Automotive Bulbs from ELTA

ELTA Automotive Limited are proud to be an ISO 9001 accredited company. Commitment to quality flows through everything we do.

All ELTA Automotive bulbs are “E” Marked where relevant. “E” marking refers to the ECE Regulation 37 Standards. This specifies acceptable light output, filament geometry, voltage and wattage and the size and shape of the bulbs. The number after the “E” identifies the country in which approval was granted. ELTA VisionPRO Halogen bulbs are “E” Marked in Germany (E1) which is highly regarded for stringent quality standards. Other ELTA Automotive bulbs are typically “E” marked in the equally highly regarded UK (E11) or Netherlands (E4.)

As a certified data provider to the industries most renown catalogues, all ELTA automotive bulb application data can be accessed via TecDoc, Autocat+, Aldoc and our online catalogue.

All products are designed to deliver original equipment performance combined with outstanding reliability and undergo meticulous testing procedures throughout the manufacturing process and beyond, including:

Light Flux

Light flux, colour temperature and luminous intensity is tested in-house at the Elta Automotive test facility using state-of-the-art Labsphere equipment.


Coloured bulbs are tested for chromaticity to ensure light falls within required colour range. This is of particular importance for amber bulbs which are required to fall within specific colour coordinates.

Life Testing

All bulbs are life tested to ensure longevity and reliability using cutting edge test rigs. Bulbs are cycled on and off and through both filaments for twin filament bulbs to simulate real world usage.

Vibration and Shock

In use, the bulbs will also be subject to vibration and shock and so this is also simulated at the test facility. This is an especially important test for heavy duty and long-life bulbs.

Geometric Measurement

In order to produce a perfect beam pattern, bulbs are tested for pin point accuracy of all dimensions and filament positions. Tests are conducted using precision shadowgraph projection equipment.
