Harvard Technology has expanded its CoolLED Pro programmable driver range, with the addition of a CLi15 1-10V/0-10V Analogue dimmable and CLi40 DALI variants. Fully optimised for a wide range of connected lighting systems for a range of applications, the power factor corrected, fully isolated output driver, was initially launched in November 2017 at the LUX Live exhibition, in a 15W DALI variant, delivering a programmable output current range between 100-1400mA.
The CoolLED Pro drivers deliver improvements in energy efficiency, performance and connected LED lighting capabilities. Both the CLi15 1-10V/0-10V and CLi40 DALI drivers support the precise tuning of output current in 1mA step increments and smooth linear dimming down to 0.1% over the entire output range, with options for mains tolerant DALI dimming.
The drivers can be pre-programmed in the factory or at the customer location via a programming software interface, allowing the complete freedom to control the output power in any configuration they wish.
What’s more, the drivers can be implemented as part of a wireless lighting controls solution and are fully compatible with Harvard Technology’s wireless control and management system, EyeNut.
Surge protected up to 4kV, the CoolLED drivers boast an efficient twin-stage design that delivers energy savings. Drive efficiency performance at 89%, at full load, optimises cool operation, longer life and system efficacy.
An optimised driver design ensures ultra-low flicker performance of less than 1% at 100Hz/120Hz across the entire output range, mitigating the risks of invisible random flicker and comfortably meeting the requirements of IEEE1789: 2015.
With an input voltage range of between 220 and 240V and a 50,000-hour lifetime at 80°C case temperature, the devices deliver performance, flexibility and reliability for the most demanding of applications. The CLi15 1-10 & 0-10V analogue dimmable driver boasts an ultra-slim form factor of 22mm x 55.5mm x 137mm.
Tim McKernan, head Of OEM sales at Harvard Technology, said: “We are delighted to have continued our history of innovation, and built on our reputation for delivering quality products and solutions, by introducing the CLi15 1-10V/0-10V analogue and CLi40 DALI low voltage SELV drivers to our best-selling CoolLED range.
“The new drivers mark a significant leap forward in LED driver functionality, not only enabling a level of programmability that has not previously been attainable, but also expanding the possibilities for connected solid-state lighting (SSL). High-performance and feature rich, the DALI drivers employ proven, standardised DALI technology, making them ideal for a wide range of lighting applications.”
