Description

AUSTRALIA Regulation 3.2 Patents Act 1990 Complete Specification Standard Patent DIVISIONAL APPLICANT: LSI Industries, Inc. Invention Title: LIGHTING APPARATUS WITH HEAT DISSIPATION SYSTEM The following statement is a full description of this invention, including the best method of performing it known to me: LIGHTING APPARATUS WITH HEAT DISSIPATION SYSTEM FIELD OF THE DISCLOSURE [00011 The present disclosure relates generally to a lighting apparatus. More specifically, the disclosure relates to various structures facilitating heat dissipation in a lighting apparatus. BACKGROUND OF THE DISCLOSURE [0002] When designing and implementing lighting apparatuses, generation of heat is one of many factors to be contemplated. In lighting apparatuses, light sources can create heat which may not be desirable to the functionality of the apparatus. Excess heat may result in melting of components, malfunctioning of proximate devices, or otherwise undesirable results. Also, excessive heat may diminish the efficiency or the lifespan of components within a lighting apparatus. Correspondingly, cooler operating temperatures may increase effectiveness of components within a lighting apparatus. [0003] Heat can be transferred in three ways: convection, conduction, and radiation. These three methods of heat transfer can be harnessed to transfer heat away from a lighting apparatus, if the existence of such heat is undesirable. SUMMARY OF THE DISCLOSURE 10004] In one aspect, the disclosure presents a lighting apparatus that can include a light source, a plate, and a frame. The light source can include one or more lighting elements. The plate can be in thermal communication with the light source and have a dissipative portion that extends outward from the point of thermal communication between the plate and the light source. The frame can at least partially enclose the light source. The frame can also be in thermal communication with one of the plate or the light source and have a footprint that fits substantially within the plate. 10005] In various embodiments, a lighting element can be a light emitting diode mounted on a printed circuit board. The lighting apparatus can also include a housing in communication with a portion of the plate. The housing can create a volume that houses the plate and the light source. [00061 In one embodiment, the plate and frame are constructed of sheet metal. The plate can be in direct contact with a surface of the light source. In another embodiment, the lighting apparatus includes a lens that covers at least a portion of the light source. [0007] In another aspect, the disclosure presents a lighting apparatus having a light source, a plate and a frame. The light source can include one or more lighting elements. The plate can have a dissipative portion defining an outermost perimeter of the plate. The frame can at least partially enclose the light source. The frame can be in thermal communication with at least one of the plate or the light source. The frame can also have an outer perimeter substantially within the outermost perimeter of the plate. The dissipative portion extends away from the point of thermal communication with the frame.

[00081 In another aspect, the lighting apparatus includes a light source, a plate, and frame. The light source can include one or more lighting elements. The plate can have a dissipative portion extending outward from a point of thermal communication between the plate and the light source. The frame can at least partially enclose the light source and may also be in thermal communication therewith.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE DISCLOSURE [0019] The present disclosure describes a heat dissipation system for use in lighting apparatuses. Aspects and embodiments of the present disclosure provide lighting apparatuses and heat dissipation systems for those apparatuses. By placing lighting elements and other heat producing sources in thermal communication with heat conductive materials, heat can be transferred away from lighting elements and surrounding structure to other areas of the light apparatus, including the heat dissipation system which facilitates a high rate of heat dissipation. Further, the surface area, location, and orientation of the heat dissipating materials, quickly and efficiently dissipate heat. Strategic location of the heat dissipation system components facilitates efficient radiation as well as convection. [0020] Referring now to Figures 1-3A, an embodiment of a lighting apparatus 10 is shown and described. The lighting apparatus 10 includes a frame 14, a plate 18, a housing 22, a light source 26, a fixing mechanism 30, and a lens 34. The light source 26 includes a plurality of lighting elements 38. The light source 26 is in thermal communication, as defined below, with the plate 18. The frame 14, which, as shown, partially encloses the light source, is in thermal communication with the plate 18 and the lens 34. The housing 22 is in thermal communication with the plate 18. The fixing mechanism 30 is attached to the housing 22 and facilitates mounting of the lighting apparatus in a desired location. [0021] In one embodiment, the frame 14 is roughly square in shape and partially encloses the light source 14 on four sides. The frame 14 in conjunction with the plate 18 and the lens 34 encloses the light source 26 on all sides, with necessary access for wiring, attachment mechanisms, and the