LED drivers offer increased design flexibility

15-07-2020 | Inventronics | Lighting Technologies

Inventronics has introduced a new series of IP66/IP67 LED drivers leveraging their latest enhanced platform providing for decreased inventory SKUs and increased design flexibility. The new EUM-Lx family is provided with even more features giving OEMs the capability to monitor crucial driver information, decrease maintenance costs and streamline production. They also enable OEMs to simplify installation by producing various output current configurations from 700-5600mA, adapt current luminaires to different individual needs and give extreme design versatility.

The family are provided with the valuable and time-saving features of wireless programming via NFC giving OEMs the ultimate in versatility and convenience. They can be configured with no power or a mains connection, affording an effortless approach to programming. The luminaire can be modified safely at any time and it provides for simple in-application troubleshooting. The family can be programmed using the company's PRG-NFC-D desktop programmer, PRG-NFC-H handheld programmer or any Zhaga Book 24 compatible programmers which enables manufacturers to wirelessly set the output current and minimum dimming levels.

For added convenience, the family also utilities the company proprietary Digital Dimming feature enabling users to read back critical information from the driver over a UART bus and complies with T/CSA-051. Digital Dimming gives the information required for predictive maintenance so a luminaire can be maintained before they start to fail, as well as preventative maintenance so they can be examined to see if other luminaires are presenting end-of-life behaviour. Also, the family provides AC power monitoring enabling users to measure energy consumption and properly evaluate their ROI.

The rugged, extruded-metal housing, which utilises an exclusive encapsulation process, is IP66 and IP67 rated and specifically created to operate in harsh outdoor conditions and demanding applications such as high bay, high mast and roadway lighting. This new family is approved to UL, FCC, ENEC, CE, CB, CCC, PSE, KS, KCC BIS and Independent Use certifications.
