For support with LED drivers, Helvar provides a selection of comprehensive tools and documents to assist e.g. with compatibility.
Find the right driver for the right light source in your application! LEDesign is an intuitive tool that gives assistance in designing optimum combinations of Helvar LED modules and drivers, or even custom LED modules. Using LED module’s main input data, the LEDesign tool automates the selection process for compatible LED modules and LED drivers from Helvar’s wide range. LEDesign shows the key electrical and photometrical parameters for the selected combination and indicates whether the LEDs are under or overdriven. What’s more, the tool can also be programmed to display an efficiency graph of the selected LED load, showing how well it will perform. Additionally, the tool allows for very simple energy comparison against traditional light sources. The regularly updated mobile application for Android and iOS users is easy to use online or offline. LEDesign is also available as a browser version at ledesign.helvar.com and for Windows® PC as a desktop version.
NFC Production Programmer is a tool designed for efficient and easy-to-use, continous LED Driver configuration via NFC. It is designed to help the production line with easy-to-read graphical user interface and features which are designed in co-operation with luminaire manufacturers.
Helvar Driver Configurator is a tool for advanced parameter setting of Helvar DALI LED Drivers and Helvar Tunable White iC LED Drivers, now featuring NFC support in addition to DALI line configuration. When programming via DALI line, one great feature is an automatic programming mode, which can be used in luminaire manufacturing phase, or programming driver parameters automatically in installation with up to 64 drivers connected in DALI subnet. Also the possibility to program drivers with command prompt commands and an option to use external software to command programming of drivers makes the Helvar LED Driver configuration process more efficient. For optimal NFC programming flow, separate NFC Production Programmer tool is available (featured below). Helvar Driver Configurator allows you to set LED module parameters for Helvar iC LED drivers to ensure proper operation during color temperature and light intensity control. The tool can also be used to configure other LED driver parameters, like output current, depending on the Helvar DALI LED driver model.
