[color_box title=”Adjusting the Output of the Mean Well Driver”]The CREE XR-E series of LEDs is rated for 1000mA max. By simply connecting our dimmable drivers to only 12 LEDs in series will overdrive them by 30% or more.
The Mean Well ELN 60-48 series of drivers have an internal rheostat or pot that you can turn counter clockwise to lower the output current.[/color_box]
You will need a standard Phillips screwdriver and a volt ohm meter. Simply start by unscrewing the four housing screws and remove the waterproof cover. Then turn the rheostat in the lower left corner full counter clockwise. This is the drivers lowest setting.
[warning_box]CAUTION: ALWAYS ENSURE YOUR DRIVER IS UNPLUGGED WHEN CONNECTING WIRES![/warning_box]
Once you have it powered up and you are showing a reading, slowly turn the rheostat clockwise till you have approximately 700-800mA. This is our recommended max setting as it allows for a buffer and driving your LEDs harder will lower their life span and not give you that much more light.
