RECOM: Practical Workshop "LED Lighting" at electronica 2012

Published: 14.09.2012

LEDs are finding their way into many different areas of lighting technology. As this is a relatively new technology, many users are not experienced enough to correctly match the LED, driver and cooling. To shed light on these topics, RECOM offers interested parties the opportunity to learn "first hand" from the experts in a 2-hour practical workshop during electronica 2012. In this unique "hands-on" seminar, participants not only get to know many interesting facts on the subject of LED lighting, but they will also see how easy a conversion to LED technology in practice can be. During the workshop, the participants will modify a conventional halogen desk lamp to the latest LED technology – based on CREE high power LEDs and durable state-of-the-art RECOM LED drivers.

20 Watt Buck/Boost Driver supplies High Power LEDs from Low Power Sources

Published: 21.06.2012

Standard LED drivers (buck topology) require the input voltage be higher than the output voltage which can cause problems when working with the newest high power LEDs and powering them from low voltage sources like solar cells or batteries. Buck driver solutions, which must always have a higher input voltage than an output voltage, typically result in a design that requires multiple drivers for multiple led strings with lower forward voltages. This problem is solved with the introduction of RECOM Lightings buck/boost LED driver which can deliver high voltages (up to 40V) from a low voltage source (as low as 8V), simplifying the lighting system with the use of a single driver and a long single string of LEDs.

3 and 6 Watt LED Driver with Constant Current Supply in Ultra Compact Design

Published: 15.06.2012

Advances in LED technology require low power of 1W or 3W for LED-illumination. The two families meet the growing demand for low cost drivers below the previously available products with 12W, 20W, 30W and 60W power. With an input voltage range of 90 to 264AC the new drivers can be used universally on all networks worldwide.
