LED drivers on Sydney Harbour Bridge

One of the most iconic sites in Australia is the Sydney Harbour Bridge, and it puts on its best show at night.

Of course, what you cannot see is the numerous power supplies that are used to power all those LEDs.  

However, if you ever get to do the Sydney BridgeClimb you may notice a MEAN WELL HLG-150H-24 every 5 meters or so.

MEAN WELL LED drivers are world renowned for their reliability. In fact, the HLG series LED drivers come with a 7-year manufacturer's warranty. 

They also have an ingress protection rating of IP67, which means they are resistant to dust and moisture ingress. Very important on the Harbour Bridge.  

Saying that, no LED driver should be mounted in direct sunlight. This can cause the temperature inside the power supply to exceed the rated working temperature stipulated in the data sheet. This is likely to cause the LED driver to fail prematurely. Such failures are not covered by the warranty. 

The rugged metal enclosure means they are highly resistant to knocks and bumps, so are well suited to areas where it is not possible to lock the power supply away in a cabinet. 

If you are looking for a robust, reliable LED driver for your lighting project the HLG series LED drivers could be the perfect solution.
