Phihong Announces a New 10W Triac-Dimmable, Constant Current LED Driver

The new water- & dustproof PDA010N constant current LED drivers are compatible with all types of residential lighting dimmers

Fremont, CA (November 05, 2015) — Fremont, CA (November 5, 2015) – Phihong USA, a leading global supplier of energy efficient OEM power and lighting solutions, has announced a new series of 10W TRIAC-dimmable, constant current LED drivers for residential lighting applications. The new PDA010N Series LED drivers provide energy efficient, flicker- and shimmer-free performance for a broad range of residential LED fixtures, including indoor and outdoor fixtures, downlights, and architectural lighting. The new series is also compatible with most leading edge, trailing edge, and smart dimmer technologies.

Rated for 10W output power, PDA010N Series LED drivers are available with three constant current outputs (350mA, 700mA, and 1000mA), and are designed to operate using 108–132VAC and ≤ 0.25A input power to deliver 78% efficiency at 120VAC with power factor correction of ≥ 0.9 and total harmonic distortion (THD) of less than 20%.

“Our new PDA010N Series fills a critical void in the LED lighting market: smart dimmer compatibility. By working with more dimmers, including TRIAC dimmers, which are the most popular residential light dimming control, the clever engineering behind our new LED drivers provides enhanced application flexibility, allowing lighting engineers to easily and effectively integrate an array of dimming technologies in their lighting projects,” said Keith Hopwood, vice president of Phihong. “Compatible dimmers tested for the new series include: Lutron® Diva®, Skylark®, Nova®, Glyder®, Maestro®, and RadioRA2™ dimmers, in addition to a variety of rotary and slide dimmers.”

Covered by a three-year warranty, PDA010N Series LED drivers are water- and dustproof per IP67; feature over-voltage, over-current, overload, and short-circuit protection; and are certified to UL8750 Class 2 per UL1310 safety specifications. Exhibiting both high performance and energy efficiency standards, the series is also approved for use in Energy Star products, and qualifies for a variety of state energy department and utility company rebates.

PDA010N Series LED drivers measure 80mm x 78mm x 25.4mm (3.14in x 3.07in x 0.992in) and weigh 165g (5.82oz). Operating temperatures for the series span 0°C to +85°C, and pricing for single unit quantities starts at under $20 through Phihong distributors.
