In order for certain products within controlled categories, such as electrical and electronic devices, to be legally sold in the European Economic Area, they must bear a CE label, which stands for Conformité Européenne (European Conformity). Products with this label meet environmental, health, and safety standards put into place by European legislation.

Class 2

Class 2 power supplies must meet the National Electric Code (NEC) and Underwriters Laboratories (UL 1310) standards for wiring requirements and power limitations of AC/DC power supplies to minimize shock or fire risks. All Class 2 power supplies must meet the NEC overcurrent protection and wiring sizing regulations. They must be constructed with ‘In-Wall’ rated wiring for permanent installation inside walls or floors, where they may be surrounded by insulation. These wiring requirements help prevent cracking or melting of the wire, which could cause a fire hazard. These power supplies must have a maximum power capacity of 100 VA and cannot exceed a 30 VAC or 60 VDC output, minimizing the risk of electric shock or overheating from excessive currents.

Class II

Class II power supplies must follow the International Electrotechnical Commission IEC 61439-1 design. This code details that Class II power supplies must have two layers of insulation between the user and the internal current-carrying components to protect the user from electrical shock. The initial layer is "basic" insulation. The second double layer is a reinforcement layer that eliminates the need for a protective earth connection (earthing) or a ground connection since the power supply is grounded within the product's casing.

A product that bears an ETL-Certified label has been evaluated by a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL) and meets national product safety standards. An ETL certification is accepted in the U.S. and in Canada.
Products with a Federal Communications Commission (FCC) label meet all requirements and rules set forth by the FCC and won't cause interference with other electronic devices. According to FCC's website, "The Federal Communications Commission regulates interstate and international communications by radio, television, wire, satellite and cable in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and U.S. territories." Products that generate radio frequency (RF) energy, such as RF remote controls and certain LED light bulbs, are tested to ensure that they are within the FCC's guidelines and limits and do not cause harmful interference.
Underwriters Laboratories (UL) LLC is an independent testing agency that works to verify product safety and quality. A UL-Listed label means that product samples have been tested by UL and that the product meets their Standards for Safety requirements.
Underwriters Laboratories (UL) LLC is an independent testing agency that works to verify product safety and quality. A UL-Recognized label ensures that a product component, such as a power supply or LED light strip, has been tested and verified as safe to use in a UL-Listed product. UL-Listed product samples are tested by UL and meet their Standards for Safety requirements.

This product meets California Energy Commission (CEC) Title 20 requirements and is registered in their Modernized Appliance Efficiency Database System (MAEDbS).

CEC California Title 20 mandates that consumer products sold in the state meet specified energy efficiency standards, aiming to reduce energy consumption and promote environmental sustainability. Manufacturers must ensure their products consume less energy while maintaining or improving performance compared to less efficient models to comply with these regulations.

What Does an LED Driver Do?

An LED driver supplies regulated power to LED lights to provide protection against voltage spikes, short circuits, flickering, and overheating. Unlike fluorescent and HID lights that use ballasts to regulate current, LED drivers are specifically designed to meet the unique power requirements of LED technology. There are three main types of drivers: constant voltage power supplies, constant current drivers, and emergency backup drivers. 

 

All LEDs require a driver, however, some LED lights have integrated drivers that do not need to be replaced. The most common types of lights that require external drivers are strip lights, troffer lights, flat panel lights, and retrofit fluorescent replacement lights. If the lifetime of your LED driver is shorter than your life fixture, you may need to replace the driver if it fails.

Types of LED Drivers

Constant Voltage Power Supply

A constant-voltage power supply is designed to provide a stable output voltage regardless of changes in the load or input voltage. These power supplies will supply an output current up to their maximum rating based on the requirements of the products they are powering. A constant-voltage power supply is needed when an electronic or LED light requires a different voltage than what is supplied by the mains. These power supplies are most commonly used with LED strips.

Constant Current Driver

A constant-current driver regulates and maintains a steady current within a specific voltage range. Since LEDs are current-driven devices, they require a specific operating current to operate properly. Some drivers can lower and adjust the output voltage if needed. Constant current drivers are most commonly needed when the existing driver has failed or if you are manufacturing a device and need to drive an LED array directly.

Emergency Backup Driver

An emergency backup driver is designed to provide power to LED fixtures during a power outage. These drivers feature a battery backup that charges during normal operation and switches to battery power when the main power supply fails. This ensures that essential lighting remains operational in emergency situations. Emergency backup drivers are required in commercial applications where the building code requires emergency egress lighting.

High-Performance LED Driver Features

Dimmable

To ensure your lighting system can have full dimming capabilities, choose an LED driver that is compatible with the dimming type of your light and any existing switches. A dimmable LED driver allows for the adjustment of brightness to create different atmospheres and save money on energy costs. DiodeDrive carries power supplies that are compatible with the following dimming types: 0-10V, PWM, TRIAC, and Potentiometer dimming.

Waterproof

Choosing waterproof and weatherproof power supplies ensures that all parts of your lighting system remain protected against water intrusion. Waterproof drivers are suitable for wet locations and outdoor applications where you need to convert high-voltage AC power into low-voltage DC power.

Enclosed

There are various enclosure options available for LED drivers. Enclosed drivers with a built-in junction box provide a clean, professional-looking way to store your power supplies while ensuring that no wires are touched.

High Input Voltage

DiodeDrive’s high-performance LED drivers are available in a wide range of input voltage options, including up to 347 VAC. This makes our power supplies suitable for various high-power commercial applications.

How Do I Choose The Right Driver?

If you notice that your LED lights are flickering, dimming unexpectedly, or not lighting up at all, it may be time to replace the LED driver, especially if the driver has a shorter lifespan compared to the LED chips themselves. When choosing an LED driver, consider the following specifications:

  • Output Voltage: Ensure the driver's output voltage matches the requirements of your LED fixtures. The most common output voltages for strip lights and light bars are 12V DC or 24V DC, whereas the output voltage for troffers and fluorescent tube replacements can range higher.
  • Output Power: The driver's wattage should be suitable for the total power consumption of your LEDs or electronic devices.
  • Input Voltage: Verify that the driver is rated for the input voltage of the main power line. The most common input voltages are 120 VAC and 240 VAC, but DiodeDrive carries LED drivers with an input voltage ranging up to 347 VAC as well.
  • Output Rated Current: Constant current drivers should supply the appropriate maximum current for your LEDs to prevent overdriving.

Compliance with Safety Standards

DiodeDrive only offers high-quality power supplies that have been checked for quality, durability, and safety. Our products carry a variety of certifications and compliance with various safety standards. Products meeting UL and ETL certifications are certified for safety and installation requirements. Our Class 2 power supplies meet all standards laid out in Article 725 of the NFPA 70 National Electric Code for wiring and power limitations to prevent potential fire hazards. Class II power supplies have all insulation layers required by IEC 61439-1 to protect against electrical shock.
