    Who makes these LED's and External Driver?

    Does anyone know the make of these LED's or this external driver that controls the power supply? Its not a dimmer control. There is no brand or number on either device. 2008 38 Cabo express. light.jpgDriver.jpglight.jpgDriver.jpg

    Think I would start with contacting DRSA in North Palm Beach.
    The metal part of that fixture looks very similar to some of their fixtures we used to have.
    If not they can probably put you on the right track.

    They look generic China-built to me.

    If you are lucky they *may* be a bit higher quality IMTRA but I doubt you will find replacements after 14 years--a lot has changed.

    If you know about the wattage rating of the fixtures (5-ish watts I would guess) and quantity of fixtures, the you can make an educated substitution.

    The driver/power supply looks 120V to 12V and something like 30W or so; always safe to go bigger.

    If you want quality and service and don't mind paying for it, buy IMTRA or Scanvik.

    A nice mid-point is to do as Cricket suggested and let a company assemble a system that they will stand behind.

    Perhaps price is an issue, the search Amazon for LED recessed lights and converters or supplies.

    Because you have a marine application, be sure and add "IP67" to your search to get sufficient water protection.

    All of our lighting is now LED. Imtra in the salon and heads because they had the correct sizes for our cutouts. Lumitec Moray Flex LED under all valances and gunnel, which is really great. Quick Marine for all of the bedrooms and companionway.
    Lumitec in the hardtop and bridge overhang. DRSA in the engine room.
    Lumitec underwater fixtures in transom.
    Some on 110v transformers, some 24v DC.
    All of the Lumitecs dim and or change color with cycling the on/off switch.
    For all other dimming we're using DC dimmers from Blue Seas operated via Vimar momentary push switches, one for brighter, one for lower.
    Everything is using just 2 wires, no separate dimming wires.

    Nice! Good rundown.

    I just observed a multicolor installation where one can switch from white to red on stair lighting, which is a good reason to consider dimmable multicolor (which I have not yet done).

    Thank you all for the reply. They are DSRA and I was able to find the replacement driver on LED supply.com.
