BACKGROUND

1. Field

The inventions relates to a lighting device.

2. Background

A light emitting diode (LED) is an energy device for converting electric energy into light energy. Compared with an electric bulb, the LED has higher conversion efficiency, lower power consumption and a longer life span. As there advantages are widely known, more and more attentions are now paid to a lighting apparatus using the LED.

The lighting apparatus using the LED are generally classified into a direct lighting apparatus and an indirect lighting apparatus. The direct lighting apparatus emits light emitted from the LED without changing the path of the light. The indirect lighting apparatus emits light emitted from the LED by changing the path of the light through reflecting means and so on. Compared with the direct lighting apparatus, the indirect lighting apparatus mitigates to some degree the intensified light emitted from the LED and protects the eyes of users.

Therefore, workability can be enhanced.

The thickness of the cover 100 may have a value within a range between 1 mm and 2 mm.

The cover 100 may be made of a light diffusing polycarbonate (PC) for the purpose of prevent a user from feeling glare caused by the light emitted from the light source module 200. Further, the cover 100 may be made of any one of glass, plastic, polypropylene (PP) and polyethylene (PE).

The inner surface of the cover 100 may be anti-corrosion treated. Moreover, a predetermined pattern may be applied to the outer surface of the cover 100. With this feature the light emitted from the light source module 200 can be scattered. Accordingly, the user is able to avoid the glare.

The cover 100 may be manufactured by a blow molding process for the sake of uniform light distribution of omni-directional light. In the blow molding process, the diameter of the opening 130 of the cover 100 may be from 3 mm to 20 mm.

Embossing pattern may be formed on the surface of the cover 100. Preferably, the embossing pattern may be formed on the surface of the cover 100 close to the partial opening 130. This structure can improve the scatter of light.

In a modified embodiment, the cover 100 may include a plurality of protrusions (un-drawn). The heat sink 400 may have a plurality of recesses whose position corresponding to those of the plurality of protrusions of the cover 100. The plurality of protrusions may be shaped suitable to be inserted and locked into the plurality of recesses of the heat sink 400. For example, the tips of the protrusions may be trapezoidal so that the protrusions can be locked in the recesses of the heat sink 400. Due to the structure, workability can be enhanced.

<Light Source Module 200>

The light source module 200 emits a predetermined light.

A plurality of the light source modules 200 may be provided. Specifically, the light source module 200 may include a first light source module 200a, a second light source module 200b and a third light source module 200c.

The first to the third light source modules 200a, 200b and 200c may respectively include a substrate 210a and a light emitting device 230a disposed on the substrate 210a.

The substrate 210a may be formed by printing a circuit pattern on an insulator. For example, the substrate 210a may include a general printed circuit board (PCB), a metal core PCB, a flexible PCB, a ceramic PCB and the like. The surface of the substrate 210a may be formed of a material capable of efficiently reflecting light. The surface of the substrate 210a may be coated with a color capable of efficiently reflecting light, for example, white, silver and the like.

A predetermined hole 215a may be formed in the center of the substrate 210a. The hole 215a may be a reference point for arranging the light emitting devices 230a. A screw may be inserted into the hole 215a in order to fix the substrate 210a to the heat sink 400. The screw can serve as a thermal path, so the heat transfer from the substrate 210a to the heat sink 400 can improve.

At least one light emitting device 230a may be disposed on one side of the substrate 210a. In FIG. 3, a plurality of the light emitting devices 230a may be disposed on one side of the substrate 210a. The light emitting device 230a may be a light emitting diode chip emitting red, green and blue light or a light emitting diode chip emitting ultraviolet light. Here, the light emitting diode chip may have a lateral type or a vertical type and may emit blue, red, yellow or green light.

A lens may be disposed on the light emitting device 230a. The lens is disposed to cover the light emitting device 230a. The lens is able to adjust an emission angle or a direction of light emitted from the light emitting device 230a. The lens may be a hemispherical shape and may be made of a light transmitting resin like silicone resin or epoxy resin without an empty space. The light transmitting resin may wholly or partially include a distributed fluorescent material.

When the light emitting device 230a is a blue light emitting diode, the fluorescent material included in the light transmitting resin may include at least one selected from a group consisting of a garnet material (YAG, TAG), a silicate material, a nitride material and an oxynitride material.

Though natural light (white light) can be created by allowing the light transmitting resin to include only yellow fluorescent material, the light transmitting resin may further include a green fluorescent material or a red fluorescent material in order to improve a color rendering index and to reduce a color temperature.

