TILS 2017: CoolFin® for horticulture LED cooling by MechaTronix Co., Ltd

With the rise of horticulture lighting these days, MechaTronix has developed CoolFin® for horticulture LED cooling.
 
The first model is a 600 watt ultra-compact light weight cooler based on advanced heat pipe technology, 270° tiltable, allowing users to freely adjust beam angles according to different needs - the ideal replacement for the current 1000 watt HID horticulture installed in the field.
In parallel, the major LED brands are preparing the first horticulture LED engines on this platform while the optic specialists are working on the lenses.

In horticulture farming we have to distinguish greenhouse farming from vertical farming or city farming projects.  Without the extra daylight the power used per square meter easily goes up as far as 400 watts per square meter.
Taken in account the losses seen above, that means that 200 watts of heat has to be cooled away, in a luminaire as small and light weight as possible, with respect to the environmental needs like waterproof IP degrees.
Looks challenging, but keep in mind that the energy saving effect in these power consuming environments only make the ROI’s shorter and more worth going for it compared to the old technology.
 
The launch of CoolFin® expected to be at the end of first quarter 2017, for more information on LED cooling for horticulture applications please contact MechaTronix (www.led-heatsink.com).
