Avnet Abacus distribution agreement with MechaTronix delivers high-power LED cooling solutions across Europe

Addition of the MechaTronix thermal management range is a major step in offering a complete lighting solution from Avnet Abacus and Silica.

Avnet Abacus, one of Europe’s leading interconnect, passive, electro-mechanical and power distributors and a business unit of Avnet Electronics Marketing EMEA, a business region of Avnet, Inc. (NYSE: AVT), has signed a pan-European distribution agreement with Taiwan-based MechaTronix, an important player in the global market for LED cooling solutions.

From its roots as a designer and manufacturer of interconnection and packaging systems for a broad range of electronics applications, MechaTronix has grown to become a preferred cooling partner to the world’s leading high-power LED manufacturers, including Bridgelux, Cree, Lumileds, Osram, Seoul and Sharp, and provides innovative thermal management products across a broad spectrum of solid-state lighting applications.

With the arrival of high-power LEDs, thermal management is now a critical factor within LED fixtures, and MechaTronix has developed a comprehensive range of off-the-shelf LED coolers for passive or active heat dissipation, including pin-fin and star heat sinks that provide highly effective cooling for LEDs as powerful as 8000 lumen.

Avnet Abacus is now stocking the MechaTronix ModuLED and IceLED cooling series, and will build on this range with new offerings from MechaTronix for professional deployment in spotlights, downlights, architectural, and utility LED applications, among others.

“The innovative production processes developed by MechaTronix have resulted in thermal management products that LED manufacturers can rely on to cool LEDs at the very highest temperatures,” said Alan Jermyn, VP Marketing Avnet Abacus. “This agreement means faster, easier access to these products for designers and manufacturers in Europe, with our local product specialists on hand to offer design support. It also fully complements the offering of our sister company, Silica and their team of lighting specialists, who can provide a complete lighting solution spanning LEDs, optics, drivers, connection and thermal management.”

“With the explosion of the high-power LED market, our cooling products are in very high demand, which means we must work with a reliable, professional distribution network to serve our customers globally,” said Koen Vangorp, General Manager MechaTronix. “In Europe, Avnet Abacus combines local market knowledge, technical know-how in the field of lighting, and a highly efficient logistics operation, which will enable us to deliver excellent customer service across the region.”
