ATS Design Services Contacted for ECL’s New Recycled LED Street Light

Eco City Lights (ECL), a leading supplier of commercial and industrial LED lighting products, recently contacted ATS design services for help in solving thermal challenges on a newly developed application.

ATS performed a full thermal analysis on ECLs retro-fit solution for cobra head street lights. Services provided by ATS included simulation, validation and reporting for the heat sink, enclosure and system level applications. Experimentation was done in order to validate and optimize the current design and the thermal solution. Using IR Technology and multiple sensors throughout the fixture, LED, heat sink, and power supply, testing was performed to determine the true temperatures of the output and enclosure parameters. After numerous studies were conducted, in addition to reviewing 3D CAD models of the enclosure and application components, ATS was able to successfully analyze the existing thermal management solution for the retro-fit street light.

  1. Thanks for sharing this. I would like to add few to your list.

    1. Ecologically Friendly – LED Lighting Is Much More Eco-Friendly
    LED lights are free of toxic chemicals. Most conventional fluorescent lighting bulbs contain a multitude of materials like e.g mercury that are dangerous for the environment.

    LED lights contain no toxic materials and are 100% recyclable, and will help you to reduce your carbon footprint by up to a third. The long operational life time span mentioned above means also that one LED light bulb can save material and production of 25 incandescent light bulbs. A big step towards a greener future!

    2. Durable Quality – LED Illumination Can Withstand Rough Conditions
    LEDs are extremely durable and built with sturdy components that are highly rugged and can withstand even the roughest conditions.

    Because LED lights are resistant to shock, vibrations and external impacts, they make great outdoor lighting systems for rough conditions and exposure to weather, wind, rain or even external vandalism, traffic related public exposure and construction or manufacturing sites.

    3. Zero UV Emissions – LED Lighting Features Close to No UV Emissions
    LED illumination produces little infrared light and close to no UV emissions.

    Because of this, LED lighting is highly suitable not only for goods and materials that are sensitive to heat due to the benefit of little radiated heat emission, but also for illumination of UV sensitive objects or materials such a in museums, art galleries, archeological sites etc.

    4. Operational in Extremely Cold or Hot Temperatures
    LED are ideal for operation under cold and low outdoor temperature settings. For fluorescent lamps, low temperatures may affect operation and present a challenge, but LED illumination operates well also in cold settings, such as for outdoor winter settings, freezer rooms etc.

    5. Low-Voltage – LED Lighting Can Run on Low-Voltage Power Supply
    A low-voltage power supply is sufficient for LED illumination. This makes it easy to use LED lighting also in outdoor settings, by connecting an external solar-energy source and is a big advantage when it comes to using LED technology in remote or rural areas.
