Delta Launches New EUCO Arena Sport Series LED Drivers for Reliable, Efficient Arena and Outdoor Lighting

Delta Launches New EUCO Arena Sport Series LED Drivers for Reliable, Efficient Arena and Outdoor Lighting Delta, a global leader in power and thermal management solutions, today announced the launch of EUCO Arena Sport Series LED drivers, which are designed to provide luminaire manufacturer's a versatile solution for many industrial and commercial lighting applications such as high mast lighting, recreational sports lighting, harbors, airports, and parking lot lighting. Built on three independent output channels with a maximum power of 500 W (1500 W total), these drivers have a wide operating temperature range that ensures performance and reliability for the most rugged applications. These drivers offer precise tuning of the drive current and are equipped with dimming circuitry for DALI-2 digital dimming to allow for adjustment of lighting levels from 0.1% to 100%. In addition to the driver architecture and circuit topology, Delta has achieved a very low typical current ripple of ≤1% peak-to-peak. That is important when it comes to televised events, since current ripple can cause LED flicker. Flickering lights affect the quality of sports broadcasts and limit slow motion options. Read more »

OMC Announces New Ultra-High-Efficiency IR SMA Fibre-Optic Transmitter LED - FDE870HE

OMC Announces New Ultra-High-Efficiency IR SMA Fibre-Optic Transmitter LED - FDE870HE OMC, the pioneer in optoelectronics design & manufacture, announces its new FDE870HE industrial fibre optic transmitter LED that can deliver up to four times more launch power into multimode fibre for the same current versus existing transmitter devices. This ultra-efficient transmitter contains a high-performance 870 nm chip and features an array of micro-optic elements that gather and focus the emitted photons, coupling considerably more light into multimode optical fibres and enabling data to be transmitted reliably over greater distances, or for the system to use less power to achieve the same result. Greater long-term reliability of the system is a further benefit due to the vastly enhanced day-1 launch power and much lower drive current requirements. Read more »
