The world latest D-optic LED headlamp will be available on the 2018 Chevrolet Traverse

27-06-2017
To improve better visibility before drivers and provide customized LED lights options for automobile makers, Magna introduces D-Optic™ LED headlamps. D-Optic LED head lights represents the next generation of LED headlamps and an auto-industry first by combining multiple high-power LEDs with precise, injection-molded lenses to achieve high performance along with efficient energy use.

The newest D-optic LED lights will be installed first on the 2018 Chevrolet Traverse.

 D-Optic lighting is unique for automotive applications because it is scalable custom-developed for the specific shape and styling of a car. LEDs and lenses can be added or subtracted to suit each unique design. The innovative LED headlamps make their first market introduction on the 2018 Chevrolet Traverse.
 
D-Optic lenses come in four unique prescriptions, each one dedicated to specific performance characteristics. This allows automakers to tailor total lamp performance for their own preference, whether it is near-field spread or comfort light or maximum range. Magna is able to combine D-Optics to achieve all performance goals.
 
A conventional LED headlamp optical system is a collection of multiple parts which require precision geometry and location, while the D-Optic lens consists of a single component. The high-temperature acrylic used in the D-Optic lens allows Magna to mold with the clarity required for a high-efficiency optical headlamp.
 
This precision lens is then closely coupled with a 1x1 LED at a distance of only 300 microns, about the size of the eye of a needle. This close pairing of lens with light source, combined with multiple LEDs formed into a specific light pattern, results in the best balance of performance with efficiency. Additionally, the 1x1 LEDs offer an advantage over other lamps in the market as they do not require active cooling.
 
D-Optic lighting provides energy efficiency benefits as well. LED lights are more efficient than other light sources, and they last longer. In general, the LED lights in D-Optic provide approximately 60 percent energy-consumption improvement compared to halogen and a 40 percent improvement compared to high-intensity discharge (HID) lights.
