Constant Current LED Drivers

Active filters

A constant current LED driver is a handy element to have in your LED set up for several reasons. It helps to keep the voltage in your system even as it passes through your LED light strip, ensuring that your lights are protected from being overloaded and keeping the brightness even throughout the strip.

What is a constant current LED driver?

A constant current LED driver is designed to ensure that the voltage stays even throughout your LED strip in order to keep your light level consistent. It is designed to protect against power surges and keep your LED lights even. Without using an LED driver you may experience light flickering due to power fluctuation which can affect the lifespan of your lights. With this easy-to-install LED driver, you will be able to protect against this problem.

The LED driver will also cool using free air convection to help with the excess heat the LED lights produce. Paired with one of our fitted aluminium profiles, you will be able to prevent any problems from dust, human contact, and heat.

How do constant current LED drivers work?

Constant LED drivers work by adjusting the voltage that is being supplied to your LED strip from the power source. They help to ensure the light does not fluctuate by adjusting the voltage levels which in turn also protects your lights from occurrences such as power surges. This means that your LED will be supplied with the correct voltage level.

How do you select constant current LED driver?

There are several factors to consider when selecting your constant current LED driver. The main points are:

The power requirements for your system. Your LED lights are likely to be either 12v or 24v LEDs so make sure to choose a LED driver that can support your system.

Whether you require a dimmable function from your LED driver. If you want to still be in control of your light level then a dimmable constant current LED driver will help you to set the lighting to your preferred level while keeping it even in brightness throughout the LED strip.

The IP rating of the LED Driver. Are you setting up your LED lights indoors or outdoors? Is the room you are using them in likely to have some level of water e.g. bathroom, sauna, kitchen?

What is the efficiency rating of the LED driver? At Arc LED our constant power LED drivers are rated between 75% to 80% efficiency so you can rely on them to protect your lighting.

The constant current driver designs are compact so that you can seamlessly fit your driver in with your LED light strip. This allows you to have an uninterrupted aesthetic to keep your LED lighting looking professional and stylish whether you are adding it to your commercial space or home.

Many of the dimmable drivers use TRIAC dimming so are compatible with TRIAC dimmer switches.
