Energy-Efficient 30W Universal Desktop Adapter Series

Phihong has developed a 30W, universal, three-wire input desktop adapter series, which it plans to release in the near future. Designated the PSC30U-V Series, the adapters are available in 12-, 24-, and 48VDC outputs; all of which are ENERGY STARĀ® EPS Version 2.0- and EISA-compliant. Featuring a low-profile design, non-vented, spill-proof case, and Class B EMI compliance, the 30W adapters are ideal for portable equipment, networking, peripherals, and gaming machines.

Surpassing the minimum efficiency requirements of both EISA and ENERGY STAR EPS Version 2.0, PSC30U-V Series adapters operate above 83.5% average efficiency and feature a maximum no load power draw of 0.3W. The adapters also feature over-voltage protection with automatic shut down and recovery after AC power reset, over-current protection with auto restart, and short-circuit protection. Also, in addition to ENERGY STAR Level V efficiency markings, PSC30U-V Series adapters bear cUL/UL 60950-1, TUV 60950-1, CE, SAA, and C-Tick safety approvals and markings.

PSC30U-V Series adapters measure 4.59" x 2.17" x 1.24", feature IEC 320 C14 inlet receptacles, and weigh 8.82 ounces. Each adapter is terminated with a locking DC jack with 2.5mm center pins and comes standard with a removable DC output cord terminated with a 2.1mm output barrel plug. The series is rated for operation from 0 degrees C to +40 degrees C.

Pricing for the PSC30U-V Series adapters is $24.42 each at 25 piece quantities
