Ready2mains Tells Current How To Communicate
The PREMIUM TALEXXdriver series from Tridonic has been designed to keep pace with rapid developments in LED technology and offers an extremely high degree of flexibility. It features the new digital “ready2mains” interface which uses the existing mains cable for data transfer. Different casing versions and output classes with application-optimised operating ranges make the LED Drivers ideal for a wide range of professional LED solutions.
Luminaire manufacturers, electrical contractors and potential users all benefit from the features of this new LED Driver series. TALEXXdrivers in the PREMIUM series can adapt to different lighting requirements with a high degree of flexibility either via the familiar one4all interface or via the digital ready2mains communications interface. This new interface enables digital data, such as configuration parameters, to be transferred directly by means of the mains cable. Upgrading an existing non-dimmable luminaire installation to the latest dimmable LED generation is made easier with ready2mains as there is no need for any new cabling in the ceiling.
Thanks to ready2mains it is now easy to configure control gear with manually settable output current and integrate it in existing test equipment. The advantages over the old method of setting the current manually are obvious. Data transfer is rapid and much less susceptible to error because no manual operations are required at all. Simple integration in automated workflows results in huge potential cost savings in the production of LED luminaires. Nevertheless, TALEXXdrivers in the PREMIUM series can still be programmed via the DALI interface and manual resistance plugs can still be used.
A choice of compact casing designs – C, SR and SC – means that the most appropriate can be used for each type of luminaire. This is of great benefit, particularly in shop applications where space is often tight. Linear low-profile (lp) designs are ideal efficiency-based office applications. Thanks to their dynamic operating ranges they cover the entire output spectrum with maximum efficiency.
The one4all interface continues to be available and adds DALI, DSI, switchDIM and corridorFUNCTION functionality. Other features include a significant increase in efficiency, low standby losses and reduced dimensions.
The first three products in the PREMIUM series are linear low-profile devices:
LCA 50 W 100-400 mA one4all lp PRE
LCA 75 W 100-400 mA one4all lp PRE
LCA 100 W 250-700 mA one4all lp PRE
