FYRLYT is unique. It may surprise you!

FYRLYT co-designer, Paul Alisauskas explains why in 2023, FYRLYT still chooses halogen as its light source of choice. Watch and listen to this video and you will know more than many self proclaimed 'experts'. There is more to consider than just BRIGHTNESS, LUMENS and LUX. See what our customers discovered switching from LED and HID. FYRLYT is the world leader in this innovation.

4 reasons why

4 reasons 'WHY' FYRLYT is superior.

#01 - Spectral wavelength.

FYRLYT stands alone in explaining its design with relevant verifiable science specific to the purpose of driving lights and spotlights. You must look past pseudo science and factoid hyped marketing regardless of brand or price. The spectral output of the light source dictates what you will see regardless of apparent brightness.

C.R.I.
COLOUR
RENDERING
INDEX

Why is optimal colour rendering (CRI) important in driving lights & searchlights?  
 

We only see colours that are reflected to our eyes, if a light source is deficient in a colour we don’t see the colours true to life. We rely heavily on colours to detect and differentiate risks at distance.

 

Size, shape and silhouette of an object is defined by its subtle differences in colour. Vital detail is often missing from LED & HID driving light sources. Typical LEDs used in driving lights are 70 CRI. FYRLYT is 100 CRI, *42% more. *(100 - 70) / 70 * 100 = 42.86%

FYRLYT compares its CRI to typical LEDs. This is vital to what you actually see.

#02
ACUITY
DETAIL
SHARPNESS

TRUE OR FALSE? 5000K to 6000K driving lights are nearest to daylight and therefore best for seeing at night. ANSWER? FALSE.

FACT: The claim is incorrect. Lights biased towards the longer wave lengths, 3000 Kelvin have less glare and better visual acuity. Blue biased lights (typically 4000K+ have higher discomfort glare and result in poorer visual acuity.) This is regardless of brand, salespeople or price.

 

FYRLYT delivers the best solution enhancing your night driving safety beyond marketing hype.
 

FYRLYT has most of its light output biased in the longer wavelengths in comparison to HID or LED's, blue bias. Blue light waves are the amongst the shortest, highest energy wavelengths in the visible light spectrum. Because they are shorter, these "Blue" or High Energy Visible (HEV) wavelengths flicker more easily than longer wavelengths. This flickering creates glare that reduces visual contrast and affects sharpness and clarity.

 

CONCLUSION: Short wavelength light “Blue biased light” is simply bad for Glare… “Long wavelength” (Red/Yellow biased) is superior. FYRLYT delivers more detail.

TYNDALL
EFFECT

LIGHT
SCATTERING

FYRLYT penetrates moisture, dust and smoke more effectively than LED.

 

Blue and blue biased light is scattered more strongly than red light by the Tyndall effect. Why is a light source that penetrates air born particulate matter important?
 

We rarely drive in in clean (laboratory) air conditions. Short wavelength biased driving lights and spotlights can be rendered ineffective and worse, exacerbate excessive glare with modest amounts of dust, moisture or smoke. You see less. It will induce eyestrain. Your safety and other road users safety is therefore potentially compromised.

 

FYRLYT driving lights and spotlights are long wavelength biased and will penetrate airborne particulate matter such as dust, moisture or smoke far better than a blue biased light like a LED or HID.

DARK
ADAPTATION

YOUR SAFETY

Halogens long wave length is superior to typical LED.

 

What happens when you dip your driving lights? Did you know that your eyes take longer to recover with short wavelength biased light like typical LED or HID? It is these milliseconds that are vital to your response time to potential hazards and oncoming traffic. Halogen is LONG WAVELENGTH with biased red/yellow. By comparison typical driving light LEDs and HIDs are SHORT WAVELENGTH biased blue green. 

 

Reference: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adaptation_(eye)#Dark_adaptation

 

"Wavelength of the threshold light: Varying the wavelengths of stimuli also affect the dark adaptation curve. Long wavelengths—such as extreme red—create the absence of a distinct rod/cone break, as the rod and cone cells have similar sensitivities to light of long wavelengths. Conversely, at short wavelengths the rod/cone break is more prominent, because the rod cells are much more sensitive than cones once the rods have dark adapted."
