Lucas HID Gas Discharge Bulbs


HID systems provide 200% more light on the road than a standard Halogen bulb. Unlike a standard bulb a HID system requires an electronic ballast to ignite the bulb creating a spark between two points.


HID headlamp burners produce between 2,800 and 3,500 lumens (the measure of light output), from between 35 and 85 watts at 12.8 volts compared to between 700 and 2,100 lumens using 40 to 72 watts on a standard halogen.


HID bulbs also have a average life of 2000 hours compared to the standard bulb which is between 450 and 1000 hours.


HID bulbs are designated a “S” burner or “R” burner, an “S” burner has a plain glass shield and are used in projector type optics where as “R” burners are designed for reflective type optics and have an opaque mask on certain parts of the shield to create the cut off boundary near the top of the low beam.


The Lucas bulb range includes a comprehensive collection of HID bulbs including D1R, D1S, D2R, D2S, D3R, D3S, D4R and D4S. The full range and application data can be viewed in our online catalogue by clicking the link below or download our PDF catalogue and application guide opposite.
