LDDS-350HW – LED drivers for track lights from MEAN WELL company

25.01.2024

Track lights are one of the most dynamically developing segments of LED lighting. Such lamps are used in domestic and various premises to create zoned lighting or lighting installations. The key feature of track lamps is the possibility of obtaining a sufficiently long length or a special configuration. The second feature of track lamps is the presence of a common DC power bus (for example, 24 or 48V), which includes separate LEDs (lamps) with their own drivers, which can be used as DC/DC converters of a special oblong shape suitable for placing the driver in the profile of the lamp.

The LDDS-350HW converter is a converter from DC voltage (DC) to DC voltage (DC) of the step-down type, that is, with a decrease from the input voltage level, with current stabilization of 350mA, with a power of up to 45W. The LDDS-350HW LED driver is available in two versions: with remote on/off function (LDDS-350HW), and with dimming function (LDDS-350HWB):

The features of the LDDS-350HW DC/DC converter are a small–sized narrow housing, a wide input voltage range (12-56V DC), the most demanded output current value of 350mA, and high efficiency of 95%. The housing made of slightly combustible plastic and its full filling with silicone improve the properties of heat dissipation during operation, which is one of the key requirements for small-sized lamps, since local overheating does not occur, leading to failure of the LEDs and damage to the lamp itself.

Both modifications of the LDDS-350HW have the same number of pins, which differ in their purpose. The outputs of the DIM+ and DIM-LED driver LDDS-350HW are designed for remote on/off (Remote ON/OFF function):

And the LDDS-350HWB driver has the same DIM+ and DIM-pins designed to control the brightness of the lamp (control the built-in 3-in-1 dimmer) in the following ways:

  • PWM generator (pulse width modulation, frequency 100-1kHz);
  • External 0-10V DC power supply;
  • resistance 0-50kohm (external variable resistor).

The variable parameter is the output current of the converter (Output Current), the brightness level of the LED lamp depends directly proportional to the parameter at the DIM input (PWM fill factor, voltage level, resistance value). For example, the connection diagram and the dependence of the output current on the value of the external resistance:

LDDS-350HW converters are best suited for creating LED lamps and/or installations (for example, LED advertising objects) with controlled brightness and operating time.
