What is lowbeam?

If you are looking for lighting, you may have come across the term lowbeam. But what is it exactly? Lowbeam can be compared to the dipped beam of a car. It cannot blind other road users when someone drives up. This is due to the different light beam in comparison with, for example, low-beam headlights. highbeam. Low- and highbeam obviously have a completely different light pattern.

When mandatory?

The use of dipped headlights is compulsory in several situations. Since low-beam is similar to dipped-beam, it is possible to say that this can also be compulsory. The important thing is that some form of dipped headlights must be used in a number of situations. It is fairly easy to explain when low beam is compulsory. It is when it is dark outside. When visibility is poor, using dipped headlights during the day is also very important. When you use the lights incorrectly, you may receive a fine. It is also possible that the vehicle does not pass the inspection.
