Gardasoft PP1660

PP1600 LED Strobe Controller

Key features:

  • 16 channel LED lighting controllers
  • Pulsing up to 20A per channel
  • 8 trigger inputs
  • Ethernet or RS232 interface options
  • Designed for new generation LEDs
  • Compatible with nearly any LED lighting assembly available today
  • 2A continuous output
  • 1µs minimum pulse width

Application benefits:

  • Very fast bright strobing for freezing motion
  • Very repeatable lighting intensity
  • Driving the LEDs with a constant current, rather than voltage
  • Ability to pulse the output at a higher current to achieve a higher output intensity
  • Pulsing turns the LEDs off when not in use, increasing their MTBF rates, reducing downtime

Available on backorder


To get the very best out of your LED lighting solution, in terms of brightness stability and control, the lights should be driven from a current source, not a nominal voltage supply. The Gardasoft controllers are current sources. The PP1600 series LED lighting controller offers 16 output channels which are independently controlled.

You have two options regarding communication; RS232 (PP1660 range) or Ethernet (PP1620 range). The standard versions offer a maximum pulse current of 20A. There are other options which reduce the maximum pulse current to 2A. Each channel can be individually configured to output continuously; or pulsed based on an external trigger signal or internal timer.
