MechaTronix Launches LED Cooling for New Xicato XIM and XTM LED Modules

When Xicato introduced recently their new XIM Xicato Intelligent Module and XTM Xicato Thin Module, MechaTronix as preferred LED cooling partner immediately faced the challenge of developing a full new range of LED coolers for this LED platforms.

In this new developments not only the mechanical changes have been covered now the power and communication cable from the Xicato LED modules comes as a side feed, but MechaTronix also kept the latest design tendencies in mind. “Lighting designers want to go smaller and more elegant” according Koen Vangorp, General Manager at MechaTronix, “and the passive LED coolers were still a kind of an obstruction to achieve this.” “Therefore we have been spending thousands of hours on investigating how to get more cooling out of smaller diameters. As a result today we get about 20% to 30% more efficiency out of our latest generation LED coolers, what immediately translates itself as smaller LED coolers for the same lumen outputs.”

MechaTronix launches 8 new star shaped models for the Xicato XIM and XTM, all with the sibling looks of their famous ModuLED LED coolers which already garnered a lot of attention and positive reviews in the LED market. The new star LED coolers start at a diameter of 47 millimeter, suitable for luminaire designs up to 1750 lumen, while the new diameter 70 millimeter LED star cooler does the job up to 2.500 lumen.

A new revolution is for sure the new Xicato pin fin cooler diameter 47 millimeter. MechaTronix was able in this design to reach a thermal resistance as low as 3.9°C/W, what has never been witnessed before in this small diameter. With this revolution in efficiency a lighting designer can develop tomorrow a 2.000 lumen design in a diameter as small as an MR16 lamp.

Samples and stock are available through the MechaTronix worldwide distribution network
