ATLANTA, GA – August 5, 2019 – Luminaire manufacturers’ efforts to deliver consistent, quality light across their luminaire portfolios took a big step forward with the expansion of the eldoLED®
SOLOdrive line with two new 30-Watt drivers
that incorporate DMX compatibility. Now, complete illumination consistency in any space using linear or recessed fixtures is at hand. In addition to ensuring consistent performance between luminaires, OEMs can simplify their supply chain inventory, maintain a uniform configuration and programming environment, and avoid control system compatibility issues.
“Initial and ongoing consistency and uniformity are essential to delivering quality light in a space,” said Chad Stalker, Vice President OEM Sales. “But it’s been difficult to achieve when OEMs have to source drivers from multiple sources to be able to manage the range of control interfaces. eldoLED eliminates this roadblock to quality light with these new DMX compatible drivers. Now, OEMs can deploy eldoLED’s industry-leading DMX driver technology across their entire portfolio and realize superior quality of light performance.”
The new SOLOdrive drivers can be pre-configured with customer start-up and DMX drop levels or luminaire manufacturers can choose from pre-defined options for entertainment and architectural applications. They can also be shipped with pre-programmed RDM IDs so that OEMs do not need to manage configuration. Lastly, eldoLED can deliver the drivers configured for California Title 24 compliance.
In addition to 0-10V, DALI, and DMX control interface support, LEDcode support means that nLight®, nLight® AIR, and BT radio (Casambi) integrations are at hand. Proven driver quality, ease of integration, interoperability, and excellent technical support are now available from one supplier: eldoLED.
