Training: LED driver technology for lighting specifiers

Lighting technology is challenging, particularly when it comes to LED drivers. That's why eldoLED offers training tailored to lighting designers, architects and other lighting specifiers, covering everything you need to know about driver technology and what it can do for you. This course is delivered by Gé Hulsmans, our Director Specifier Service.


What you'll get

  • An introduction to the basic electrical characteristics of an LED
  • How to dim LEDs smoothly all the way to dark (0.1%)
  • Why traditional PWM dimming doesn't cut it
  • Understanding flicker - including invisible flicker
  • How to specify "flicker-free" light
  • Using lin and log dimming curves to achieve the best possible dimming
  • What about (HD)camera compatibility?
  • Compatibility of LED drivers with LED modules and LED strips
  • Understanding constant current and constant voltage
  • Compatibility of LED drivers with controllers
  • When to specify which lighting protocol control system (DALI, 0-10V/1-10V, DMX, DMX/RDM)...
  • Compatibility with wireless control solutions such as Bluetooth Low Energy (Casambi)


You'll leave with a solid practical understanding of LED driver technology and how to get Quality of Light with it.


If you feel that you or a colleague would benefit from this training, please send an email to Gé will get in touch to discuss the options. We offer this training to specifiers around the world. Face-to-face training formats are available, depending on locations and availability.
