Sunpower’s new LCM-25(DA) 25 W constant current LED power supply allows designers to implement low-wattage intelligent LED lighting control systems and project style lighting designs. The LCM 25(DA) is the latest addition to the LCM series which already includes 40 W and 60 W constant current products. Its output, while maintaining a constant current to meet LED requirements, can be flexibly set to different levels from 350 mA to over an amp by a built-in DIP switch. The LCM-25 features a 2 in 1 Dimming Function which can be driven either by 0-10 VDC or by PWM control inputs. The digital LCM-25DA is additionally equipped with a DALI interface and pushbutton dimming function. LCM-25(DA)s can be synchronised so that up to 10 of these LED drivers can be simultaneously controlled from a single dimming command. The LCM-25(DA) operates from 180 – 277 VAC input and, with built-in active PFC, meets…

Sunpower announces its new PCV range of LED drivers which offer constant voltage operation with 0 – 100% Triac dimmable control (dimmer dependant).

All models have both 12 V and 24 V output versions. The PCV products are the latest additions to Sunpower’s extensive family of constant voltage drivers, ranging from 3 W to 400 W output. The PCV drivers are suitable for demanding indoor applications within commercial, retail, industrial and domestic environments. Each unit is fully isolated within a fire resistant plastic cover rated to IP44 for ingress protection. Over current, short circuit and overvoltage protection is built in, with capability for auto-recovery from all conditions. All drivers comply with safety standards EN 60598, EN 61547, ENV 5024, EN 61000-4-2,3,4,6,8,11, EN 61000-3-3…

Sunpower has announced its new GSM18-25-36 series of 18 W, 25 W and 36 W high efficiency medical grade AC-DC power adapters. These extend the popular GSM40A-60A 40 W and 60 W low wattage series of green medical adapters. Complying with international medical safety regulations including the 2*MOPP Means of Patient Protection level, these models feature an extremely low leakage current of 50 μA or less, a no-load power consumption below 0.1 W and a high efficiency of 88%. The entire series fulfils the stringent demands of patient contact medical applications; it also complies with the latest level V energy-saving regulations such as the European Union’s ErP Step 2 and the USA’s EISA 2007 (Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007). The GSM18-25-36 series features a full range 80-264 VAC input, using a 2-pole IEC320-C8 standard plug suitable for UK mains supplies. Its output voltage options range from 5 to…

Sunpower has announced its new MSP-600 series of AC-DC medical enclosed type power supplies. These 600 W products comprise an extension to Sunpower’s well-established MSP-100, MSP-200, MSP-300 and MSP-450 series. This introduction is in response to the demand for high-wattage, reliable medical power supplies. The MSP-600 series complies with international medical safety regulations (MOOP level) and features low leakage current, rated at 300 μA or less at 264 VAC. With these features, they are ideal power solutions for non-patient contact medical applications. With no-load power consumption below 0.8 W, 5 years’ warranty and EMI Class B level compliance, they are also suited to all types of ‘green’ medical equipment or electrical devices. Additionally, they meet energy-saving requirements for end-user systems. Medical enclosed AC/DC power supplies offer high power, international compliance and low leakage current The MSP-600 series has a universal AC input of 85 – 264 V, with output voltage…

New from Sunpower, the DAP-04 DALI to PWM converter answers the increasing demand for DALI control within LED lighting applications. The DAP-04 has a DALI input that can accept data from a remote IEC62386-101, 102 or 207 compliant DALI controller, and four PWM Dimming outputs. The DAP-04 extracts dimming levels and address information from the incoming DALI data to control each of these four PWM dimming outputs individually. Each channel can drive the PWM input of any Sunpower MEAN WELL LED power supply equipped with MEAN WELL’s ‘3-in-1’ dimming function. As these PSUs are available with capacities of up to 20 LED lighting fixtures, the DAP-04 can drive up to 80 units overall. As an alternative to DALI control, an external push dimmer can be connected to the DAP-04 to provide a push dimming function, in which the dimming level is controlled by the duration of the push time. The…
