ERG LIGHTING Demonstrates New Highly Efficient LED Drivers at Lightfair 2011

ERG Lighting is featuring its new eDriver family of constant voltage and constant current LED drivers for architectural, commercial and industrial applications at LightFair International 2011 in Booth 3601.

ERG Lighting is a division of Endicott Research Group, Inc., of Endicott, NY, USA, which has been designing and manufacturing power supplies for the information display market for 32 years and is now turning its considerable experience and expertise to SSL applications.

On display at LightFair 2011 will be the e100W24V-D eDriver, the slimmest 100W LED driver on the market, powering cove lighting for outdoor illumination accents. The e100W24V-D features up to 100W of constant voltage output power, universal input, slim design (<1.30”/33mm), onboard dimming down to 10%, and high reliability, with a 5-year warranty. The e100W24V-D is ideal for linear lighting applications where driving multiple strings of LEDs from a single output is required. It can be customized to suit many different applications including cove and refrigeration lighting, under-cabinet lighting, task lighting, indoor and outdoor accent lighting, and outdoor pathway handrail illumination.

The new e75W350-DL eDriver provides up to 75W of constant current output power and is designed for internal integration into luminaires. It is dimmed by a 0-10V analog signal, providing exceptionally good dimming down to 10%. It is an extremely efficient solution for luminaires used in low-bay lighting (parking garages, warehouses, etc.), outdoor wall lighting, street lighting, and numerous other applications. At LightFair 2011, it will be powering parking garage lighting.

All eDrivers are designed, manufactured, and fully supported in the USA. They offer exceptionally high efficiency, very low ripple, excellent power factor (minimum 0.90) and total harmonic distortion of less than 20%, providing flexible, reliable and cost-efficient solutions backed by 5-year warranties, short lead times (avg. 8 weeks) and 32 years of experience in designing power supplies for illumination.
