Dimmable LED drivers as the name suggests offer dimming control i.e. the ability to control the light intensity produced by LED lamps. Dimmable LED drivers have numerous applications i.e. making; stadium flashlights, security lights, theatre/stage lighting, LED home lighting, traffic signal lighting, LED decorative lighting among many other types of lights which need light intensity control and regulated currents. In most cases, LED lamps require real-time LED output intensity changes a function popularly known as dimming control. Dimmable LED drivers are categorized according to the series. Below are some of the common dimmable LED drives series in the market today.
1. Series RLDD015
The RLDD015 LED driver series has a maximum output power of 15 Watts.
The RLDD015 dimmable LED driver series belongs to the NEC Class 2 of LED dimmable drivers. The driver series has an AC input of 120/230vac and an operating temperature between -30 and +90°C. The driver series has an IP20 encapsulated plastic enclosure and a compact design for integrating electrical junction boxes and light fixtures. The RLDD015 dimmable LED driver series also has mounting clips for installing the driver in suitable mounting locations.
2. Series PCD-16
The PCD-16 series is another popular dimmable LED driver series with a maximum power output of 16 Watts.
The PCD-16 dimmable LED driver comes with two main AC input types namely type A (90/135vac) and Type B (180/295vac). The PCD-16 dimmable driver is a Class II UL8750 LED driver. The operating temperature of PCD LED dimmable drivers is between -30 and +60°C. The driver also has an IP30 isolated plastic casing for protecting the driver. In summary, the PCD-16 series is more superior than the RLDD015 series if you are looking for higher output power and operating temperatures.
3. Series LPF-16D
The LPF-16D series is another popular dimmable LED driver. The driver has a maximum output power of 16 Watts.
The LPF-16D LED driver has an AC input of 90/305vac which is higher than both the PCD-16 and the RLDD015 series. This dimmable driver series is a UL8750 Class II power unit with operating temperatures between-35 and +70°C and an active PFC function. The Driver series has an IP30 plastic enclosure which is fully isolated with a level 94V-0 fire protection. In summary, this dimmable LED driver offers more superior features than the other two driver series mentioned above.
4. Series PCD-25
The PCD-25 dimmable LED driver series offers a maximum output power of 25 Watts.
The PCD-25 dimmable LED driver has two AC input types namely A (90/135vac) and B (180/295vac). The PCD-25 driver is a Class II UL8750 LED dimmable driver with an operating temperature between -30 and +60°C and an active PFC function. The driver has a small compact size IP30 isolated plastic case UL94V-0. In summary the PCD-25 dimmable driver is ideal for home lighting applications because of the driver’s modest features.
5. Series RSLD035
The RSLD035 dimmable LED driver series is also among the top five dimmable driver series. This driver series is one of the most powerful driver series with a maximum output power of 35 Watts.
The RSLD035 dimmable LED driver series is a class II (UL60950-1 and UL8750) driver series with AC input/s; 120/240/277vac and operating temperatures between -30 and +90°C. The RSLD035 dimmable LED driver series is a high efficiency dimmable driver series with a constant current output. The Driver series has a compact design that integrates into most standard electrical junction boxes and light fixtures. The driver series also has temperature protection i.e. an NTC thermostat which prevents overheating. The RSLD035 Series is the best dimmable driver LED series for large-scale applications i.e. security light and stage lighting.
