This standard provides test methods and requirements for snowmobile headlamps.
Rationale
Content
Today’s manufacturing technology has developed to the state of the art to allow increases in photometric capability. This capability and the state of manufacturing indicates that the minimum high beam candlepower consistantly produces over 12 000 candela and more than 18 000 candelas. Owing to this fact, the minimum candela at ½ down in the photometric Table 1 – Upper Beam, has been raised to 18 000 candelas minimum.
The section reference numbers to the required SAE J575 tests have been renumbered to agree with the latest J575 numbers. Due to this document being widely used as an industry standard, it has been raised to an SAE standard.
The majority of testing laboratories photometer at 100 ft (30.5 m). To accommodate this, the test distance is changed to a minimum distance of 60 ft (18.3 m).
