Rack mounted, high-power, constant current 24-channel dimmer. Product is built to order; please contact for more details.

Product code: CP24 Category: Tags: , , ,


Candle-Power™ is an LED dimmer designed to control high power LED devices such as those available from Lumileds and Cree.

Candle-Power is based on a modulation technique, invented by Artistic Licence, called Asymmetric Frequency Modulation AFM.

The product is a Rack-Mounted enclosure providing up to 24 channels of dimming. It has an internal universal mains PSU so is a self-contained unit. Each of the 24 outputs can drive one to twelve high power LEDs in series. This provides a total load capability of 288 LEDs (subject to internal PSUs).

Candle-Power 24 is available in three standard variants described by the part number as follows:

CP24-xx-yyymA (aaV-bbbW)

  • xx is the number of channels (up to 24 maximum)
  • yyy is the current rating of the module (350mA, 700mA or custom)
  • aa is the voltage of internal PSU (24V, 48V or custom)
  • bbb is the power available (300W or 600W)

1W LEDs are normally driven at 350mA. 3W LEDs are normally driven at 700mA.

A suitable RDM tool can be used to set the start address.

CP24 is built to order; please contact for more details.
