Title
(EN) LED HEADLIGHT
(FR) PHARE A DEL
Abstract
(EN)
A lamp (10) has a housing (12) with a base (14) with an internal circumferential wall (16) arranged about a longitudinal axis (18). A hollow body (20) projects from the housing (12) and is symmetrically arrayed about the longitudinal axis (18). A light guide (21) is positioned in the hollow body (20) and as a single output end (22) arrayed along the longitudinal axis (18) and has a plurality of radially extending arms (23), each of the arms having an input end (24). The light guide (21) is preferably constructed from a molded acrylic or a suitable glass having wave-guide characteristics.
