Released Super Compact, Dimmable Voltage LED Drivers
The E-Series Is a Phase Cut (Leading Edge) Dimmable Voltage LED Driver Ranging From 20W up to 96W All of Which Are Class 2
TUSTIN, CA–(Marketwired – April 02, 2015) – Magnitude Lighting Converters, Inc. announced today the availability of its new line of Voltage LED drivers in response to the rapid expansion of the LED hospitality and residential applications that require phase cut dimmable drivers with high performance dimming range.
Magnitude developed the E-Series that is compatible with any standard TRIAC dimmer. These solid state drivers are the next generation of Voltage mode drivers in the industry, delivering power in high efficiency in an exceptionally small form factor. Encased in a low profile aluminum enclosure and rated for both indoor and outdoor use, the drivers can work in extreme temperature and environmental conditions due to their high power conversion efficiency operation. The Driver’s low profile anodized case allows designers to easily incorporate it into large portfolios of LED lighting applications ranging from fixtures, landscape lighting, tape style LEDs and electric sign LED lights.
Shafrir Romano, CEO of Magnitude Lighting converters stated: “We are responding to the growing demand of superior dimmable Voltage LED drivers; our intensive R&D efforts yield the E-Series dimmable solid state drivers that exclude electrolytic capacitors raising the bar of operation to match the high LED operation reliability.”
There are more than 150 million phase cut dimmer installations in North America alone according to NEMA (National Electrical Manufacturers Association) that were designed for use with MLV (Magnetic Low Voltage) and incandescent light sources. Magnitude worked around this fact and developed E-Series to respond to this important piece of information.
“Our R&D team tested hundreds of dimmers from various leading manufacturers and developed the drivers to handle LED loads enabling them to operate under dimmable conditions of pre-existing phase cut dimmers,” says Uzi Avisar, Magnitude’s VP Sales & Product management.
The E-Series was tested and dual listed at UL under the UL8750 as Recognized and listed dimmable Voltage LED driver, the compact form factor maintains driver height as low as 0.67 inches hence allowing low profile luminaire integration. The E-Series was also listed under UL879 — STANDARD FOR ELECTRIC SIGN AND DISPLAY.
