RECOM Lighting’s new LED driver series with 30 Watt constant voltage with PFC – the RACV30 series -is now available from the distributor Rutronik. The RACV30 is the first of a new series of constant voltage LED drivers, designed for powering LED strips and LED modules in applications such as cove lighting, signage, back lighting, channel letters, displays or under cabinet lighting.
The input voltage of 90 to 264VAC assures full functionality worldwide. Besides, the new drivers provide up to 30 watts. They are available with outputs of 12VDC or 24VDC, the output voltages are closely regulated to compensate for varying loads or supply changes (2% max.).
The new drivers have active PFC (Power Factor Correction/Compensation) and fully comply with EN61000-3-2 Class C. With their integrated constant current source they are able to supply several LED chains in parallel. An additional application is the combination with a DC constant current driver, such as RECOM’s RCD24. Measuring only 160x55x22mm, the constant voltage modules are smaller than comparable competitive products. As is usual at RECOM, the drivers feature a terminal block and 5.5mm jack fittings on the input and output for easy and reliable fitting. For additional safety, they feature an integrated over load and thermal protection.
