Inventronics releases a new driver family designed specifically for the rugged and harsh environments of horticulture applications. They are cost optimized, non-isolated IP20 LED drivers that are resistant to corrosive sulfurous gases often used in greenhouses. The LNT-350SxxxSTF is also equipped with streamlined components to offer low residual output voltage, industry-leading efficiency, low inrush current and built-in surge protection.
The LNT-350SxxxSTF series is designed to offer users peace-of-mind. Inventronics understands that electrical components can corrode when being exposed to acidic and sulfurous gases over a long period of time. To safeguard against this happening, they implement a conformal coating on the PCBs to help protect the driver and ensure a long operating life. The calculated lifetime of this series is at least 123,000 hours when operating at 80% load with a case temperature of 70˚C. This series is highly reliable and efficient with industry-leading typical efficiency of 96.5% and internal surge protection of 2kV differential mode (DM) and 4kV common mode (CM).
The LNT-350SxxxSTF offers design flexibility supplying the full 350W of power with an adjustable output current from 1050-1500mA via an external resistor. The slim, linear form factor makes it the perfect choice for the more compact and slimmer European luminaires where the standard higher-powered driver may be too large to accommodate.
This series is non-dimming and non-isolated to offer a cost optimized solution for regions and applications that do not require an isolated design. Non-isolated drivers provide a higher efficiency due to a more efficient circuit design which uses fewer energy-consuming magnetic components than typical drivers. The LNT-350SxxxSTF operates from 380-415Vac ±10% and a low residual output voltage <2kV allowing users to utilize common substrate instead of high-level aluminum.
The LNT-350SxxxSTF is approved to ENEC, CE and CB. Production quantities are available now. For a full datasheet, please visit the product page or contact your local Inventronics sales team representative or distributor.
