A power supply is an electronic component that handles the task of supplying electricity to an electric load or an object that needs electricity to run. The primary function of a power supply is to convert one form of electricity to another, bridging the gap between electrical supply and electrical load. Because of this electrical conversion, power supplies are sometimes referred to as electric power converters. Power supplies come in varying shapes and sizes. Some power supplies are small and discrete, some are stand-alone, while others are built right into a product along with their electrical load (electronic device or tool). Built-in power supply examples are products such as personal computers, cell phones and other consumer electronics.
All power supplies must obtain the energy it supplies, for the load as well as any energy it consumes while performing the electrical conversion task. How your power supply obtains electricity depends on its design, electrical energy can come from many different sources. Some power supplies obtain electrical energy from electrical energy transmission systems, energy storage components like batteries, electromechanical systems, alternators as well as solar power sources. Some sources of electrical power even come from additional power supplies.
Another form of Power Supply or Electrical Power Converter
All power supplies have a power input that receives the energy from a source. They also have a power output which is designed to deliver the redefined or converted electricity to the load (Unit needing electricity). Most of our Mean Well Power Supplies are built with a power input and output that consist of electrical connectors or hardwired circuit connections. While some power supplies are designed with other I/O systems for external monitoring and control.

Soon after the new generation Level VI desktop type power supply ~ ENP-120 series (120W) and programmable desktop type battery charger ~ ENC-120 series (120W) of MEAN WELL were released to the market, the ENP and ENC family have received positive responses. In order to further fulfill the application demands for higher wattage, MEAN WELL is pleased to launch the new 180W/240W ~ ENP-180/240 and ENC-180/240 series.
The features and the dimensions of these four series follow the ENP/ENC-120 characteristics respectively, accepting 90~264VAC input, built-in active PFC function, standard 7” width, complete safety regulations (UL/CUL/CB/CE/FCC). Furthermore, the desktop power supply ENP family complies with EISA 2007/DoE Level VI, NRCan, EU ErP and CoC Version 5; the programmable charger ENC family provides the programmable function and MCU control that the users, with a personal computer, the smart battery charging programmer SBP-001 and its specific software, are able to adjust the charging mode and parameters on the basis of different battery characteristics. Therefore, the products of these three families are very suitable to be applied to radio system backup solution, land mobile radio system, surveillance system and electric scooter charger applications.

IDLC/IDPC-65 Series ~ 65W Plastic Housing/ PCB Type Flicker Free Constant Current Output LED Driver (with PFC)
Once the 45W IDLC-45 and IDPC-45 series which with flicker free design of MEAN WELL are released to the market, they have become popular and widely adopted by indoor LED lighting system designers that MEAN WELL decides to raise the output wattage from 45W to 65W and is pleased to unveil the 65W IDLC-65 (plastic housing) and IDPC-65 (PCB type) series.
In order to meet the design and the installation requirements of the indoor luminaires, these two series adopt co-design work (like IDLC-45 and IDPC-45 series) that the differences are merely in the appearance and the mechanism. They both have the same electrical specifications like accepting 180~295VAC input, with built-in active PFC function, providing various models with 700mA/1050mA/1400mA/1750mA constant current output and the highest working efficiency up to 89%. They are compliant with UL8750, ENEC EN61347-1,-2-13 and GB19510.1, .14 international safety regulations of LED lighting. The standard product has a built-in 2 in 1 dimming function (12V/50mA auxiliary output are also offered for A-Type models) that the LED luminaire system manufacturers can take advantage of higher flexibility while planning the layout. These two series are very suitable to be applied to the indoor LED luminaires requiring flicker free and low power consumption, such as LED panel lighting and LED flood lighting.

ODLC-45/65 Series (45W/65W Plastic Housing Flicker Free Constant Current Output LED Driver with PFC)
Soon after two flicker free design indoor LED drivers, the IDLC family (plastic housing type) and the IDPC family (PCB board type) are released to the market, MEAN WELL keeps working on enlarging the product line of flicker free function and is pleased to unveil the new ODLC family (cable type) ~ ODLC-45(45W)/65(65W) series.
This product is the co-design work with IDLC and IDPC family— they all adopt constant current output mode, equipped with built-in active PFC function, offer the same electrical specifications for models with identical output wattage, operate with the up to 86% highest working efficiency and comply with UL8750, ENEC EN61347-1,-2-13 and GB19510.1, .14 international safety regulations of LED lighting. The standard product has a built-in 2 in 1 dimming function (the models with12V/50mA auxiliary output are also offered) that give LED luminaire system designers higher flexibility while planning the layout. This product is very suitable to be applied to the indoor LED luminaires requiring flicker free and low power consumption, such as LED panel lighting and LED flood lighting.
