Some of the latest technologies from element14’s electromechanical product portfolio include:
· Features Crydom’s thermal management technology and unique integrated heat sink that allow the board to effectively dissipate considerable amount of heat.
· Compact 11 and 18 mm wide IP20 housing.
· Carefully designed for quick and easy installation onto any standard 35mm DIN rail profile, the board can be paired with high output power ratings.
· 70,000 hours of operating lifetime, reducing the hassle of regular replacement or maintenance.
· Features both screw terminal and socket output connections, which enable engineers to avoid the possibility of miswiring and damaging the LED load if the LEDs are preassembled into a wiring harness or lamp fitting with a mating plug.
· Can be applied in a wide selection of devices, including indoor lighting, fluorescent replacement and Cree MPL applications.
· Optimum performance with minimum energy consumption, allowing the component to function without a dedicated power supply, and optimise energy usage design.
· Integrated Controller is fitted with an open drain fail safe alarm output. This alarm is activated if a fan fail is detected or if the upper temperature limit is reached.
· When the alarm condition is activated, the fan will be run at full speed, thus cooling the device and preventing or limiting any damage from overheating.
