Fulham introduces New DALI Lighting Control
At Lightfair International 2017, Fulham Co., a well known supplier of lighting components and electronics for commercial and specialty applications, displayed its new family of WorkHorse LED Extreme constant current, programmable drivers specifically designed for outdoor and high-power applications, including new support for Digital Addressable Lighting Interface (DALI) lighting controls. The new WorkHorse LED Extreme Drivers with DALI are the first Fulham products to be introduced following the acquisition of Control Network Solutions (CNS), the UK-based creator of the elitedali smart lighting control and management system. With the addition of support for the DALI lighting communications standard, the WorkHorse LED Extreme drivers now support remote commissioning and control as well as intelligence and programmability. The WorkHorse LED Extreme is an IP65 compliant driver designed specifically to operate in harsh environments such as outdoor parking lots, for street lighting, and outdoor commercial lighting. Adding DALI support provides centralised control of dimming and other lighting characteristics.
The WorkHorse LED Extreme Drivers with DALI have the widest output current/voltage range available in the market, programmable in 1mA increments. The output current and dimming PAGE 2 OF 3 curve are fully programmable using Fulham’s SmartSet software, with expanded dimming capability using the DALI dimming protocol.
The WorkHorse LED Extreme Drivers with DALI are available in linear and compact form factors. The units support universal input voltage from 120V to 277V, 50-60Hz. Products support universal voltage input, for operation around the world. The WorkHorse LED Extreme drivers also have 6kV of internal surge protection and come with a five-year warranty.
