Inventronics Expands Cost-Effective, Programmable LED Driver Family

Inventronics Expands Cost-Effective, Programmable LED Driver Family Inventronics has expanded their EUK family of programmable, constant-power and IP67 LED drivers to include models at power levels of 320 W. These new models are in addition to already extensive power level range which includes 75 W, 96 W, 150 W, 200 W and 240 W models. The EUK family is well suited for applications that do not require enhanced features such as always-on auxiliary power, controls-ready features or multiple timer dimming capabilities. By optimizing the features including isolated 0-10 V and 10 V PWM dimming, there is now a more cost-effective product that still offers design flexibility, high efficiency and a reliable performance.
