Taipei, Taiwan, 2011/03/16 - A newly developed LED Driver that increases compatibility, reliability, efficiency, and performance announced by GlacialLight.
GlacialLight, a sub-division of the experienced technology manufacturer GlacialTech Inc., is pleased to announce the newly innovated GlacialPower LED driver that enhances lumen and power-saving performances, making available more compatible, more efficient and more reliable LED lighting products. The GlacialPower LED driver is already in use on GlacialLight's MR16 and AR111 LED bulbs.
GlacialLight's R&D team has developed the GlacialPower LED driver to eliminate the need for an electronic transformer, aiming to provide more energy-saving and environmentally-friendly LED products. GlacialPower's LED driver technology is expected to lead a new trend in innovation and become an essential feature for all LED lighting products.
Traditionally, LED chips are powered as follows:
An electronic transformer is used to convert AC voltages (usually 110V or 220V) to the LED product's specified voltage (AC12V) → This power then flows into an LED driver and is converted into DC voltage with constant current control → Finally, the power flows to the LED chip.
With GlacialPower's innovative LED driver, the first step in this power conversion process is unnecessary. AC voltages flow directly into GlacialPower's LED driver and then provide a constant current to the LED chip, without any additional drivers needed in the bulb itself.
This enhancement means that GlacialLight's LED products have a more optimized and streamlined powering process. The simplified process makes the power conversion efficient and enhances the reliability of the LED products.
The advantages of bundling AR111/MR16 LED luminaries with the GlacialPower AC-to-DC LED driver HS05N / HS10P /HS15P/ TS10P series
1.The AC-to-DC LED driver can accommodate a wide AC input voltage range of 90~264V. ( TS10P Excluded)
2.Benefits from this one-stage power conversion include high efficiency and high reliability.
3.AC Triac Dimming capability. ( TS10P only )
4.High power factor (PF) achieved. (HS05N Excluded )
5.No compatibility issues are caused by AC electronic transformers
6.LED lifetimes are prolonged by eliminating the need for AC electronic transformers in the lighting system.
7.The series can put up with harsh environments and is accredited with the IP67 ingression protection against dust and water.
8.The AC-to-DC LED driver also complies with the IEC 61347 safety standard.
Excellent LED lighting products you can trust
Design of LED lighting products is based on three core technologies including electrical design (LED drivers), mechanical design (cooling devices), and optical design (lamp holders), respectively performed by GlacialPower, GlacialTech, and GlacialLight in the GlacialTech family.

Advantages and benefits of LED lighting compared to traditional lighting:
Directional lighting: ideal for flashlights/torches and spotlights
No warm-up time in cold environments: LEDs don’t require warm-up time like conventional CFLs
No harmful radiation and no hazardous metals: LEDs don’t emit harmful radiation such as Ultraviolet or Infrared emitting halogen lamps and don’t contain hazardous metals such as mercury contained in mercury lamps
Extremely long lifetimes free users from frequent bulb replacement
Extremely small carbon footprints: an environmentally-friendly technology
