LED Heat Sink Technology

- Apr 30, 2020-

LED lights operate at much cooler physical temperatures and convert more electrical energy input into useful light rather than wasteful excess heat. Nonetheless, heat will build up in the semiconductor driver circuitry of an LED light, and that heat can degrade performance and shorten the life of the fixture and system over time, not to mention that excess heat is a major factor in indoor cultivation facilities.

To improve performance and extend the LED fixture’s useful lifespan, manufacturers typically utilize some form of passive thermal management technology that draws heat away from the base of the light where it is dissipated into the ambient surroundings.
