At PLASA/09, a number of exciting new products will be showcased at the eldoLED booth (1-F46):
* ECOdrive, POWERdrive and LINEARdrive Series:
highly integrated and enclosed constant current and direct voltage controlled LED driver/controllers featuring an intuitive user interface and a wide input voltage range for networked (DMX/DALI/0-10V) or standalone indoor LED lighting applications. A high-power demokit featuring Luminus' newest PhlatLight® SBM-160 LEDs shows the functionality of a customized ECOdrive.
* eldoLED PowerPIX 530:
a 5m string of 30 high-power 5W RGBW LED pixels, suited for a broad application area ranging from distributed general lighting to pixelated solutions.
* UK wall mount set for DimWheel & upcoming feature upgrade for DimWheel Colour:
a kit of parts which allows the DimWheel to be fitted to standard UK sized back boxes, providing a neat solution ready for use in a range of simple LED lighting control applications. The upcoming feature upgrade for the DimWheel encompasses show functionality.
* 12V AC LED driver technology:
eldoLED introduces its 12V AC LED driver technology, which is primarily used in halogen lamp replacement (MR16), pool and landscape lighting.
For more details regarding the abovementioned products, see below:
eldoLED ECOdrive, POWERdrive and LINEARdrive
ECOdrive, POWERdrive and LINEARdrive are 4-channel, DMX/DALI/0-10V compatible, constant current and constant voltage LED driver/controllers that are easily configured over their intuitive, 3-button user interface with display. The LED current of the constant current versions - ECOdrive and POWERdrive - can be set in 50mA steps from 200mA up to 1.4A, making them a perfect fit for practically all LED brands. The enclosed LED drivers offer high power outputs (POWERdrive: up to 180W), robust thermal management, smooth dimming, fine colour mixing and warm white/cool white mixing, and feature user-definable show sequences.
eldoLED PowerPIX 530
The eldoLED PowerPIX 530 is a custom development, with which eldoLED shows its commitment to be a driving force behind the adoption of high-power LED technology in RGBW LED applications.
The eldoLED PowerPIX 530 is a string of 30 high-power 5W RGBW LED pixels for dynamic colour applications. The pixels are individually controllable over DMX and have a flexible pitch, giving you the freedom to create the perfect interpixel distance for your application.
What sets the eldoLED PowerPIX 530 apart from similar technologies/applications is the fact that it is a crossover offering general lighting as well as dynamic colour capabilities. Also, its high power output per pixel makes it possible for e.g. media facades to be as visible during the day as they are after nightfall. Thanks to its robust thermal design, the eldoLED PowerPIX 530 can be used both free air and mounted onto a structure or heat sink.
UK wall mount set for DimWheel & upcoming feature upgrade for DimWheel Colour
At PLASA/09, eldoLED will introduce the UK wall mount set for the eldoLED DimWheel: a kit of parts which allows the DimWheel to be fitted to standard UK sized back boxes, providing a neat solution ready for use in a range of simple LED lighting control applications.
The DimWheels are standard-sized wall-mounted dimmers for LED drivers and DMX-compatible luminaires and offer one-button control for on/off, dimming and colour mixing. The DimWheels’ 15-bit resolution guarantees smooth brightness control and extremely fine colour mixing, making the DimWheel the perfect digital LED dimmer. Intuitively pressing and turning the rotary knob on the dimmer lets you turn the light off or on, accurately set a dimming level or choose a hue and saturation level.
In addition to the excellent dimming and colour control, the DimWheel Colour will have a feature update in the fourth quarter of 2009: it will offer two show modes as well, broadcast and chase. Also, you will be able to set the speed of your show, connect an external switch to run multiple show sequences, and define and upload custom shows yourself with the eldoLED TOOLbox and freely available PC software.
12V AC LED driver technology
With the introduction of its 12V AC LED driver technology, which is primarily used in halogen lamp replacement (MR16), pool and landscape lighting, eldoLED shows its strength as a developer of LED drivers. Its 12V AC driver technology offers:
High efficiency: 85% typical at 12V AC, 92% typical at 12V DC
The higher the efficiency, the more light is produced with a certain amount of power, or the same amount of light can be produced using less power and at lower temperatures.
High power factor: 0.8
The higher an LED driver’s power factor, the less power is “thrown away” in the form of apparent power. Less apparent power is more environmentally friendly, and plays an important role in rebate programs offered by US and UK power plants. Both power factor and efficiency levels are important Energy Star program requirements for solid-state lighting luminaires.
High-quality eldoLED 12V AC driver/controllers:
* have a flicker-free light output: the LEDs are 100% on during the full line cycle
* are compatible with standard household dimmers and allow extremely smooth dimming down to 0.5%
* allow an input voltage range of 11-15V AC or 11-18V DC, an LED forward voltage range of 6.2-10V and an LED current of up to 0.8-1A
* are designed for operation at high temperatures (-20°C to +95°C)
* have a small form factor making them a perfect fit for the smallest of halogen lamp fixtures
* are prepared for sensor input or tunable white operation
