“There is a huge amount of choice when it comes to lighting solutions in Australia and the Sniper lightbars offer value for money coupled with performance. From light output to build quality, these light bars exceed all expectations.
Sniper Australia have chosen OSRAM’s high-flux LED’s to make this bar stand out.” -Sniper Australia
- high light output even at high currents,
- uniform distribution of light,
- excellent thermal stability
- particularly good contrast for seeing and being seen.
Light sources for front lighting have to be multi-talented. Not only do they have to illuminate the road ahead reliably at night, in rain and fog, they also have to perform various functions providing spread, spot and mid range light. All this while at the same time, they have to withstand high temperatures.
The new Sniper LED bar contains a UX:3 chip that delivers high light output at high currents. The Oslon LED by Osram can achieve optimum lumen output – despite an application temperature of 100°C in the chip. Thermal management is much simpler with this new LED. This is thanks to the greater thermal stability of the luminous flux even under “hot” application conditions and also to a new temperature-optimized packaging process. This LED is thermal matched to the expansion of the metal core board. All these properties makes the Sniper light bar particularly stable and extremely durable (more than 100,000 hours at 700 mA and a chip temperature of 60°C).
High quality of light for better visibility
The Oslon LED was developed in Regensburg and has been designed to function without a coating lens, its light LED can therefore be set very close to focal lense. Its luminance (what the human eye perceives as the brightness) is 2 to 5 times higher than comparable LEDs in its class.
“This is particularly important in automotive forward lighting solutions, the greater the luminance of the LED, the smaller the external lens and the smaller the space needed. Therefore the Sniper LED light bar can be made much more compact, giving designers much more freedom.” – Sniper Australia
“A common complaint we hear in regards to LED light bars is fogging. Nature abhors a vacumn, When the LED is performing at a peak level the internal temperature of the LED light bar creates pressure, As the Light bar cools a vacumn is formed.” – Sniper Australia
