​The new LEDVANCE LED driver portfolio is patent pending and was just awarded a Platinum Award from the Awards for Design Excellence (ADEX), the largest and most prestigious design competition in the architecture and design industry. Since 1995, the ADEX has recognized superior innovation, function, and aesthetics in design. The ADEX Award is the industry stamp of approval for superior design of architecture and design projects and furnishings and building materials marketed for specification to the design trade.​

Designed to Be Better

Here are some of the reasons the new LEDVANCE tapTronic Field-Programmable LED Drivers are better for contractors.

  1. With the free app, your smart phone is your personal driver programming tool! All you need to do is set the parameters for the driver on the app and then tap the driver with your smart phone. It’s that easy!Replace many driver types with one! Being able to custom program the drivers can replace a wide variety of drivers. This means contractors and distributors don’t have to carry a lot of SKUs.

  2. Having an app on your smart phone to program means no more having to buy or use additional programming wires and tools, print labels that wear with time, or use a laptop to program the LED driver. You can program these in the field, anywhere, anytime. 

  3. The LED drivers don’t need to be powered to be programmed. Rather than programming on a ladder, contractors can customize as many as they need fast and easily before installing.  

“LEDVANCE tapTronic Field-Programmable LED Drivers are better than others on the market because our app is available in both the Apple and Google Play App Stores, we have more types of field-programmable drivers, you can program these with unrestricted increments, we have fully customizable dimming where others are restrictive, and they can help save contractors time," said Marjory Stevenson, product marketing representative and ballasts & drivers portfolio manager, LEDVANCE LLC. “Designed to have a larger programming range, reading and programming LED drivers is just a tap away!"
