  • Patent number: 10760774
    Abstract: A compact safer tightly secured lighting system comprises an illumination element module, a terminal box, an illumination element module driver, and a junction box, wherein the illumination element module is composed of a heat sink and a lamp housing. An outer wall of a lower end of the heat sink has a circular recess provided for embedding a temperature controller. The lamp housing is composed of an external case, a reflective cup, a protection mask and a plurality of circlips having elasticity. A spacing is between the outer wall of the protection mask and the internal wall of the external case. The circlip is disposed to an outer wall of the protection mask, where one end is joined to a top end of the protection mask while another end has a tooth buckle corresponding to the internal wall of the external case. The tooth buckle stretches into the spacing to allow the circlip to locate between the external case and the protection mask so as to closely combine the protection mask and the external case.

  • Patent number: 10752162
    Abstract: A headlight system for a vehicle is enabled for a bending light function. A first light module generates a conventional asymmetrical dipped headlight with an upper first light/dark boundary on the driver's side of a central axis. A second light module has a matrix of light-emitting diode units. A control unit actuates light emissions of the individual light-emitting diode units separately. A bend-detection unit detects the radius of a curve in the direction of travel of the vehicle. The light-emitting diode units have at maximum two horizontal lines, and they generate an emission characteristic with a lower second light/dark boundary below the first light/dark boundary of the dipped headlight, an upper third light/dark boundary above the first light/dark boundary of the dipped headlight, and a lateral fourth light/dark boundary on the side of the light emissions of the second light module the faces the driver's side.

  • Patent number: 10750588
    Abstract: A light engine is disclosed in which the light engine contains a core comprising an opening extending completely through the core and independently addressable LED segments. The opening defines an inner surface of the core. Each segment has multiple LEDs. A PCB contains a body adjacent to one of an inner or outer surface of the core and to which the LED segments are attached and legs extending from the body and bent to be adjacent and traverse to the other of the inner or outer surface. Each leg is associated with a different LED segment. Control circuitry is connected with the legs of the flexible PCB and independently controls parameters of the LED segments to provide a preset illumination distribution and intensity based on user input.
