Compact LED power supply with PFC delivers 30 Watt

July 23, 2012 // By Christoph Hammerschmidt
The RACV30 from RECOM is the first of a new series of constant voltage LED drivers, ideal 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 range of 90 to 264VAC assures full functionality worldwide. The new drivers provide up to 30 watts and are available with outputs of 12VDC or 24VDC. The output voltages are closely regulated to compensate for varying loads or supply changes.

The power supply features active PFC. In addition, they fully comply with EN61000-3-2 Class C certification. 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.

These new constant voltage modules measure only 160 x 55 x 22mm and are therefore smaller than comparable competitive products. They feature a terminal block and 5.5mm jack fittings on the input and output for easy and reliable fitting.

Only high grade components and materials are used in the production of these new drivers. An integrated overload and thermal protection offer additional safety, enabling a 5 year warranty. Due to their compact design they are ideal for applications and installations where space is at a premium.
