Aimtec‘s new 8-Watt AMEPR8D-AZ series ac-dc LED Driver series operates with a universal input range of 90- to 264-Vac with 47-440Hz frequency and has options for current dimming through a triac. These power supplies have an input-to-output isolation of 3000Vac, plus continuous short circuit protection, over voltage protection, over load protection, IP67 rating. The operating temperature range is -20 to +80 degrees C (with derating starting at 60 degrees C). Any of the models from the series can be used either with universal input voltage range supply from 90- to 264-Vac or with any of the triac specific voltage ranges: 90- to 135-Vac or 180- to 264-Vac.
The AMEPR8D-AZ series ac-dc LED Drivers come in a cylindrical package with a diameter of 26.5mm and length of 70mm and could be used in retrofit lighting and indoor electrical boxes. These devices have active power factor correction and are specified for power factors of 0.98 at full load and 115-Vac input and 0.95 at full load and 230-Vac input.
These power supplies have linear thermal derating beginning at 60 degrees C and reach a maximum of 20% power at 80 degrees C. Applications for use within rural agricultural, heavy industrial, and other areas or regions which are prone to 'dirty' electrical conditions which could include excessive voltages surges or spikes, and may damage or cause early life failure of product. In this case consideration should be made by the end user to ensure that adequate line or mains surge suppression is installed in front of Aimtec device to ensure the longevity of the products. Samples are available from stock and can be ordered immediately from any of Aimtec's global network of franchised distributors.
