LED Power Supplies and Drivers

Foster’s LED Power Supply – model number 16192 – brings unprecedented
flexibility to the LED driver market.

Designed to power loads up to 60 W, Foster’s power supply can be used with virtually any fixture designed to operate from a 12 VDC or 24VDC source. For loads larger than 60 W, multiple units may be used.

Foster’s model 16192 LED power supply is suitable for input voltages of 120 V, 240 V, or 277 V, and is ETL Certified for use in North America and CE marked and for use in Europe1. It features a Limited Power Source Output (LPS) complying with the requirements of NFPA 70®, National Electrical Code®, Article 725.121 Power Sources for Class 2 and Class 3 Circuits2. The output complies with Table 11(B), Inherently Limited Power Source (Overcurrent Protection Not Required).

Foster’s model 16192 LED power supply is designed to be compatible with commonly available triac based low voltage magnetic dimmers (may also be referred to as symmetrical forward phase dimmers) making it ideal for retrofit applications. Avoid using dimmers not rated for magnetic low voltage lighting or not labeled as symmetrical forward phase as they may cause the power supply to overheat or damage the attached lighting products.

Never use with dimmers designated for electronic low voltage transformers or reverse phase dimmers. Observe all installation instructions provided with your dimmer including minimum load requirements and do not operate power supply from a dimmer without a load attached as this may lead to overheating. It is also not recommended to use dimmers with neutral connections as these have been known to create flicker in some installations.

Dimmers with minimum load requirements such as the Lutron Maestro® series have been used successfully when combined with Lutron’s LUT-LBX® synthetic minimum load3. This device allows the dimmer to function as if connected to a traditional incandescent lighting system. Please consult the factory if you have additional questions regarding dimmer application.

If Foster’s model 16192 Triac Dimmable LED Power Supply is used without a dimmer, caution should exercised to insure excess voltage is not applied to the LED lighting product. Voltages above the rated voltage may cause overheating and reduced life. Always check the output voltage at the input to the LED module or fixture after installation. If voltage is above 12 VDC or 24 VDC with the LED product attached, Foster does offer a module under our part number 16337 which is designed for use in low wattage applications, or with installations where a dimmer is not used. Consult factory for additional information.

Foster’s model 16192 dimmable LED power supply is ideal for retrofit and new installs and can be used with most LED strip lights, LED rope lights, LED accent lights, LED puck lights, LED MR16 replacements, and many types of LED signage. Foster’s triac dimmable LED power supply is designed for use with fixed voltage (12 VDC or 24 VDC) LED products and is not intended for use with constant current LED products.
