Dimmable LED Drivers
MEAN WELL Australia probably has the most comprehensive range of dimmable LED drivers available with Australian approvals.
There are 4 questions you need to ask yourself in order to select the correct dimmable LED driver:
Do I need a constant voltage driver or constant current LED driver?
This will be determined by the LED light fitting itself. Some require the current output of the driver to remain constant at all times, others require the output voltage to remain constant at all times. The LED driver ensures the correct output is maintained, even if there are fluctuations in the 240VAC power supply.
What power output do I need?
Be sure you know what voltage (V) or current (mA) output is required to drive your LED light fitting and also what is the minimum power output (watts) required.
Where is the LED driver going to be mounted?
Do you need an LED driver for mounting inside a ceiling space, or do you need a weather-proof driver that can be exposed to the elements? Either way MEAN WELL Australia has a dimmable LED driver to suit.
Finally, what type of dimming controller is being used in the installation?
Different types of dimming controllers have different type of dimming signal outputs. You will need a dimmable LED driver that is compatible with this signal. So, check what type of signal your controller uses. The most common are:
PWM Signal DALI
Push Button Dimming AC Phase Cut
MEAN WELL has dimmable LED drivers that are compatible with all of these options.
