eldoLED's New POWERdrive 50W Raises the Bar for DMX Drivers

eldoLED today introduced its 50 W, the industry's ready to use' four-channel DMX driver. This latest addition to the POWERdrive family features DMX interface protection, faster startup times, lower standby power requirements, and a broader range of LED output current. Improved dimming algorithms reduce flicker and artefacts in rolling-shutter image sensors while offering the industry's smoothest fades. This quality of light improvements make the POWERdrive 50W uniquely suited for both architectural and entertainment installations.

"POWERdrive's dynamic response can be tuned to fit any content, from exceptionally smooth fades in architectural lighting to fast-paced video in entertainment," said Chad Stalker, VP OEM Sales. "With an isolated DMX interface and operation at 9.6 kHz through the entire 0-100% dimming cycle, POWERdrive establishes new benchmarks for reliability and performance."

Using the eldoLED FluxTool software allows programming for three-channel applications from the same driver making it applicable to almost every type of DMX application.

The drivers are UL Listed, Class P solutions and can be used to comply with California Title 24.

POWERdrive 50W is in volume manufacturing in North America and samples are immediately available. For more information and product documentation, visit or contact
