LUXdrive, a division of LEDdynamics, Inc., has announced the release of the MiniPuck family of low voltage drivers. With a total volume of less than one cubic inch, the MiniPuck changes the rules and delivers a dimmable, constant current power module ideal for driving all types of high-brightness, high-power LEDs where volumetric area is limited.
“As LEDs manufacturers continue to follow the miniaturization of the semiconductor market, lighting manufacturers are capable of creating products with significantly reduced size” said Daniel Yasi Jr. VP of Sales at LEDdynamics. “These fixture size reductions require drivers that are able to fit into smaller areas and at the same time are capable of meeting the demands of custom applications. The Minipuck was developed to meet those
With a footprint measuring a minuscule 0.79 by 0.66 by 0.43 (LWH) inches the MiniPuck can deliver up to 1,000 mA of drive current which places it top in class amongst other industry solutions. Touting an over twenty-percent reduction in physical size from standard drivers, the MiniPuck is available in both a pinned package as well as a surface mount version making it ideal for custom low voltage requirements.
The unit features: high efficiency of up to 96 percent, operating voltage of 6 to 30 V, drive currents available from 350, 700, and 1,000 mA and it is fully PWM dimmable from 0 to 30 VDC. The stepdown design has an operating temperature of -40°C to 60°C, short circuit, over voltage, input under voltage protection and built in thermal shutdown. A UL94-V0 level plastic case protects the driver and they are UL 8750 rated.
