Lucas Intelligent Decoder


Adaptor for many German vehicles, PWM headlight circuits, and some Toyota high beam applications. 9-16V. Some specific applications will also require a resistor.


What is the functions of decoder?

Our Lucas Lighting decoder contain the functions below:

1. Fit to Germany cars which need electronic decoding.

There is a CANBus electronic inspect for the light while you turn on the engine of Germany cars, so it needs electronic decoding. And our decoder can offer this electronic decoding function. For some Germany cars, the system will also check the working power of  the headlights bulbs after you turn it on. In this situation, you still need to add a resistor on the headlight bulbs to satisfy the demand of power.

2. Fit to pulse power supplied cars.

Pulse power supplied capacitance is a technology to reduce the heat value of halogen bulbs, make the lifespan be longer, and save more power on working. But led headlights need constant current supplied, not pulse power supplied this kind of intermittent power supply. So while you install the led headlights into the car with pulse power supplied device, the led headlight bulbs will keep flashing or flash and then lights off.  In this situation, decoder will be a large capacitance and store up the electric on it and keep supply to the led headlights bulb current constantly. ( If meet pulse power supplied problem, you can ask 4S store revise your car into constant current supply too.)

3. A small electronic component for Toyota cars.

There is a high beam signal light on Toyota cars, which will be turned on by a electronic component of in our decoder.

After a lot of testing and summarize the feedback from our customers, our Lucas Lighting decoder already can fit to most of cars on the market, including BMW, VW, Dodge cars and so on. Besides, our decoders are different to the others on the market, under long time working in car, ours can keep a reasonable working temperature and not easy to burn out.
