RECOM Launches Ultra compact “LightLine” AC Input LED Drivers

After the success of its pioneering DC LED driver modules, RECOM has developed a new series of constant current LED drivers with universal AC inputs, power factor correction and UL certification.

The first two products in the “all inclusive” RACD series are a 12W and a 20W solution to meet the needs of the high brightness LED lighting market. With universal AC input and constant current output of 350mA or 700mA, the RECOM AC input LED driver modules are suitable for driving almost any LED manufacturer’s products and almost all LEDs systems in the industry as they have a very wide output voltage range over which the constant current regulation works. They can be used with single LEDs or with strings of up to 16 LEDs.

Both the RACD12 and RACD20 also feature built-in >0.95 power factor correction, 3kVAC input/output isolation, a fused input and are fully protected against short circuit, open circuit, overload and over temperature, all of which guarantee a robust, trouble-free and safe design. The converters are certified to the new UL8750 standard for driving LED arrays.

The drivers are designed to be simple to use without an extensive knowledge of electronics and offer both input and output screw terminals and an additional 5.5mm socket output. The socket allows the LEDs to be pre-wired with a matching plug to avoid possible miswiring and make lighting installation easier and safer.

With over 70,000 hours of operating life, the RECOM RACD12 and RACD20 series are ideal for commercial, residential and industrial lighting systems.

In addition RECOM has added a new series of 60 Watt open frame AC input LED drivers to its range of “LightLine” constant current LED drivers. The new products are approx. half the size of their competitors.
The RACD60-Series offers a wide range of output currents and is available in five different versions to meet the current needs of any lighting system from 700mA up to 4.2Amps. The output current can be adjusted with an internal potentiometer to match any non-standard requirements.

The new products are fully protected against short-circuit, open-circuit, overload and over temperature.  With efficiencies up to 89% and built-in >0.9 power factor correction, the RACD60 is one of the most cost effective switching power LED driver modules in the market. The high efficiency permits an ambient operating temperature range of -25°C to +60°C without derating.

The module is designed to meet the European EMC and Harmonics regulations, EN55015 and EN61547 and EN61000-3-2 and -3, as well as the US safety regulations UL60950. UL8750 certification is pending.
With an outstanding compact package of 4”x2.1”, RECOM has developed one of the smallest 60Watts LED drivers in the lighting industry and its suitable for almost any industrial, commercial or residential lighting system.
