Derand Motorsports in Ottawa / Gatineau is your headquarters for HID Xenon headlight conversion systems. These high intensity discharge or Xenon lamp conversion kits are 3 times brighter than the factory halogen headlamp system on your vehicle. Also lowers the power consumption (35 watts and now 50 watts) and outlasts 3 to 5 times the life of a halogen bulb. Shades vary from 5000K to 12000K (see image above), low beam to dual high & low beam available. 8000K or higher are special orders and for off-road use only (not street legal). Derand Motorsports sells, services and installs all brands of HID Xenon conversions.
We sell the very best quality HID & LED parts available on the market. For more information, please visit www.lumenshid.com.
We will try to meet or beat any advertised prices.
Definition of HID Xenon conversion kit
High intensity Discharge lighting is light from a plasma discharge rather than a filament. The system involves a ballast to start the light and certain gasses to create the light. Overall the system uses less energy than halogen lighting, while producing 3 times more light.
How HID lights work
High Intensity Discharge Lights do not have a filament. Instead light is created from an electrical discharge between two electrodes in a micro-environment of xenon gas and metal halide salts. The light is emitted by an electrically energized gas -- a plasma discharge -- formed and sustained between the two electrodes.
The distinctive blue / white light of HID lamps stimulates the reflective paints in road markers and signs creating a safer driving environment. Additionally, the increased light output is designed to illuminate a wider area in front of the vehicle, improving visibility and safety, without disturbing the vision of oncoming drivers.
XENARC© HID lamps have over three times the lumens per watt of traditional halogen light sources and are more efficient at converting electrical energy into light. They produce at least 70% more light than traditional lamps, and use less power while producing less heat. This gives designers new freedom to explore the frontiers of front end design. By creating more compact headlights to fit smaller spaces, better aerodynamics are possible.
