I have recently acquired several Sylvania-Osram LEDstixx brand LED lighting modules from a local convenience store that was being remodeled. Before I knew any specifics on the modules, I thought that they were directly powered from the mains supply. Once I had them in hand, I found out that they were powered by 24VDC supplies also available from Sylvania. My question is this, I am planning to use these as garage lighting to replace florescent fixtures operated by a wall switch. Should I use a linear 24V power supply or a Switching supply to power these? I want them to be operational for the long-term and (hopefully) not have to replace them any time soon.
