MechaTronix Advanced Pin Fin LED Coolers

MechaTronix pin fin coolers were specifically developed to optimize free air convection behind LED spot and track lights that are tilted over 50 degrees. In tests comparing comparable extruded aluminum heat sinks against these second generation pin fin LED coolers, both had similar cooling performance in the classic vertical position. But once they were tilted to angles greater than 50 degrees, the pin fin LED coolers kept functioning while the extruded aluminum heat sinks lost more than 20% of their original cooling capacity.

Extruded Aluminum Heat Sink Pin Fin Since there is no forced air movement, free air convection is the main cooling component as the radiation effect only counts for a few percent. The open structure of the LED pin fin cooler does not obstruct the vertically rising hot air.
