New 45 W and 60 W LED Driver Featuring 3-in-1 Dimming from RECOM

RECOM Lighting has introduced new series of 45W and 60W LED drivers for constant current LED luminaires. The RACD45-A and RACD60-A series come with a 3-in-1 dimming function so that the modules can be controlled with analog (1-10V), PWM, or external resistor dimming. The series operate with input voltages between 90VAC and 305VAC and include 4 different models with current outputs ranging from 700mA to 1850mA (RACD45-A) and from 1050mA to 4200mA (RACD60-A).

Due to their IP67-rated enclosures, these drivers are protected against dust and moisture so they can be installed in industrial or out-buildings as well as damp rooms like bathrooms or basements. These class 2 power supplies operate at temperatures ranging from -30°C up to 65°C, have efficiencies of more than 87% and feature low THD and an excellent power factor (>0.98 at 120VAC, >0.93 at 240VAC and >0.9 at 277VAC). The modules are fully protected against short circuit, overvoltage, and over temperature.

Steve Roberts, Technical Director RECOM, says: “With the flexible dimming options we are able to offer customers the usage of standard dimmers as well as to tailor the output current by using a simple resistor which could be placed at the light engine.”

The LED drivers are UL8750 and EN61347 certified and comply with the European harmonics standard EN61000-3-2 Class C. They come with a 5 year warranty.
