The new EUCO-2.1kW LED drivers are designed for today’s customer requirements for IoT connectivity and high energy efficiency.”

The EUCO-2.1kW LED drivers consist of three programmable independent output channels with a max output power of 700 W/channel. The driver is capable of achieving a very low peak-to-peak current ripple (<1%), which allows high-resolution TV broadcasting of sports events. Energy conservation is also boosted by its 97% energy efficiency. In addition, it features a wide operating temperature (-40°C ~ 50°C) and achieve a rated IP66 to ensure a suitable operation for the most rugged environments applications.

The drivers also offer a 200-metre remote control function. Traditionally, LED drivers are placed on high masts, making it difficult to setup, maintain and replace. With the remote control function that allows a 200-metre distance between the driver and the luminaire, the driver can be installed on the ground to support safe installation and easy maintenance.
