The purpose of license plate lights is also to ensure the license plate remains legible when visibility is poor, at night for example, and they are a statutory requirement.
As well as being easily visible, it is important that the license plate light does not disturb the road users behind, i.e. it must be glare-free.
HELLA license plate lights satisfy all statutory requirements and ensure optimum visibility.
Product example: LED license plate light
The extremely flat LED license plate light by HELLA has a powerful luminous efficiency thanks to 4 power LEDs and precision optics, yet also has an extremely low energy consumption. The license plate light is available as a recess-mounted variant which is installed above the license plate lamp or as a surface-mounted variant which is installed at the side of the plate. With the surface-mounted variant, only one light per license plate is required thanks to the optimum luminous efficiency; two lamps are required with the recess-mounted variant. The surface-mounted variant is especially well suited to trailer applications.
The IP 6K9K protection class ensures the light is highly dustproof and waterproof. The tried-and-tested HELLA license plate light with bulb can be easily replaced by the LED recess-mounted variant, which means that an energy-efficient upgrade can be quickly carried out.
