NIGHT BREAKER LED

Bringing light to life

A shining revolution in technology and design: OSRAM’s first LED low beam lamp1 approved for road use is an innovation leader. With the first H7-LED to have been approved as a legal retrofit low beam lamp for installation in halogen-based headlights in line with the Road Traffic Licensing Regulations (StVZO). OSRAM, the No. 1 in automotive lighting, developed the NIGHT BREAKER LED from scratch and put it through its paces in collaboration with TÜV-Süd. Approved by the Federal Motor Transport Authority (KBA) for a wide range of headlights and vehicle types, with the NIGHT BREAKER LED, you too can now experience the superior performance of state-of-the-art lighting technology in your car. For a brand-new driving experience day and night.

Please check here to see whether NIGHT BREAKER LED lamps are approved for your country and vehicle and if the LEDriving ADAPTER and/or two LEDriving SMART CANBUS units will also be needed for installation. Familiarise yourself with the user manual before installation: Download (PDF)

You can easily install the lamps yourself in most cars with only a little expertise. Our videos show you how to go about installation step by step.

Your local workshop will offer a comprehensive care-free package, installing the lamps for you professionally.

To be sure that you have bought an original OSRAM LED product, OSRAM offers its customers the so-called Trust Program. This makes it possible to identify counterfeits. Further details can be found here: The OSRAM Trust Program

The design of the OSRAM NIGHT BREAKER LED is characterised by its uniqueness in the combination of two functions - "heat dissipation" and "optimum reflector design" . The optics are rounded off by a compact lamp size for optimum fitting accuracy in the headlamp.

Furthermore, the lamps are vibration-resistant to impacts, for example due to uneven road surfaces.

Quality and performance make every OSRAM product an OSRAM original. Unfortunately, product piracy has reached a point where it is difficult to visually distinguish between original and counterfeit.

OSRAM has therefore integrated security features into the production process that allow you to authenticate your lamps online in two simple steps.

No, OSRAM does not offer an additional warranty for the NIGHT BREAKER LED. The statutory warranty applies.

Approval for the legal NIGHT BREAKER LED is a very complex process for each vehicle model. Therefore, no statement on a concrete time estimate is possible at the present time, we hope for your understanding. OSRAM is continuously working on further development.

Approval for the legal NIGHT BREAKER LED is a very complex process for each vehicle model. Therefore, no statement on a concrete time estimate is possible at this point in time, we hope for your understanding. OSRAM is continuously working on further developments. You can always find the current country and vehicle list here.

Approval in other European countries depends on the respective legal situation of the country and to what extent they accept the approval. OSRAM cannot make any generally valid statement in this regard.

The sticker supplied in the packaging should be affixed in the engine compartment or on the back of the headlamp.

For vehicles declared as officially approved by OSRAM, the complete light distribution has been verified according to ECE R112. For vehicles that are not declared as approved by OSRAM, installation and use in road traffic will result in the invalidation of the operating permit and the loss of insurance cover.

No, the laws of the country in which the vehicle is registered also apply abroad. This means that a vehicle cannot be objected to in a country where it is not registered. Countries with left-hand traffic (e.g. Great Britain) are an exception. Here, the driver must switch back to halogen lamps, even if the vehicle is registered in the home country.

OSRAM does not assume that there will be any queries from testing organisations or the police. If this should be the case, the OSRAM customer service offers support.

Yes, we as manufacturer recommend that the headlights get adjusted in a workshop after the lamps have been installed.

The lamps can be installed in vehicles officially designated by OSRAM and tested accordingly. Installation accessories may be required.

Adapter:
In certain vehicles, the two electrical base contacts of the lamp are used for mechanical contacting on the halogen adapter. With the H7 LED, the two electrical contacts are not positioned in the same place as with the halogen lamp. Therefore, a specific H7 LED adapter is necessary.

Canbus resistor:
The H7 LED is much more efficient than the H7 halogen lamp. This can lead to a false error message on vehicles. To avoid this false error message, an additional load resistor must be installed. This increases the total power to a level that is above the error detection and the false error message is avoided.

OSRAM offers its customers a vehicle list per country with a detailed overview of the respective vehicle models, the tested headlamps and the installation accessories required for them.

The Canbus variants cover different vehicle types.

Installation with an adapter requires an extra installation step. The explanation can be found in the operating instructions.

The installation accessories offered by OSRAM have been tested in combination with LED lamps and headlamps by official testing authorities and are to be used exclusively to obtain road approval.

OSRAM has carried out and passed the necessary electromagnetic compatibility tests.

No, the LEDriving SMART CANBUS developed by OSRAM also has electronics built in.

Please take a look at the installation instructions. It is important to attach it to a metallic surface because of the heat generated.

De-icing behaviour and defrosting may change due to the switch from halogen to LED.

LED lamps offer more brightness, a longer service life and a higher colour temperature than halogen lamps. The light of the new NIGHT BREAKER LED is up to 220 percent brighter than the legal minimum requirements for halogen lamps and comparable in colour to daylight. The lamp thus creates strong contrasts and a wide range. This improves the driver's vision and the visibility of the car in road traffic.

Thanks to LED technology, it shines up to five times longer than a comparable halogen variant, needs to be replaced correspondingly less often and also consumes less energy.

The control unit prevents the error messages on the on-board computer that can occur due to a lower wattage of the LED lamps.

Yes, there is no malfunction and the OSRAM LED replacement lamps meet all relevant standards.

For the vehicles that are officially approved by OSRAM, the complete light distribution has been verified in accordance with ECE R112. This includes no glaring of oncoming traffic.

Usage notice:
The defrosting behavior and defrosting of the headlight can change due to the switch from halogen lamps to LED lamps.

1 Only applies to the respective countries in which there is approval and the vehicle models and light functions currently listed in the compatibility list. Exact conditions here.
2 As compared to the minimum ECE R112 requirements. An additional 50% less glare.
