LED transformers / power supplies
Matching power supply units and transformers are also available for the future-oriented LED technology. The transformers serve,
As with halogen lamps, the transformers are used to convert the operating voltage of 230 volts for the 12 volt or 24 volt LED luminaires.
conversion. They are mainly used for cable systems or so-called LED strips.
Because with these systems in particular, it is important to convert the alternating voltage
referred from the conventional socket into the required voltage.
to be converted into the required DC voltage.
This process also has another advantage: in the event of an electric shock, the consequences are not nearly as
devastating as with a high-voltage supply. The LED transformers are therefore unavoidable,
if one opts for the cost-saving low-voltage LED lamps.
