MechaTronix unveils small LED coolers for TILS and Light+Building
Mar 13th, 2014
While the market continues moving from custom made cooling systems to standard off-the-shelf products, MechaTronix releases 7 more passive LED coolers in small diameters focusing on luminaire cooling from 600 to 3.200 lumen.
It’s not that custom cooler developments don’t have a future any more, but the market is moving so fast in development of new LED COBs and modules that luminaires might be outdated before they find their way to the mass public.
Therefore the modularity in mounting patters foreseen on the MechaTronix LED coolers offer a kind of flexibility in the choice of current and future light sources which can be matched.
A second tendency is for sure the decrease in overall size of the luminaire, where the cooling accounts for a large part.
Of course the continuous increase in light efficiency automatically means that less cooling is needed for more light output.
Whereas 2 years ago a recessed down light of 3000 lumen was hard to manage without the use of an active LED cooler, today we easily reach 4500 lumen designs with passive cooling in acceptable dimensions.
Since the needed light output in the applications doesn't go up, this means there is a growing demand for smaller diameter standard LED coolers.
As a result of that MechaTronix has developed 7 new models in star and pin fin LED cooling technology, ranging from diameter 47mm to diameter 70mm.
MechaTronix will unveil this latest revelation in LED cooling at the Taiwan International Lighting show (TILS) and Light + Building in Germany.
Not all details of this new LED cooler developments are made public yet, but the R&D team at MechaTronix has promised an astonishing 1500 lumen cooling performance in a diameter 47mm LED cooler.
