When the light bulb was invented, civilization was forever changed. Candles and torches were no longer necessary, work and life outdoors continued long after sunset, and the best thing about it was anybody could afford to have it in their homes. For the past several years LED lighting has widely been considered to be the future of lighting because it is brighter and consumes less power.

The main downside to LED lighting has been that it was far too expensive to be a feasible replacement to incandescent and fluorescent bulbs. Today, LEDs are more affordable for the average customer and the search for similarly priced LED power drivers has led us to Magnitude Lighting Transformer.

Among a multitude of features, these LED drivers have a few distinct qualities:

Magnitude LED drivers are reliable, durable and compact in size. If fact, they are widely recognized as the most compact LED drivers with a magnetic transformer core on the market. Having a magnetic transformer core minimizes the number of parts, so they are less prone to possible component failure. Switching power supplies can be more efficient and lighter, but these will keep the cost down while staying reliable.

Dimmable LED magnetic DC and AC voltage drivers are among the most popular product lines Magnitude Lighting has to offer. Encased in a high-quality NEMA 3R metal enclosure that includes two knockouts for easy installation, these LED drivers are practically foolproof. Of course we recommend having a qualified electrician help install them, but who really listens to that advice?
