Mean Well Adds 12 W and 25 W Constant Current Versions to Its PLM Driver Sereies

After the launch of 40 W AC/DC economical LED power supply PLM-40 series, MEAN WELL further introduced 12 W/25 W LED power supply with PFC function PLM-12/25 series, to fulfill the lower wattage requirement of the LED lighting market. Featuring 110-295 VAC input range and constant current design, both series have 4 kinds of constant current outputs from 350-1050 mA for selection.

Main Features:
•    110~295 VAC input range
•    Constant current output: 350/500/700/1050 mA
•    Built-in active PFC function
•    No load power consumption < 0.5 W
•    Set up time <500 ms
•    87% high efficiency
•    Plastic case with 94V-0 fire prevention level
•    I/O push clamp terminal block
•    Isolation class II, no FG
•    Cooling by free air convection
•    Working temperature: -30 to +50°C (PLM-12)/ -30 to +45°C (PLM-25)
•    Protections: Short circuit
•    Certificates: UL / CUL / ENEC / CB / CE
•    Dimension (LxWxH): 145x 38x 22 mm
•    2 years warranty

After the launch of 40 W AC/DC economical LED power supply PLM-40 series, MEAN WELL further introduced 12 W/25 W LED power supply with PFC function PLM-12/25 series, to fulfill the lower wattage requirement of the LED lighting market. Featuring 110-295 VAC input range and constant current design, both series have 4 kinds of constant current outputs from 350-1050 mA for selection.

With single stage PFC circuit design, PLM-12/25 series are the cost effective power solutions to reach high PF value (PF>0.9). They also comply with harmonic current limitation per EN61000-3-2 Class C and fulfill the general lighting requirements. Full series features no load power consumption <0.5W and set up time <500ms, which comply with the ErP regulation required by European Union for lighting fixtures.

PLM-12/25 series possess up to 87% of high efficiency, so that they can work between -30~+45°C or +50°C by only free air convection, which fit for the high temperature working environment in closed lighting systems. Enclosed by UL 94V-0 rated plastic case and Class II double isolation AC input design (without FG), these units can effectively prevent users from electrical shock. The I/O terminals are designed with screw-less clamp style terminal block, which allows users a more convenient wiring installation.

The complete series offers built-in short circuit protection function and comply with global lighting certificates per ENEC EN61347-2-13, EN62384, UL8750, CB, and CE, which can greatly guarantee your operation safety. Suitable applications include all kinds of indoor LED lighting like office lighting, commercial lighting, and indoor LED decorative lighting.
