Inventronics Introduces Next Generation Platform, IP66/IP67 LED Driver Family with UL Class P

Inventronics recently introduced an entirely new family of programmable, IP66/IP67 LED drivers designed with a next-generation platform. They provide OEMs with even more design flexibility with UL Class P, a more compact housing, and industry-leading surge protection.

The EUM-DT family is designed with the latest, next-generation platform equipped with an enhanced transformer design, optimized components that provide lower costs without sacrificing quality or performance, and a new design methodology to support a warranty Tc of 80ºC.  They are highly reliable, and their robust protection allows for longer lifetimes up to 106,000 hours.

Each series provides a multi-layer of protection, which includes over-voltage, over-temperature, and short circuit protection.  Utilizing a new proprietary circuit, the drivers are still able to maintain industry-leading surge protection of 6kV (differential mode) and 10kV (common mode) while passing typical hipot testing for luminaires without any secondary operation. The rugged, extruded-metal housing, which utilizes a proprietary encapsulation process, is IP66 and IP67 rated and specially designed to operate in demanding applications such as high bay, high mast, and roadway lighting.

The EUM-DT family also allows for extreme design flexibility. They are UL Class P Listed, providing the freedom of substitution without new testing and bring your products to market faster. Their programmable interface and constant-power operation allow for in-house customization to achieve optimal results and various current configurations without the need for powering on the driver.  They offer three constant-power, programmable series delivering 150W up to 240W at output currents from 700mA to 6700mA with more power levels scheduled for release soon.

Their ultra-compact design is smaller than the previous generation Inventronics drivers, allowing them to fit inside a multitude of luminaires.  The EUM-DT family supplies improved safety with a wide range of isolated dimming options to remain compliant with all standards including the new UL May 2020 requirements. These dimming controls include isolated 1-5V, 1-10V, PWM and multiple timers.  Production quantities of the EUM-150SxxxDT, EUM-200SxxxDT, and EUM-240SxxxDT are available now.
