Electrically Isolated and Thermally Radiating LED Module
An electrically isolated light-emitting display (LED) module (100) efficiently transfers heat away from electronic components by thermally conducting the heat to the outside walls of an enclosure (102). An embodiment includes a plastic enclosure (102) having thin plastic walls that define an opening, a plastic cover having a lens (108) and configured to cover the opening, a power supply unit (PSU), a light-emitting diode (LED) operably connected to the PSU, and a thermally conducting potting material (120). The potting material is deposited into an interior volume of the plastic enclosure (102) to cover the PSU, contact a back portion of the LED, and to thermally connect the PSU and the LED to the thin plastic walls of the plastic enclosure without covering a front portion of the LED.
