LED cooler platform targets outdoor lighting

February 10, 2017 // By Julien Happich
MechaTronix' 2x2MX platform can take 4 high power LEDs (typical 10W), 4 groups of mid power LEDs, or 4 COBs to generate from 4000 up to 6000 lumen from a compact 96x96mm footprint.

The complete LED engine is IP67 waterproof after assembly for outdoor applications like high mast luminaires, industrial flood lights or street lights.

Standard led engines for the 2x2MX platform can be found from Lumileds (Luxeon XR-M), Osram (P10 2x2MX), Adura Sinkpad (wide variety of boards with Cree, Lumileds…) and other tier 1 suppliers. For the lenses a wide range of 2x2MX formats have been developed by Ledil, dubbed the Strada 2x2MX, with models made out of PMMA and made out of silicone in various beam patterns. Also COBs can be used on the platform instead of high power LEDs. The cooling for the platform was developed by MechaTronix and named the CoolBlock SQ-01 2x2MX. This is a patented advanced pin fin cooler made by die casting, foreseen from an electro plating specifically suitable for outdoor use. The building block on itself is a proven concept, both from lighting as from a thermal point of view.
