Can LED power supplies be connected in parallel?

MEAN WELL LED power supply does not have a parallel “current sharing” function, so it is not suitable for parallel connection. For high power requirements, please select higher wattage power supply or divide LED load into smaller subsections to be powered by individual power supplies. Example of such LED configuration can be found in figure 5. As shown in fig. 5, the connection between -V of the LPC-35 units should be severed and not connected in common. On the contrary, small wattage LED loads can be connected in parallel and be powered by a single high wattage power supply. But the ability to divide current evenly must be taken into consideration.
