The iDrive is a power transformer (otherwise known as a ‘driver’), to step the power down from the mains at 240 volts to 12 volts. It was designed to be suited to LED lighting, which draws significantly less power from the transformers than traditional down lights.
Many transformers were designed for Halogen lighting, and they supply far too much power for LED lights. This often causes flickering and failures in the LED. These older transformers often consume up to 15 watts of power themselves, and create large amounts of heat in your ceiling cavity. Considering the iDrive consumes less than one watt of power, and our down lights only draw 5 watts, there is a significant savings in replacing your old transformers.
iDrives are not supplied with ‘flex cord’, or wall plugs. As a retrofit product, if you already have these types installed, your electrician can keep your old flex cord and just swap the transformer itself – very quickly and easily. Do not try this yourself, use an Australian licensed electrician.
