12V LED Drivers | Next Day Delivery
A constant voltage LED Driver is a power supply that regulates the voltage supplied to a lighting product. For low voltage LEDs it is important that the correct voltage is supplied to prevent overheating or electrical failure. Our range of 12V drivers is perfect for use with our ranges of 12V LED tape and LED modules.
When specifying an LED driver both the voltage and the wattage must be suitable for the product you are powering. An LED power supply should not be run at any more than 75% of its capacity to prevent overloading the driver.
For professional installs we keep stock of IP67 rated LED drivers suitable for both indoor and outdoor projects. Shop our selection of LED drivers and find the right product to power your lED lighting project.
What Size 12V LED Driver Do I Need?
When specifying a 12V LED driver both the voltage and the wattage must be suitable for the product you are powering. For LED strips this can be done by multiplying the total length of the strip by the power consumed per metre. For example;
- 9 metres of 4.8 W/pm 12V LED strip would draw a total of 43.2 Watts ( 9m x 4.8 W/pm)
- 6 metres of 14.4 W/pm 12V LED strip would draw a total of 86.4 Watts (6m x 14.4 W/pm)
To prevent overheating an LED driver should not be run at more than 75% of its capacity. For example;
- A 60W 12V Driver can power a maximum of 45W (75% of 60W)
- A 150W 12V Driver can power a maximum of 112.5W (75% of 60W)
By properly specifying your 12V LED Driver you will ensure that the power supply does not overheat or fail prematurely.
