Brightworks Technology, Inc. announces its new development initiative to produce reliable, efficient, compact and water-resistant AC/DC LED drivers for demanding outdoor, architectural lighting, signage, and horticulture applications.
After more than a year of market research and industry feedback, the first product line from the new initiative is the Silverback series of LED drivers, which will be available for customer beta testing beginning the second quarter of 2019. The new product family will initially consist of five basic models, will be IP67 rated (withstand up to 1 meter of immersion in water for approximately 30 minutes) and will deliver output power ranging from 160W to 600W with typical full load efficiency of 93%. Several of the constant current models will also feature 0-10V dimming. With 90V-305Vac input or 180V-528Vac input, the models can meet single-phase input or three-phase configurations.
The Silverback series will feature a mix of constant current and constant voltage regulated single output voltages. Some models will feature dimmable output currents, and others will provide current sharing. The Silverbackfamily will also have excellent electrical and thermal performance using enhanced circuit design, state-of-the-art semiconductor controls, patented magnetics, and optimized component placements. In addition, the Silverback LED drivers are designed to meet EN62368 and UL8750 safety requirements.
Design engineers working on LED fixtures requiring power from 160W to 600W are invited to apply to be part of the Silverback beta test initiative. For more information, contact Brightworks at 858-275-6423 orwww.brightworks-usa.com.
