Designer's Note

We have been supplying the EMCOD MLE series dimmable electronic transformers for the new generation of LED Tape light products including the high intensity products. Use a tape light transformer that out performs all the competition and produces smooth even dimming results.

  • Constant voltage output
  • Compatible with Forward phase, Reverse phase, Triac, MLV, ELV Dimmers
  • Cooling by free air convection
  • Flicker-free dimming
  • Dry and damp location
  • cULus Listed, Class 2 on 96W  per circuit and below
  • Power Factor of 0.95
  • Driver dims from 1%-100% on compatible controls. (see the dimmer list below)
  • Driver is designed for use with forward phase, leading edge, MLV, triac, reverse phase, trailing edge and ELV Dimmers.

The tape light manufacturers rarely collaborate with anyone on their new product develop so this transformer group was designed to work with older LED tape light styles as most of all the new LED High output tape light products. We always recommend to of our professional Installers to bench test anytime a LED Tape product changes to insure it will work with the transformer and dimmer before you install in the clients home. This will insure compatibility and eliminate "call-backs". Always install with approved methods and NEC standards to avoid non-passive failure.

We are thrilled with the quality and reliability of this EMCOD product. The constant voltage output flicker rate of the MLE series is 400Hz-500Hz provides a much better quality light output compared to the older magnetic LED hybrid driver that provided a flicker rate of about 50Hz-to 100Hz. The improved dimming quality and wide range of dimming compatibility solves a lot of issues with older dimmable driver technology currently in the market. The housing of the MLE was designed to be as compact and slim as possible without hindering the ease of installation.  See the specifications on this product as well as the factory wiring page included below.

The MLE transformer is the go-to transformer for our professionals that inside on the best product and getting the job done without issues and drama.

Affordable, stable, reliable and repeatable makes this our #1 choice for LED Tape and strip light transformers.

The MLE series are dimmable with triac phase cut dimming. Forward leading edge and reverse trailing edge dimmers, suitable for MLV, ELV dimmers Magnetic Low Voltage and Electronic Low Voltage.
As the move from traditional lighting to light emitting diodes (LEDs) accelerates and a wider range of solutions hits the market, consumers have become more selective about the products they choose. In particular, linear dimming with a wide contrast ratio and no chromaticity variation or perceptible flicker is considered the mark of a quality product.
An established technique is to dim the LED using pulse width modulation (PWM) of the forward current powering the LED. The basic premise is that during the “ON” cycle of the PWM train, the LED is operating under optimum forward current/forward voltage conditions. As a result, the quality of light is high, and the perceived brightness is linearly proportional to the PWM train’s duty cycle.

The MLE series is a PWM Constant Voltage driver designated for a single direct current (DC) output voltage, usually 12VDC or 24VDC. An LED light rated for a constant voltage requires a consistent amount of output voltage to ensure a proper operation. The driver has universal input voltage 110-277 Volts 50/60Hz for MLE and 100-130V 50/60Hz for ECV series, suitable for residential and commercial power wide world. This voltage is in the form of alternating current voltage (VAC), which the driver converts into a low direct current voltage (VDC). This means that the driver will maintain a constant voltage no matter the load current and input voltage variation.  An example of a constant voltage LED driver is displayed below.

Constant Voltage Example

Input Voltage Output Voltage Output Current (Amps)
110-277VAC 12VDC** 1 Amp Max

Note** The voltage is set to only one designated value.
With a set voltage, the driver will maintain a constant voltage if the current stays below the 1-amp maximum shown in the example. Most often, constant voltage drivers are implemented in signage when the amount of LED loads will vary. Constant voltage applications include Cabinet lights, Tape lights, Flex LED Strip, LED Light Bar, LED module, etc. but are not limited to those categories.
The driver has overload, short circuit and overheat self-reset protections.
