Why do you have to use a LED driver?

LED drivers also protect LEDs from voltage or current fluctuations. A change in voltage could cause a change in the current being supplied to the LEDs. Too much or too little current can therefore cause light output to vary or degrade faster due to higher temperatures within the LED.

Considering this, do all LED lights need a driver?

Most households use 120-277V AC electricity, but LEDs operate on low voltage DC electricity. Thus, the driver changes the higher voltage AC current into the lower voltage DC current to match what the LED lights need to operate. When LED bulbs are dimmed, particular at the low end of light output, flicker may result.

What is a LED driver transformer?

LED drivers (also known as LED power supplies) are similar to ballasts for fluorescent lamps or transformers for low- voltage bulbs: they provide LEDs with the electricity they require to function and perform at their best. LEDs require drivers for two purposes: 1.

What is a LED ballast?

Ballasts vary in design complexity. Electronic ballasts, or drivers, are used to drive various lighting loads, including light emitting diodes (LED), fluorescent (Linear and CFL), induction fluorescent (IF), and high-intensity discharge (HID) lamps.
