Harvard Technology launches pioneering programmable driver range

Harvard Technology, world leader in the design, development and manufacture of energy efficient lighting solutions, has unveiled the latest innovation in the CoolLED range, a ground-breaking range of programmable LED drivers.

The new programmable LED drivers range provides complete freedom to control the output power of an LED driver in any configuration, with drive current programming in 1mA step increments and smooth dimming options.

High performing and feature rich, the LED programmable driver range offers unparalleled efficiencies whilst also excluding the need to carry multiple variants as stock items.

Available in three driver footprints, the CLX, CLK and CLS, the range is suitable for a wide range of applications. Uniquely, the revolutionary drivers can have the current programmed via the hardware, or the software for faster more accurate flexible currents.

The low profile software and RFID programmable CLX driver is initially available in 40W and 50W DALI variants. A highly efficient design provides fully isolated SELV output, low output ripple and can fully support dimming from 100% to 1%.

Suitable for a wide range of applications and fixture types, the CLK analogue software programmable driver delivers up to 33W of power and is initially available as 220-240V and 120V variants.

The software programmable CLS linear driver is one of the most compact linear drivers on the market, measuring just 21mm in height. Fully compatible with the Harvard Technology Linear LED light engine range, the driver delivers up to 50W of power and is offered in 700mA and 1400mA variants.

Tim McKernan, head of OEM Sales, Northern Europe at Harvard Technology said, “We are extremely proud of our new programmable LED driver range, which not only offers a high performance solution but also enables a level of programmability that has not previously been obtainable. The range also outperforms the competition in terms of programming time, delivers substantial savings and has a high efficiency design, which ensures cool operation and long life. By providing the CLK, CLX and CLS programmable drivers, we have enabled customers to standardise one driver configurable on their production line, suitable for all types of LED fixtures under 500 lumens to over 4000 lumens.”

All Harvard Technology’s LED Solutions are designed, developed and manufactured in the UK and come with a five-year warranty.
