Thomas Research Products eliminates step-down transformers for luminaires with new 277-480V LED drivers

March 12, 2015

Elgin, Illinois -- Thomas Research Products has introduced new 277-480V LED drivers with 96W output. This eliminates the need for step-down transformers inside luminaires. Thomas Research Products is a leading manufacturer of SSL power solutions.

New PLED96W-HV series LED drivers are based on TRP's high performance PLED96W series models. Providing flicker-free output, these drivers are perfect for high wattage indoor or outdoor LED luminaire designs. Available in constant-current, dimmable, and constant-voltage versions, the new high voltage LED drivers work on any mains from 277-480Vac. This makes them perfect for 347V applications.

The driver design is robust enough that it also qualifies for hazardous locations. These models are Type HL rated by UL. Even though not all applications require this rating, it provides OEMs assurance that these drivers will perform in a variety of environments. TRP's new drivers offer the same features as their regular PLED drivers, including Black Magic Thermal Advantage(TM) aluminum enclosures. They are IP66, rated for dry and damp locations. These drivers come with the company's standard 5 year warranty. All LED drivers from TRP offer high quality, long life, high efficiency and are cost-competitive. Information can be found on the company's website now. Availability of the PLED96W-HV series begins during 2Q 2015.
