In cooperation with the developer, we can advise about the best mechanical design of the LED fixture.
Color and intensity
When designing a custom LED fixture, the colour(s) and intensity (lumen) can be selected depending on the application.
Waterproof IP68 and IK10
If possible, the fixture can be moulded. A fully cast in LED fixture is IP68 and IK10 classified.
With large capacities it is necessary to keep the heat management optimal. LED road fixtures need to be designed with extreme weather conditions in mind.
In order to meet the technical requirements of the LED application, sometimes a choice has to be made for casting the housing. The casting is done with a casting resin suitable for the application. The composition of the casting resin is determined by the application.
Monitoring and delamination
When the housing is provided with a casting resin, it is recommended to monitor the installation. The reason for this is that the housing and the casting resin have different coefficients of expansion (elongation and shrinkage) at high temperatures. There is a chance that the casting resin will delaminate from the housing.
