What does an LED driver do?

A driver is used to output the necessary constant current or voltage required for our LED product operation. Our constant current drivers operate at 350mA or 700mA depending on the product and require the luminaries to be wired in series. Our constant voltage drivers operate at 24V CV and this is used to operate our Contour LED strip light.

Unlike traditional transformers used with halogen or LED retrofit lamps which convert mains 230V down to 12V, LED drivers allow for multiple dimming platforms such as Phase, 0-10V and DALI dimming which provide a smoother dimming performance with the addition of a ‘DRINT’.

What is a DRINT?
A DRINT is used in conjunction with a Constant Voltage Driver to enable smooth dimming via a 1-10V or Dali control.
