Yuurta 3″ LED Gimbal Downlight Teardown

Let us disassemble Gimbal Spot Light and see what is inside and how it was made


So, we have got: 3-Inches Gimbal LED Recessed Downlight Kit 4000K Black Trim YUURTA:

Height of LED Panel: 2.2 Inch (5.6cm)
Cord Length: 11.8 Inch (30cm)


Step 1.
Remove trim. Trim is the most visible part of light. It covers the area where the ceiling joins the light for a smooth and stylish transition between surface and light.
Here is the trim:

Here is the light without trim:

Spep 2.
Now we have two options:
1 – Unscrew four screws to take apart case, or 2 – unscrew lamp body

Let us choose option 2 and unscrew lamp body from gimbal case:

Step 3. Let us take apart the Gimbal framework. I always was curious – How is the Gimbal frame made, what is the trick that allows lamp be so flexible with rotation about all 3 axises.

It turns out there is a metal spherical segment inside and two spherical segments outside and the rubber gasket between:

An inside metal spherical segment without lamp:

This is where the LED lamp sits. A metal spherical segment with the lamp:

And the Gimbal suspention is basically two metal parts – with spherical internal surface and a sealing ring:

So the lamp inside sits tight enogh and able to turn/rotate in tree dimentions.

Step 4. Disassemble the LED lamp itself.

Here is the internal part of the LED lamp:

And the same from othe angle:

Close up to the LED diode itself:

White roud plastic I believe has a solo perpose: fix the diode and press it down to the metal radiator (passive heat sink). Let us unscrew it:

Yes, it’s an LM002 – COB type LED diode version.

They also use thermal paste – a heat-conductive substance that is applied between the heatsink and the LED to cool. Thermal paste improves conductivity between the heatsink and the LED.
