LED Drivers feature 87% Efficiency and Active PFC

MEAN WELL Enterprises Co. Ltd. has introduced a family of 12W/25W LED power supplies with active PFC called the PLM-12/25 series targeted for lower wattage LED lighting systems. Featuring a 110- to 295-Vac input range and constant-current design, both series have four levels of constant current output from 350- to 1050-mA. With a single-stage PFC circuit design the PLM-12/25 series are cost-effective power solutions offering a PF value greater than 0.9. They also comply with harmonic current limitation per EN61000-3-2 Class C and fulfill the general lighting requirements. They feature a no load power consumption <0.5W and start-up time < 500ms, which complies with the ErP regulation required by European Union for lighting fixtures.

PLM-12/25 series deliver up to 87% efficiency enabling them to operate over the temperature range of -30 to +45 degrees (PLM-25) or -30 to +50 degrees C (PLM-12) with only free air convection, fitting into the high-temperature working environments in closed lighting systems. Enclosed by UL 94V-0 rated plastic case and Class II double isolation ac input design (without FG), these units can effectively prevent users from electrical shock. The I/O terminals are designed with screw-less clamp style terminal block, which allows users a more convenient wiring installation.

In addition, full series is built-in short circuit protection function and comply with global lighting certificates per ENEC EN61347-2-13, EN62384, UL8750, CB, and CE, which can greatly guarantee your operation safety. Suitable applications include all kinds of indoor LED lighting, office lighting, commercial lighting, and indoor LED decorative lighting, and so on.
