Thermal management is a key factor that limits the lumen output and efficiency of an LED lightsource. While as much as 80 percent more energy efficient than traditional incandescent lighting, the LED components still create a considerable amount of heat. If this heat is not dissipated properly, the quality of light and life expectancy of the LED lightsource decreases dramatically.
In order to reach the desired lumen values in a small form factor, active cooling may be required to effectively dissipate the heat produced by the LED components. Active cooling technology offers thermal capabilities that are superior to passive heat sinks and can raise performance while reducing the size of the lighting fixture. With inaudible noise performance and industry-leading German engineered reliability, ebm-papst can provide the perfect solution for your LED cooling problems.
