Fulham reported that at LightFair 2018 next week it will launch the HotSpot Plus™ 70S universal voltage 70W LED / 7W emergency combination driver. The HotSpot Plus 70S, Fulham’s newest compact LED driver, supports both conventional and emergency lighting.The company asserts that the HotSpot Plus 70S is comparable in size to non-emergency 70W LED drivers. Fulham developed the Hotspot Plus 70S for installers and OEMs needing an all-in-one and reliable, universal LED driver that would meet state and city safety requirements.
According to Fulham, the Hotspot Plus 70S works for luminaire in which LED driver space is limited. The HotSpot Plus 70S boasts the smallest form factor available for a driver with its power and features of universal 120-277VAC input with a maximum of 70W output (programmable constant current output of 350mA – 2400mA /11-55VDC).
This wide range programmable current output translates to flexibility in its use for a broad range of fixtures. The total 70S product size, including the 14.4Wh battery, measures merely 1.18 inches wide and 1 inch high and has an overall length of 16.71 inches.
The driver is also flexible in use for emergency lighting with 1W to 7W programmable constant power emergency output that can deliver up to 90 minutes of operation at 7W with a replaceable LiFePO4 battery.The HotSpot Plus features a 12-hour battery recharge time and a red/green self-diagnostic indicator helps simplify maintenance and troubleshooting.
Like all HotSpot Plus units, the HotSpot Plus 70S offers 0-10V dimming (1-100 percent), and the driver is programmable using Fulham’s SmartSet handheld programmer or SmartSet PC software. The HotSpot 70S will be CEC Title 20 compliant, UL LISTED,CE and ENEC certified. Fulham backs the HotSpot Plus 70S with its five-year warranty.
“The lighting market is changing rapidly so we developed our line of HotSpot Plus products to support both conventional and emergency lighting needs in one LED driver package. This results in the smallest solution possible with less inventory and faster installation because of the reduced wiring,” said Alvaro Garcia, product director, LED Emergency and Advance R&D, for Fulham. “The compact design, wide output voltage, and programmability allow Fulham customers to use the HotSpot Plus in almost any new or retrofitted lighting fixture.”
Fulham’s HotSpot Plus LED/emergency drivers will be showcased at LightFair 2018 in Booth 602. For more information, visit www.fulham.com.
