Although ProLED lamps are designed to perform well with most available transformers in these categories,
ensuring transformer compatibility is crucial to the proper performance and lifetime of ProLED lamps.

– Can be designed in a very small package and are often
integrated into a luminaire

– At low wattages, they can have a cost advantage due to
less material
– Less likely to translate voltage instability from incoming
power to output power
– Operates at high frequencies which can interfere with or damage
LED products
– Minimum load rating that can be triggered by the low draw of
LED lamps, causing the transformer to think there is a failed

– Less tolerant of heat than magnetic transformers. Must be
designed to be dimmed
Electronic DC Transformers and LED Lighting
– Ideal power supply for most LED products, as almost all
LED chips are designed as DC only
– Provides a very stable power source, often allowing LED
products to perform better
– Smaller and lighter than magnetic transformers
– Provides less voltage drop on long wiring runs
– Do not translate voltage instability from incoming power to
output power
