18W desktop adapter is available in four outputs spanning 12–48V
Phihong USA has introduced a low-cost, low-profile 18W desktop adapter series that delivers higher efficiency performance than previous models. Designated the PSAA18U series, the adapters are compliant with the US DOE’s level VI energy efficiency requirements, featuring input power saving of <0.075W at no-load and are available in four DC output voltages (12V, 15V, 24V and 48V), making them suited for use in a wide range of consumer electronics applications, including: portable equipment, access devices, peripherals, and network hubs.
In addition to satisfying DOE Level VI and European Union Code of Conduct (CoC) V5, Tier 2 high-efficiency standards, the 18W desktop adapters are also certified to UL/cUL, CE, and CB safety specifications and have built-in over-voltage, over-current and short-circuit protections
“Consumer demands for smaller, lower-cost, and higher efficiency electronics have a direct influence on OEM’s purchasing decisions, so we designed our PSAA18U series desktop adapters to satisfy all three demands for a range of consumer electronics devices requiring between 12 and 48V output power,” said Keith Hopwood, vice president of Phihong.
PSAA18U series desktop adapters have a non-vented case that measures 103x49x33.5mm, weigh 140g and are available with a C14 AC input connector. Operating temperatures for the series span 0° to +40°C and allowable humidity spans 0–90%. Pricing for single-unit quantities starts at under $21.
