Gardasoft LED Pulse Controller PP1600
To get the very best out of your LED lighting solution, in terms of brightness stability and control, the lights should be driven from a current source, not a nominal voltage supply. The Gardasoft controllers are current sources. The PP1600 series LED lighting controller offers 16 output channels which are independently controlled.
You have two options regarding communication; RS232 (PP1660 range) or Ethernet (PP1620 range). The standard versions offer a maximum pulse current of 20A. There are other options which reduce the maximum pulse current to 2A. Each channel can be individually configured to output continuously; or pulsed based on an external trigger signal or internal timer.
The PP1600 models can be quickly configured using our free software which can be downloaded from this page, or for the PP1620 Ethernet enabled controller range simply by accessing the controller via your internet browser; type in the IP address for the controller into your browser and you have full access to all of the parameters. If you are using a third party software package the PP1600 range has a simple command set that is detailed in the manual allowing easy communication. As with all Gardasoft products, all the settings are stored in non-volatile memory, and it will retain these settings even when the Ethernet or RS232 connection is disconnected. Gardasoft Controllers are universally compatible with LED Vision lighting, from manufacturers such as CCS.
- 16 channel LED lighting controllers
- Pulsing up to 20A per channel
- 8 trigger inputs
- Ethernet or RS232 interface options
- Designed for new generation LEDs
- Compatible with nearly any LED lighting assembly available today
- 2A continuous output
- 1µs minimum pulse width
- Very fast bright strobing for freezing motion
- Very repeatable lighting intensity
- Driving the LEDs with a constant current, rather than voltage
- Ability to pulse the output at a higher current to achieve a higher output intensity
- Pulsing turns the LEDs off when not in use, increasing their MTBF rates, reducing downtime
