New range of Constant Voltage LED Drivers is Triac dimmable

Sunpower announces its new PCV range of LED drivers which offer constant voltage operation with 0 – 100% Triac dimmable control (dimmer dependent). These mains dimmable drivers are compatible with both leading-edge and trailing-edge dimmers. The range currently has six models, with power ratings from 20 W to 90 W. All models have both 12 V and 24 V output versions. The PCV products are the latest additions to Sunpower’s extensive family of constant voltage drivers, ranging from 3 W to 400 W output.

The PCV drivers are suitable for demanding indoor applications within commercial, retail, industrial and domestic environments. Each unit is fully isolated within a fire resistant plastic cover rated to IP44 for ingress protection. Over current, short circuit and overvoltage protection is built in, with capability for auto-recovery from all conditions. All drivers comply with safety standards EN 60598, EN 61547, ENV 5024, EN 61000-4-2,3,4,6,8,11, EN 61000-3-3 and EN 61000-3-2. They also meet EMI emission standards to EN 55022 and EN 55015 Class B.

The PCV LED drivers operate at greater than 80% efficiency, with a power factor of over 0.95. The operating temperature range is -30 to +45°C, with a lifetime of 50,000 hours at TC max. Installation is easy, with screw terminals provided for simple connection. The range is ideal for retrofit installations, as no extra wiring is required. Only conventional cabling is necessary, with no need for signal wires or loop-in circuits. Sunpower’s confidence in the products is underwritten with a two-year warranty being offered on all units.

The PCV LED driver range is particularly well suited to LED tape and strip lighting, decorative LED lighting and LED shelf and ambient lighting. “The new PCV family eases design and installation of both new and retrofit applications” commented Andy Wall, CEO at Sunpower Technology LLP. “Additionally, it will deliver a better experience for the lighting systems’ users – fluctuations and disturbances in the supply current will not affect the LED output, so a predictable and reliable light intensity is maintained at all times.”
