MechaTronix Introduces ModuLED Modular Passive LED Cooling

Of course looks matter in the LED lighting world… Even for recessed spot and down lights, you still have to sell it first, and at that point the look and feel of a product makes the first impressions

And that’s exactly what the ModuLED modular passive LED coolers are designed for. - An high end aesthetic look, combined with a perfect thermal performance and a modularity in mechanical design what allows you to easily mount different LED engines on the same LED cooler and add up secondary optics or mounting option.s

From point of view of modularity on LED engines all Zhaga book 3 compatible modules like the Edison Edilex, Tridonic TALEXX Stark, Vossloh Schwabe Lugashop,… as well as some specific modules like the Bridgelux RS array, Citizen CLL030/040/050/032/042/052 series and the Xicato XPM & XSM LED engines can be mounted with standard self tapping screws M3x6mm.

With the Zhaga book 3 mounting availability also specific LED COB’s like the Sharp Mega Zenigata, Citizen CLL030 and Edison Opto Edipower II HM can be easily mounted in combination with the Zhaga LED holders from BJB or TE Connectivity, what immediately gives you click and forget mounting availability for a wide range of reflectors.

Performance wise the ModuLED LED coolers are ideal for luminaires from 1200 lumen to 4000 lumen (Rth1.02°C/W) and are thermally verified for the MechaTronix eco partners Bridgelux, Citizen, Edison Opto, Lustrous, Philips Lumileds, Prolight Opto, Tridonic, Vossloh Schwabe and Xicato.
