MEAN WELL introduces the LDD-L and LDD-H series of encapsulated module type DC-DC Buck converters for LED driving. With constant current mode output, LDD-L features a 9~36VDC input and 2~32VDC output while LDD-H possesses an even wider range of 9~56VDC input and 2~52VDC output. The LDD series is designed to be mounted on the system PCB of a lighting fixture. Their typical deployment is to connect to the output of CV (constant voltage) mode AC/DC LED power supplies providing a constant current to drive LEDs. For example, a typical LEDRead More
