Inventronics Expands EBS Product Line with DALI Compatibility and Advanced Common Mode Surge Protection

Inventronics has announced the release of the new EBS BTE Series of 40 W, constant-current programmable IP20 LED drivers. They operate from 176-305 Vac input and are designed for operation in both Class I and Class II environments. They are primarily aimed at street lighting applications but are equally capable in any luminaire where robust performance is needed. The advanced common mode surge protection fully meets EN61000-4-5 and EN61547, even in Class II luminaries, thus providing market leading protection against common mode surge; the most frequent cause of failure in street lighting.

The EBS BTE family can also be upgraded using an optional endcap accessory allowing it be used as an  "independent" LED driver. The plastic housing is IP20 rated which allows for even more cost reductions when you need a full-featured LED driver but not the costs associated with an IP67 rating. The Zhaga compatible rectangular design makes it the perfect choice for the more compact and slimmer European street luminaires where the standard driver form may be too large to accommodate.

The EBS Series utilizes convenient push terminals instead of cabling that provides flexibility and easier installation while reducing production and installation costs. Offering flexibility with 2 constant-power, programmable models delivering up to 40W at output currents from 450 mA to 1050 mA.  Each highly efficient model provides a 12 V / 200 mA auxiliary output capable of powering sensors or wireless controllers, they provide numerous intelligent programming options including output lumen compensation (OLC), DALI, AC dimming, intelligent timing and dim-to-off with low standby power consumption for greater energy savings.

The rugged thermal design of these drivers enable them to run cooler, significantly improving reliability and extending product life. The lifetime of these drivers is calculated to be at least 93,000 hours when operating at 80% load. These drivers also include all-around protection features which consist of: over-voltage, over-temperature for both driver and external LED array, and short-circuit protection as well as thermal sensing and protection for the LED module.

You can increase your ease of installation and reduce production times even further by combining the EBS Series with the Inventronics PRG-MUL2 programming tool. This combination furnishes fast, off-line mass programming capabilities that allows auto programming at the push of a button through user friendly PC based software.

This new family is approved to ENEC, TUV, CE, CB, CCC, KS, DALI and Double Insulation standards. Production quantities of EBS BTE Series are available now.
