Cuvée Systems and Luminus Release 120V Compact Phase-Cut Drivers
Specifically Designed to Fit in Small Lighting Fixtures
San Jose, Calif., November 3, 2021, Cuvée Systems has announced its DRW-NLT series of compact LED drivers that offers superior performance for small to medium sized lighting fixtures, such as down lights, track lights, spot lights and wall sconces. This new series is suitable for dry or damp locations, is incredibly compact in size, offers a world class flicker-free design ensuring the percent flicker is less than 3% over the entire dimming range, and includes Cuvée Systems’ GloStart feature, which turns the light on at low dimming levels (i.e. <10%).
Cuvee CEO Ray Chock highlights, “This new series of drivers enables a new level of miniaturization in fixture design, while also providing architectural grade performance with superior flicker and phase cut dimming.” Backed by the Cuvée Systems and Luminus five-year driver plus COB system warranty, these drivers offer long-term confidence where small form factors, precise lighting control, quality of light and high reliability are critical factors. Tom Jory, Luminus VP of Illumination Marketing adds, “our customers leverage the tiny form factor to build smaller luminaires and they also enjoy peace of mind knowing that a series of lights on one dimmer will match perfectly, even at low dimming levels.”

Cuvée’s new low-voltage, high-current LED driver delivers up to 36A for industrial, medical, and entertainment applications
Unique off-the shelf driver offers150W capability for use with ultra-high-power LEDs, eliminating the need to build your own.
SAN JOSE, Calif., September 23, 2020 – Cuvée Systems has announced its LVHC Series of LED drivers specifically designed for low-voltage, high-current applications that are common to entertainment, industrial, and medical lighting solutions. Supporting output current up 36 Amps, the 150 Watt rated drivers offer custom pulse shape control and active thermal management to monitor LED temperature, current, and voltage.
- Standard, off-the-shelf driver replaces in-house design resources, support and custom driver development
- With its compact size, it is designed to be embedded into larger systems
“We’ve eliminated the need to develop in-house custom drivers for low-voltage, high-current applications,” said Ray Chock, CEO of Cuvée Systems. “The LVHC Series drivers were developed and tested with a wide range of Luminus Specialty LEDs ranging from a few amps to tens of amps. We’ve integrated pulse control and LED monitoring to ensure the health and reliability of the system under these high-power conditions.”
Many of the specialty LEDs available today are designed for thousands not hundreds of milliamps. “Our specialty LEDs are deployed in a broad variety of systems including medical endoscopes, analytic instruments, industrial equipment such as machine vision, and more, each with its own unique set of precise LED driving requirements” said Stephane Bellosguardo, VP of Product Marketing for Specialty Lighting at Luminus Devices. “In the absence of suitable off-the-shelf drivers, our customers have had to develop their own solutions. With Cuvée’s new LVHC series, they can choose a standard, full-featured, cost-effective driver to jump-start their projects and can keep their own development resources focused on their areas of expertise.”
Cuvée’s new LVHC Series drivers are available immediately without minimum order quantities. As with other Cuvée LED drivers, when used with Luminus LEDs, Cuvée offers a combined system warranty that covers both the LED and Driver.
