BROOKLYN, N.Y., Sept. 27, 2010 — Recom Power Inc. has developed a series of constant-current LED drivers with universal AC input, power factor correction and UL certification. The first two products in the LightLine RACD series are a 12- and a 20-W solution to meet the needs of the high-brightness LED lighting market. With universal AC input and constant-current output of 350 or 700 mA, the modules are suitable for driving almost any LED manufacturer's products and almost all LED systems in the industry because they have a very wide output voltage range over which the constant-current regulation works. They can be used with single LEDs or with strings of up to 16. Both the RACD12 and RACD20 also feature built-in >0.95 power factor correction, 3-k VAC input/output isolation and a fused input, and are fully protected against short circuit, open circuit, overload and overtemperature, resulting in a robust, trouble-free and safe design. The converters are certified to the new UL8750 standard for driving LED arrays. The drivers are designed to be simple to use and don’t require extensive knowledge of electronics. They offer both input and output screw terminals and an additional 5.5-mm socket output. The socket allows the LEDs to be pre-wired with a matching plug to avoid possible miswiring, and they make lighting installation easier and safer. With >70,000 h of operating life, the devices are suitable for commercial, residential and industrial lighting systems.
