Amperor LED power supplies help to solve the LED blinking issue

Date Announced: 18 Aug 2008

Dimming Modules Make Your LED Application Blink?

When installing a dimming module into an LED application, such as LED lighting or LED signs, system developers might be surprised to find that the LEDs, which used to work fine, suddenly begin to blink / flicker.

Amperor's LED power supplies have been developed to eliminate this issue in LED applications. The Amperor LED power supply's internal start-up sequence is fine-tuned to handle both capacitive and inductive loading conditions thereby eliminating any problems with LED flashing, flickering or blinking.

Frequently, this blinking / flickering issue is caused by a mismatched design between the LED application and the LED power supply. Due to the multitude of different LED applications, some will exhibit capacitive loading and some will have inductive properties while others will act like purely resistive loads. Additionally, the PWM On/Off control circuitry employed in some of the dimming modules might add a capacitive and / or inductive component to the overall LED system. If a power supply designed for purely resistive loads is used in these type of LED applications, the addition of the dimming module will have a greater chance to interfere with the internal start-up sequence of the power supply and cause the LEDs blink or flicker.

The use of Amperor's unique LED power supplies with many popular off-the-shelf dimming modules will result in a smooth linear flicker-free dimming operation. Amperor's LED power supplies will guarantee you dazzling worry-free results that will also help to prolong the life of your LED systems.
