13.17. External illumination

External illumination Mondeo consists of the basic headlights, back and brake lanterns, lanterns of a backing, forward and back antifog headlights, and also lanterns of indexes of turn and licence plate illumination. Other light sources are described in the head car Salon.

The external headlight consists of a light source, a reflector and рассеивателя. As light sources in the basic and antifog headlights Mondeo uses галогенные lamps – at desire Mondeo can shine roads and by means of the xenon lamps. Its basic headlight, accordingly two special forms of a plastic reflector serially "contains". Contrary to headlights of a usual design – their light sources are connected accordingly by a parabolic reflector, and профилированный рассеиватель projects light on road – reflectors of any form distribute the light on set of reflecting sectors with various geometrical forms.

Delivery at will: the xenon light instead of plastic reflectors of any form with галогенными lamps.

As a result of it various angles of slope of the reflected light beams concerning a reflexion axis are generated. Or is shorter: cвет "distribute" along road only reflectors with various focuses – рассеиватель with usual functions here it would be absolutely not pertinent. According to it «рассеиватели» from polycarbonate carry out in Mondeo "windowpane" functions, they protect "interiors" of headlights from influence of meteoconditions, a road dirt and external damages.

"Outer garments" – two different lamps for distant and a passing light

As "headlight" the legislator orders use of special distribution of light with asymmetric light-to-dark border. In the countries with right-hand movement the light maximum concentrates on the right carriageway, differently «the left road ditch» will appear in a focus point. Passing light Mondeo "scoops" the energy from галогенной lamps Н7 on 55 Watt, «distant distances» shine галогенные lamps Н1 also about 55 Watt.

It is rational to have onboard the spare complete set of lamps

At us in the country the legislator without fail orders, that all external lighting means functioned constantly. Therefore the far-sighted driver takes with itself the spare complete set of bulbs. In Mondeo bulbs on 12 Volt usually "burn":

Passing light – Н7/55 IN
Headlight – H1L/55 IN
Antifog фары* – H11/55 IN
– A lamp with a spherical flask/21 In (orange)
Indexes of turn lobbies – A lamp with a glass socle/5 In
Lay fires lobbies – A lamp with a glass socle/5 In
Indexes of turn the lateral – A lamp with a spherical flask/21 In
Indexes of turn the back – A lamp with a glass socle/5 In
Back lanterns – A lamp with a spherical flask/21 In
Back antifog headlights  – A lamp with a spherical flask/21 In
Lanterns of a signal of braking / back dimensional fires – A lamp with a glass socle/5 In
Additional signals of braking (5) – Н1/55 IN
Lanterns of a backing licence plate Illumination Sofitnaja a lamp/5 In
Luggage carrier illumination – A lamp with a glass socle/5 In
Salon illumination Sofitnaja a lamp/10 In
Lamp for reading – A lamp with a glass socle/5 In

* Mondeo with a sports bumper: H3/55 In


Regulation of an angle of slope of headlights

At factory everyone Mondeo is equipped with system of regulation of an angle of slope of headlights. Thereby range of illumination by headlights strictly corresponds to current loading – oncoming traffic transport in no event cannot be blinded. The system of regulation of an angle of slope of headlights works from the step-by-step engine operated pressure. By means of the working switch located to the left of a steering wheel, it is possible to change adjusting resistance. It transfers further the chosen pressure to adjusting engines: depending on installation the spindle regulates reflector position in the case of a headlight. At base installation, that is calculated on "loading" of two persons, накатный the roller should stand in position «0», the scale in Mondeo has a range from «0 to«2».

It is co-ordinated: headlights you co-ordinate range of illumination depending on loading by means of a regulator of an angle of slope of headlights.
