Impact to customers

eldoLED offers several drivers to substitute the discontinued drivers detailed in this notice.  The following section details substitute driver information.


The discontinued drivers feature an auxiliary power output that was designed to support the SynJet® LED Cooling Device.  As LED technology has improved, this device has become obsolete.  Consequently, eldoLED does not offer a direct substitute driver with the auxiliary output feature.  However, if your application does not require the auxiliary output, please see the table below for substitute driver information.

Certification information

  • All recommended substitute drivers are in UL file E333135
  • The transition to the substitute drivers requires UL recertification at the luminaire level.  The manufacturer of the end-use application luminaire must make the final decision / judgment on what additional testing is necessary.
