Why doesn’t Integral Lighting utilize DC LED chips?

Until recently, DC LEDs were the widely accepted method of converting a fixture to LED. Direct Current LEDs require additional electronics within the system, commonly referred to as “the driver.” This converts the transformers AC power to DC and makes the LED operate.

We worked closely with chip designers and packagers to supply a hybrid 12 volt AC LED that requires no conversion of power. Our LED operates on AC voltage.

Simply put, less electronics = less potential failure.
