REDIM - Triac Dimmer for LED Lighting

Published: 21.06.2013

Modern lighting solutions offer considerably more than just a means to switch luminaires on and off. Continuously adjustable brightness creates atmosphere. Due to the rise of LED lighting, the consumed energy has also decreased. These things continue to pose new challenges to dimmers. While the base load of an incandescent bulb is about 50W or more, dimmers now must also operate with the significantly lower input power of an LED system.

Don't worry about your Battery Voltage. Our new DC/DC LED Driver "thinks" for you!

Published: 20.06.2013

When driven from batteries i.e. in solar powered applications like off-grid street lighting or temporary traffic lights, the number of individual LEDs within one string is limited by the battery voltage. A 24V battery for example can support six LEDs with a standard buck driver. When the voltage drops below the required level of approximately 22V the LEDs turn dark long before the battery’s energy is fully used.
