Level V AC Adapter

CUI Inc's power line, V-Infinity, has announced a new line-up of high efficiency external power ac adapters. CUI's latest release includes 12 and 24 W wall adapters and a 12 W desktop adapter. All meet Level V efficiency standards, are Energy Star version 2.0 certified, and exceed the current US EISA 2007 efficiency regulations.

Offered in a wide range of output voltages, these high efficiency adapters are the first in an expanded line-up of Level V products planned for 2010.The EPSA and ETSA series include UL safety approvals and can operate off a universal input (90-264 Vac). Output voltages supported are: a) 5 V, 6 V, 9 V, 12 V, 15 V, 18 V, and 24 V (12 W desktop); b) 5 V, 6 V, 9 V, and 12 V (12 W wall); and c) 12 V, 15 V, and 24 V (24 W wall). Short-circuit and over-voltage protections are included. With typical efficiency above 82% and no load power consumption <0.3 W, this series is ideal for applications where power consumption is a critical consideration.

"As customers continue to seek more energy efficient solutions, CUI has begun to expand our adapter offerings to meet this growing demand," stated Kraig Kawada, CUI's V-Infinity Product Manager. The EPSA and ETSA series are available through Digi-Key with prices starting at $17.91 per unit. Please contact CUI for OEM pricing.
