Product Description

The iDrive® Force 12 is the world's first LED driver to integrate an advanced control system alongside a powerful 320W driver stage, which can control up to 12 independent output channels with the widest ever range of dimming control protocols.

The Force 12 can be dynamically configured to use DALI, DMX, RDM, Art-Net3, TCP/IP and sACN dimming protocols, whilst being able to monitor external occupancy and ambient light sensors, without the need for expensive external control systems.

Advanced control technology combined with the powerful ieOS operating system enables users to dim the constant current fixtures in 8-bit or 16-bit mode, offering unprecedented accuracy for dimming and colour control.

The Force 12 utlises the patented HyperDrive™ driver technology, which has been designed specifically to deliver medically effective lighting for humans and animals. The HyperDrive™ system avoids current pulses to dim the outputs and thereby mitigates the risk of headaches or migraines after long exposure, which can be associated with other common PWM-based systems.
