I. Globally certified cables: input/output/dimming wiring upgrade
The HLG family were originally planned to use UL type cables; when sold to certain countries (e.g. China, Australia, Japan, etc.), the wiring must be changed according to local regulation and the end product need to be certified in turn, which is a very time-consuming flow. Besides, there will be MOQ requirement for the specific cables; the stock and cost for these cables are also a problem, compared to the standard models. In order to resolve the issues regarding stock and cost management resulting from local regulations and requirements for cables, and to enhance product application scopes, MEAN WELL introduces the industry-leading globally certified cables- compliant with UL (for North America), VDE (for Europe), CCC (for China), KC (for Korea), RCM (for Australia), BSMI (for Taiwan), IEC 60245-4 Cabo (for Brazil) and PSE (for Japan)- to the suitable models of HLG family [Note1].
With the globally certified cables MEAN WELL introduces, HLG family will be upgraded as the only standard LED drivers with UL, ENEC, CCC, KC, PSE, and BSMI in the market as well as 7-year warranty that benefits distributor partners and end customers not only on product stock management but also the promotion for LED light market which continues growing.
II. Labelling layout and format change
As the input/output/dimming wiring of HLG family have been upgraded to globally certified cables (Spec: SJOW 17AWG 2C & H05RN-F 1.0mm2 )[Note1], to enable customers to clearly identify the wires, MEAN WELL also change the label stickers to the new version. Please refer to the instructions on the next page for a description of the revised information..
[Note1] Some models of HLG family are beyond the specifications of global certification cable regulations. Those models cannot be simultaneously upgraded but keeping the original wires. For more details, please contact MEAN WELLs sales representatives or technical service department.
MEAN WELL will continue improving market competitiveness for products. For the revision work advised above, MEAN WELL has finished updating certificates series in succession. The incurred cost increase due to this upgrade will be 100% taken in by MEAN WELL that no corresponding adjustment will be applied to the pricing. Should there be any questions with respect to this revision, please refer to the latest specification announced on MEAN WELLs corporate website or contact with MEAN WELL sales representatives.
