Upgraded LINEARdrive Gives Increased Design Freedom and Future Proofing for the Future

eldoLED's LINEARdrive 720D - the number one choice for full-colour LED applications in architectural, façade, entertainment and stage lighting - has been upgraded to support 5V, 12V, 24V and 48V LED strips. The LED strips can even operate concurrently, giving designers increased freedom and future proofing for the installation. The LINEARdrive, which dims down to as low as 0.1%, can be used with all leading protocols (DALI, DMX, DMX/RDM, 0-10V). A wealth of configurations settings is set over the user-friendly user interface.

Easy Addressing:
Thanks to the driver's Remote Device Management support, you can easily track down and address your luminaires from an RDM capable DMX controller. No need to open luminaires to re-address the driver during installation or re-commissioning.

Excellent Dynamic Effects:
When using the LINEARdrive in a DMX network, you can easily configure it to get the light output response that fits the dynamic effects of your application, even if you have to work with a DMX controller whose signal quality is not the world's greatest. No matter which type of application you have, be it 'video snappy' or 'lava lamp smooth', the LINEARdrive will deliver the effect you want.

LINEARdrive 720D (LIN720D2) Features:
• runs 5V, 12V, 24V ánd 48V LED strips, even concurrently
• offers RDM support (explore & address, ANSI E1.20)
• delivers great dimming and color fade smoothness in every situation
• supports choice of dimming curve to suit your control device
• can be completely configured via 3-button user interface
• allows upload of your show sequences for use in standalone mode through ShowMaster
