TDK-Lambda Extends IP66-Rated AL Series LED AC-DC Power Supplies with 60W, 80W and 100W Versions

TDK-Lambda Germany, a group company of the TDK Corporation, has added three new power levels to its AL range of LED AC-DC power supplies, which is targeted towards next generation LED lighting and signage applications requiring high power and high reliability. Perfectly suited for both indoor and outdoor installations, including traffic, street, architectural and emergency service lighting, as well LED illumination boards, signs and displays, these power supplies are IP66-rated and accept a wide universal AC input (90 to 305Vac).

The AL series of LED power supplies is available in two output modes – for constant voltage (ALV) and constant current (ALC) applications. Both versions are available in 60W, 80W and 100W power levels with 12V, 24V and 36V versions for the ALV series and 1050mA, 1400mA, 1700mA, 3000mA, 3300mA and 4000mA versions for the ALC series.

The AL series LED power supplies are compact, measuring 241 x 43 x 35mm, and are mounted in a vibration and shock resilient, IP66-rated sealed case. They are convection cooled, operating between -30°C and +50°C without derating, with a guaranteed start up at -40°C and an efficiency of up to 89%. All models have over voltage protection and over current protection.

As well as being EN55015, EN55022, CISPR22 and FCC compliant (achieving class B conducted and radiated emissions with a substantial margin), TDK-Lambda’s AL series complies with European safety requirements of EN61347-1 and EN61347-2-13 (for lamp control gear), as well as UL8750, CSA C22.2 60950 (2nd edition) and DENAN PSE. They are also ENEC and CE marked, thereby suitable for worldwide installations. To ensure long term reliability, all models meet IEC61000-4-2, -3, -4, -5, -6, -8, -11 immunity standards, IEC61000-3-2 Class C Harmonics at loads down to 50% and are supported by a 3-year warranty.
