Phihong Announces a New Series of Dimmable 150W Constant Current LED Drivers with 94% Efficiency
Delivering outstanding, high efficiency performance over long operational lifetimes, the new PDA150 Series LED drivers feature optional 0â€“10V dimming & are ideal for a broad range of commercial LED lighting applications
Fremont, CA (November 30, 2015) — Phihong USA, a leading global supplier of energy efficient OEM power and lighting solutions, has announced a new series of 150W constant current LED drivers for commercial lighting applications. Suitable for use in both dry and damp locations, and featuring optional 0â€“10V dimming, in addition to a 20V auxiliary output for controllers, the new PDA150 Series LED drivers provide energy efficient, flicker- and shimmer-free performance in a broad range of commercial LED lighting applications, including indoor and outdoor fixtures, area, high bay, and architectural lighting.
Rated for input voltages spanning 120â€“277VAC, PDA150 Series LED drivers deliver 150W output power, and typical efficiencies of 94% at 230â€“270VAC and 92% at 120VAC. Available with six constant current outputs (350mA, 530mA, 700mA, 1050mA, 1500mA, and 1680mA), the series has a life expectancy of 50,000 hours at full output power, 50Â°C ambient temperature, and â‰¤80Â°C Tcase, and 100,000 hours at â‰¤65Â°C Tcase, and is covered by a five-year warranty. Water- and dustproof per IP66, PDA150 Series LED drivers can tolerate humidity levels ranging from 10â€“95%, and feature over-voltage, over-current, and short-circuit protection that allows them to withstand sustained open circuit and short circuit output conditions without damage.
â€œThe new PDA150 Series LED drivers deliver outstanding, high efficiency performance over long operational lifetimes and have several additional features designed to provide effective, value-added solutions in residential LED lighting applications, including optional 0â€“10V dimming and a 20V auxiliary output for controllers,â€ said Keith Hopwood, vice president of Phihong.
PDA150 Series LED drivers are rated for use in operating temperatures spanning -40Â°C to +85Â°C, and exhibit power factor correction of â‰¥ 0.9, total harmonic distortion (THD) of less than 12%, and a 0.5mA maximum leakage current at 277VAC. The series is also certified to CE, UL8750, and RoHS safety specifications.
PDA150 Series LED drivers measure 241mm x 59mm x 39mm (9.49â€ x 2.32â€ x 1.54â€), weigh 1,043g (2.3lbs), and utilize standard length (25cm/10â€) 18AWG solid copper lead wires for the input, output, 0â€“10V dimming, and auxiliary. Pricing for single unit quantities starts at under $70 through Phihong distributors.
