The CSYS CLAMP is the latest in the CSYS range from Jake Dyson. The past years have been dedicated to the development of this lighting range incorporating functional motion mechanics and the designer's know-how and research, fulfilling a desire to challenge conventional mechanical movement and positioning of existing task lights.

The CSYS CLAMP is a new clamp-fastening version in the CSYS LED task light range, designed to free up surface space and can be positioned anywhere around a desk, table or shelving unit - particularly useful for commercial spaces.

It has been designed using refined thermal management and heat pipe technology, which was developed for use in satellites and is now more commonly used to cool microprocessors in computers.

The heat pipe removes heat from the LEDs and spreads it along the arm. The heat is then dispersed into the air. This keeps the LEDs running at a cooler junction temperature of 60oC thereby increasing the life-span of the LEDs and using less energy.

Energy efficiency is maximised (five times more than a halogen bulb) and at only 8W means no replacement bulbs are required. Cooling the LEDs also protects the consistency and longevity of the colour and brightness of the light which is retained with astonishing efficiency.

Heat pipe technology ensures sustainable, quality LED performance for over 160,000 hours of continual use, which equates to approximately 37+ years, at 12 hours use per day. This is a major breakthrough in LED lighting.

The CSYS CLAMP is easy to manoeuvre, both horizontally and vertically, as well as rotationally through 360o. Its features include precise positioning, touch sensitive dimming and light level memory. The height of the lamp is 84.6cm, including an adjustable 6.8cm grip, with an arm width of 87cm, available in black or silver.
