Why size matters for LED power supply – SELF LED drivers
Designing a lighting system often requires a degree of compromise due to the size of your fixtures or the available space in the area that is to be lit. Where space is limited, it can be difficult to conceal the LED power supply into the fixture or within the frame, which can impact the overall performance, as well as the appearance, of the whole system.
Choosing the right power supply is as important as selecting your bulbs and fittings, but this can be complicated as it’s not always clear what you’re getting. Choosing an LED driver based on cost alone is a false economy, since a poor quality or incorrectly specified driver will shorten the lifecycle of the whole system and can cause it to fail.
