Helvar launching phase 1 of new 70W LED driver range

Following the international success of the 30W LED driver platform, Helvar is pleased to announce the introduction of the first phase of the 70W LED driver range, scheduled for launch at the end of Q1 2013. This exciting development is another example of Helvar’s continued commitment to supporting luminaire manufacturers in making a successful transition to LED and sits comfortably alongside the wider Helvar family of lighting controls.

The first phase of the 70W LED driver range will see the release of a linear style, single channel 70W LED driver, available as constant current and DALI dimmable. Its slim, linear mechanics makes this product ideally suited for linear and square 600x600 LED luminaires in commercial applications.  The drivers feature a simple resistor input allowing manual adjustment of the output drive current, anticipating different LED loads.

The dimmable DALI versions, which will be available across the entire 70W range, feature smooth and flicker-free dimming performance from 1%-100%. These versions are complemented by Helvar’s successful Digidim router and iDim luminaire based DALI control solutions, allowing for the creation of efficient lighting control solutions for either single room or fully integrated building applications.

Over the course of 2013 Helvar will be doubling its LED product offering, allowing luminaire manufactures to service the market with viable lighting solutions that are able to pass on the energy efficiency benefits that LED can offer specific lighting applications.

Later in the year Helvar will expand its 70W range to include the following:

  • The second phase of the 70W range includes a linear, twin channel, 2x35W LED driver. This product will be suitable for linear luminaire applications where there is a need to share the LED load over two channels, or independently control two different channels.
  • The third and last phase is completed by a compact style, single channel 70W LED driver. Its robust compact shape and strain relief accessory allow the driver to be installed outside of the LED luminaire (in high-bay applications, for example).

The release date for the second and third phase are expected in the second half this year. For more information on the entire range, and Helvar’s wider LED offering, contact your local Helvar representative or visit www.helvar.com.
