Wakefield Wedgelock Card Retainers are used with heat frames and conduction plates to provide the necessary clamping force to ensure good thermal transfer. Wedgelocks offer the highest locking force available for cold wall applications.The retainer is mounted either directly to the PCB or to a heat frame assembly, then inserted into a machined channel of a cold wall within a rugged enclosure. When expanded, the PCB is clamped in place providing resistance to shock and vibration as well as thermal transfer.
Wakefield 882 Series Star LED Heat Sinks can be used with LEDs in star packages from Osram and other suppliers. The Wakefield 882 Series Star LED Heat Sinks offer a radial design and fin area--ideally suited for natural convection applications such as ceiling lighting--and three sets of mounting holes for maximum flexibility. A fan can also be used with the heat sinks for increased performance in forced convection applications.
