What is an LED Driver?
Drivers are essentially a regulator of power acting between the LED and the power source. They ensure that there are no significant fluctuations within either the current or the voltage (we’ll expand upon this further down).
Accordingly, the driver protects the LED from harmful increases in temperature, reducing the possibilities of overheating, ensuring that the LED has optimal performance throughout its lifetime.
If that explanation wasn’t succinct enough; you may better understand the role of an LED driver if you acknowledge that drivers are essentially the LED equivalent of a traditional ballast or transformer.
Not the vehicular robots though, although that would be an interesting concept for new product development – watch this space!
