Nuventix introduces the smallest, lightest LED thermal solution for high bay fixtures
Date Announced: 12 Feb 2013
SynJet R150-170 drastically increases cost-savings for high bay LED lighting; enables easier design and installation
Santa Clara, CA – From Strategies in Light 2013, Nuventix, Inc. introduced its flagship high bay product the LED Cooler R150-170, in answer to the ever evolving cooling needs of the LED industry. Built with the company’s patented SynJet technology, the new high bay LED cooler is 33 percent smaller and 60 percent lighter than passive cooling equivalents used in industrial high bay fixtures, and is easy to fit into pendant form factor designs.
“Our customers wanted more lumens from a smaller design for high bay applications and we delivered – companies simply can’t cool 20,000 lumens in a 6-inch diameter design without our new SynJet cooler,” said Jim Balthazar, CEO and president of Nuventix. “High bay lighting is an area of great potential and growth for the LED industry. The energy paybacks are immediate, and SynJet technology makes these savings even greater.”
The modular solution can be used independently as a stand-alone heatsink or with up to three SynJets, enabling flexibility in design and cooling and allowing for an entire line of low bay and high bay luminaires with the same form factor. Due to its heat pipes and the SynJet air transfer, the R150-170 has exceptional heat spreading and can cool up to 20,000 lumens in a round shape design. The efficiency of this design allows for the use of low cost compact LED arrays running at high currents without sacrificing color quality, brightness, or lifetime.
The R150-170 high bay solution reduces the total cost of ownership of the LED system by maintaining thermal performance over the life of the system, saving on maintenance costs for end-users. High bay LED luminaires require significantly less in maintenance costs than fluorescents or 400-watt metal halide systems assuming the LEDs meet their rated performance with effective thermal management. Customers will also realize more than 30 percent energy cost reduction from fluorescents and more than 40 percent from 400-watt metal halides.
LED lighting manufactures will also realize substantial cost savings with the R150-170 SynJet solution. Because of the R150-170 cooler’s advanced thermal spreading and heat transfer capabilities, lighting manufacturers will be able to use smaller, less-expensive LED arrays and still achieve high color quality and lumen output.
Nuventix’ new LED high bay product, the LED Cooler R150-170, and the expanded line of heatsinks and LED cooling solutions will be showcased at Strategies in Light 2013 in Booth #700 from February 12 to 14, and are also available this month.
Since 2003, Nuventix has been dedicated to providing the only answer to the increasingly difficult problem of energy efficient and space-saving thermal management for LED lighting and electronics. The Nuventix SynJet offers a reliable, quiet and effective cooling solution in a wide variety of sizes and form factors. The energy efficiency of Nuventix’ SynJets maintain the LED lighting value proposition and lowers costs for end users. Utilized by customers worldwide, Nuventix continues to develop new solutions for the ever evolving LED lighting industry.
