After much demand, we now make a 175mm roof mount HID spotlight. It has a 175mm (7") diameter case with an all metal contstruction. It basically has the same reflector, case, bracket and quality bracket as the PL175WB halogen Spotlight however it has a High Intensity Discharge (HID) globe, with the ballast mounted on the back of the case. The standard globe used in this light has a 6000K colour temperature and is 12v 35w.
Like all Powa Beam Spotlights, the PL175WBHID is hand focused for maximum performance and every part is replaceable.
What are the Advantages of HID?
Durability: Improved durability as road vibrations can cause damage to coil lighting technologies.
Higher Colour Temp: More closely reflects that of natural daylight and improves both light intensity / reflection and light distribution, for earlier recognition of animals, people and objects.
Longer Service Life: A HID lamp will last, on the average, at least 5 times longer than a halogen bulb. In practical terms the life span of the bulb is equal to that of the car, so the bulb should only need replacing in exceptional circumstances.
Low Power Consumption: The standard 35w HID system produces on average 4.5 times the amount of light however it only uses approx. 3.0amps , compared to a standard 100w halogen which uses approx. 8amps.
