MeanWell HLG-185H-48A Driver


12 in stock (can be backordered)




Constant voltage/ constant current “A” version of 48V driver is voltage and current adjustable for maximum utility with CLU048-1818 and CLU058-1825.


Also works with 36V COBs like CLU048-1212 or CXB3590 at reduced total power output (approximately 150W) while allowing an upgrade path to 50V cobs later on. For maximum current the -36A drivers are a better fit for 36V cobs

Constant voltage/ constant current “A” version drivers offer the following advantages:

  • lower maximum voltage for safer operation
  • maximum flexibility for expansion – any number of COBs can be added later on. Every COB added increase efficiency of entire array


Note that dimming for “A” versions are via the potentiometer fixed to the unit- they do not offer remote dimming. Drivers are dimmable to approximately 20% of total load

Also please note all COBS must be same series of similar voltage profile, you cant mix 1212 and 1818 as the lower voltage cob will not light


Max current: 4.25A can power the following combination of COBs:


3 1212@ 52.3W each (157W max), 4@38W ea (152W max) , 5@ 29.8W ea (149W), or 6@ 24.6W ea (148W), etc.
3 1818@ 75.3W  each (226W max) or 4@ 55W ea (220W max), 5@ 43.4W ea (217W), or 6@ 35.9W ea (215W), etc.
3 1825@ 73.3W each (220W max) or 4@ 54W ea (216W max)


2 3590@ 76W each (152W max) or 3@49.5W ea (149W max) or 4@ 36W (144W)
2 3070@ 79W  each (158W max) or 3@ 50.5W ea (152W max) or 4@ 37W (148W)
