The air inlet 361 is arranged in the lower direction of the lighting device 300 and in the direction in which the lighting device 300 illuminates or in the direction in which light is emitted while the air outlet 362 is arranged in the outer peripheral direction of the lighting device 300 As shown in FIG. That is, it is needless to say that the air outlet 362 may be disposed outside the side surface of the illumination device 300, and the air outlet 362 may be disposed downward.

The discharged air has a higher temperature than the normal-temperature air in the warmed state, and thus has a tendency to rise. Therefore, it is possible to prevent the inflow of the heated air more effectively when the air is discharged in the vertical direction, in the horizontal direction, and in the outer peripheral direction of the lighting apparatus 300, than in the case of being discharged in the direction toward the illumination area.

Table 1 shows the simulation results of the LED temperature and the case temperature in the MR16 illuminator with the ambient temperature of 25 ° C and the applied electric power of 10W. (A) to (d) in which only the heat radiator is used and the heat radiator is used and the air inlet and the air outlet are compared.

 Compared with the case where only the heat radiator is used, the case temperature can be increased from 0.1 ° C to 28 ° C when the heat radiating fan is used together, but the LED temperature is lowered by 16 ° C to 32 ° C.

Considering that the quality characteristics and life span of the LED are affected by the temperature of the LED, the illumination device according to the embodiments of the present invention exhibits remarkably improved performance in terms of quality characteristics and lifetime compared to the conventional case using only a heat radiator.

As described in the above embodiments, the present invention can provide an illumination device having an air inlet and an air outlet, which include a heat discharger and a heat dissipating fan, and are independently arranged from each other, thereby increasing the cooling efficiency.

Further, the lighting apparatus according to the present invention may be a recessed type lighting apparatus, in which even when the lighting apparatus is embedded, heat exchange with the outside air which is disposed at a portion where the air inlet and the air outlet are both exposed, Effectively.

 The embodiment of the present invention can be used in an illumination lamp for collecting light by collecting a plurality of LEDs. In particular, the LED is embedded in a ceiling or a wall to be mounted on a structure facing the illumination area, Type illumination device.

While the present invention has been particularly shown and described with reference to exemplary embodiments thereof, it is to be understood that the invention is not limited to the disclosed exemplary embodiments, but, on the contrary, It will be understood that various modifications and applications are possible. For example, each component specifically shown in the embodiments can be modified and implemented. It is to be understood that all changes and modifications that come within the meaning and range of equivalency of the claims are therefore intended to be embraced therein.
