TE Connectivity revealed the LUMAWISE Drive LED Holder Type Z50 – DALI-2 series for chip-on-board (COB) LEDs used in track and spot lighting. The new holder incorporates DC/DC constant current LED driver functionality into a low-profile LED holder helping lighting designers to develop more compact, cost-effective, and better-looking lighting products.
Earlier, most of the LED drivers were housed in a box, often larger than the light fixture itself, mounted to the side of the luminaire and remote from the COB light source which created design and manufacturing complexity because the configuration required wiring between the light source and driver.
The LUMAWISE Drive LED holder Type Z50 – DALI-2 series integrates the driver into the same form factor as TE’s popular 50mm-diameter Zhaga-inspired range of LUMAWISE LED holders for COB LEDs and allow more simplicity and flexibility in lighting design, providing a cost-effective and aesthetically pleasing luminaire.
In addition, TE had previously launched its LUMAWISE Drive LED Holder Type Z50 On/Off series and 0-10V Dimmable series. All configurations are available in 350mA, 500mA, 700mA or 1050mA constant current output and a typical forward voltage of 36VDC.
