Phihong has developed a new compact, energy-efficient 20W interchangeable plug adapter series. The PSAA20R adapter series, available in single 12-, 24-, and 48V outputs, features interchangeable AC input clips, sold separately, which enable widespread compatibility, as well as allow for the use of a single part number, simplifying OEMs’ inventory and approval processes. Ideal for peripherals, network equipment, gaming machines, and point of sale equipment, the series is also ENERGY STAR Level V, EPS Version 2.0-compliant. ‘The PSAA20R Series is just one of many new, energy-efficient designs that we are preparing to introduce,’ said Keith Hopwood, vice president of marketing for Phihong. ‘Fulfilling our commitment to environmental responsibility, as well as the needs of our OEM partners, our new 20W interchangeable plug adapter series is highly efficient, offers no-load power saving, and is compatible with products designed for use in US, European, UK and Australian markets.’
Designed for maximum efficiency as well as compatibility, PSAA20R Series adapters feature a maximum no-load power draw of 0.3W and an average operating efficiency of greater than 81%.
PSAA20R adapters are also Class II double-insulated, meet Class B EMI standards, and feature over-current, over-voltage, and short-circuit protection. Additionally, the 20W adapters bear cUL/UL, CE, SAA, and C-Tick safety markings and approvals. The series is rated for operation from 0 degrees C to +40 degrees C.
Compact in size, PSAA20R Series adapters measure 2.82? x 1.97? x 1.31? and weigh 6 ounces. They terminate with a 2.1mm x 5.5mm barrel output connector at the end of a 1.5-meter (4′ 11.05?) DC cord.
