New COB Holders from Bender + Wirth Using Micanite

The new Bender + Wirth COB Holder Hybrid 630 combines the design flexibility of injection molding with a superior thermal performance because of a "Heart of Stone". - They feature micanite to achieve this unmatched performance.

Much like the 430 series, the 630 holder is a modular concept designed to accommodate an infinite combination of COBs and optics. The program will start with 120 different variations.

The holder improves the heat transfer from the COB to the heat sink and thermally disconnects the optics. Because of the mechanical integrity of micanite, the COB actually operates at a lower temperature which helps prevent premature LED failure.

Clip in function and push in terminals make the holders convenient for high levels of production. The automated assembly of the holder generates cost benefits.
