First Components: Power savings of up to 57% feasible: Ideal combination of High Power LED and LED driver

Munich, First Components offers Edison Opto's EPLW-2E00 15-W High Power LED and Macroblock's MBI1801 LED Driver which make up an ideal combination.

The MBI1801 Analog Driver is the device of choice for lighting applications in high speed photography, for traffic projects and for all applications that need a uniform non-pulsed light output. Its ±0.1% accuracy relative to the LED's supply voltage underlines its suitability for high end use. The device's Enable input can be used to enable and disable the driver within 500ns typ., supporting PWM operation at frequencies of up to 1MHz. The chip is supplied in a TO263 package and comes with an integrated over-temperature protection that alerts with an eye-catching flashing.

The EPLW-2E00 15-Watt LED is ideally suited for operation with this driver device. Its forward voltage of 14.2V (for blue, white, warm white, and green) warrants efficient operation at 15Vdc. The resulting load of the LED driver is less than 1 Watt, and the low heat dissipation allows for space and energy savings. With up to 650lm, the luminous flux of this LED reaches the same order of magnitude as a 35-Watt low voltage halogen capsule's (e.g. 650lm HNST35W), enabling power savings of up to 57%.
