Smart Driver™ Lighting Ballasts: AC Specifications

A few guidelines to remember about your Smart Driver™ Lighting Ballast:

  • It is important that you operate Light Tape® and Smart Driver™ Lighting Ballasts within their parameters.
  • Over current will destroy electrical connections.
  • 250 volts is mid range and recommended set point!
  • The external dimmer switch on Smart Driver™ controls the output voltage and frequency.
  • Use a voltage meter to determine volts / hertz.
  • Always set power supply output voltage per factory recommended setting:
    • Low: 200 volts; Medium: 250 volts; High: 300 volts
  • We DO NOT recommend exceeding 300 volts. Contact E-LLC if Smart Driver™ is operating outside of range.
  • Red LED indicates the following:
    • Short Circuit Protection: Check wiring if light is on.
    • Overload Protection: Verify that lamp area is acceptable, or for possible damage to lamp.
  • Always treat Light Tape® and Smart Driver™ with care and respect as one would with any device where electrical current is present.

Lighting Ballast Sizing Guidelines

Smart Driver™ Lighting Ballasts are designed to illuminate specific surface areas. Light Tape® will achieve maximum performance and lifetime by selecting the appropriate ballast to supply power to the application. All you need to do is determine the total surface area of Light Tape® that you are using for your installation. Refer to the following Quick Guide to determine which power supply is suitable.

We recommend when operating multiple segments off one Smart Driver™ that the shortest segment is 50% of the mimimum rated load. For instance, the SD-4000 recommended operating range is 2000 to 4000 square inches. Therefore, the 50% threshold for the shortest segment would be 1000 square inches. If one segment of the installation goes out, please balance the load. Prolonged use with an unbalanced load may result in failure at connection.
