Thermal management for LED lighting manufacturers

Moving on from my overview of common thermal 'problems and solutions' published in last month's column, I'd like to focus more closely this month on a specific application area for thermal management solutions - and it's a 'hot' one, too: LED luminaires and their associated electronics. The LED lighting industry is a global growth phenomenon and the sector's demand for effective, high-quality…

Thermal management: Problems and Solutions

In my last piece I expressed what I hoped would prove a good starting point for my series of articles on the all-important subject of thermal management. This was a five-point guide, which I was able to compile based on the many questions that our customer support teams field every day on the telephone, at exhibitions and when visiting customers’ premises. I do hope readers have found it useful.

This month I’d like to progress…

Thermal Management: The Heat is On

For some months now, my colleague Alistair Little has been taking a close look at resins and their role in circuit protection across an array of applications. He now hands the reins over to me, Jade Bridges, and in this, the first of what I hope will be a series of informative blogs, I am going to focus on the all-important subject of thermal management. First, though, let me introduce myself.

I've worked for Electrolube for 14 years now, starting as a Development Chemist, then as the Research & Development Manager working…
