Code Mercenaries Adds New 4 Channel Intelligent LED Driver to Its Product Range

Code Mercenaries introduces a 4 channel, intelligent, and programmable LED driver. LED-Warrior04 has I2C, DMX512, and DALI interfaces. Bluetooth LE can be added with a piggyback module.

Technical data:
•    DALI to PWM controller
•    According to DIN EN 62386-101/-102/-207
•    All protocol elements implemented
•    PWM output at 500 Hz
•    PWM dimming from 0.1 % to 100 %
•    PWM power output on LW07-02MOD, up to 4 A
•    Logarithmic and linear dimming curves
•    Available as module or DIL8/SOIC8 chip

The LED-Warrior04 offers high flexibility. For each of the four channels the forward current and brightness of the LEDs can be individually and independently programmed. Current can be programmed from 200 mA to 1000 mA in steps of 5 mA. Brightness is controlled by internal 12 bit PWMs for each channel, allowing 4096 steps.

Programmability of the LED forward current enables the use of a single type of driver for a wide range of LEDs. The high resolution of the brightness control allows precise color mixing or calibration of multiple LED groups.

I2C, DMX512 and DALI are available for control of the four channels. The I2C interface also allows programming the LED-Warrior04 for stand-alone operation.

The I2C interface may be used for service to recalibrate already installed units. Light scenarios can be programmed for stand alone operation, to run independent effects like fading or color change. LED-Warrior04 operates with DC input from 7 V to 32 V and drives up to 4 x 25 W to the connected LEDs at up to 94% efficiency.
