Vektrex offers the only LM-80 test solution on the market combining the ability to test in both LM-80-15 accepted modes—constant current and pulsed/PWM current. The LM-80 solution enables test designers to perfectly duplicate SSL end users Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) parameters producing data that matches real-world lighting performance. Vektrex’s configurable LM-80 solution is based upon the patented SpikeSafe ™ Series current sources that supply a wide range of drive currents and voltages. Typical pulsed current sources lack the power to support the high currents and duty cycles required for this generation’s high power SSL needs. Vektrex current sources support high peak and continuous power levels, so test designers can choose any duty cycle from 0-100%. The SpikeSafe drives current, DC and PWM mode, accurately to the ends of the long (40’) drive cables typically found in reliability labs. Vektrex LM-80 solution and SpikeSafe current sources are the standard.
