our commercial jobs to raise some money for toys like this. Otherwise the designs are ready to be send to production houses. I might to do some more improvements in the meanwhile

                        So this is more aimed at the upper end car market? I know a HID conversion kit for my car (Mazda protege) is only $200, I assume you're not aiming to compete with that?

                          yes this will be an expansive installation. Goal is not just hit "upper" market but rather deliver modular innocation so we can do something differently from what ever come as stock option.

                          My end goal is to build complex motorized system where I can Pan, Tilt, Zoom lesnses so we can adjust settings to different road condition. Also maybe add RGB leds so we can select color that is best for curent situation ex Blue during sun light and Cool White at night etc . but all that is on ToDo list
