Manual/Analog LED Controllers

Manual/Analog Controllers

Mightex BLS-1000-2, BLS-3000-2, BLS-13000-1, and BLS-18000-1 LED controllers are designed for driving Mightex LED sources. The controllers have two operation modes:

Manual Mode: the output current can be controlled by manually turning the knobs; or
Trigger Mode: the output current can be controlled via an external analog input signal between 0 ~ 5V.

The control mode is selected with a slide switch on the front panel, and the factory default is “Manual” mode. BLS-1000-2 and BLS-3000-2 provide Maximum Current Selection DIP switches on the rear panel, which allow the user to set the maximum output current of the channel to 500/750/1,000mA for BLS-1000-2, and 1,000/2,000/3,000mA for BLS-3000-2, respectively. The factory default is set to 500mA for BLS-1000-2 and 1,000mA for BLS-3000-2, respectively. BLS-13000-1 and BLS-18000-1 has only one maximum current setting of 13,000mA and 18,000mA, respectively.

When the controller is set to “Trigger” mode, the output current is fully controlled by the input analog signal (0-5V).
