(Toronto, ON, Canada) is announcing its new CVW125-MV, 60W, 12V LED power supply. Housed in extruded aluminum with durable metal endplates, and sealed against moisture intrusion, this fully encapsulated and waterproof, high-power-factor LED driver provides short-circuit and overload protection and is rated IP 68 for Class 2 applications, the company reports. Its compact size and light weight are specifically designed for sign applications. Allanson provides a five-year warranty. (800) 661-7251; France LED Driver France (Fairview, TN) is introducing its LED-1260PS, a 12VDC, 5-amp LED driver with 120/277V input for wet, damp or dry locations. It operates reliably into a full 60W load from -40° C to 60° C, with no need to derate it by 5-10%, the company states. If an overload or high-temperature conditions occur, the unit will automatically adjust the LED load to maintain consistent light without causing a shutdown or diode blinking, the company adds. It also incorporates a unique indicator light, which will signal if a load is becoming excessive, to eliminate guesswork. (615) 799-1140; AgiLight LED Power Supply AgiLight Inc. (San Antonio, TX) is announcing its 60W LED power supply that features a built-in wiring enclosure designed to eliminate the need for secondary boxes or neon-transformer cans. With an IP68 rating, it eliminates the conventional enclosure and junction boxes in outdoor installations, which generates labor and cost savings for end-users, the company reports. Customized for signage applications, this product also features a wide, AC-input voltage range (100-277V), which eliminates the possibility of high-voltage damage to the unit and increases the reliability, the company adds. Additionally, its operating temperature range (-35ºC to +70ºC) allows the unit to be used in harsh environments. (866) 482-0203; Tecnolux Cold-Cathode Power Supplies Tecnolux (Brooklyn, NY) is offering a line of power supplies for the cold-cathode lighting market to replace incandescent lamps.
