Low cost 3W and 6W LED-Driver with constant current supply in ultra compact design

RECOM announces the release of an extension to their range of isolated AC/DC-LED-Drivers with constant current-output in 3 to 6 Watt power supply.

Advances in LED technology require low power of 1W or 3W for LED-illumination. The two new families meet the growing demand for low cost drivers below the previously available products with 12W, 20W, 30W and 60W power. With an input voltage range of 90 to 264AC the new drivers can be used universally on all networks worldwide.

The RACD03 can drive three 1W LEDs with 350mA or single 3W LED with 700mA constant current. … Read More → "Low cost 3W and 6W LED-Driver with constant current supply in ultra compact design"
