Halogen Fog lamps
Fog lamps are most of the time integrated in vehicles’ bumpers. They produce a wide beam that has a short range around 25 meters to avoid any dazzling risk due to diffraction phenomenon caused by drops in suspension. As an O.E. supplier, Valeo has paid great attention to details providing innovative solutions like patented ventilation systems to limit condensation, especially under serious weather conditions, high resistance lenses and design flexibility.
Valeo has also developed combined solutions by including an additional reflecting surface around the fog lamp bezel that provides a cornering system or Fixed Bending Light (FBL) system: fog lamps are turned on while the driver turns the steering wheel to in curves.
L.E.D. Fog lamps
Being more powerful and less energy-consuming than halogen bulbs, L.E.D. chips can be used in fog lamps to help reducing CO2 emissions while offering a brighter light. Thanks to its compactness, this technology is also useful for design innovation.
