NPFC - MIL-PRF-32243
LIGHT EMITTING DIODE (LED) MILITARY DRIVING HEADLAMP
|Publication Date:||10 June 2019|
This standard establishes, unless otherwise specified, the minimum requirements for engineering acceptance for the operation, performance, and reliability of what is commonly termed as the seven (7) inch round Forward Lighting Driving Headlamp, for military vehicles, with Light Emitting Diodes (LED) as the base of their technology for illumination and compliance with applicable SAE, United States Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS), Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (CMVSS), MIL Standards and Military Performance Specifications. The lamps will be designed to conform to the photometry, mechanical, electrical and special performance requirements referenced within this document where applicable. Each production part need not be tested to the specified validation tests as proof of compliance. The headlamp may be supplied as a replacement part or as a component in a finished assembly.

LED lamps covered by this performance specification are intended primarily for the purpose of replacing current incandescent headlamps. LED technology that is properly designed, is not vulnerable to shock and vibration and therefore performs much better in severe end-use environments. By converting incandescent lamp products to LED, the lamps often last the life of the vehicle thus eliminating maintenance and field service issues.View Less
