More Information on LED Driver Modules...

What is an LED Driver Module?

An LED Driver Module (short: LED driver) is an electrical device used to power Light Emitting Diodes (LED).

LED drivers are either constant current or constant voltage. Constant current drivers can power LEDs directly. Constant voltage drivers typically power an IC (Integated Circuit), which provides a constant current to the LED string.

LED drivers come with various specifications and features. The most important ones are:

Output power (W):
- Example: 20 W for a spot light or 150 W for a street light

Input voltage (V):
- Example: 120 V or 240 V or 277 V or 347- 480 V

Output current (mA):
- Example: 700 mA or 1050 mA

Output voltage (range) (V):
- Example: 24.5 V – 30.5 V

Dimming:
- Example: 0-10 V, dim-to-off, Triac, ELV, DALI or PWM

Other:

  • Indoor vs. outdoor
  • IP rating
  • Safety certifications
  • Form factor
  • Controls ready / wireless
  • Sensor ready
  • Auxiliary output voltage
  • Tunable white
  • DMX

Typical applications for LED Driver Modules:

  • Downlights
  • Spotlights
  • Troffers
  • Linear and pendant lighting
  • Industrial indoor lighting
  • High Bays
  • Mid Bays
  • Low Bays
  • Outdoor lighting
  • Street lighting
  • Wallpacks
  • Flood lights
  • Entertainment lighting
  • Architectural lighting
  • Signage
