While very efficient, LEDs produce heat that must be dissipated in lighting designs and retrofits, and this is often a challenge for engineers who do not have an extensive thermal management background. Wakefield’s new heat sink extrusions save engineers the considerable time it can take to match the right heat sink with the right LED. Offering the maximum thermal management performance, they can accommodate top or side mounting with Bridgelux LEDs.
"LED lighting systems continue their rapid growth in multiple markets,” comments Wayne Frerichs, President and CEO of Wakefield Solutions, Inc. "Our collaborative design effort to align our newly-developed heat sinks with unique LED arrays will provide Newark's customers with the lighting performance they deserve."
“We are committed to offering engineers innovative solutions that increase performance,” says Jeff Uden, VP Product Management, Newark. “With products from more than 500 top manufacturers available to ship the same day, our customers can also count on getting their orders just when they need them.”
