The Importance of Beam Patterns
What Is SAE J583 and Why Does It Matter for LED Fog Light Bars?
SAE J583 is the official standard designation of the fog beam pattern by SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers), it specifies a super-wide beam beneath a flat horizontal cut-off allowing no light above it. This is extremely important in a fog application for various reasons. The first reason is that the purpose of the LED fog light bar is to put the light beam low and wide so that the driver can clearly see both sides of the road at low speed, while using the extremely bright LED light without causing the beam to break the horizon and reflect the light at the upcoming driver during extreme weather, like rain, fog, snow and dust, which significantly reduces the visibility. So that’s what the fog lights are mainly designed for. The clean cut-off beam also makes sure that this beam to be run in oncoming traffic without blinding oncoming drivers, unlike any other beam patterns like spot, flood, etc. If one beam pattern does not have cut-offs to run in oncoming traffic, then it should be considered for high beam use or off-road use only.
Don’t let the thick fog or heavy rain prevent you from driving forward with confidence. SAE J583 certified and DOT approved, these 46 series street legal 6 inches and 10 inches fog light bars can shine through extreme heavy fog with their finest narrow fog beam so that you can clearly see the entire roadway. Safety driving in extremely bad weather is our goal, an advanced fog light bar with DOT/SAE compliant makes it easy to cut through bad weather conditions. 46 series LED fog light bars provide a low, wide-angle beam pattern that increases close-range visibility. The ideal beam pattern for lighting up pathways close to the ground in low visibility conditions. Refit your vehicle with the new OGA 46 series SAE street legal lights and enjoy outstanding auxiliary fog beam lighting performance.