like. The frame 14, in various embodiments, can also have a different shape. One example of a frame with a different shape is shown with reference to Figure 4. Depending on the application, other examples of the shape of the frame 14 include, but are not limited to, rectangular, circular, or other shape that permits partial enclosure of the light source 26. The frame 14 is in thermal communication with at least one of the plate 18, the light source 26, or both. The frame 14 is also in thermal communication with the lens 34. In various embodiments, the heat dissipation system of the present disclosure can be, but is not necessarily, practiced without a lens 34. The frame 14 shown in Figure 3A is wider at its thermal communication with the plate 18, which defines an outer perimeter, than it is at the thermal communication with the lens 34, which defines a lens perimeter. This change in width creates an inwardly sloped portion 16 of the frame 14. In other embodiments, the frame 14 can have an outwardly sloped portion, a perpendicular extension from the plate 18 with no slope, or other protrusion. [0022] In one embodiment, the light source 26 comprises at least one lighting element 38. Possible lighting elements 38 include incandescent light bulbs, fluorescent lights, light emitting diodes (LEDs), organic LEDs (OLEDs), and other commercially or non-commercially available light emanating components. [0023] In one embodiment, LEDs are fabricated or mounted onto a printed circuit board (PCB). The LEDs can be of any kind, color (i.e. emitting any color or white light or mixture of colors and white light as the intended lighting arrangement requires) and luminance capacity or intensity, preferably in the visible spectrum. One or more PCBs are in thermal communication with the plate 18. The lighting elements 38 on the PCB emanate light that radiates through the lens 34. In one embodiment, the lighting apparatus can be used with Nichia NSW6-083x and/or Osram LUW W5AM xxxx xxxx LEDs. [0024] In an alternative embodiment, the present disclosure relates to a lighting apparatus having a light source 26, a plurality of light elements 38, and a plurality of reflectors 39, as described in co-pending US provisional patent application 60/980,562, filed October 17, 2007 incorporated herein by reference in its entirety. [0025] The plate 18 can be roughly square in shape and can be substantially flat in the area in thermal communication with the housing 22. The plate 18, in various embodiments, can be in thermal communication with the one of the frame 14 or light source 26. The thermal communication between the plate 18 and the frame 14 can, in another embodiment, occur via the light source 26. The plate 18 can also have a different shape. For example, depending on the application, the shape of the plate 18 can be, but is not limited to being, rectangular, circular, or other shape. Furthermore, the plate 18 can also have vertical shape, instead of being substantially flat. For example, the plate 18 can be, but is not limited to being, curved, s-shaped, or otherwise bent. The plate 18 has an outermost perimeter, which is the perimeter of the plate 18 in a plane parallel to the light source 26, lens 34, or frame 14 and at its outermost position. As shown, the outermost perimeter of the plate is the widest perimeter of the point of thermal communication between the plate 18 and the housing 22. In an alternate embodiment, the plate 18 has a base 43 that is substantially the same size as its point of contact with the housing 22, and, at the outer perimeter of the frame, a dissipative portion of the plate 18 protrudes away from the housing 22 and extends to be substantially parallel to the inwardly sloped portion 16 of the frame 14. As is described below, this parallel protrusion permits for an angling of the heat dissipation surface towards cooler areas. Alternatively, the plate base 43 and the protruding dissipative portion 46 of the plate 18 can be two separate pieces in thermal communication. The frame 14 has an outer footprint perimeter located at the thermal communication between the frame 14 and the plate 18. The outer footprint perimeter is substantially within the outermost perimeter defined by the plate 18. Alternatively, the frame 14 outer footprint perimeter, in various embodiments, can be, but is not limited to being, partially outside the outermost perimeter of the plate 18. [0026] In the embodiment shown in Figures 1-3A, the housing 22 is in thermal communication with the plate 18 and the fixing mechanism 30. At the point of thermal communication with the plate 18, the housing 22 is roughly in the shape of a square. The housing 22, in various alternative embodiments, can take different shapes at the point of thermal communication with the plate 18. For example, the shape can be, but is not limited to, rectangular, circular, or other shape. [0027] The fixing mechanism 30 facilitates mounting and positioning the light source 26. The fixing mechanism 30 is configured to house necessary electrical wiring for operation of the lighting apparatus 10, such as power wires. The fixing mechanism, for example, can transport wiring to the housing 22 so as to cover and/or contain components such as a power supply, regulator, driver circuits or other desired components/circuits to operate the light apparatus. In one embodiment, the fixing mechanism 30 is a pipe. [0028] The fixing mechanism 30, in various embodiments, can