suggestion for red bullets
« on: December 29, 2009, 04:36:48 PM »
hi... was reading the questions and answers regarding the possibility of 'red' led bullets, and as you said previously that its difficult to find a suitable red led to stand up to the job... how about some kind of 'domed shaped' red filtered lens that could be placed over the original white led bullets? or even included in the front of the design??  just a thought as i too have been watching this forum regarding this suggestion, and are just as keen on some red ones myself!!!   :)

Hi Kev,
 
Thanks for the suggestion, I might try to see what results that produces...   however it pans out we will have a red unit in the future as there have been so many requests.
 
Stay tuned :)

That is excellent news Dan :)

Think the problem with the lens idea is that a red lens would filter out all other colours that make up the LED output, so you end up with a lower light output.

hmmm... have just offered a bicycle led light red lens cover up to the led pods and supprisingly enough.. plenty of red light is emitted through!!!  infact, i was quite supprised with the result. Cant take a pic of this as the bicycle red lense is far too big to be able to hold it in place, plus i did'nt fancy trying to 'un-stick' the led pod from my fairing and risk messing up the adhesive pad! lol

Thats interesting Kev, White light LEDs are alot brighter than a proper red emitter LED which may explain this to some extent. Some research needed I think.

I'd definitely be up for some red pods for the rear after the last few mornings in the fog.


Bikes are the only vehicle allowed on the road without a rear high intensity fog light.

I'd go with the high intensity Fog Light idea. BUT, I think that red front-facing runners might be illegal since it is the highway code that states white light at the front and red at the rear  :-[ .. BUT , I'm running a pair of blue LED bullets on my bike which might not be legal either. :D I think they may be less illegal than red though :o ..   Personally I dont care as long as I stand more chance of survival out on the road. These lights are superb ..  ;D

..and if you are producing red bullets would be good to check that they work on single wire canbus rear lights that double as break lights by regulating the voltage as found on modern beemers amongst others. Happy to do some testing for you if you have any prototypes  ;) .
