LED fog light innovation extends driver's field of vision

September 14, 2015 // By Paul Buckley
Osram is for the first time offering a fog light with colored ornaments. The LEDriving FOG PL device is available in five different colors.

Like the company's LEDriving FOG and LEDriving F1 devices, the FOG PL is certified to ECE regulations (Economic Commission for Europe).

All LEDriving fog light models produce a white fog light with a color temperature of up to 6000 kelvin and cast a homogenous light on the road thanks to their specially designed reflection/projection unit. The wide emission angle ensures a large field of vision so that drivers can identify hazards earlier and better.

The LEDriving fog lights can be used as replacements for a large number of conventional round halogen fog lights with a diameter of 90 millimeter. Drivers can easily upgrade to more powerful LED technology. For Volkswagen, Nissan, Infiniti and Toyota cars there are additional attachments available for all fog light models. The lights are compatible with hybrid cars and vehicles with automatic start-stop systems.

With LEDriving FOG PL, Osram is for the first time offering a combined daytime running light and fog light with colored ornaments which will enhance the styling of the car even when the lights are not in use. There is a choice of five colors for creating an individual look: silver, gold, blue, pink or orange – either to match the car finish or provide a neat contrast. The use of color emphasizes the round design of the front lighting in the form of an eagle's eye, giving the car an unmistakable appearance. LEDriving FOG PL is suitable for 12 V systems. They are easy to install because there is no control box to connect. The LEDriving FOG PL with its low energy consumption compared to conventional fog lights is also a winner from the economic point of view. The device is available in the specified colors in retail outlets for a recommended retail price of 249.99 euros.

The LEDriving FOG family also combines daytime running light and fog light in a single unit. Like the FOG PL and F1, it is equipped with high-quality, high-performance LED technology that provides homogenous distribution of light with no visible LED points. LEDriving FOG is suitable for 12 V or 24 V systems. This fog light with impact-resistant lens has the same diameter and shape as the LEDriving FOG PL. The RRP of the LEDriving FOG is 329 euros.
