Advanced Energy – a global leader in highly engineered, precision power conversion, measurement and control solutions – announced the introduction of the LCM4000HV series of configurable power supplies. The new power system features hot swap functionality and simplifies installation, maintenance and scalability of high-volume LED lighting projects such as horticultural and commercial lighting.
The LCM4000HV series of configurable power supplies features hot swap functionality and simplifies installation, maintenance and scalability of high-volume LED lighting projects such as horticultural and commercial lighting.
Rated for up to 4000 W and operating with efficiencies of up to 95%, the LCM4000HV single-phase AC-DC high voltage power modules combined with the new LCM12K 19″ 1U rack mount shelf creates a centralized current source for medium- to large-scale LED lighting installations.
“Indoor growers seeking to reduce costs and maximize their farm productivity are turning to centralized power systems that distribute DC rather than AC power directly to individual LED lamps. This approach can save up to 50 percent of their power conversion expenses,” said Joe Voyles, Vice President of Industrial Power Conversion at Advanced Energy. “In addition to delivering energy savings, the LCM4000HV family accelerates the installation of the power conversion subsystem, provides hot swap functionality, simplifies maintenance and enables rapid scalability.”
The LCM4000HV modules are fully compliant with DesignLights Consortium (DLC) Technical Requirements for Horticultural Lighting (Version 2.1) and can be used with Advanced Energy’s new LCM12K 19″ 1U rack mount shelf to deliver power up to 12 kW with hot plug replacement. In horticultural lighting, this combination allows customers to place the power conversion subsystem containing many rack-mounted AC/DC power supplies in a control room outside the growing area.
