SwitchTech Smart Digital Drivers

SwitchTech’s aim is to develop high quality digital LED drivers. All behaviours of the driver are modifiable and can be changed in real-time. These drivers offer a very long life to match the longevity of modern light engines.

 

The SSW60 is a 60W dual channel digital LED driver.

  • Two independent output channels
  • 60W total and per channel power
  • 32 DIP settings, 75-2600mA in CC and 9V-48 V in CV mode
  • 2% output voltage and current accuracy
  • Very good dimming performance, very low flicker (<6% at 60W)
  • 2x ‘Push to make’ inputs, 1-10V, DALI and Casambi simultaneous dimming.

The LD220 is a 200VA Bluetooth controller phase-cut dimmer for all 230V luminaires.

  • Can be used with ‘push to make’ input, standard switch or Bluetooth
  • ‘Push to make’ input can be used to group or control any scenario
  • Small form factor, wall box, OEM or surface mounting
  • Scheduling of light and animations, auto adjusting for season
  • Change profile in app, logarithmic, linear or on-off behaviour

Wireless connection/grouping of luminaires and switches.

UPRtek Handheld Spectrometers

Here at Holders Components we are proud to be the distributor for UPRtek Handheld Spectrometers. All their products are developed with the end user in mind thus ensuring that these spectrometers are of a very high quality, are easy to use and practical. They come with a 2 year standard warranty, a free calibration within the warranty period and are shipped from UK stock.

So, look no further for a quick and easy way to demonstrate your luminaire’s credentials to your customers.

The 350D spectrometer is the lightest handheld spectrometer in the world. This handheld spectrometer enables you to measure CCT, LUX, CRI, CIE 1976 u’,v’ or CIE1931 x, y, Percent Flicker, SPD and peak wavelength. Just aim and shoot and all this information is available on the display. This device supports Micro SD card and is compatible with smart devices. It can be controlled wirelessly through Bluetooth. Use the uSPECTRUM App and Software for advance analysis including 5 additional customized lighting application modes.

 

 

This spectro-flicker meter offers up to 40 different light measurements ensuring that you are able to compare your light sources with one handy device. As with the MK350D this spectrometer enables you to measure CCT, LUX, CRI, CIE 1976 u’,v’ or CIE1931 x, y, Percent Flicker, SPD and peak wavelength but also offers many more measurements to ensure that your luminaire is  emitting the best quality light and one that you are confident to advertise. The MK350N Premium offers an additional Data Browser Mode meaning you can browse a number of options from the display screen without the need of any other device.

 

 

The MK350S is UPRtek’s advanced handheld spectrometer. Its aim to improve the production efficiency and increase the product quality No need to connect with a PC or mobile phone therefore offering standalone operation enabling you to take measurements at any time. This spectrometer allows for wireless control through WiFi and coupled with the app (available on iOS and Android) will offer you a premium service at your fingertips. As with the MK350D this spectrometer enables you to measure CCT, LUX, CRI, CIE 1976 u’, v’ or CIE1931 x, y, SPD and peak wavelength but also offers many more measurements to ensure that your luminaire is  emitting the best quality light and one that you are confident to advertise.

 

 

The MF250N not only measures flicker but it is also a FFT Spectrum Analyser, Light wave Meter and Frequency Analyser providing 3 major metrics that lighting experts use to fight Flicker and to ensure the quality of light

Luminus Tunable and Dimmable White Solutions

We are pleased to announce that we will shortly be taking stock of the new Luminus Tunable White and Warm Dim COBs. Using their innovative SMD Xnova Cube these products enable the user to vary the colour temperature of their light modules.

This two channel COB offers cool and warm CubePower LEDs on a metal PC board. Its high lumen density creates directional lighting with beam angles ranging from 10 to 40 degrees.
In terms of the range of colour temperature, between 4000K to 1800K CCT range can be achieved for residential and hospitality lighting and 6500K to 2700K CCT range for commercial lighting.
These COBs also offer consistent white light <3 SDCM.

The preliminary data sheet for this series can be found here.

This COB offers a Dim-to-warm control chip on a metal PCB board. Similar to the Tunable white product, its high lumen density creates directional lighting with beam angles ranging from 10 to 40 degrees. With over 105lm/W at typical drive condition with CRI90 this COB offers high efficacy.

These COBs also offer consistent white light <3 SDCM.
In terms of colour temperature, between 3000K to 1800K warm dimming can be achieved for residential and hospitality lighting and 4000K/3500K to 2700K warm dimming for commercial lighting.
