What are the differences between LED Drivers
Dimmable drivers are specially designed drivers (also known as transformers or dimmers) that are compatible with high voltage dimming. Dimmable drivers, when paired with a compatible dimmer switch, offer the best in dimming performance and elegant control for any of your LED light strip projects.
Dimmable Drivers allow you to control the brightness of your LED light strips with a dimmer switch mounted on your wall - a more elegant and permanent solution than a dial dimmer or remote unit. HitLights Drivers come in three types - Universal, Magnetic, and Electronic
A universal dimmable driver welcomes all types of dimmer switches. HitLights 25 Watt Universal Dimmable Driver is not only our smallest dimmable driver, but it is also the only universal driver. If you have this driver, you can choose ANY dimmer switch rated for LEDs.
If your driver is in a black metal enclosure, chances are it’s a Magnetic dimmable driver. These are the tried-and-true stalwarts of dimmable drivers, and as a bonus, most of them include the knockouts to keep your installation up to code. If you have this driver, not only does your dimmer switch have to be LED compatible, but it also has to be on this list.
Our electronic drivers are slim, and most of them come in a metal enclosure. Most of them are rated IP-67, too, which makes them handy for external applications. If you have this driver, your dimmer switch has to be both LED compatible and also has to be on this list.
S-series or Slim series drivers are very slim profiled drivers (less than an inch thick) which makes them easy to conceal. These drivers are perfect for applications that require dimming but has limited space, example cove lighting and under cabinet lighting. They are compatible with any LED TRIAC dimmer switch.
HitLights has various models of dimmable LED drivers and switches for residential and commercial LED strip lights. The wide range of compatible wall dimmers means that you get to choose the wall dimmer that best suits your home, office, or other building. These drivers are manufactured to our exacting technical specifications here in the United States, meaning that we are able to offer an unsurpassed six-year warranty on most of our units. Our range of Dimmable Drivers is the ultimate solution in any of your LED lighting projects and is compatible with most Lutron and Leviton dimmer switches.
When deciding which one to use for your application, consider the critical factors for you and your business. Work with the heads of various departments to ensure you prioritize the essential needs and compromise where necessary. For example, the finance team might prefer more efficient electrical LED drivers, but the operations manager might like the high output of magnetic drivers.
Sometimes, comparing a specific LED driver for sale against another can make it easier to narrow down your options.
