Espen Technology releases dimming LED drivers for plug-and-play LED tubes at LFI

April 20, 2016
Espen Technology has expanded its line of plug-and-play LED tubes with new dimming and non-dimming constant current LED drivers. The RetroFlex Instant Start Dimming Driver has enhanced performance with 0-10V continuous dimming, all the way down to 10% lumen output. Both the dimming and non-dimming drivers work with Espen’s 2’, 3’, 4’, and U-bend plug-and-play LED tubes.

"The new Retroflex drivers have been great for LED tube projects where the utility rebates require a new driver. The dimming driver provides additional value and helps to meet California Title 24 requirements," said John Clancy, VP of Sales at Espen. Clancy added, "These RetroFlex drivers provide a simple cost-effective solution."

Both the dimming and non-dimming LED drivers are offered in 2-lamp and 4-lamp versions. They operate Espen RetroFlex LED tubes that are between 8 – 17W each, and the constant current drivers accept 120/277V. The new drivers are UL listed for type 1 outdoor, dry or damp locations.

Clancy commented, “It is the combination of instant start, high efficiency, and 0-10V dimming down to 10% lumen output that makes these drivers important new linear lighting solutions for commercial markets.” The new RetroFlex Drivers will be shown at Espen Technology’s LightFair booth #4155, April 26-28, in San Diego, CA.