When the light transmitting resin is mixed with many kinds of fluorescent materials, an addition ratio of the color of the fluorescent material may be formed such that the green fluorescent material is more used than the red fluorescent material, and the yellow fluorescent material is more used than the green fluorescent material. The garnet material, the silicate material and the oxynitride material may be used as the yellow fluorescent material. The silicate material and the oxynitride material may be used as the green fluorescent material. The nitride material may be used as the red fluorescent material. The light transmitting resin may be mixed with various kinds of the fluorescent materials or may be configured by a layer including the red fluorescent material, a layer including the green fluorescent material and a layer including the yellow fluorescent material, which are formed separately from each other.

The light source module 200 may include a terminal plate 250. The first to the third light source modules 200a, 200b and 200c may be electrically connected to each other by means of the terminal plate 250. For example, the first to the third light source modules 200a, 200b and 200c may be electrically connected in series to each other through use of the two terminal plates 250.

The terminal plate 250 may be made of a conductive metallic material. For instance, the terminal plate 250 may be made by using any one of copper, nickel and zinc plating or the compound comprising at least two selected from copper, nickel and zinc plating. For the purpose of manufacturing the light source module 200, the terminal plate 250 may be made of a metallic material which is easily bent. By using the terminal plate 250, the workability for installing the light source module 200 in the heat sink 400 can be improved and the light source modules are more stably connected to each other than they are connected by using a wire.

Preferably, the thickness of the terminal plate 250 may be from 0.1 mm to 0.5 mm. If the thickness is less than 0.1 mm, the terminal plate 250 would be easily snapped in the manufacturing process or by an external shock. If the thickness is more than 0.5 mm, the terminal plate 250 can be difficult to bend.

The light source module 200 is disposed in the heat sink 400. Specifically, the substrates 210a of the first to the third light source modules 200a, 200b and 200c may be disposed on an outer lateral surface 411 of a member 410 of the heat sink 400. The laterally arranged light source modules 200a, 200b, and 200c can improve the performance of omni-directional light by scattering the light uniformly throughout the cover 100.

<Reflector 300>

The reflector 300 is coupled to the heat sink 400. Specifically, the reflector 300 may be coupled to the member 410 of the heat sink 400.

The reflector 300 has a shape corresponding to that of the member 410 of the heat sink 400. Also, the reflector 300 may have a shape covering the member 410 of the heat sink 400. Specifically, the reflector 300 may include an upper portion 310 and a lower portion 330. The upper portion 310 is disposed on the top surface of the member 410 of the heat sink 400. The lower portion 330 is disposed on the lateral surface of the member 410 of the heat sink 400. In other words, the lower portion 330 may extend from the periphery of the upper portion 310 along the lateral surface of the member 410. The upper portion 310 may be substantially perpendicular to the lower portion 330.

The upper portion 310 of the reflector 300 may include a flat surface or a surface convex toward the cover 100. When the upper portion 310 of the reflector 300 includes the convex surface, there is an advantage of reducing dark portions which may be generated in the uppermost portion of the cover 100.

The reflector 300 may have a coupling means suitable to be coupled to the heat sink 400, and the heat sink 400 may have a corresponding coupling means. For example, the upper portion 310 of the reflector 300 may have at least one hole 371, and the top surface of the member 410 of the heat sink 400 may have at least one hole 471 at the corresponding position of the holes of the upper portion 310 of the reflector 300. Both holes can be fastened by a fastening means, such as screw. But, the coupling means of the reflector 300 and the heat sink 400 is not limited thereto.

The minimum distance from the upper portion 310 of the reflector 300 to the uppermost portion of the cover 100 may be equal to or greater than 15 mm. If the distance from the upper portion 310 of the reflector 300 to the inner surface of the cover 100 is less than and not equal to 15 mm, the dark portion may be generated in the uppermost portion of the cover 100. When the minimum distance from the upper portion 310 of the reflector 300 to the inner surface of the cover 100 is equal to or greater than 15 mm, the dark portion can be remarkably reduced and density of the dark portion can be more reduced.

The reflector 300 may have a disposition recess 335. The disposition recess 335 may be formed in the lower portion 330 of the reflector 300. The light source module 200 disposed in the member 410 of the heat sink 400 may be disposed in the disposition recess 335. Specifically, the substrate 210a of the light source module 200 may be disposed in the disposition recess 335. While the reflector 300 is disposed on the member 410 of the heat sink 400, the disposition recess 335 prevents the reflector 300 from being disposed on the light source module 200.

