Hella Rallye 4000 LED Driving Lamp released

Hella Rallye 4000 LED

The Hella Rallye 4000 LED Driving Lamp has been released today replacing the Halogen Rallye FF 4000 driving light.

Hella Australia has announced the release of its latest-generation of driving lights, the Hella Rallye 4000 LED. It’s part of a family of driving lights and replaces the Halogen Rallye FF 4000 driving light. 

The new lights weigh 2.7 kilograms per light and are wrapped in a solid metal casing which is just about unique with plenty of makers switching to plastic. The headlights are water and dust proof carrying an IP67 and IP69K rating – click HERE to learn what those numbers mean.

Able to be used on their own or as a pair, they can run through either a 12-Volt or 24-Volt DC electrical supply, with reverse and over voltage protection a standard feature.

The Rallye 4000 LED comes with either a spread beam light distribution with a range of over 800 metres, or a pencil-beam pattern that extends range to 1.3 km. This compares well with the old Halogen Rallye FF 4000 light which offers  1-Lux at 700 metres for the pencil beam and 485 metres for the spread beam. The Rallye 4000 offers more than 90 lumens per watt of electrical output.

Already own an older Halogen Rallye 4000 unit? Hella is also offering the 4000 LED insert (pictured below) which allows you to swap the guts of the older light for the newer one. A replaceable pencil beam or spread beam insert can be swapped over in the original housing, taking only a few minutes, according to Hella.

Sharing the same generic appearance and casing size as the Rallye 4000 LED driving light, but also featuring an LED position light, is the HELLA Luminator 3.0 LED Driving Lamp (pictured below). This new model is optimised for urban environments where minimising glare to oncoming traffic and lower lighting outputs are required. The cost competitive Luminator LED pencil beam achieves 1-Lux at 600 metres, with its spread beam alternative achieving 1-Lux at 440 metres.

Both the HELLA Rallye 4000 LED and Luminator 3.0 Driving Lamps come with a 3-year warranty. Prices range from $294 and up for the Rallye 4000 LED driving light.
