The Scientists of Lighting | Baja Designs
Being able to service your own equipment is a necessity when out on the trail or back home in your garage. You never know when damage will happen while out on your adventures. As enthusiasts ourselves, Baja Designs set out to make a light that is easily serviceable without damaging your performance lights. This is the core mission behind ourthat’s built into every light Baja Designs produces.
Serviceability is Key
The serviceability of our lights is based around the compression of our unique O-ring seal that protects the sensitive internals of your lights from the elements such as dust and water. Where lesser quality lights use a silicone seal that are not designed for serviceability and are prone to seal leaks, the Baja Designs O-ring design allows our lights to be totally servicable by the user who can service and adjust the beam pattern with replacement lenses that are offered from Baja Designs.
Our uService® technology is based around the compression of O-Ring seals instead of a silicone seal, thius giving a completely waterproof and dustproof seal that make Baja Designs’ lights IP69K rated. Using this specially designed O-ring allows our lights to be totally serviceable, thanks to the uService® technology. This feature allows you to customize our lights with several of our lens kits to match your lighting needs. If for any reason you damage your lens or want to change the pattern of light, our uService technology allows users to easily refresh your product in minutes. Simply unscrew the Baja Designs’ water and dust-proof lens and O-Ring seal to install the replacement lens, getting you back on the trail quickly. Our SAE lights do not fall under our uService® technology.
“The ultimate goal of lighting is to provide a smooth field of light so the driver can drive quickly with minimal fatigue. My engineering and racing knowledge combined with the feedback of our professional racers and drivers has allowed us to develop the best optics in the industry.” – Alan Roach, Baja Designs Engineer, Founder and Racer.
Each optic is designed to illuminate one or more of seven specific Lighting Zones. BD’s racing engineers were the first to define these lighting zones and to design specific patterns for the lesser known cornering, dust/fog and High Speed Spot zones. BD’s Wide Cornering and Wide Driving patterns were the first HID and LED lights that offered both a horizontal cut off and a wide pattern to make the light usable in fog or dust without causing blinding back scatter and also fill the important cornering zone so the driver doesn’t feel like he is driving in a tunnel. BD’s High Speed Spot™ has revolutionized LED lighting by truly achieving the distance of an HID with the smoothness of an LED. Other patterns available are Driving, Spot, Flood/Work and Dome/Interior. Amber patterns are also available.
Our circuit boards use copper instead of aluminum to help transfer heat more efficiently from the LED to the thermal gap pad. The thermal gap pad plays an important role in aiding heat transfer to the heat sink, which keeps the LEDs cool and also provides for vibration damping. The microprocessor-controlled thermistors help to constantly monitor the temperature of the LED to ensure brightness and longevity.
We’ve integrated new components onto our circuitry to manage the amount of draw that our OnX6 is pulling from your vehicle. When your vehicle’s charging system drops below 13.5V with the light bar on, our light will begin to gradually throttle its output to maintain a constant current. Reasons for your vehicle reaching this voltage would be turning on lights, stereo equipment, air compressors, and other accessories. This results in slight dimming to the light, protection of wiring harness, and added protection to all of your vehicle’s electrical system.
Warranties cover defects in design and manufacturing only. Warranties do not cover, among other things: installation errors, wear and tear, acts of God, misuse, abuse, neglect, accidents, collisions, defects due to custom specifications provided by you, or any product modifications, configurations or combinations not performed by us or on our behalf.