take any shape, size, or form. Further, in various embodiments, the fixing mechanism 30 can be constructed using different materials, such as, but not limited to, plastic, metal, or rubber. In such embodiments, the fixing mechanism may or may not dissipate heat through cooperation with the other components of the lighting apparatus 10. Furthermore, the fixing mechanism 30 can be in releasably affixed to the housing 22. Alternatively, the fixing mechanism 30 can be merged to be one single contiguous piece with the housing 22. The fixing mechanism 30 can have an axis, and that axis running perpendicular to the plate 18, as shown in Figures 1-3A, or, alternatively, parallel to the plate 18, as shown in Figure 4. [00291 In various embodiments of the present disclosure, one or more components of the lighting apparatus 10 in communication with each other can be releasably connected. For example, the plate 18 base in communication with the housing may be a piece separate from the protrusion of the plate 46 away from the housing 22. In another example, the frame 14 can be manufactured to be one single contiguous piece with the plate 18. Similarly, the plate 18 can be one single contiguous piece with the housing 22. Various other combinations of separating components and merging components are also contemplated. [00301 As shown, the shape of the housing 22 is roughly a square-bottomed (as shown in Figure 1) dome with a flattened top. In various embodiments, the housing can take many shapes. For example, the shape of the housing 22 can be, but is not limited to being, a circular dome, a cone, a cube, or other shape. [0031] As shown in Figures 3 and 3A, the thermal communication between the frame 14 and the plate 18 occurs via direct contact resulting from mounting the frame 14 and the plate 18 at contact 40. This direct contact 40 facilitates thermal communication between the plate 18 and the housing 22. Thermal communication between the housing 22 and the fixing mechanism 30 also occurs via direct contact 41. In various embodiments, the thermal communication can take other forms. For example, the thermal communication between any pair of components can be, but is not limited to the inclusion of, a rubber gasket, an adhesive, polyurethane, or other material between the various components of the lighting apparatus 10. For example, a gasket can be, but is not limited to, a SikaTack-Ultrafast polyurethane gasket manufactured by Sika Corporation. The materials of each of the components may have the same heat transfer characteristics. Alternatively, different materials can be used having varying thermal transfer properties and thus transfer more or less heat. [0032] Also, in various embodiments, the surface areas of the various components can be increased to effect the thermal transfer properties. For example, the housing 22 can be dimpled. Also, "fins" (not shown) can be added to one or more of the components. The fins can be protrusions extending in various directions from the respective components. [00331 The thermal transfer during operation of the lighting apparatus 10 is now discussed. The light source 26 produces heat. This heat is transferred from the light source 26 to the plate 18. This transfer can occur via conduction, convection or radiation depending on the mode of thermal communication between the plate 18 and the light source 26. In one embodiment, this heat is produced by light elements 38, such as, but not limited to, LEDs and, correspondingly, the PCB, driver, power regulator, and components of the light apparatus. In such an embodiment, the heat from the LEDs is transferred via a PCB, or other element on which the LEDs are mounted, to the plate 18. The heat transmits through the plate 18 to several points. Heat is carried to the frame primarily by conduction at direct contact 40. Heat also transmits through the plate 18 to the dissipative portion 46 of the plate 18. As shown in Figures 3 and 3A, this dissipative portion 46 is substantially parallel to the inward slope 16 of the frame 14. Alternatively, the dissipative portion 46 can be substantially parallel to a plane defined by the lens 34, as shown in Figure 7 and 7A. In one embodiment, the dissipative portion of the plate 46 and the plate 18 can be separate, non contiguous pieces. Heat is also carried through the plate 18 to the housing 22 by conduction at contact 40. However, in other embodiments, the heat is transferred by convection or radiation to the housing. In turn, heat is carried through the housing 22 to the fixing mechanism 30 at the point of contact 41. In various embodiments, more points of thermal communication can be added to increase heat dissipation. For example, an embodiment can have, but is not limited to having, another dissipative portion in thermal communication with the plate. Once this heat has been carried to other parts of the heat dissipation system of the lighting apparatus 10, the heat is transferred to the surrounding environment of the lighting apparatus 10 through convection and/or radiation. [0034] The present disclosure contemplates varying the angle of the dissipative portion 46 to control direction of heat radiation. As shown in Figures 3 and 3A, the dissipative portion 46 can be substantially parallel to an inward slope 16 of the frame 14. In this configuration, the outside surface of the dissipative portion 46 radiates heat downward and away from the light source. Because hot