Holly Hill, Fla. – November 5, 2021 – Heise LED Lighting Systems® by Metra Electronics® is now shipping four new LED bulbs designed and optimized specifically for projector housings, but with the benefit of an instantaneous full lumen start-up, efficient LED output, and longer lifespan. The Heise HE-9005X fits 9005 housings, the HE-9006X fits 9006 housings, the HE-H7X fits H7 housings, and the HE-H11X fits H11 housings. These solutions are on display now at the 2021 SEMA Show with Metra Electronics.
The high-performance LED bulbs feature a built-in EMI filter to avoid any potential radio reception interference. A slimmer side cable connection and tool-less rotatable collar allow for an easier installation and fast beam pattern adjustment. To increase their lifespan, the bulbs are built with all-metal construction, utilize an intelligent temperature system with a copper vacuum liquid heat pipe, and have a dual ball bearing fan. One set of 80-watt bulbs features 10,000 lumens and the bulbs are optimized so that more of the LED’s raw output is converted into usable light that the driver can actually see.
“While the LED output is an important specification when it comes to comparing bulbs, there is more to the story when it comes to projector housing optics. Brighter isn’t always brighter. Most LED bulbs are double-sided to simulate the output of a traditional halogen bulb. However, when they are installed into a projector housing, much of the light produced by the bulb can be trapped inside by the baffle, reducing the actual visible light. This can be a big difference just by using the wrong bulbs. When you’re driving at night, dimmer lights can impact your ability to stop in time to avoid a collision,” says Jason Anderson, VP of Product Research and Development at Metra Electronics. “Projector headlights are a very sophisticated optical device. Just like a telescope, every component has to be aligned perfectly to make the magic happen. Heise has engineered this series to do just that,” adds Anderson.
Heise’s new LED projector bulbs are now shipping and on display at Metra’s main SEMA Show booth #12141 in the North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center. Additional information and specifications are available at HeiseLED.com.
