The LED light major market focus on consumer electronics (i.e. LED TV, mobile phone, handset,…), automobile (LED headlamps, fog lamps, turn signals, brake lights,…) and public service (LED traffic light, street light,…) in the beginning, now expand to home and office lighting market (replace incandescent and fluorescent) very quickly. Everybody knows home and office is a huge market, LED lighting successfully penetrate into these market invite many investors to put more resources to LED industry. How to be the winner of LED industry, besides LED itself quality and cost, LED power driver is the most important part of LED lighting.
LED is a current driven device, in order to increase its brightness, several or several decades LED serial or parallel cascade connection are normal types, LED driver is a DC current source transferred from utility AC power source to support LED lighting. As a LED power supply, efficiency is the most important factor, more efficiency, less waste power, less heat sink, and prolong LED light life. How to increase the LED driver efficiency is the LED driver suppliers important objective, the trend is to increase the working voltage, lower working current, save copper usage. Besides efficiency, total LED light power consumption must be lower, dimming according to environmental condition is a good alternative to save LED power, so LED driver must be a current source supplier, but also a dimming controller.
Almost all power supply manufactures invest resources to develop LED driver, no one will be absent in this growing big market, compare to traditional power supply fixed voltage market, LED driver is not a fixed voltage, its Vo will be a variable value according to Vd and Rd of LED, LED DC electronic load simulator is absolutely needed to verify and test LED driver in R&D, production line, QA stage.
Prodigit announce new 3340F series LED DC electronic load simulator, including 3340F (300V/2A/150W), 3341F (100V/20A/300W), and 3342F (500V/2A/300W), they can simulate real LED characteristics to drive the LED driver, user only need to key in some LED parameters (include Vd forward bias voltage, Rd serial resistance, Vo output voltage,…). No more need to connect real LED to LED driver to do the test, user can also easily edit these parameters to simulate different LED numbers, specifications, and suppliers. 3340F series also provide source for dimming test, analog voltage from 0 to 10V, or frequency from 0 to 1KHz, duty cycle from 0 to 100% signal, they are second to none for LED driver verification and test equipments.
