What Lights up the Night
Dark country roads pose a significant security risk: three times more car accidents happen at night than during the day. Automobile manufacturers put unbelievable amounts of potential in the development of modern light systems. But test and safety technology must be able to inspect these highly developed headlights quickly and precisely and to adjust them easily: LITE 3, the MAHA headlight tester is the innovative reaction to this demand.
High intensity xenon lamps used in most cars except compact class cars, LED taillights as a design element, convincing in durability and rapid response, LED light as daytime driving lights – with the latest being a low-beam light using LED technology – the trend is towards smaller, nobler and clever simplicity. But it not just about design, intensity and variable road illumination. The total cost development must always be kept in mind.
Still LED technology has not taken hold everywhere, most manufacturers, at least for the time being, bet on xenon lights. But xenon light is not all the same, with many manufacturers using a combination of high intensity gas discharge and curves – as well as cornering light. And in the coming years, according to experts, halogen lights will only play a role in the lower class of vehicles.
MAHA has developed the ideal solution:
Using the LITE 3 headlight tester an exact and fast headlight inspection of the new lighting systems is possible.
By directly pressing individual keys all the various lights can be tested, i.e. high beams, fog lights, daytime lights and adaptive front headlight systems.
The headlight tester independently determines a test result and passes it on to the LCD graphic display for evaulation. The display shows information about light position, yaw angle, intensity, hotspot etc. In addition the headlight image is shown graphically. The data can be transferred to a PC with the optionally available modules “PC cable connection“ and ”PC Bluetooth connection“.
Ergonomic handling and a durable and maintenance-free design facilitate easy operation. An “Acoustic setting mode“ allows for quick and convenient headlight adjustment – without visual contact with the headlight tester.
LITE 3 is ideal for daily use using simple and clear user guidance (graphic menu on a multi-functional LCD display). The latest electronic and camera technology (individually used “high dynamic range CMOS camera“) digitalizes the headlight image and passes it on for processing to the internal control electronics. Using a single-chip-processor with flash memory adaptions to future statutory changes can be done at any time.
LITE 3 corresponds with state-of-the-art technology. Precise inspection of even the latest headlight technology has become reality. LITE 3 – an almost inconspicuous element of the testing and safety technnology sector. Yet its development is revolutionary – and its use of enormous importance. Because it helps in preventing accidents thereby saving lives.
