New Artesyn Wall Mount USB External Power Adapter Families Meet Latest Energy-Efficiency Regulations and add 62368-1 Safety Approvals
Tempe, Ariz. [22 March, 2016] — Artesyn Embedded Technologies today released two new families of wall mount external power adapters with USB output connections that meet the latest energy-efficiency regulations, the DA5 series and DA10 series.
The DA10 series is one of the first power supplies in the industry to be approved to both 60950-1 and 62368-1 safety standards. This aids users as they plan their transition from prescriptive safety standards to hazard-based safety standards.
These compact, low-cost power supplies offer extremely low standby power of less than 75 mW and high average loading efficiency of greater than 76 and 79 percent, respectively. Both series meet new energy saving requirements: European Code of Conduct (CoC) v5 Tier 2 (effective January 1, 2016) and United States Department of Energy (DoE) Level VI (effective February 10, 2016). Both series include ac plug options for most regions of the world.
Artesyn’s integrated primary side regulation chip topology provides a simplified and low-cost design for these new adapters. Both series also feature protection against over-voltage, over-current, short-circuit and over-temperature conditions.
Both power supply series also extend the operating temperature range down to minus 10 degrees Celsius, making them suitable not only for consumer applications but also for more demanding application environments, such as test and measurement, networking and light industrial.
The DA5 and DA10 series wall mount external power adapters are available from Artesyn’s network of global distributors.
