Hawthorne, California-based Fulham Co., a global manufacturer and supplier of energy efficient lighting systems, announces that its Class P LED drivers have been listed by Underwriters Laboratories, giving luminaire manufacturers a standardized platform for the testing and evaluation of LED drivers.
With this UL certification, luminaire manufacturers can develop new products using Fulham’s Class P drivers and reduce cost and shorten time-to-market by virtually eliminating compliance testing, according to the company.
With this type of UL certification, Fulham can now offer manufacturers Class P LED drivers that can be used as alternates in their products without the need for extensive compliance retesting. Fulham’s first UL listing is for its constant current, 60W LED driver with outputs available from 700mA to 1600mA with 0-10V dimming. Additional LED drivers are expected to be listed in the near future.
UL is the first Standards Development Organization to offer a Class P Driver program for LEDs. The program provides guidelines for evaluation and driver testing with ratings for standardized LED construction.
Fulham is only the second LED manufacturer to meet the UL standards for Class P driver listing, the company says.
