Tridonic Introduces New 35 W, 50 W and 75 Watt LED Programmable Drivers for Commercial and Hospitality Lighting Applications

Low Profile Drivers for Spotlights, Downlights, Floor-Wall and General Illumination now Available for North American Market

Dornbirn, Austria, December 11, 2017. Tridonic, a leading global provider of smart and efficient lighting solutions, today introduced to the North American market new constant current, programmable, LED drivers in the excite (EXC) product series. These new Linear low profile drivers include 35 W, 50 W and 75 W ranges for Linear, recessed or suspended mounted and multi-head recessed lighting luminaires designed for use with Tridonic’s SLE modules that offer a range of color temperatures and lighting qualities, ideal for use in commercial, retail and hospitality applications. 

The new excite series of led drivers are UL Class P Listed and are 0-10 V dimmable and can be tailored to applications using different control systems with different native dimming curves, yielding greater luminaire confidence and providing OEM design flexibility. The output of these drivers may be adjusted with the use of a ready2mains programmer or I-select 2 plugs for greater programming flexibility.

Tridonic, being a wholly owned subsidiary of the Zumtobel Group, is listed as one of the handful of qualified component suppliers of the Philips SSL Licensing program. For more details about the program and its exact terms and conditions please go to the Philips SSL Licensing program website.

Additionally, since these drivers have a Class P UL listing they provide further value to lighting manufacturers who may use them with their luminaire designs without the need to resubmit for UL testing and recertification, thereby reducing their product development time, cost and risk. Tridonic’s world class design allows up to 90 percent efficiency, higher ambient temperature limits and have an industry leading lifetime up to 100,000 hours backed by a 5-year product and performance guarantee. These drivers are now commercially available world-wide.

To add further confidence for luminaire manufacturers, these drivers will reduce incompatibility issues with lighting control systems, as the Tridonic drivers may be tuned to the specific dimming curves supplied by various controls companies. Tridonic’s ready2mains programmer allows OEMs to tune their required drive currents, program their dimming curve preferences and lock out future changes by unauthorized users.
