Dilitronics Introduces LUC04 - A Compact Driver for Integration into Lighting Fixtures

With the LUC04, the high-tech company dilitronics based in Jena, Germany, offers a highly innovative driver module for controlling LEDs. The integration module has been specially designed to be fitted inside the lighting fixture. With the controLED technology developed by dilitronics it enables individual and energy-efficient control of up to four LED channels, and lamps with a total power of up to 280W. The LUC04 allows light manufacturers to upgrade existing multi-LED lamps to DALI or DMX-dimmable luminary.

With this driver the innovative high-tech company is focussing on manufacturers of both indoor, and outdoor lighting systems. As Stephan Schulz, CEO of dilitronics GmbH, explains: "Limited space in the luminary and the high level of heat generated by conventional LED drivers create problems for many lamp manufacturers with dimmable LED drivers. The LUC04 is compact, light and generates no waste heat, but can nonetheless dim up to 280 Watt LED power and provides four independent DALI/DMX devices. With this new product we are once again setting new standards in terms of energy efficiency and power density."

The driver has been specially developed for lighting concepts that have to be space-saving and at the same time provide high light intensities. Thanks to its compact design, it allows lightweight encapsulation and reduces the cabling effort in the body of the lighting fixture. About the technical characteristics Schulz said that: "Building up on our energy-efficient controLED technology, the driver has four channels. Each of these four channels can dim up to 70 Watt and each corresponds to a DALI device or a DMX channel." Power is supplied using commercially available, high-quality switching power supplies that dilitronics GmbH can also supply to its customers on request.

Through out the expansion of the LUC04 LED lamps which already established on the market can be upgraded using the LUC04 and used for a wide range of applications. DALI is the industry standard in Europe for digitally dimmable lighting systems, particularly for indoor lighting. DMX on the other hand is frequently used for show and entertainment lighting. As Schulz explains: "Implementing the LUC04 enables our customers to access both markets, without having to significantly modify existing products."
