LED Driver Combines in a Single Device a Programmable Low Voltage LED Current Source with Lighting Control Communication Ports for Digital Dimming

This capability enhances ActiveLEDs ability to provide our customers with consistent performance.

ActiveLED, Inc., a Texas-based manufacturer of ActiveLED lighting fixtures, announced today that it has received a U.S. Patent for its LED Lighting Controller.

Standard LED Drivers typically serve two required functions for LED lighting: convert high voltage power (AC) into low voltage power (DC), and regulate the voltage or current flow to the LEDs which are DC voltage specific. ActiveLED has added two additional functions to their LED Driver.

“What we’ve patented is an LED driver that combines a programmable low voltage LED current source with lighting control communication ports in a single device,” said Klaus Bollmann, CEO of ActiveLED, Inc. “This capability enhances ActiveLEDs ability to provide our customers with consistent performance in an LED Lighting Luminaire in installations where very uniform dimmed or non dimmed light output over a very large number of fixtures is required.”

With the addition of a programmable low voltage LED current supply, ActiveLED eliminates the need to provide a broad range of voltage specific drivers by fine tuning the power required by a particular LED; creating a universal digitally dimmable LED driver.

The new ActiveLED Driver also includes input and output ports allowing the driver and its attached LED lighting to network with other drivers creating a lighting control system. Drivers can now receive communications from external lighting control devices such as sensors, switches, and commands from building management systems.

ActiveLED drivers allow 100V..277V AC input as well as 48V DC input making them DC ready for alternative energy supplies such as solar energy and storage systems.
