F/ART IP65 + IP68 resin LED drivers are hermetic and impermeable to water and dust.

Thanks to the patented technology (patent pending) these made in Italy power supplies have a high quality standard and resist even in adverse weather conditions.
The particular resin coating also makes them suitable to light up swimming pools and greenhouses where there is a high humidity percentage and in poultry plants with ammonia vapors.

For a quality LED lighting project, the choice of power supply makes the difference: it affects the duration of the entire lighting system, the performance, the consumption and also the installation.

 

What “IP68 rating” does mean?

The IP rating classifies and assesses the degree of protection provided by mechanical casing against the intrusion of solid particles (such as body parts, objects and dust) and liquids.
The code is published by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), European standard EN60529.

Two numbers follow the letter “IP”:

  • IP 6- First number: the level of protection that the casing provides against the intrusion of solids (from 0 to 6)
  • IP -8 Second number: the level of protection that the casing provides against the intrusion of liquids (from 0 to 8)

IP68 indicates the maximum protection against solids and liquids: waterproof and dustproof.

F/ART LED DRIVER are IP65 + IP68, so they offer the maximum protection against solids and liquids, ensuring the correct operation even in diving conditions

 

VIRGO & SAGIT: IP68 waterproof and dustproof LED drivers

The IP65 + IP68 degree indicates maximum protection from the intrusion of solids and liquids; the heart of the LED driver is protected from dust and it is also waterproof: it can be immersed in water for a prolonged time and withstand strong jets of water from all directions.

The Virgo and Sagit are made in Italy LED drivers, designed and manufactured at F/ART’s factory in Treviso.

They are available in the water-resistant (waterproof) and dust-resistant (dustproof) variant.

 

FAQ LED DRIVER IP68

  • What models of waterproof power supplies are available?

Virgo and Sagit are the two families of the F/ART brand, both with several models available (12V, 24V, 48V).
Virgo is a slim and compact LED driver with power range between 30W and 100W, while Sagit has a standard size and reaches up to 150W of power.

  • Can IP68 & IP65 LED drivers stand in the rain?

Yes, if properly installed and if the connections to the LED are performed in a workmanlike manner

  • What is the maximum waterproof rating of F/ART's IP68 LED drivers?

Virgo and Sagit IP68 have been tested for one hour in one meter deep water

  • Can I install these Led drivers outdoors and in bad weather?

Yes, our power supplies are water resistant and withstand a wide range of temperatures (from -30°C to + 50°C), and can be stored between -40°C and + 80°C.

  • Is it possible to request LED driver customizations?

Yes, we can create custom LED drivers with a minimum quantity of pieces.

  • Why a resin encapsulation and not a plastic or metal case?

It is a patented process experimented previously with neon transformers. F/ART’s resin completely envelops the heart of the power supply and protects it from water, dust and shocks. It dissipates heat and gives great strength to the product.
