MechaTronix CoolFin® - Horticulture LED Cooling
Discover the new Horticulture Top Light platform that will change the landscape on Horticulture LED Lighting...
It all started with the basics of lighting - the smaller the light source, the easier the beam shape can be controlled with a TIR lens. LEDs have on itself no wavelength correction, what immediately implements that plants directly under the Top Light would be exposed to a higher amount of energy (μmol/m2/s) than those placed further away from the light source. So without any optical correction, homogeneous lighting on plants sensitive to fluctuations, would always be a fact. That is probably also one of the reasons why LED lighting is still in its beginning phase in the world of Floriculture. By concentrating the energy in a source as small as possible, you can modulate the beam into a batwing effect, what leads to an even dispersion of energy on the plants. Our aim with the CoolFin® is a maximum deviation of 10% of PAR energy over the field from a single luminaire.
To reach this, a central ultra-high power light engine is created consisting of 4 COB or LOB horti LED engines, each with its individual optics. We currently reach 1,500μmol/s out of 600 watts of energy, equivalent to 2.5μmol/J. Of course to do so, a highly advanced cooling platform had to be developed.
The CoolFin® is designed from an overall perspective of minimal height, resulting in a designed height of just 20cm, and aims at indoor LED Top Light applications without external sunlight. Powered by 16 sintered heat pipes, this full passive LED cooler has a thermal resistance as low as 0.1K/W.
With its headquarter in Kaohsiung Taiwan, a high-end R&D hub in Taipei Taiwan and global distribution facilities in Hong Kong and the Netherlands, MechaTronix leads the world of high-end LED cooling. From a spotlight cooler of a few thousands of lumens all the way to the top light for the national football arena, a wide range of LED coolers have been made standard off-the-shelf available. An in-depth knowledge of thermal management combined with a passion for lighting and aesthetics leads to the exorbitant market position MechaTronix occupies today. We challenge you to go arm-in-arm with us through your next LED cooling design and guarantee you a unique journey.
