Separate drivers are available in two types: constant current and constant voltage. A constant current driver provides a constant current, such as 700mA, to a pre-made LED array that is designed to operate at that current level. A constant voltage driver provides a constant voltage to several LED arrays connected in parallel, such as with cover lights. These types of drivers are not interchangeable and it is the design of the LED array that determines which driver is appropriate.
Lutron currently tests LED fixtures from other manufacturers to determine their dimming performance, either with a Lutron LED driver or a driver by others.
The results from those tests are posted on the LED Product Selection Tool
If you are interested in using the Hi-lume A-Series LED driver
, a complete listing of the compatible Lutron controls
can be found here. You can also find a list of fixtures that already use the Hi-lume A-Series LED driver in the LED Product Selection Tool
