Universal Lighting Technologies Adds New Compact and Linear Drivers to the Everline® Family

Universal Lighting Technologies has added to its already extensive line of well over 1,000 LED products, with the launch of two new Class 2 UNV and 347V Everline® LED Driver Families with tunable constant power output -- Compact Drivers and Linear Drivers. The two new driver families are available with a variety of output current and power options that provide even more design flexibility for LED lighting.

“The tunable constant power output of our latest Everline Compact Drivers allows us to provide customers with greater flexibility for applications for a wide variety of modules,” said Greg Bennorth, LED product manager for Universal Lighting. “Thanks to their multi-exit lead terminal configuration, our compact drivers are ideal for downlight and specialty applications requiring compact style driver housing. Our linear drivers, with their 1-inch-high, low profile housing, are perfect for use in general lighting applications.”

Universal’s tunable constant power output allows the driver’s current to be tuned down while increasing the output voltage up to a maximum of 56V, enabling output power capacity to remain constant over a wide range. This permits the drivers to offer excellent load regulation with low total harmonic distortion (THD) and a high power factor (PF), down to 40 percent of the maximum output of power loading. Both new Drivers incorporate dimming with 0-10V control.

The new Everline LED Class 2 Linear Drivers are available in 700 mA and 1050 mA current with a maximum output of 30 W, 1050 mA and 1500 mA current with a maximum output of 55 W and 2100 mA current with a maximum output of 80 W.

The new Everline LED Class 2 Compact Drivers are available in 700 mA and 1050 mA current with a maximum output of 30 W as well as1050 mA and 1500 mA current with a maximum output of 55 W. The drivers in this family additionally feature a multi-exit lead terminal, allowing for both side-exit and bottom-exit configurations. Bottom exit configurations are available with studs for J-Box mounting.
