The thermal behavior of a luminaire has a significant influence on the performance of the light source(s) and control gear/drivers it contains. Consequently, luminaire design plays a key role in maintaining the required performance of a lighting installation.

For example, effective heat dissipation will maintain optimum brightness of a discharge lamp or extend the life of an LED light source. In the latter case the heat dissipation within a luminaire is crucial to both the performance and the longevity of the LED chip.

Thermal simulations and laboratory tests performed according to standard IEC-60598-1 on luminaires have enabled Reggiani to create passive heat sinks in aluminium, units that ensure perfectly efficient, long-lasting LEDs under the standard operating conditions.

This profound understanding of the relationship between luminaire design and thermal performance, combined with over seven years of developing high output LED products, has enabled us to design and test evermore imaginative uses of LED technology.

This ability to correctly design a heat sink and effectively manage heat dissipation throughout the luminaire is demonstrated by a remarkably low failure rate, compared to industry norms.
