“This outdoor LED driver satisfies a niche architectural lighting design need by providing enough power to operate several luminaires at once for wash and area lighting,” said Keith Hopwood, vice president of marketing for Phihong USA. “The constant voltage design enables users to power an array of individual luminaires via driver ICs, eliminating the need for each to have its own separate driver.”
The driver is compliant with UL8750 and bears safety approvals from CE and cUL/UL. In addition, the universal input of 100 to 304VAC enables the driver to be fully functional at mains voltage inputs ranging from the standard North American 120 and 277VAC to the standard European 230 and 240VAC.
The PDA080B is water-resistant and fully potted, featuring an ingress protection rating of 65, and can withstand temperatures ranging from -40°C to +60°C. Efficient and reliable the driver offers minimum average efficiency ratings ranging from 84% at 120VAC input to over 88% at 277VAC input and has a calculated lifespan of 50,000 hours when operating at maximum load and an ambient 50°C.
The 80W LED driver also comes fully equipped with input over-current protection, short-circuit protection, output over-voltage protection, and open-circuit protection; features a minimum power factor correction greater than 0.9; and is covered by the five year warranty.
Designed as a typical ballast with regards to shape and size, the PDA080B can be incorporated into new outdoor architectural lighting designs. Each driver measures 241mm x 43mm x 30.5mm and weighs 750 grams.
