SynJet Technology Helps Europe Go Green

New Stores Light Up With Cooled Down LEDs

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - November 17, 2010) - Nuventix, Inc., LED industry thermal management specialist and electronics cooling innovator, today announced it is seeing significant adoption of its SynJet technology across Europe, most notably in store installations of the region's largest retailer. SynJet LED coolers maximize lumen output and extend the life of LEDs in the stores of Carrefour's new hypermarket concept, Planet Carrefour. With SynJet, Planet Carrefour stores are bathed in bright light while using less energy.

"Carrefour is the largest retailer in Europe. It is a true testament to the advancement, acceptance and price point of LED lighting that this store has adopted its use in its Planet Carrefour hypermarkets," said Thomas Dalton, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Nuventix. "We are excited that the effectiveness and reliability of the Nuventix SynJet has made LED lighting a more viable option for large retailers."

More than 4,000 SynJet modules are in use at the two Planet Carrefour stores, cooling the brand new LED lighting fixtures produced by SUNLUX, a French lighting specialist. SynJet modules enable Carrefour to go green on two fronts as the modules use very little power and also minimize the LED fixture's metal footprint and weight by shrinking the heat sink mass by up to two thirds.

SynJet is the most effective LED thermal management solution available. By delivering targeted pulses of air directly to the LED system's heat sink, the SynJet is able to cool more effectively, allowing LED lights to run two times brighter and last longer, all while using less energy. SynJet modules are the only active cooling option that matches and exceeds the life of the LEDs themselves -- up to 100,000 hours of run time. There are no components or ball bearings to wear out and break, making SynJet durable and reliable, reducing lighting maintenance costs.
