  • Improved flexibility for LED drivers

    LED drivers, essential to the performance of any LED lighting, need to be sufficiently flexible to adapt to different conditions. Markus Rademacher of Tridonic explains how new technologies are helping

    Readers will clearly be aware that at the heart of every LED luminaire is an LED driver and that the most important parameter of the LED driver is the output current. Essentially, in an LED circuit, mains voltage is converted to a constant voltage and the LED driver then converts this to a constant current. This current determines the operating temperature and therefore the lifetime of the luminaire.