The reflector 300 may be made of white polycarbonate (PC) which easily reflects the light emitted from the light source module 200 and has thermal resistance. The reflector 300 is able to raise light-extraction efficiency of the lighting device according to the embodiment.

The reflector 300 may be made of a material having electrical insulation. The reflector 300 may be disposed between the member 410 of the heat sink 400 and the terminal plate 250 of the light source module 200. Such a reflector 400 is able to block electrical contact between the terminal plate 250 and the heat sink 400.

A surface treatment process is performed on the surface of the reflector 300, so that the light from the light source module 200 is scattered and a user is able to avoid the glare.

The side surfaces of the substrates 210a of the light source module 200a may be arranged in parallel to the inner side of the disposition recess 335. At least one side surfaces of the substrates 210a may contact with the inner side of the disposition recess 335 when they are assembled.

The lower portion 330 of the reflector 300 may have a guide 381 through which the light source modules 200 are provided electric power from the power supply 600. The guide 381 may be a recess extended from the disposition recess 335 of the reflector 300. Alternatively, the guide 381 may be a hole formed on the surface between the disposition recess 335 and the upper portion 310 of the reflector 300.

<Heat Sink 400>

The light source module 200 is disposed on the heat sink 400. The heat sink 400 receives heat from the light source module 200 and radiates the heat. The heat sink 400 is coupled to the cover 100 and receives the power supply 600 and the housing 500.

FIG. 7 is a cross sectional view of the heat sink alone shown in FIG. 2.

Referring to FIGS. 1 to 7, the heat sink 400 may include the member 410, a base 430 and a heat radiating fin 450.

The member 410 may extend upward from the upper portion of the base 430. The member 410 may be integrally formed with the base 430 or may be formed separately from the base 430 and bonded or coupled to the base 430.

The member 410 may have a cylindrical shape. The light source module 200 is disposed on the outer surface of the cylindrical member 410.

The member 410 has the lateral surface 411 on which the light source module 200 is disposed. The member 410 has the lateral surface 411 of which the number is the same as the number of the light source modules 200. For example, the member 410 may have three lateral surfaces 411 on which the first to the third light source modules 200a, 200b and 200c are disposed respectively. The three lateral surfaces 411 may come in surface contact with the bottom surfaces of the substrates 210a of the first to the third light source modules 200a, 200b and 200c. For this purpose, the three lateral surfaces 411 may be flat. However, there is no limit to this. The three lateral surfaces 411 may be curved. In this case, the substrates 210a may be flexible substrates.

The lateral surface 411 may be, as shown in FIG. 7, substantially parallel with a central axis “X” of the lighting device according to the embodiment. Here, an angle between the lateral surface 411 and the central axis “X” may be from 0.3 degree to 3 degree. If the angle between the lateral surface 411 and the central axis “X” is from 0 degree to 0.3 degree, front light distribution characteristic is deteriorated. That is to say, a dark spot may be generated at the topmost portion of the cover 100. If the angle between the lateral surface 411 and the central axis “X” is greater than 3 degree, omni-directional distribution characteristic is deteriorated.

The area of the lateral surface 411 is, as shown in FIG. 6, greater than that of the bottom surface of the substrate 210a and is disposed to lean on the lower portion of the lateral surface 411 instead of the central portion of the lateral surface 411. Therefore, the substrate 210a is not disposed on the upper portion of the lateral surface 411. When the lateral surface 411 includes a portion on which the substrate 210a is not disposed, heat generated from the light source module 200 is transferred from the member 410 not only to the base 430 but also the upper portion of the member 410. Accordingly, the temperature of the light source module 200 can be rapidly reduced. As a result, it is possible to improve heat radiation performance of the lighting device according to the embodiment.

Here, a distance “a” from the uppermost portion of the lateral surface 411 to the uppermost portion of the substrate 210a may be from 3 mm to 5 mm. If the distance “a” is less than 3 mm, remarkable heat radiation effect is not obtained. If the distance “a” is greater than 5 mm, the dark portion generated in the uppermost portion of the cover 100 becomes thicker.

The thickness of the member 410 may be from 2.5 mm to 5 mm. If the thickness of the member 410 is less than 2.5 mm, heat radiation performance is degraded. If the thickness of the member 410 is greater than 5 mm, the material cost of the heat sink 400 is increased and an interior space for receiving the power supply 600 is reduced.

