Pin fin Heatsinks used with COB are designed to absorb and disperse excess heat away from the COB and into the heat sink. Passive or active air then circulates around the heat sink to help cool it. Too much heat will damage COB, resulting in lower light output, changes in color and or a significant decrease in life expectancy. Unfortunately, the most common issue we see in grow lights applications from too small of a heat sink or none at all. To avoid these thermal issues, we offer a wide variety of pin fin heat sinks below, round pin fin, splayed round pin fin, square pin fin, splayed square pin fin, and we offer many color as options.
