Component Distributors, Inc. (CDI) is pleased to announce the addition of Furukawa Electric to its LED Lighting Solutions portfolio.
Drawing on many years of experience developing heat dissipation technologies for cooling computer CPUs, Furukawa Electric has designed the HYC Series of products to cool very high power COB LEDs, such as the CLU550 from Citizen Electronics. The HYC Series achieves less than half the weight of comparable die cast and extruded heat sinks, without sacrificing performance, by incorporating heat pipe and crimped fin technologies.

The current lineup of HYC Series products is supporting COB LEDs in a variety of stadium, theater and gymnasium lighting applications ranging from 130W to 500W.

CDI distributes the HYC Series of Furukawa Thermal Solutions across the Americas, including the USA, Canada, Mexico and Brazil. Product and purchasing information can be found on CDI’s website here:
