Press Release Summary:
Featuring constant current design with buck-boost topology, GP-LD10-30C and GP-LD15-24C can be used on vessels/vehicles, with power sources with fluctuating voltage, as well as with solar panels for LED luminance. These IP65-rated drivers, with universalÂ 11–15 Vdc and 22–30 Vdc input ranges, automatically detect 12 or 24 V input and come with integrated UVLO, short-circuit, over-voltage, and reverse voltage protection. Power conversion efficiency is >84% at 12/24 Vdc.

GlacialPower Announces Two New GP-LD Series DC Input LED Drivers for 12V and 24V DC
Designed to be used in a variety of applications such as vessels or vehicles and includes the ability to accept Solar Panel power
Taipei, Taiwan – GlacialPower, a division of the Taiwanese technology manufacturer, GlacialTech Inc., is pleased to announce two new GlacialPower LED drivers for variable voltage LED lights – GP-LD10-30C and GP-LD15-24C.
The GP-LD10-30C and GP-LD15-24C are multi-use scenario LED drivers fit for a wide range of implementations. They can be used on vessels or vehicles and with power sources with fluctuating voltage. They have been designed to work well with solar panels for LED luminance. Included are many power and environmental ruggedness features to ensure maximum safety.
Both drivers have built-in constant current design with buck-boost topology, and a variety of safety cut off features to withstand the harshest ripple in the supplied power. An integral component is the low voltage protector. If the input voltage is lower than the UVLO protection point, below the operational value, the device will shut down automatically thus saving the connected lights. Standard Short-Circuit Protection and Over Voltage Protection are also included.
The two drivers have auto input voltage detectors. This ensures driver safety as it can detect 12 or 24V input. In order to prevent connecting the power lines in reverse accidentally damaging the driver, Reverse Protection with an automated disconnection from the current, is included. The highly secure and rugged IP65 design exterior insures no ingress of dust and water as well as complete protection against contact. It also ruggedly operates at a wide variation in temperature, from -20 to 40°C.
