While common “fin” style heat sinks are cheaper to produce, they also require frequent cleaning. Dust particles accumulate between the fins, reducing the effectiveness of the heat sink and resulting in high operational temperatures for the diodes.
High LED temperatures will result in irreversible decrease in light output and yields.
Fin style heat sink
Discoloration of LED board due to insufficient thermal management
Heat is the enemy of Light Emitting Diodes. Cooler operating temperature equals higher light output. Properly designed thermal management is crucial to protect your investment in LED.
PHOTOBIO uses a patented heat sink design providing ample thermal management ensuring high output, long service life, and minimal maintenance.
