New EFORE LED Driver Packs Unrivalled Flexibility into a Form Factor Still Smaller than A Business Card


13 February - Osimo, Italy - Today at Strategies in Light in Long Beach, California, EFORE will introduce the newest member of their LED Driver family. EFORE’s STRATO EVO is the first LED Driver that incorporates the lighting industry's most desirable features into single power module. There are other LED drivers that are compact, programmable, offer multiple dimming options, a wide output voltage range, or PF and THD performance that enables Energy Star and DLC fixture approvals and California Title 24 compliance. EVO is the only driver series that packs all of these highly desirable features into a single solution.

STRATO EVO is a 40 W LED Driver series that gives LED lighting fixture manufactures a simple driver solution that replaces up to 28 current models, lowering inventory risks and easing fixture design-in across a broad range of applications. With the wireless RFID programmability feature, designers can easily set key output characteristics of single or multiple drivers without the need to power them on, or remove them from their packaging, significantly speeding up the manufacturing process.

STRATO EVO’s programmable output current range is the widest on the market, offering adjustability from 150mA to 1400mA, depending on model. Additional programmable features include fade time setting, multiple dimming mode settings (0-10V with DTO, DALI, PWM and push/step), constant light output (DALI only) and NTC 100k/10kΩ.

Other notable features include:

  • Wide input range: 120/220-240/277 VAC
  • PF > 0.9, THD < 20%
    • 120 VAC: 30-100% load
    • 240 VAC: 50-100% load
    • 277 VAC: 60-100% load
  • Low stand-by power 0.5 W
  • Fast turn on time 300 mS
  • IP64
  • 90°C case
  • Very low dimming 1% @ max current
  • 0-10V with DTO (dim to off)
  • Temperature sense protection for LEDs
  • Programmable via EFORE wired and wireless RFID tools and software

STRATO EVO carries an 8 year warranty under useful life conditions and UL, ENEC, CE, CCC and Class II isolation approvals, making it suitable for worldwide deployment. Production units are available now.
