Opto Tech unveils modular LED street light
A streamlined LED lighting fixture from Opto Tech has a number of interesting design developments including a modular design and a copper heat pipe for cooling.
The fixture is streamlined and ultra-thin, with a depth of only 80mm (just over 3 inches). The company is emphasizing four features -a modularized design, a unique cooling technology, a new optical design, and an efficient power module.
The street lights use high efficiency Nichia LEDs. A recent deal between Nichia and Opto Tech extended the manufacturing and sales cooperation between the companies (see News).
The company describes its product as a “breathing street light” due to its “unique” cooling technology. The heat generated by the optical module is quickly and effectively removed via a copper heat pipe connected to an aluminum heat sink positioned below ventilation holes in the bottom cover.
Meanwhile, the power module has 90% and above conversion efficiency and its constant current output can last LED lifetime over the long-term.
Currently, the products have passed the testing and verification standards and new patents have been applied for in the USA, China, and Taiwan. Government agencies and businesses have already inquired about and ordered this product, says Opto Tech.
