Why doesn’t Integral Lighting utilize DC LED chips?


Until recently, Direct Current (DC) LEDs were the widely accepted method of converting a fixture to LED. DC 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 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.
