Thermal Management.
ensuring years of reliable performance.

One of the most common reasons for LED failure is overheating.

The junction temperature on the chip can never exceed a certain level or the LED will get damaged and start to permanently degrade. Working on architectural projects, where most of the delicately planned lighting designs are located outside, it is crucial to install reliable fittings that will deliver stunning performance even after years of working under the hot sun.

Coolon luminaires are developed with both passive and active thermal management, ensuring years of predictable performance and beautiful lighting.

Our active thermal management technology monitors the junction temperature of the LED automatically dimming the luminaire if the ambient temperature is too high and ensuring the components are protected from long-term damage.

Supplemented with aluminium heat sinks for passive thermal management.

What happens when it's exposed to excessive heat?

When overheating is detected the light automatically dims to avoid degrading and prevent any damage to the luminaire. Once the ambient temperature is reduced back to harmless levels the LEDs return to full power. This technology is featured in every one of our low voltage products with optical control ensuring years of reliable performance and stunning light.
