Hydrophobic microporus vents are a cost-effective way to protect your LED product by keeping dust and liquids out of the enclosure and relieving positive pressure or negative pressure in the enclosure.

COMMON LIGHTING APPLICATIONSexterior-leds.jpg

  • Street Lighting
  • Outdoor Architectural Luminaires
  • Automotive Taillights, Headlights 

POSSIBLE OUTCOMES FROM A POORLY VENTED LIGHT

  • Product Failures - Caused by temperature changes (caused by operation cycles and outsideurl-2.jpg environment), resulting in intrusion or condensation of moisture
  • Lens Fogging resulting in poor light output - Caused by water that has entered the luminaire
  • Compromised seals or joints around the enclosure - Caused by positive and negative pressure build-up
