LUXdrive™ Announces Its Smallest High Current Boost Driver - the A011 FlexBlock™ LED Driver

LUXdrive is pleased to announce a further addition to its line of high power, constant current drivers with the full release of the A011 FlexBlock™ LED driver.

The device, configurable in either boost only or buck-boost modes, is ideal for driving the new high-brightness, high-power LEDs and LED arrays. It is available in 350mA and 700mA versions and, with the same small footprint and extremely low profile (2.0" x 1.2" x 0.38") as the previously announced A009 BuckBlock™, the A011 is the smallest high current boost driver available.

The FlexBlock™ module operates from an input voltage of 10 to 32 VDC and provides a maximum output voltage of 48 VDC. In the buck-boost mode, the output voltage may be less than, equal to, or higher than the input voltage.

In many applications, it can be operated with no additional heat sinking. An attachment point for a thermocouple or other temperature sensor is indicated for ease in determining the need, if any, for additional heat sinking. Fully protected against reverse polarity, output short circuit, and ouput open circuit, the A011 is also fully dimmable and is compatible with many commercially available 0 to 10 VDC low voltage dimming controls.

The A011 can be used in a wide variety of LED lighting applications that include architectural, solar, accent, track, automotive, marine, desk and reading, point of purchase, signal and marker, cabin and display, and more.

Samples of the A011 FlexBlock™ are available either directly from LUXdriveTM or from our distributors.
