dilitronics Presents New Versatile and DALI-Compatible LED Driver driveDOT4

dilitronics, the high-tech company from Jena, now offers a DALIcompatible 4-channel LED driver. Thanks to the controLED technology developed by dilitronics, the driver module allows energy-saving controlling and dimming of four individual LED channels with a total output of 126 watts.

The versatile LED driver driveDOT4 is part of the new driver generation developed by dilitronics. This in-house development allows operation of LED modules with two different forward voltages. This is made possible by the automatic voltage control. As a constant-current driver, the driveDOT4 is able to dim from one to 100 percent without changing the colour point. Four LED channels with a total output of 126 watts can be controlled with the compact LED driver. Thanks to the DALI interface, the driveDOT4 can be quickly integrated into existing illumination and building management systems and creates a pleasant atmosphere, for example in bars, hotels and restaurants.

With the installation of the new 4-channel LED driver driveDOT4, manufacturers of indoor and outdoor lamps also profit from economic retrofitting of multiflame LED lamps to dimmable DALI lamps. "Our driveDOT4 sets new standards in energy efficiency and flexibility of DALI-compatible LED drivers. Each of the four channels of the driveDOT4 corresponds to a DALI device which can be controlled and dimmed independently of the others. This enables professional and comfortable light management," explains Stephan Schulz, CEO of dilitronics GmbH.

With the driveDOT4, dilitronics offers lamp manufacturers an LED driver that can be easily controlled via DALI. Apart from this, the driver also offers installers and architects new options of light design, both indoors and outdoors. The DALI compatibility, the individual control of the four channels as well as the possibility to use LED modules with different forward voltages make the driveDOT4 a versatile driver module.
