Q-Tran's LED Power Supply can be dimmed with a standard dimmer.

Q-Tran has developed several products to power constant voltage LED products; including 12VDC and 24VDC linear technologies, such as ribbon light. The benefit of using the Q-Tran magnetic LED power supply is that this product can be controlled with a standard, forward-phase control dimmer known as a Magnetic Low Voltage dimmer (MLV). Q-Tran now has available with a CSA listed to UL 2108 standard, 3 product categories that include a good way, a better way and the best way to power these types of LED products.

The QTM-DC is also a rectified power supply capable of handling up to 360Watts at 12VDC or 600Watts at 24VDC. This allows the installer or specifier to put a variety of LED loads onto one transformer. The QTM-DC uses a robust rectifier to enable the conversion from AC to DC. The QTM-DC comes with Q-Tran’s QT series standard 5 tap system, allowing the installer to have the correct voltage at the end of their run and not over-drive or under-drive the LED lighting.

The QTM-DC+CAP guarantees no ripple or flicker out of the power supply. This is still a rectified power supply with a choke but also includes a large capacitor which eliminates the ripple. This is the best way to power LED fixtures especially if the LED’s are visible to the eye. This is available from 60watts to 200watts in both 12VDC and 24VDC and also has 5 voltage taps allowing you to select a tap depending on your load, preventing the installer from over voltage issues.

The QTMeLED uses electronic LED power supplies. If dimming is required a 0-10 dimming module and wire for 0-10 wiring is needed. This is available at 12VDC to have up to 3 60watt power supplies or at 24VDC up to 3 100watt LED power supplies inside each QTM enclosure.

About Q-Tran, Inc.

In 1993, Q-Tran, Inc. was founded by John Tremaine, an accomplished lighting designer who was born into a family of lighting entrepreneurs and innovators. He began his career with The Miller Company, a firm acquired in the 1930’s by his great grandfather, who founded the National Electric Lamp Association (NELA) before selling it to John’s grandfather. In the early 1920’s NELA became General Electric’s lamp division in Cleveland, Ohio, and was later transformed into a prestigious research institute that is still thriving today.

The Miller Company, a lighting company specializing in fixtures used for commercial, industrial and institutional applications, was sold to John’s grandfather, Burton, Jr., who sold it to John’s father, Burton, III, and it is where John cut his teeth before starting a lighting design practice in 1980. In 1985 John opened Primo, a high-tech lighting showroom that offered a creative alternative to functional lighting and eventually gave birth to Q-Tran.

Q-Tran was established to fulfill a need in the lighting industry for flexible remote transformers that eliminate noise and heat while enhancing the quality of light output. Operating with the mantra “EnlightenedThinking®,” Q-Tran has pioneered innovative transformers and power supply centers to provide safety, reliability, performance and convenience. It was the first company to develop an entire power supply center designed specifically for low voltage lighting. Over the years, Gean Tremaine and Jordan Nodelman would take their place by their father’s side, helping to build Q-Tran into a leading designer and manufacturer of high-quality, power supply systems, transformers and components.
