Level V-Rated Adapter Products From 2-120W

Phihong USA now offers a complete line of Level V-rated standard adapters, as well as passive Power-over-Ethernet products, ensuring that global OEMs can simplify specification and purchase of products that meet worldwide energy efficiency standards. Level V compliance is now a requirement for products to receive a CE marking, which is necessary if they are to be sold in the European Union.

To meet Level V specifications, a standard external power supply must meet the minimum efficiency requirements as declared by the European Union's Energy Related Products Directive 2009/125/EC, based on the now sunset ENERGY STAR EPS version 2.0 specifications. For more specific information, users may download a PDF of the final ErP Directive from http://www.eceee.org/Eco_design/products/battery_chargers/FinalReg_EPS.

The Level V-rated adapters are available in 5-56V desktop versions with outputs of 20W to 120W and 3-56V wall-mount versions with outputs of 2-60W, including some with interchangeable AC clips for worldwide compatibility.

Additionally, several of Phihong's Power-over-Ethernet products are Level V-compliant: the POE16R-560, a 16W wall plug adapter; the POE31X Series, a 30W midspan; and the POE61X Series, a 60W midspan.
