Temperature Control System (TCS)

The TCS functionality implemented in Magnus Technology’s Harmonic Driver Technology driver-design, provides an intelligent temperature-control monitoring system. The temperature control system acts as a watchdog and continuously measures the ambient temperature inside the driver compartment by a built-in thermal sensor embedded into Harmonic Driver Technology driver chipset. The temperature-sensor triggers the driver-current to be reduced as soon as the ambient temperature inside the fixture increases beyond its specified operating temperature. Due to the availability of a large variety of fixture-designs, the intelligent driver will regulate its power to suit its operation. In case the fixture is however unsuitable for LED applications, the lumen output will be reduced to a level where it no longer delivers sufficient light-output to the user. This is a sign of inappropriate usage of the lamp.
