Once used as a method for dimming fluorescent lighting, the development of LED lighting technology has made 0-10v dimmable LED drivers an essential item. We’re very pleased to offer this high-quality range of products from top brands such as Ecopac. This driver range is a perfect way for you to safely regulate the power being sent to your LED tapes to get full dimming functionality. A low voltage dimming driver is an extremely helpful device which we’re sure you’ll be interested in. Here’s all you need to know.
What is A 0-10v LED Dimming Driver?
A 0-10v dimmable LED driver is designed to regulate the amount of power being transferred into a strip of LED lights. By being able to regulate and adjust this power you unlock the capability to dim and switch up the brightness of your LEDs. This can really help you set the tone of your environment with your ability to change up the ambience of the light to suit the occasion or simply just time of day. Whilst some LED setups require a separate dimming module, these drivers have dimming capability included.
The main added benefit of using a 0-10v dimmable driver is that it gives you even more control over your LED light strips. Many of these driver devices allow the brightness to be adjusted from 0-100% so you can regulate the brightness of light all the way from high intensity to being completely off. This can allow the LED lighting to be more flexible and functional as you can manually set the brightness of the bulbs to suit you. Here are some more features of the 0-10 voltage driver that are worth knowing about:
- Built-in PFC Function – PFC (power factor correction) works to enhance the efficiency and quality running of the driver. This can not only help with the electrical energy consumption (and therefore cost) but can reduce the load on the driver preserving the product’s lifespan. This means it can run efficiently even when used for a prolonged amount of time.
- Cooling by Free Air Convection – keeping electrical equipment cool is a vital part of ensuring it runs smoothly and efficiently. With your dimmable driver being cooled and cared for by free air convection you can have peace of mind that overheating can be avoided. With this protective feature, you can ensure that the driver will run smoothly without requiring additional ventilation.
The combination of these two features ensures consistent performance when running. You can be assured that the driver works to protect itself from overheating or overloading during use. A sign of a poor 0-10 LED driver is that the lighting may visually flicker when the brightness is being adjusted; be assured that this is not a factor that you will see when using a driver purchased from ArcLED!
Remember that if you are considering a setup with dimming capabilities, then you will need to check that the LED strip you have purchased (or are looking to purchase) is able to handle the varying current that will be used to regulate the brightness. You should also consider picking an LED controller that will be able to help you act upon what the 0-10-volt LED driver can do. Make sure you pick up a LED controller that is able to successfully help you dim your lights via a remote controller or even through a wall panel.
