Phihong USA has introduced a new line of constant-current LED drivers designed as fixed wall plug adapters. The low cost adapter-style drivers are available for North American input voltages, and provide ample power for consumer lighting applications. "The wall plug adapter form is a low cost power option for OEMs' lighting projects, and is very consumer friendly due to its ubiquity in households around the world," said Keith Hopwood, vice president of marketing for Phihong USA. "Phihong has long been the global leader in adapter technology, and is now using its expertise to create reliable, energy efficient LED drivers at the markets' most competitive pricing."
Three individual series, with outputs ranging from 6W to 24W total power, are now available to meet the needs of standard residential, office, and retail lighting applications. The PDA006A series consists of 6W LED adapters available in 350mA, 700mA, and 1000mA outputs, which makes them ideal for small porch lights and desk lamps. The PDA012A series consists of 12W LED adapters available in 350mA, 700mA, 1000mA, and 1500mA outputs, which makes them ideal for floor lamps, cabinet lighting, and retail display lighting.
The final series, designated the PDA024A, consists of 24W LED adapters and is available in 700mA, 1000mA and 1500mA outputs, which makes them ideal for bright displays and higher power under-counter lighting. All of the drivers in the energy efficient series' feature Level V efficiency markings and have power factors greater than 0.90. Additional standard features on the UL1310 Class 2 output drivers include over-voltage, over-current, short-circuit, and open-circuit protections.
