As the LED technology evolves, consumers are reaping benefits in terms of a reduction in monthly energy bills. Saving in energy is the key reason why governments, business, and consumers are making the switch. However, there are other benefits of using dimmable LED drivers for lighting such as better efficiency, longer, convenience, comfort, and safety.
Dimmable LED Drivers
An LED emits light when an electric current is allowed to pass through it. However, it is the LED drivers, electrical devices, which make them work and enhance their reliability, efficiency, and longevity. They also prevent the LEDs from getting damaged by controlling the forward voltage that often changes with temperature.
Very few LED applications make use of the ON/OFF setting. This is because dimming helps to cut down energy consumption. Two methods of dimming are commonly employed. These are the analog and PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation) methods.
Analog dimming involves adjusting the nominal current flowing through the LED by changing voltage. On the other hand, PWM dimming involves the adjustment of the nominal current by high-frequency switch ON and OFF action. Frequency is adjusted to eliminate the flickering effect.

Devtech LED Drivers (DLD)
Devtech’s DLD series dimmable LED drivers are approved by the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) for outdoor lighting applications. These advanced technology LED drivers are highly reliable and efficient as they come with an IP67 rating. They offer excellent performance. Features of the DLD series LED driver include the following:
- Rating: 100 Watts to 150 Watts
- DC voltage output options: 12/24/36/48
- Analog/PWM dimming options
- Higher efficiency
- Protections – OVP/SCP /OTP/OCP
The DLD series dimmable LED drivers from Devtech work stably over a wide range of input AC voltage (100 volts to 300 volts). In addition to handling the fluctuations in AC supply, they offer better efficiency as they come with active power factor correction capability.
Devtech’s DLD series LED drivers have passed all of the stringent test requirements – EMI, EMC, safety, and environmental – as specified by international standards and is also compliant with the technical specifications stipulated by EESL.
Finally, they are best suited for use in LED street lighting, High Bay lighting, and Flood lighting applications.
