Mean Well Launched Cost Effective PLP-30/60 Series PCB Type LED Power Supplies

After introducing aluminum casing (CLG family) and fully enclosed plastic casing (PLN, ELN, LP family) LED power supplies, MEAN WELL launched another new product category, open frame type – PLP family, for the “low cost” and “built-in” installation of LED lighting related applications.

Main Features:
• 4”*2” miniature PCB design
• 90~264V universal AC input range
• Built-in active PFC function, PF>0.9 for 75% load or higher
• Comply with EN61000-3-2 Class C for 75% load or higher
• Protections: Short circuit, overload(constant current limiting), over-voltage
• High efficiency up to 89%
• Cooling by free air convection
• Adjustable output current level
• Design refer to EN61347-2-13, EN55015, EN61547 per lighting regulations and UL60950-1 for ITE requirement
• Low cost, high reliability
• Dimension (L*W*H): 101.6*50.8*23mm (30W);101.6*50.8*28mm (60W)
• 2 years warranty
• Suitable for LED lighting and moving sign applications
PLP-30/60 series are 30W/60W switching power supplies with 90~264VAC universal input range. Built-in active PFC function, PF>0.9 & EN61000-3-2 Class C (harmonic current) can be achieved for output loading higher than 75% and hence can fulfill the general requirement for lighting fixtures.

Thanks to the simplified single stage PFC topology, the required high power factor can be achieved economically. Efficiency of PLP-30/60 series are as high as 89% and hence can operate at full load between -30 ~ +60℃ by only free air convection, the highest ambient temperature can even reach 70℃ which may often request by lighting systems. Through adjustment of built-in potential meter, output current level of the PSU can be fine tuned between 75~100% rated value to comply with the requirement of LED characteristics. Other standard functions include short circuit, over load, and over voltage protections. Typical applications for these new PCB type LED driver units include small scale moving signs, LED-based decorative lighting, and LED stage lighting equipment which has its own system casing.

About Mean Well:
Mean Well is one of the leading switching power supply manufacturer in Taiwan. Established in 1982, it gained ISO-9001 certification in 1994. Our product lines include AC/DC switching power supplies, DC/DC converters, DC/AC inverters and battery chargers. 

Mean Well dedicated in developing energy-saving concept products for many years. Since 2006, we started to endeavor the effort to the LED / outdoor power supply development. Thus far, full range of LED power family with more than 100 models from 18W to 240W was launched in the market with utmost success. Most of them are also comply with specific norms of UL1310 Class 2, EN61347-2-13, EN61000-3-2 Class C (harmonic current) and IP64~67. For more details, please visit
