I doubt many companies would produce a driver with such extreme output specs for DIY use, though I have seen voltages that high in some of the cheaper chinese led fixtures.


Actually there are several companies that produce some wicked-large LED drivers, I've seen (if I recall correctly) Meanwells and Thomas Research drivers that go up into the 100-200v range (DC output).
