Nuventix Thermal Management Cools World’s First Zhaga Certified LED Recessed Luminaire from Cooper Lighting
ZFlow 75, Spotlight LED Cooler 34W SynJet® and Heatsink provides thermal management for IRiS P3LED recessed accent light
AUSTIN, TX – June 20, 2012 – Nuventix, Inc., developer of SynJet® thermal management solutions, provides the cooling solution for the first Zhaga certified luminaire. The IRiS™ Lighting Systems P3LED directional series, a directional luminaire with a field-replaceable LED array from Cooper Lighting, applies the SynJet ZFlow 75 and Spotlight LED Cooler 34W LED Heatsink for its thermal management needs.
In addition to delivering the inherent strengths of synthetic jet technology that enable brighter, quieter, energy efficient, reliable and longer-lasting LED lights, the Spotlight LED Cooler 34W provides compact 34W of cooling with an 87 mm diameter – making it the ideal thermal management solution for recessed directional downlights like the IRiS P3LED.
Since joining Zhaga, a global cooperation formed to develop standards for the LED lighting industry, Nuventix has contributed its thermal management knowledge and experience to help LED designers and manufacturers build energy efficient lighting solutions without thermal constraints, and to advance interchangeability of LED light sources that reduce cost and risk.
“The Nuventix SynJet is the only thermal management solution that delivers reliable cooling without sacrificing design freedom and flexibility, and we’re very excited that it was chosen by Cooper Lighting to cool the premier Zhaga certified fixture,” said Jim Balthazar, president and CEO of Nuventix. “Along with Zhaga, we continue to commit ourselves to advancing standards that will bring widespread market adoption of LED lighting.”
Nuventix is equipped to offer cooling solutions for light engines in all current Zhaga-compliant LED luminaires as well as future modules, and is also contributing to Zhaga book development. The interface specification for one light engine is called a “book,” and the Spotlight Cooler 34W is in Book 3, which addresses a spotlight engine with a separate control gear.
Designed for small, cost-effective form factors in spotlights, tracklights and recess downlights, the ZFlow 75, Spotlight Cooler 34W SynJet allows the IRiS P3LED to combine the flexibility of interchangeable optics with improved light quality, energy savings and sustainability that maximizes a building’s performance. The IRiS P3LED was also recognized by the fourth annual Next Generation Luminaires (NGL) and Solid-State Lighting (SSL) Design Competition at Lightfair International 2012.
“Thermal management is key to making LED lighting viable and the thermal interface between LED light sources and luminaires needs standardization to enable interchangeability of LED light sources,” said Menno Treffers, secretary general, Zhaga.
