ERP Power Introduces Europe's Smallest LED Driver

ERP Power LLC (ERP), a leading provider of small, smart and connected LED drivers for the lighting industry, announced the world’s smallest power supply for LED lighting fixtures that has been demonstrated in Bregenz, Austria at Europe’s leading lighting technologies conference LED professional Symposium + Expo (LpS 2018). The ERP next generation VLM Series Class II constant voltage LED driver architecture delivers power density of 20 Watts per cubic inch in a package the size of two AA/LR6 batteries. European terminal blocks with optional strain relief and CE/ENEC/CB certification address a wide range of architectural, commercial, and industrial lighting applications

“ERP is once again redefining what small and powerful means in the LED lighting industry,” said Jeffrey Frank, CEO of ERP Power. “Every LED luminaire design engineer who has held it in their hand simply says ‘Wow!’. We expect our new LED driver power density will accelerate an entire generation of creative new lighting fixture designs.”

The patent-pending power electronics design delivers more than double the density of the previous generation ERP platform, while delivering 5 times the power density of current industry competitors. Initial models will be available in 100 W, 60 W, and 40 W capacity in an aluminum housing to improve thermal performance. The VLM Series drivers help LED lighting fixture manufacturers meet the technical requirements of ENERGY STAR®, California Title 24 and the DesignLights Consortium (DLC) specifications. ERP Power drivers are designed in California and built to last with a 5-year limited warranty.

LpS 2018 attendees have seen the ERP VLM Series driver on display as part of the Future Lighting Solutions demonstration in booth number A17; and as part of a Lumitronix demonstration in booth number A14. The VLM Series drivers are available worldwide from ERP Power’s distributors.
