LED stadium floodlights

At present, one of the biggest technical problems of LED lamps is the heat dissipation problem. The poor heat dissipation has caused the LED light source to decay prematurely, which limits the further development of the driving power supply. 

Only by exposing the heat as soon as possible can the cavity temperature in the LED lamp be effectively reduced, in order to protect the power supply from working in a long-lasting high temperature environment, in order to avoid premature aging of the LED light source due to long-term high temperature operation.

Because the LED light source itself does not have infrared rays or ultraviolet rays, the LED light source itself has no radiation heat dissipation function, and the heat dissipation path of the LED lamp can only be used to derive heat through a heat sink closely combined with the LED lamp bead. The heat sink must have the functions of heat conduction, heat convection, and heat radiation.

Any radiator, in addition to being able to quickly transfer heat from the heat source to the surface of the radiator, the most important thing is to convect and radiate heat into the air. Thermal conduction only solves the heat transfer path, and thermal convection is the main function of the heat sink. 

The heat dissipation performance is mainly determined by the heat dissipation area, shape, and the ability of natural convection intensity. Thermal radiation is only an auxiliary function. In general, if the distance of heat from the heat source to the surface of the heat sink is less than 5 mm, then as long as the thermal conductivity of the material is greater than 5, the heat can be derived, and the rest of the heat must be dominated by heat convection.

Most LED lighting sources still use low voltage (VF=3.2V), high current (IF=200-700mA) LED lamp beads. Due to the high heat during operation, aluminum alloy with high thermal conductivity must be used. There are usually die-cast aluminum radiators, extruded aluminum radiators, and stamped aluminum radiators.

Die-cast aluminum radiator

Die-cast aluminum radiator is a kind of technology of pressure casting parts. The liquid zinc-copper-aluminum alloy is poured into the inlet of the die-casting machine, and die-casting is carried out by a die-casting machine to cast a shape-shaped heat sink defined by a pre-designed mold. The heat sink cannot be made thin, and it is difficult to maximize the heat dissipation area.

Extruded aluminum radiator

The extruded aluminum heat sink is formed by extruding liquid aluminum through a fixed mold and then machining the rod into a desired shape of the heat sink. The heat dissipating wings can be made a lot of thin, and the heat dissipating area is maximized. When the cooling fins work, the air convection heat is automatically formed, and the heat dissipating effect is better.

Stamped aluminum radiator

The stamped aluminum radiator punches and pulls the steel and aluminum alloy plates through the punching machine and the die, making it a cup-type radiator. The inner and outer periphery of the stamped heat sink is smooth, and the heat-dissipating area is limited due to the wingless.
