Inventronics New 1200W LED Drivers Will Simplify and Lower Costs of Luminaire Designs

Inventronics has announced the release of a new series of ultra-high-powered LED drivers designed to solve many issues OEMs face in high-powered applications such as horticulture, high mast, airport and stadium lighting. By using one EFD Series LED driver instead of multiple lower-wattage drivers it eliminates the extra costs of mounting gear, junction boxes and complex wiring while providing more flexibility in the lighting fixture design. They also simplify the luminaire design by providing easier thermal management, lowering fixture weight and a stress-free installation.

The new series offers three models supplying 1200 W and operates over a 180-528 Vac input voltage range for single and three phase applications. They provide a high-level of design flexibility with programmable full-power output currents from 3.36-7.4 A and multiple dimming options including Isolated 0-10 V, PWM and 3 timer options. This helps to reduce inventory even more and removes the need to design-in separate LED drivers for multiple configurations.

In addition to their flexibility and their robust thermal design, the EFD-1K2SxxxDT/DV is IP67 (DT is also TYPE HL), which is ideal for environmentally harsh indoor and outdoor conditions typical of high-powered applications. The EFD series also features over-voltage, over-temperature and short-circuit protection, plus a higher level of built-in surge protection: 6kV line-to-line and 10kV line-to-earth. These drivers implement the new external over-temperature protection for LED modules, another key factor in significantly improving reliability and extending lifetime.

The EFD series is optimal for building lighting systems. These products supply a low output ripple ideal for HDTV broadcasting and are Controls-Ready. They work with a wide variety of sensors and controls since the drivers are equipped with dim-to-off capabilities and an always-on 12 V auxiliary supply sourcing up to 200 mA. This allows the EFD series to power Inventronics controls modules directly, bypassing the power and voltage restraints associated with power packs and AC relays.

The new series is approved to UL, FCC, and CE standards. Production quantities of the EFD-12KSxxxDT series suitable for North American use are available now. The EFD-12KSxxxDV suitable for use in Europe and other regions are also available now. Additional information can be found on the Inventronics website at
