KOTA Patented LED Performance

The Apollo 1200 COB dissipates heat before it harms the chip.

KOTA 1200w LED Sports Light 120-277v features a single multi-layer Apollo 1200 Flip Chip COB LED. with a unique heat-dispersion system.

The KOTA 1200w LED Sports Light 120-277v features a single multi-layer Apollo 1200 Flip Chip COB LED. with a unique heat-dispersion system. This single-chip configuration far out-performs lamps with multiple chips, largely due to dramatically reduced thermal resistance and lower operating temperature.

All LED chips are made up of layers: The top layer is the chip itself, then an electrode, an insulating layer, a contact, and lastly, a metal core or substrate layer. Although LEDs are cool to touch, the layers generate and trap considerable internal heat due to inherent inefficiency. Heat impedes performance and shortens a fixtures’ lifespan. Other sports lighters address thermal management by installing fans to move the air within the fixture. Over time, however, fixtures with fans can become less effective at cooling, more expensive to operate, and furthermore, the fans themselves become a point of failure.

KOTA LED Sports Light from Access Fixtures solve heat issues with a unique DBR flip chip design. The  incorporate a channel through the layers which dissipates the heat before it harms the LED. As a result, every fixture in the KOTA line delivers a tremendous amount of light (up to 113,458 lumens for this model) for a rated life of 100,000 hours.

KOTA Patented Passive-Cooling Heat Sinks

KOTA LED Sports Light Heat Sink

KOTA heat sinks feature between 36 and 90 fins, depending on wattage. Increased surface area increases the fixtures’ cooling ability.

In additional to the self-cooling LED chip, the KOTA 1200w sports lights use patented heat sinks to control fixture temperature. Passive cooling is continuous even when the luminaire is working at its maximum potential. Learn more about heat-sink technology.
