GlacialLight Now Using Innovative LED Driver in Products to Enhance Lumen and Life Performance

GlacialLight, a sub-division of the experienced technology manufacturer GlacialTech Inc., is pleased to announce the newly innovated GlacialPower LED driver that enhances lumen and power-saving performances, making available more compatible, more efficient and more reliable LED lighting products. The GlacialPower LED driver is already in use on GlacialLight's MR16 and AR111 LED bulbs.

GlacialLight's R&D team has developed the GlacialPower LED driver to eliminate the need for an electronic transformer, aiming to provide more energy-saving and environmentally-friendly LED products. GlacialPower's LED driver technology is expected to lead a new trend in innovation and become an essential feature for all LED lighting products.

Traditionally, LED chips are powered as follows:
An electronic transformer is used to convert AC voltages (usually 110V or 220V) to the LED product's specified voltage (AC12V) -> This power then flows into an LED driver and is converted into DC voltage with constant current control -> Finally, the power flows to the LED chip.

With GlacialPower's innovative LED driver, the first step in this power conversion process is unnecessary (see image above). AC voltages flow directly into GlacialPower's LED driver and then provide a constant current to the LED chip, without any additional drivers needed in the bulb itself.

The advantages of bundling AR111/MR16 LED luminaries with the GlacialPower AC-to-DC LED driver HS05N / HS10P /HS15P/ TS10P series: 
1. The AC-to-DC LED driver can accommodate a wide AC input voltage range of 90~264V. ( TS10P Excluded)
2. Benefits from this one-stage power conversion include high efficiency and high reliability.
3. AC Triac Dimming capability. ( TS10P only )
4. High power factor (PF) achieved. (HS05N Excluded )
5. No compatibility issues are caused by AC electronic transformers.
6. LED lifetimes are prolonged by eliminating the need for AC electronic transformers in the lighting system.
7. The series can put up with harsh environments and is accredited with the IP67 ingression protection against dust and water.
8. The AC-to-DC LED driver also complies with the IEC 61347 safety standard.

This enhancement means that GlacialLight's LED products have a more optimized and streamlined powering process. The simplified process makes the power conversion efficient and enhances the reliability of the LED products.
