LED long boards improve module reliability

Universal Science, the specialist designer and manufacturer of thermal management materials is now able to supply LED long boards of up to 1.2 metres in length. The key benefit of this technology is that in a typical Compact Fluorescent Tube (CFL) replacement unit it provides an enhanced level of reliability as a result of having fewer junctions and interconnects which you would have if joining several shorter boards together – saving cost at the manufacturing stage through having to use fewer materials and also eliminating potential maintenance costs related to these additional components failure.

The long boards are produced on a machine that is the only one of its kind in the UK and is capable of manufacturing 2,000 boards per day. Universal Science, who already have its thermal management materials in more street lights than any other company in the UK, is seeing a dramatic rise in the number of enquiries for LED longboards.

Ian Loader, Universal Science’s Managing Director in the UK said “following this investment we are able to offer clients a fast turnaround on LED long boards as well as providing our usual thermal management expertise as part of a complete package.”
