3 shows a bottom plan view of a lighting device 300 according to another embodiment of the present invention. A bottom plan view of the illumination device 300 of FIG. 3 may also be a bottom plan view of the illumination device 100 according to an embodiment of the invention of FIG.

The lighting apparatus 300 according to another embodiment of the present invention includes a light emitting module unit 310, a heat dissipation unit 320 disposed on the light emitting module unit 310, a heat dissipation unit 350 disposed on the heat dissipation unit 320, And a housing 350 that houses the fan 330, the light emitting module unit 310, the heat discharging body 320, and the heat radiating fan 330.

The light emitting module unit 310, the heat emitting body 320 and the heat dissipating fan 330 may be the same as those of the embodiment of the present invention. However, in another embodiment of the present invention, And a housing 350 for housing the heat-dissipating fan 330. The housing 350 may be divided into an upper case 150 and a lower case 160 as an embodiment of the present invention, or may be integrally formed.

A driving unit 340 is disposed inside the housing 350 to supply external power to the heat dissipating fan 330 and the light emitting module unit 310.

An air inlet 361 and an air outlet 362 may be disposed at a lower portion of the housing 350, that is, a portion facing the direction in which light is emitted from the light emitting module.

The cross-sectional area of the air inlet 361 at the bottom of the housing 350 may be designed to be larger than the cross-sectional area of the air outlet 362. As described above, this design can reduce dust entering the air inlet and increase dust leaving the air outlet. Thereby, the inflow of dust inside the illumination device can be prevented and the inflowing dust can be continuously removed, so that the good quality of the illumination device can be maintained.

Fig. 4 shows a cross-sectional view taken along line A-A in Fig.

4, an air inflow path of the illumination device 300 according to another embodiment of the present invention can be seen. The air outside the lighting apparatus 300 is moved to the space between the housing 350 and the upper portion of the heat radiating fan 330 through the air inlet 361 according to the operation of the heat radiating fan 330.

According to an embodiment of the present invention shown in FIG. 1, when the heat radiating fan 130 operates, external air may be moved to a space between the upper case 150 and the upper portion of the heat radiating fan 130.

The heat discharging body 320 may be configured to be separated from the air inflow path when the sectional view in the direction of the air inlet 361 is viewed. According to such a configuration, the air introduced from the air inlet 361 does not contact the heat discharging body 320, but keeps the room temperature and flows into the lighting apparatus. When the incoming air first comes into contact with the heat discharging body, heated air may flow into the space between the upper part of the heat radiating fan and the housing, so that the cooling of the driving unit 340 may not be effectively performed.

The injected air passes through the surface of the heat discharging body 320 and exchanges heat with the heat discharging body 320 to cool the heat emitting body 320 that has been transferred from the light emitting module unit 310.

The inside of the housing 350 of the air outlet 362 is blocked by the partition wall 351 as shown in Figure 5 so that the air heated by absorbing the heat from the heat discharging body 320 is heated by the operation of the heat radiating fan 330, And is discharged outside the lighting apparatus 300 without entering the inside of the lighting apparatus 300 again.

Fig. 6 shows a cross-sectional view taken along the line C-C in Fig.

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.

Figure 9 shows various embodiments of the air inlet and air outlet arrangement of the lighting device of the present invention.

9 (a) and 9 (b), the air inlet 361 and the air outlet 362 may be arranged in an arc shape at the rim of the lower case. 9 (a) shows a case where the air inlet 361 and the air outlet 262 arranged in the rim portion are alternately arranged. The rim portion refers to an edge portion away from the center of the lower case, and how far the air inlet 361 and the air outlet 362 are disposed from the center of the lower case can be arbitrarily determined according to the embodiment of the present invention. 9 (a) and 9 (b), the air inlet 361 and the air outlet 262 may be arranged in an arc shape concentric with the lower case of the circular shape.

9 (c), the air inlet 361 of the lower case may be disposed inside the air outlet 362, and the air inlet 361 may be located at the center of the lower case 361 as shown in FIG. 9 (d) And the air outlet 362 may be configured to be disposed at a rim portion of the lower case. The shapes of the air inlet 361 and the air outlet 362 may take various forms such as a circular shape, a polygonal shape, and the like.

When the air inlet 361 is disposed inside the air outlet 362 as shown in FIGS. 9 (c) and 9 (d), the probability that the heated air discharged through the air outlet 362 is re-introduced through the air inlet is lowered .

Further, in each embodiment, the cross-sectional area of the air inlet 361 may be designed to be larger than the cross-sectional area of the air outlet 362. Thus, the inflow of dust in the illuminator is prevented, and the inflow dust can be quickly released, so that good quality of the illuminator can be maintained.
