LUXdrive Announces the Release of the Dimmable 2,100 mA Constant Current A009 BuckBlock LED Driver

LUXdrive is pleased to announce the full release of the A009 BuckBlock LED driver, which is a high output, constant current power module ideal for driving all types of high-brightness, high-power LEDs and is available in 1.0Amp, 1.4Amp and 2.1Amp versions. With a small footprint (2.0” x 1.2”) and extremely low profile (only 0.38”), the A009 is the smallest high current LED driver available.

Typical Applications:
• Solar & Landscape Lighting
• Architectural Lighting
• Track Lighting
• Automotive & Marine Lighting
• Portable Lighting & Flashlights
• Point of Purchase Lighting
• Desk & Reading Lamps
• Signal & marker Lighting
• Flashing & Strobe Lighting
• Cabinet & Display Case Lighting
• Sign & Channel Letters
• Much More...

Features:
• DC input voltage up to 32V
• 1.0A, 1.4A, or 2.1A constant current output*
• Extremely small form factor* (2.0”x1.2”x0.38”)
• 18 AWG wires for easy electrical connections
• External analog/digital intensity control
• External potentiometer intensity control (0-100%)
• Continuous output short circuit protection
• Continuous output open circuit protection
• Input reverse polarity protection with Polarifet™ Technology
• Pulse and strobe capable (dim input)
• 0-10V Dimming compatible with many available controls

In many applications, it can be used with no additional heat sinking. Fully protected against reverse polarity, output short circuit and output open circuit, the A009 is also fully dimmable (0 – 10V) with both analog and PWM compatibility.

The A009 driver provides high efficiency and requires no external current limiting resistors. A fast response current-sensing circuit makes the BuckBlock an ideal solution for applications where flashing or strobe operation of LEDs is required.

It can be used in a huge number of LED lighting applications that include solar, landscape, architectural, track, automotive, marine, point of purchase, desk and reading, signal and marker, cabinet and display and much more.

Samples of the A009 BuckBlock are available either directly from LUXdrive or from our distributors. Please see our website www.LUXdrive.com for a data sheet and further information including contact details.
