The dipped beam distribution of bi-xenon headlamps shows a flatter increase (12°) in the asymmetrical light component. The increase is between 12° and 75° for an increasing number of headlamps. The structure of the asymmetrical light component shows a "kink", which, however, does not mean that the headlamp is defective. As a result of the high light intensity, this structural shape is necessary in order to ensure that the requirements for specific lux values in light distribution are not exceeded and are in accordance with the relevant ECE regulations. Because of the xenon system and its associated higher kelvin value, the light colour is whitish blue.
In the light distribution graph shown, the symmetrical light component runs just below the dotted "cut-off line" to the left of the vertical "zero line" (oncoming traffic). This means that oncoming drivers will not be dazzled. The asymmetrical light distribution increases the visibility of the driver's own lane and of its edge.
