Vibration Resistance

Definition: Vibration Resistance

What is vibration resistance?

Vibration resistance is very similar to shock resistance. When a product is resistant to vibrations, you know that the product does not suffer from them in use. It does not break down quickly and you can also use the product in the expected manner. In the case of LED vehicle lighting, it indicates that when there is vibration in the vehicle or in the road surface, the lighting will still work properly.

Vibrations in vehicles occur regularly. There are many different causes. There may be an engine problem or a problem with the gearbox. But it can also be that the tyres are not perfectly round. The rims and brake discs can also be the cause of vibrations in the vehicle.

What about LED lighting?

As previously mentioned, different types of lighting are resistant to vibrations in the vehicle or on the road surface. Consider, for example, different LED work lights within the TRALERT® product range. Some lighting, such as various work lamps, are built to withstand vibrations. Other lighting has other specifications that contribute to its service life. A good example of this is the LED side marker lights. Several side marker lights are equipped with a stem of rubber. This ensures that the lamp always moves a little with the vibrations or shocks. This movement makes the lamp much more resistant.

A final example are the lights that are connected by means of the flexible DIN mounting. This type of mounting ensures that the lighting also moves a little. Just like the rubber stem of the side marker lights. By moving with the lamp, the vibrations and bumps are less, making the lamp more resistant to them. DIN mounting can be found at various places, including LED beacons.
