LED drivers have a significant influence on lighting fixtures, from their overall cost to quality and performance.
Until now, a lack of knowledge about their performance impact upon light fixture choice has not been made easier by the difficulty in comparing driver specifications between manufacturers.
What should be clear is that specifying a light fixture supplier requires additional knowledge to avoid missing critical factors from the decision – ones that could play a significant role in the true performance of a luminaire in the field.
It is essential to ask the right questions and know which ones to ask and what answers you are looking for of your potential supplier. Also to understand in advance the application, and ideally the location where the fixture will be used. Ask manufacturers for their detailed technical documents, and read any specifications in their data sheets very carefully.
