LED engines can be designed to have a wide spectrum of wavelengths. Specifications such as wavelength distribution, beam angle, PPF and PPFD, etc. must be taken into account when designing.
The intensity can be controlled and the PWM frequency is manually adjustable between 50Hz – 30kHz using the MaNima Pollux Industry.
A good PCB design is necessary to be able to integrate the LED engine into an existing installation or into a new machine, but also for a long lifespan of the LED engine.
With large capacities it is necessary to keep the heat management optimal, LED engines need to be equipped with a heat sink or active cooling.
IP and IK value
How impact-resistant and waterproof a LED housing should be depends on the application. The PCB coating or the casting of the LED engine determines the IP and IK value. A very high impact resistance (IK10) and watertightness (IP68) can only be achieved by LED moulding.
Maximum efficiency can be achieved with real-time temperature monitoring of the LED engine.
