TOKYO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Furukawa Electric Co., Ltd. (TOKYO:5801) is launching sales of the new HYC Series heat dissipation products for LED lighting equipment. By achieving lightweight and compact form, the HYC Series reduces the constraints on the seismic design of LED lighting, and in turn it reduces the burden of installation work and the like.
Currently, cast aluminum products and heat dissipation parts comprising lumps of metal including extruded products are commonly used for heat dissipation in LED lighting, but as heat dissipation parts get larger and heavier in keeping with the higher output of LED lighting, problems with LED lighting equipment that is hard to handle as well as constraints on seismic designs are occurring.
This year, Furukawa Electric is fully launching sales of the HYC
Series lightweight and compact heat dissipation
products designed for LED lighting equipment.
The HYC Series draws on the heat dissipation/cooling technologies and expertise in electronics products that Furukawa Electric has developed over many years, and with this heat dissipation performance, in addition, HYC Series has been achieved less than half the weight as compared to conventional cast aluminum and extruded heat dissipation parts. This is ideal for cooling the high power LED modules that are mainly used in high ceiling lighting for warehouses, factories, and gymnasiums, as well as outdoor floodlights and the like.
“It is a pleasure to be able to release HYC Series.” says Ryoji Ono, Corporate Vice President of The Thermal Management Solution & Products Div. ”We will continuously work to provide heat-sink devices which can contribute to people and society”
To start with, Furukawa Electric is launching sales of two types: the HYC 130c (weighing 0.78 kg) 100 – 130 W crimped fin type heat sink, and the 200 W class HYC 200 (weighing 1.2 kg) heat pipe heat sink. Furukawa Electric is planning to add to the lineup going forward in keeping with the further increase of high power LED modules.
