Outdoor portfolio with high overvoltage protection

TALEXXdriver PREMIUM OTD devices can withstand 10 kV

Dornbirn, February 15, 2016 – LED street lights and outdoor lights can be professionally dimmed with voltage-resistant TALEXXdriver in the PREMIUM OTD series from Tridonic. These drivers for luminaire installation offer impressive surge/burst resistance of 10 kV and are extremely durable with a life of 100,000 hours.

Tridonic has extended its outdoor portfolio with the addition of the TALEXXdriver PREMIUM OTD series for professional dimmable LED lighting solutions in luminaires of protection classes I and II. The drivers are housed in a fully encapsulated enclosure and are particularly suitable for use in harsh ambient conditions outdoors, providing reliable, flexible and cost-effective lighting with a high level of efficiency. There are five different versions with different outputs and variable output currents.


TALEXXdriver Output  Adjustable output current
LCA 30 W 250–700 mA one4all C PRE OTD 30 W 250 – 700 mA 
LCA 60 W 350-1050 mA one4all C PRE OTD 60 W 350 – 1050 mA
LCA 75 W 250-750 mA one4all C PRE OTD 75 W 250 – 750 mA
LCA 120 W 350-1050 mA one4all C PRE OTD 120 W 350 – 1050 mA
LCA 160 W 350-1050 mA one4all C PRE OTD 160 W 350 – 1050 mA


All the versions are equipped with one4all (DALI DT6, DSI, corridorFUNCTION) and ready2mains™/U6Me2 (chronoSTEP 2) interfaces. The drivers therefore have the flexibility to meet different lighting requirements. Luminaires can be easily configured via the power cable with the aid of the ready2mains programmer so there is no need for an additional communications interface. During production the ready2mains enables output currents to be set and tested, and dimming commands to be defined. Integration in automated test processes is also possible. Outdoors, ready2mains can be used to program individual LED street lights, or entire street runs can be programmed from the switching cabinet via the U6Me2 communication protocol with a high degree of flexibility. The chronoSTEP 2 function, which is also known as virtual midnight, offers additional energy savings. It takes into account reduced traffic on the streets at certain times during the night and enables the lighting to be programmed in eight individual dimming levels and times.

In accordance with their intended use outdoors, the drivers operate reliably in an extended temperature range from -40 to +70 °C. Standby mode is particularly economical with a power draw of less than 0.16 W.