air rises, and correspondingly cooler air is presumably below the light when illuminating downward, placing the outside surface of the dissipative portion at a downward angle ensures that it is in contact with cool surroundings and directing radiation toward cooler locations. Because greater radiation occurs with greater temperature differential, it is desirable to place the outer surface of the dissipative portion 46 in a manner to maximize this differential. In alternative embodiments, the dissipative portion 46 can be placed at varying angles so as to take advantage of the particular surroundings and to maximize this temperature differential, as will be contemplated by one skilled in the art. [0035] Referring now to Figure 4, another embodiment of a lighting apparatus 10' is shown and described. In this embodiment, the lighting apparatus 10' includes a frame 14', a plate 18', a housing 22', a light source 26', a fixing mechanism 30', a lens 34', and a light element 38'. The frame 14' and plate 18' have a rectangular form. In various embodiments, the frame 14' and plate 18' can take any shape, as described above. The fixing mechanism 30' has an axis that is parallel to the plate 18'. As described above, the materials and configuration of the various components can vary, thus all the possible combination are not repeated. 10036] Referring now to Figure 5, a cross-sectional view of the lighting apparatus 10' of Figure 4 is shown and described. The lighting apparatus 10' includes a frame 14', a plate 18', a light source 26', a light element 38', a housing 22', a PCB 42', a lens 34', and an offset gap 50. As shown, this embodiment differs from the lighting apparatus 10 of Figure 1 by the inclusion of the offset gap 50 formed by the frame 14 rather than the plate 18. This offset gap 50 allows for, in various embodiments, a gasket, an adhesive, a polyurethane, or other material to cooperate to form thermal communication between the various components. With this offset gap 50 and point of contact 40', the shown embodiment permits the use of, but is not limited to, a gasket or other sealant to seal against, for example, moisture ingress, while also preserving direct contact 40' between the frame 14' and the plate 18'. 100371 Referring now to Figure 6, another embodiment of a lighting apparatus 10" is shown and described. The lighting apparatus 10" includes a frame 14", a plate 18", a light source 26" including a plurality of light elements 38", and a lens 34". The frame 14" is in thermal communication with the light source 26" and with the plate 18". The plate 18" is in thermal communication with the light source 26" via the frame 14". [00381 Referring now to Figure 7, a cross-sectional view of the lighting apparatus 10" of Figure 6 is shown and described. The frame 14" is in thermal communication with the plate 18" and the housing 22". The frame 14" has a point of contact 60 with the plate 18". The thermal communication is achieved by the gravitational pull of the frame 14" onto the plate 18", but may be augmented in other manners such as, by way of example only, screws, latches, fasteners, adhesives, springs, clips, or other mechanisms. In this embodiment, the inward slope 16" of the frame 14" shares a point of contact with a sloped portion of plate 18". In such a configuration, heat can be transferred from the light source 26" to the frame 14" through conduction. The heat can also be transferred from the frame 14" to the housing 22" and the plate 18" through conduction. Using convection and radiation, heat can be transferred to the environment surrounding the lighting apparatus 10" through the frame 14", housing 22", a dissipating portion 46" of the plate 18", and through other materials in thermal communication with the light source 26". Radiation is also directed downward from the dissipating portion 46" of plate 18". [00391 Although various embodiments are shown and described above, it should be understood other various modifications can also be made. For example, the materials used to construct the thermal conductive elements of the lighting apparatus can be constructed of sheet metal. In other embodiments, other materials such as gold, silver, aluminum, stainless steel, or other materials can be used. For example, ASTM: Aluminum 3003 H14 can be used. Of course, various combinations of one or more materials can also be used. Also, although most of the components are shown as being relatively smooth, it should be understood that they can be textured, contoured, undulated, painted, or otherwise non-flat or otherwise modified to increase or decrease their thermal transfer properties. Also, in various embodiments of the present disclosure, the plate 18,18',18" or the dissipative portion of the plate 46,46',46" is at least partially observable by an ordinary observer of the light in its normal operation. In one embodiment, an observer whose view is perpendicular to the plane created by the lens 34, frame 14, or plate 18 can observe, in plain view, at least a portion of the plate 18,18',18" or a dissipative portion of the plate 46,46',46". [0040] While the disclosure makes reference to the details of preferred embodiments, it is to be understood that the disclosure is intended in an illustrative rather than in a limiting sense, as it is contemplated that modifications will readily occur to those skilled in the art, within the spirit of the disclosure and the scope of the appended claims.