The member 410 may include an extension part 413. The extension part 413 may extend from the uppermost portion of the member 410 toward a receiver 470. Since the heat generated from the light source module 200 may be transferred more to the upper portion of the member 410 by the extension part 413 and the heat transferred to the extension part 413 can cause heat convection in the receiver 470, the temperature of the light source module 200 can be rapidly reduced. Therefore, it is possible to improve heat radiation performance of the lighting device according to the embodiment. Here, the length of the extension part 413 may be from 10 mm to 20 mm on the basis of the lateral surface 411. The extension part 413 having a length less than 10 mm has no great influence on heat radiation performance improvement. The extension part 413 having a length greater than 20 mm does not allow the power supply 600 and the light source module 200 to be easily connected to each other.

In a modified embodiment, the extension part 413 may be formed separately from the uppermost portion of the member 410 and bonded or coupled to the uppermost portion of the member 410.

The base 430 is disposed under the member 410. The base 430 and the member 410 may be integrally formed with each other.

A plurality of the heat radiating fins 450 may be disposed on the outer surface of the base 430. The plurality of the heat radiating fins 450 may project outward from the outer surface of the base 430. The base 430 and the plurality of the heat radiating fins 450 may be integrally formed with each other or may be formed separately from each other and coupled to each other.

The heat radiating fin 450 may have an upper portion and a lower portion. The width of the upper portion of the heat radiating fin 450 increases with the approach to the lower portion of the base 430 from the upper portion of the base 430. The width of the upper portion can be defined, for example, as the distance from a point of the heat radiating fin 450 located near the receiver 470 to a point on the outer periphery of the hear radiating fin 450 where the hypothetical line connecting the two points is substantially perpendicular to the outer surface of the base 430. When the width of the upper portion of the heat radiating fin 450 increases with the approach to the lower portion of the base 430 from the upper portion of the base 430, the omni-directional distribution characteristic of the lighting device according to the embodiment can be enhanced. This is because the light emitted from the light source module 200 is not blocked by the upper portion of the heat radiating fin 450. This will be described in more detail with reference to FIG. 6. To describe the structure in a different way, each of the heat radiating fin 450 has a triangular shape where first vertex of the triangle is located near one portion of the body close to the member 410, second vertex of the triangle is located near the opposite portion of the body close to the housing 550, and the third vertex of the triangle protrudes outward from the receiver 470.

Referring to FIG. 6, the upper portion of the heat radiating fin 450 may be formed in consideration of the light emitted from the light source module 200a. Specifically, the upper portion of the heat radiating fin 450 may be formed in consideration of a light distribution area “L” of the light emitted from the light source module 200a. In other words, the upper portion of the heat radiating fin 450 may be disposed under the light distribution area “L” of the light source module 200a, or the upper portion of the heat radiating fin 450 may be disposed in such a manner as not to be overlapped with the light distribution area “L” of the light source module 200a.

The emission angle of the light source module 200b and the upper portion of the heat sink 400 may have the following relation. On the basis of a vertical axis “G” passing through the center of a light emitting device 230b, the maximum emission angle “Z” of the light emitting device 230b may be defined by an angle between the vertical axis “G” and a tangent line “C” passing through both the center of the light emitting device 230b and a contact point of the upper portion of the heat radiating fin 450. When the maximum emission angle “Z” of the light emitting device 230b is defined in this manner, the omni-directional light distribution characteristic of the lighting device according to the embodiment can be enhanced. Here, the maximum emission angle “Z” may be from 50 degree to 80 degree. If the maximum emission angle “Z” is less than 50 degree, omni-directional light distribution meeting a standard specification cannot be obtained. If the maximum emission angle “Z” is greater than 80 degree, it is not possible to obtain a sufficient area for radiating the heat.

In the definition of the maximum emission angle “Z” of the light emitting device 230b, the vertical axis “G” may pass through the center of a substrate 210b instead of the center of the light emitting device 230b. In other words, the vertical axis “G” may pass through a hole 215b of the substrate 210b.

FIG. 8 is a plan view of the heat sink 400 shown in FIG. 2.

Referring to FIG. 8, the heat radiating fin 450 may project perpendicularly to the outer surface of the base 430.

The heat radiating fin 450 may become thinner from the outer surface of the base 430 to the outside. The thickness of the heat radiating fin 450 may be from 0.8 mm to 3.0 mm. If the thickness of the heat radiating fin 450 is less than 0.8 mm, the heat radiating fin 450 is difficult to be formed and an expected heat radiation effect cannot be obtained. If the thickness of the heat radiating fin 450 is larger than 3.0 mm, an interval between two adjacent heat radiating fins is reduced, so that when the heat sink 400 is powder-coated, a desired coating process cannot be performed between the two adjacent heat radiating fins.

