LD015D power supply
Power Sources Unlimited has announced the LD015D Series AC-DC Constant Current LED driver power supply, which is fully potted and suitable for dry and damp locations.
It adheres to UL1310 Class 2 Safety Standards (110V AC) or CE compliancy (230V AC).
Features include input voltage of 110 or 230V AC, DC output ranges from 8 to 48V DC and wide selection of pre-adjusted constant current outputs.
Other features include: operating temperature range of -20 to 60C, phase dimmable, compatible with standard Triac and electronic low-voltage dimmers; and 82 per cent efficient typical.
Units are RoHS compliant, Reach compliant, FCC Class B, CE, EN61000-4, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 11 and UL.cUL safety certified, and carry a three-year warranty.
The Eltek Valere Flatpack2 HE Series of rectifiers has been introduced into the global telecommunications market, offering a conversion efficiency up to 96.5 per cent and a 50 per cent reduction in wasted energy, according to Power Sources Unlimited.
Linear Technology’s LTC5582 and dual-channel LTC5583 are said to offer excellent stable temperature performance (from -40°C to +85°C).
At the Energy Conversion Congress and Exposition (ECCE) 2014, GaN Systems will showcase its range of gallium nitride high-power transistors based on its proprietary Island Technology. The devices bring smaller, lighter and more efficient power electronics to numerous applications including consumer appliances, data centre server racks, heavy-duty battery-operated power tools and notebook travel adapters.
Verifying precision operation at high speed is essential, and presents a high-order measurement challenge. This application note from Linear Technology’s Jim Williams expands further on the subject.
Converting solar energy into electrical energy is easily done using Linear Technology’s LTC3105 boost converter with Maximum Power Point Control (MPPC). The MPPC feature allows the converter to extract the maximum power from a solar cell under varying sunlight conditions.
