Getting the Light Level Just Right with RECOM’s New Low Cost TRIAC Dimmable Drivers

RECOM introduces four new LED drivers with 9 W, 12 W, 18 W and 25 W outputs. They deliver 1% to 100% leading-edge or trailing-edge TRIAC-controlled dimming at the market’s most affordable prices. These LED drivers are designed for either retrofit or new installations and allow the user to set the lighting atmosphere and mood in homes, spotlighting and furniture installations.

The new RACT series are low cost, triac-dimmable LED drivers available with constant current outputs ranging from 300 mA up to 1400 mA. Both leading and trailing edge phase angle control makes them suitable for many standard dimmers for a wide range of applications. The RACT series are ideal for indoor locations up to 50°C ambient temperature and are certified for building into furniture for applications such as dimmable shelf lighting, cove lighting or accent lighting. Integrated cable clamps and extra-large screw terminals make for an easy installation.

The Class II (double insulated) design means that no earth connection is required. They are CE marked (LVD + EMC + RoHS) and have IEC61347-1/IEC61347-2-13 CB reports. RECOM offers a 3 year warranty as standard.

Samples are available from all authorized distributors. For additional information, please visit www.recom-power.com
