Centralise • Optimise • Economise

The Ethernet-based iDrive® centralised LED driver range provides the optimum power solution for the increasingly smart, connected world.  iDrive® centralised LED drivers drastically simplify maintenance and are designed for installation in 19” 1U server racks in maintenance rooms, enabling easy access when required.

The centralised drivers are capable of driving up to 36 individual luminaires from a single driver, up to a distance of 300m away, which is particularly advantageous for installations involving high ceilings. Remote installation of the LED driver well away from the luminaires also reduces disruption caused by maintenance downtime.

The range includes constant current and constant voltage variants, with each driver supporting multiple protocols, including DALI, DMX, RDM, Ethernet, sACN & Art-Net3 and Art-Osc.




Extending the life of luminaires 

The need to no longer see luminaires as a single life product has been widely discussed in the Recolight Webinar series. At Recolight, we recycle, but as we move towards a Circular Economy model, recycling is not always the best solution.

Recolight has launched two services with the aim of reducing the amount of product that gets recycled, and instead, diverting it to re-use.  

The first service focuses on the reuse and remanufacture of used lighting, by offering used fittings collected from Recolight’s Members to companies willing to remanufacture them. The second service aims to ensure that surplus new lighting equipment is not recycled or discarded, but instead is put into service at charities and similar organisations.
