If you have made the decision to install LED lights into your home or business property, then you will also require an LED power supply. These LED drivers are an essential part of any LED lighting set-up, as they provide your new LED lighting display with the power source required to operate the ultra-bright LED lights.
At Simple Lighting you can find a selection of LED drivers with a range of wattages from 6 to 320 and a variety of waterproof IP67 drivers. Whatever your LED lighting needs, we are sure to have the perfect LED driver to suit your lighting application.
What are LED Drivers?
LEDs is one of the most powerful and energy-efficient light sources for home and commercial lighting plans, but they do require LED drivers in order to operate. LED drivers are specialised devices (also known as an LED power supply) which provides and regulates the electricity needed for your LEDs to function and perform at their optimum.
Why Do I Need an LED Driver?
LED lights are designed to run on a direct current of electricity and require a low voltage (12-24V). However, the standard supply is a high voltage on alternating current. LED drivers convert the high voltage to the specific lower voltage needed for your LED bulbs. At the same time, an LED power supply also allows your lights to function safely by regulating and steadying any fluctuations in the current.
A Word About LED Lights...
LED lights have multiple benefits that make them the preferred choice over traditional fluorescent bulbs, halogen lamps or CFLs for illuminating any property. They are long-lasting and energy-efficient, meaning you can save money while reducing your carbon footprint at the same time.
LEDs are also an excellent choice for those who wish to have flexibility in their lighting plans. They can be used to create a specific ambience, set a mood, or be used in task lighting. Not only that, but with dimmable LED drivers you can also control the brightness of your lighting and save even more energy and money.
Buying an LED Driver
When choosing the right LED power supply for your lighting project, there are a few specifications to be considered:
At Simple Lighting we provide LED drivers designed to handle different maximum loads, which means the maximum Wattage. You can find an LED power supply which supports loads as small as 6Watts or as large as 100 or 200 Watts.
It’s a good idea to choose an LED power supply which is as close as possible to the required wattage of your lights. Your LED drivers should not be used with lights which exceeds the driver’s maximum load. Yet, pairing too low may cause the LEDs to flicker.
If you need further assistance in choosing the right LED power supply and maximum load, then don’t hesitate to get in touch with the Simple Lighting team. Our lighting experts are always on hand to give you the advice you need to select the right product for your particular lighting needs.
Dimmable or Non-dimmable
Our LED power supplies are available in two options – dimmable and non-dimmable. Drivers with a dimming function are ideal for those who wish to get creative with their lighting. Dimming gives you the freedom to choose between bright light for certain tasks or create certain moods and atmospheres in your home or property without having to use different lamps or fixtures. Dimmable LED drivers are also a great option for commercial premises such as restaurants, bars, or retail stores.
Our LED drivers are also available with different IP ratings. IP ratings refer to the type of environment that your LED lights and drivers can be safely used in. For example, if you are installing them in areas where they will be exposed to dust and water, such as a bathroom, then you should LED drivers with IP65 or IP66 rating. Again, if you are unsure which IP rating you need, get in touch and we’ll be happy to help.