The plurality of the heat radiating fins 450 may be separated from each other at a predetermined interval. Here, an interval between the outermost ends of the two heat radiating fins 450 may be from 6 mm to 7 mm, and an interval between the innermost ends of the two heat radiating fins 450 may be from 4 mm to 6 mm. When the interval between the outermost ends of the heat radiating fins 450 is different from the interval between the innermost ends of the heat radiating fins 450, heat radiation performance can be improved and a powder coating process can be performed with ease to the innermost end of the heat radiating fin 450.

The heat sink 400 has a receiver 470 for receiving the housing 500 thereinside. The receiver 470 may be a through-hole passing through the member 410 and the base 430 of the heat sink 400. The through-hole 470 may be defined by a portion surrounded by the member 410 and a portion surrounded by the base 430. The upper portion of the through-hole 470 is surrounded by the member 410. The lower portion of the through-hole 470 is surrounded by the base 430. The shape of the upper portion of the through-hole 470 is different from the shape of the lower portion of the through-hole 470. Specifically, the upper portion of the through-hole 470 may have a volume less than that of the lower portion of the through-hole 470. When the volume of the upper portion of the through-hole 470 is less than that of the lower portion of the through-hole 470, even after the housing 500 is received in the through-hole 470 of the heat sink 400, the housing 500 cannot fall into the upper portion of the through-hole 470, which is surrounded by the member 410. Moreover, there is an advantage of improving the assemblability of the lighting device according to the embodiment.

The heat sink 400 may be formed of a metallic material or a resin material which has excellent heat radiation efficiency. The heat sink 400 may be formed of a material having high thermal conductivity (generally, greater than 150 Wm−1K−1, and more preferably, greater than 200 Wm−1K−1), for example, copper (thermal conductivity of about 400 Wm−1K 1), aluminum (thermal conductivity of about 250 Wm−1K−1), anodized aluminum, aluminum alloy and magnesium alloy. Also, the heat sink 400 may be formed of a metal loaded plastic material like polymer, for example, epoxy or thermally conductive ceramic material (e.g., aluminum silicon carbide (AlSiC) (thermal conductivity of about 170 to 200 Wm−1K).

In a modified embodiment, at least one heat radiating fin 450 may have a different measure from other heat radiating fin 450. Particularly, the heat radiating fin 450 having different measure may have an additional area protruding toward the cover 100. The additional area is shaped such that the cover 100 can be coupled to the heat sink 400. Preferably, the number of the at least one heat radiating fin 450 may be three, and the three heat radiating fin 450 may be uniformly arranged on the circumference of the heat sink 400. In other words, the distance between each of the three heat radiating fin 450 may be approximately identical.

<Housing 500>

FIG. 9 is a perspective view of the housing alone shown in FIG. 2.

Referring to FIGS. 1 to 9, the housing 500 is disposed within the heat sink 400. Specifically, the housing 500 may be disposed in the receiver 470 of the heat sink 400.

The housing 500 has an appearance corresponding to that of the receiver 470 of the heat sink 400. The inside of the housing 500 has a space for receiving the power supply 600.

The housing 500 receives the power supply 600 thereinside and protects the power supply 600. The housing 500 prevents the heat radiated from the heat sink 400 from being transferred to the power supply 600, thereby preventing the temperature rise of many parts 610 of the power supply 600.

The housing 500 may include an upper housing 510 and a lower housing 550. The upper housing 510 and the lower housing 550 are coupled to each other and may receive the power supply 600 thereinside.

The upper housing 510 is disposed between the member 410 of the heat sink 400 and the upper portion of the power supply 600. Since the upper housing 510 is disposed behind the light source module 200 which generates the most heat in the heat sink 400, the amount of the temperature rise of the parts 610 of the power supply 600 can be reduced.

The lower housing 550 is disposed between the base 430 of the heat sink 400 and the lower portion of the power supply 600. Here, a silicone molding process may be performed on the inside of the lower housing 550 in order to fix the lower portion of the power supply 600. The lower housing 550 may be coupled to the socket 700 to which an external electric power is applied.

The housing 500 may be formed of a material having excellent electrical insulation and thermal resistance. For example, the housing 500 may be formed of polycarbonate (PC).

<Power Supply 600>

Referring to FIG. 3, the power supply 600 may include a support plate 630 and many parts 610 mounted on the support plate 630. The many parts 610 may include, for example, a DC converter converting AC power supply supplied by an external power supply into DC power supply, a driving chip controlling the driving of the light source module 200, an electrostatic discharge (ESD) protective device for protecting the light source module 200, and the like. However, there is no limit to this.
