Roal Electronics Extends Power Range of the Award Winning Ozon Series LED Drivers

ROAL Electronics is launching a new, higher power Intelligent LED Driver series. The Ozone 150 W Series combines smart technology, space and energy savings, and user-managed flexibility into a super compact 150 W package.

The new Ozone 150W series single channel constant current LED drivers are designed for directly powering LEDs in high power indoor and outdoor lighting fixtures such as street, tunnel, flood, parking lot, industrial and high bay lighting.

The Ozone is a true plug and play solution with standard features such as universal input voltage (120/230/277 Vac), active PFC > 0.9, THD < 20%, a field programmable output current set point, 0 - 10 V or 1 - 10 V dimming. DALI communication protocol and PWM dimming ready, Ozone 150 W Series also includes 6kV surge protection, with multiple input and output protection features.

Ozone integrates many intelligent functions, such as adjustable dimming, soft start and constant light feature, plus complimentary software and user friendly programming tools that may be used to set all of the driver’s features. A dedicated case accessory enables the unit to be used in remote gear applications.

The new Ozone family of drivers comes in four models from 50 to 295 Vdc, with output currents from 200 mA to 1500 mA.

First introductions will be at the Strategies in Light, 19 – 21st November 2013, in Munich and Luxlive, 20 - 21st November 2013, in London.
First samples will be ready in December for OEM customers. The family will be released to distribution beginning in Q2 2014.
