Fischer Offers New LED Heatsinks with Integrated Mounting Hole Pattern

Fischer Offers New LED Heatsinks with Integrated Mounting Hole Pattern Wrongly the LED is often designated as a cold radiator and gives the impression that no further cooling is necessary. In reality only approx. 35 % of the used electrical energy is converted to light output according to the latest LED technology. The remaining amount of energy develops a heat loss in analogy to common semi-conductor elements which necessarily has to be emitted to the ambient air by means of an effective thermal management. Specifically on that point company Fischer Elektronik GmbH & Co. KG extends the wide range of products on innovative LED heatsinks. Read more »

MechaTronix Launches First Horticulture Cooling Platforms

MechaTronix Launches First Horticulture Cooling Platforms That horticulture lighting is hot these days is an understatement. The media attention, dedicated events and manifold speakers attracting the listeners all point out that there is a big future (read capital) behind led lighting in the horti- and agriculture sphere. All the players are preparing their strategies and products to earn a piece of the pie, and so is one of the thermal market leaders, MechaTronix from Taiwan. We speak to Koen Vangorp, CEO of the company. “The thermal challenges and opportunities in horticulture lighting are from an unprecedented level and will definitely impact the future of our company. Were MechaTronix started off with cooling of spot lights and down lights ranging from a few hundred to a few thousand lumen, they now end up in the era of kilowatts of energy losses which need to be cooled away, environments with extreme needs on temperature and humidity control, and nothing yet standardized on the market…” Read more »
