6.1.3.1.   Apart from (an) LED module(s), the headlamps shall be checked by means of an uncoloured standard (étalon) filament lamp designed for a rated voltage of 12 V. During the checking of the headlamp, the voltage at the terminals of the filament lamp shall be regulated so as to obtain the reference luminous flux at 13,2 V as indicated at the relevant data sheet of Regulation No 37.

In order to protect the standard (étalon) filament lamp during the process of photometric measurement it is permissible to carry out the measurements at a luminous flux that differs from the reference luminous flux at 13,2 V. If the test laboratory chooses to carry out measurements in such a manner the luminous intensity shall be corrected by multiplying the measured value by the individual factor Flamp of the standard (étalon) filament lamp in order to verify the compliance with the photometric requirements where:

Flamp = Φreferencetest

Φreference is the reference luminous flux at 13,2 V as specified in the relevant data sheet of Regulation No 37

Φtest is the actual luminous flux used for the measurement.

6.1.3.2.   Depending on the number of filament lamps for which the headlamp is designed, it shall be considered acceptable if it meets the requirements of paragraph 6 with the same number of standard (étalon) filament lamp(s), which may be submitted with the headlamp.

6.1.3.3.   LED module(s) shall be measured at 6,3 V or 13,2 V respectively, if not otherwise specified within this Regulation. LED module(s) operated by an electronic light source control gear, shall be measured as specified by the applicant.

6.1.4.   For Class E with (a) gas-discharge light source(s) according to Regulation No 99

6.1.4.1.   The headlamp shall be deemed satisfactory if the photometric requirements set in the present paragraph 6 are met with one light source, which has been aged during at least 15 cycles, in accordance with Annex 4, paragraph 4 of Regulation No 99.

Where the gas-discharge light source is approved according to Regulation No 99 it shall be a standard (étalon) light-source and its luminous flux may differ from the objective luminous flux specified in Regulation No 99. In this case, the illuminances shall be corrected accordingly.

The above correction does not apply to distributed lighting systems using a non-replaceable gas-discharge light source or to headlamps with the ballast(s) totally or partially integrated.

Where the gas-discharge light source is not approved according to Regulation No 99 it shall be a production non-replaceable light source.

The voltage applied to the terminals of the ballast(s) is: either: 13,2 V ± 0,1 V for 12 V systems or: as otherwise specified (see Annex 11).

6.1.4.2.   The dimensions determining the position of the arc inside the standard gas-discharge light source are shown in the relevant data sheet of Regulation No 99.

6.1.4.3.   Four seconds after ignition of a headlamp which has not been operated for 30 minutes or more, at least 37 500 cd must be reached at point HV of a driving beam and 3 750 cd at point 2 (0,86 D-V) of a passing beam for headlamps incorporating driving beam and passing beam functions, or 3 750 cd at point 2 (0,86 D-V) for headlamps having only a passing beam function. The power supply shall be sufficient to secure the quick rise of the high current pulse.

6.1.5.   For Class E with (an) LED module(s)

6.1.5.1.   LED module(s) shall be measured at 6,3 V or 13,2 V respectively, if not otherwise specified within this Regulation. LED module(s) operated by an electronic light source control gear, shall be measured as specified by the applicant.

6.1.6.   In the case of headlamp systems having additional light source(s) and/or additional lighting unit(s) used to produce bend lighting, the additional light source(s) shall be measured according to the paragraphs 6.1.3, 6.1.4 and 6.1.5.

6.2.   Provisions concerning passing beams

6.2.1.   For a correct aiming the principal passing beam shall produce a sufficiently sharp ‘cut-off’ to permit a satisfactory visual adjustment with its aid as indicated in paragraph 6.2.2 below. The aiming shall be carried out using a flat vertical screen set up at a distance of 10 or 25 m forward of the headlamp and at right angles to the H-V. The screen shall be sufficiently wide to allow examination and adjustment of the ‘cut-off’ of the passing beam over at least 3° on either side of the V-V line. The ‘cut-off’ shall be substantially horizontal and shall be as straight as possible from at least 3° L to 3° R. In case the visual aim leads to problems or ambiguous positions, the instrumental method as specified in Annex 9, paragraphs 2 and 4, shall be applied and the quality or rather the sharpness of the ‘cut-off’ and the linearity shall be checked on performance.

6.2.2.   The principal passing beam shall be aimed so that:

6.2.2.1.

For horizontal adjustment: The beam is as symmetrical as possible with reference to line V-V;

6.2.2.2.

For vertical adjustment: the horizontal part of the ‘cut-off’ line is adjusted to its nominal position (0,57 degree) below the H-H line.

If, however, vertical adjustment cannot be performed repeatedly to the required position within the allowed tolerances, the instrumental method of Annex 9, paragraphs 4 and 5 shall be applied to test compliance with the required minimum quality of the ‘cut-off’ line and to perform the beam vertical adjustment.

6.2.3.   When so aimed, the headlamp must, if its approval is sought solely for provision of a passing beam (10), comply with the requirements set out in paragraphs 6.2.5 and 6.2.6 below; if it is intended to provide both a passing beam and a driving beam, it shall comply with the requirements set out in paragraphs 6.2.5, 6.2.6 and 6.3.

6.2.4.   Where a headlamp so aimed does not meet the requirements set out in paragraphs 6.2.5, 6.2.6 and 6.3, its alignment may be changed, except for headlamps that have no mechanism to adjust horizontal aim, on condition that the axis of the beam is not displaced laterally by more than 0,5 degree to the right or left and vertically by not more than 0,25 degree up or down. To facilitate alignment by means of the ‘cut-off’, the headlamp may be partially occulted in order to sharpen the ‘cut-off’. However, the ‘cut-off’ should not extend beyond the line H-H.

6.2.5.   The passing beam shall meet the requirements as shown in the applicable table below and the applicable figure as shown in Annex 3.
