Light-Based Technologies Begins Shipping UL-certified Ultra-Compatible Deep Dimming LED Drivers

Light-Based Technologies (LBT), a leading developer of intelligent power and control electronics for solid state lighting (SSL), has begun shipping UL recognized UC LED Drivers to specification grade lighting fixture manufacturers across North America. LBT continues to develop and deliver innovative solutions in order to overcome the significant barriers to adoption facing LED lighting. This first product demonstrates LBT’s approach to dealing with TRIAC dimming, delivering superior performance both in dimming quality and compatibility with the widest range of TRIAC dimmers.

The UC LED Driver, specified at 25W, with a selectable 700mA or 1000mA constant current output, delivers unsurpassed deep dimming quality and dimmer compatibility, without the flicker and pops associated with other solutions.

“Scalable and versatile power and control solutions are the key enabler for Solid-State Lighting adoption,” said Art Aylesworth, CEO at LBT. “As LED technology continues to evolve, LBT is providing our customers and industry partners with flexible solutions that meet their market demands today and into the future. The UC LED driver is based on our proprietary firmware platform and showcases our superior TRIAC dimming performance. Our firmware based approach enables faster and more cost effective delivery of the many benefits of Solid-State Lighting.”

LBT is now accepting orders for the UC LED driver.
