RECOM Electronic has released its new buck/boost LED driver, which the company has developed to deliver high voltages from lower voltage source. The new product hopes to simplify lighting systems with the use of a single driver and a long single string of LEDs.

The new RBD-12 series supplies LEDs from 3 to 20 watts with input voltages from 8 to 36V providing constant currents of 350mA or 500mA. The output voltage can be above or below the supply voltage by a factor 2 (500mA) or by a factor 3 (350mA), within the range from 2 to 40VDC. These new buck/boost models are digital (PWM + Remote On/Off) and analog dimmable and cover the temperature range -40C to +75C. Dimensions are 32.6 x 16.6 x 11.1mm (L x W x H), and weigh only 13g. Depending on the application the drivers can be supplied with wires or with standard pins for PCB mounting.

Buck/boost drivers such as the RBD-12 series are ideal for mobile, solar and battery driven LED-systems for transport and traffic applications (i.e. mobile homes, E-cars, street lighting, traffic signs, etc.) as well as for use in marine and air traffic lighting C that is wherever universal, long life LED-supplies are a must. They comply with all relevant safety standards such as EN/UL60950-1 and carry a 5 year warranty.
