Phihong Introduces 40W LED Drivers with a New Case & Optional 0-10V Dimming

Featuring asquared-off cases, the new additions to Phihong's catalogue of 40W waterproof LED drivers provide OEMs with more options for powering residential & commercial lighting desires

Fremont, CA (August 08, 2013) — Phihong USA, a preferred provider of OEM power solutions, including LED drivers, adapters, and PoE devices, has developed a new version of its 40W LED drivers that is capable of being installed in damp locations for a wide variety of residential and commercial applications. Designated the PDA041 series, the new 40W waterproof LED power supplies feature a squared-off case design in place of the more traditional ballast-style of its sister series and are available with constant-current outputs of 700, 1050 and 1400mA at a nominal input voltage rating of 120-277VAC.

"Expanding our 40W LED driver offering to include two different case designs will provide lighting designers with greater flexibility when integrating a power source into an application," said Keith Hopwood, vice president of Phihong. "LEDs' small size allows them to be easily integrated into non-traditional forms, which has created a demand for LED drivers with different case styles and dimensions designed to fit these new shapes."

The PDA041 series is Class 2 per UL1310 and also complies with UL8750 and UL60950. Standard features on the drivers include over-voltage protection, over-current protection, short-circuit protection, brownout and brownout recovery. Additionally, the power supplies have power factor correction greater than 0.9 and a total harmonic distortion of less than 20%.

Available with 0-10V and resistive dimming features as the PDA041W, and without dimming features as the PDA041B, the IP67-rated series is fully waterproof and is designed for operation in temperatures ranging from -40°C to over 80°C. The drivers measure 95mm (3.74”) x 71mm (2.79”) x 32mm (1.26”).

Pricing for the non-dimming PDA041B series starts at $30.10 in single unit quantities and pricing for the dimmable PDA041W series starts at $36.26 in single unit quantities. More information, including product datasheets, is available at
