RECOM Introduces New Dimmable 25W and 35W LED Drivers

RECOM expands its already robust portfolio of dimmable LED drivers with the addition of two new 3-in-1 dimmable LED drivers: the 25W RACD25-A and the 35W RACD35-A. Each series features 3-in-1 dimming, allowing the modules to be dimmed with an analog signal (1-10V), PWM, or external resistor. These drivers round out RECOM’s already comprehensive portfolio of dimmable LED drivers, and fulfill the demand for midrange LED power supplies.

Due to a wide input voltage range (universal AC input 90-305 VAC), these versatile drivers are well-suited for power grids worldwide. Each is available in 1 of 5 different types of output current, ranging from 350 mA to 2100 mA, making them capable of powering a wide range of CoB LEDs.

Each unit offers an excellent power factor (>0.98 at 120 VAC, >0.93 at 240 VAC and >0.9 at 277 VAC) and an efficiency of more than 81% for the RACD25-A and 83% for the RACD35-A. Both modules are just slightly larger than a deck of cards (102x73.5x33 mm), and integrate easily into almost any application.

Fully protected against short circuit, overload, and over-temperature, these units carry double-isolated wires and come housed in IP67-rated casing, making the drivers environmentally versatile, usable both indoors and outdoors, in damp and in wet areas. Ideal applications include general lighting, public buildings, retail, outdoor lighting, architectural lighting, and bathrooms.

The new RACD25-A and RACD35-A 3-in-1 dimmable LED driver series are UL8750 and EN61347 certified, and also comply with the European harmonics standard EN61000-3-2 Class B. Each driver is backed by a 5-year warranty.
