Abstract (en)

The headlamp arrangement has at least one lamp (1) or lamp coil, a reflector system and a projection list. There are a reflector (10) for the reflector system and a reflector (20) for the projection system. Only the reflector for the projection system can be moved along the optical axis and the projection lens (30) is fixed with reference to the reflector for the reflector system.

Abstract (de)

Die Erfindung betrifft eine Scheinwerferanordnung nach dem Projektionstyp für ein Kraftfahrzeug mit mindestens einer Lampe bzw. einer Lampenwendel, einem Reflektorsystem und einer Projektionslinse. Um bei einer Scheinwerferanordnung dieser Art, unter Gewährleistung optimaler Lichtausbeute, zwischen Abblendlicht und Fernlicht hin- und herschalten zu können, und dennoch den Bauraum zu minimieren, ist erfindungsgemäß vorgeschlagen, einen Reflektor für das Reflektionssystem und einem weiteren Reflektor für das Projektionssystem vorzusehen, wobei lediglich der Reflektor (20) des Projektionssystems entlang der optischen Achse verschiebbar und die Projektionslinse (30) relativ zum Reflektor des Reflektionssystemes ortsfest ist. <IMAGE>
