External Power Adaptor Addresses Efficiency Initiatives
Addressing efficiency initiatives for power devices such as the "80 Plus" program, the AD72 freestanding ac-dc power adapter from Emerson Network Power delivers a regulated output of 16 VDC at 4.5 A with a typical efficiency of 84 percent. The universal-input 72-W switch-mode device has fused a 2-pin (type C8) IEC320 ac input receptacle and the dc output is provided via a 6' (1.85 m) cable with a standard 2.1-mm right-angle barrel plug. The supplies include an internal EMI filter and meet EN55022-B and FCC part 15 Level B EMC standards as well as EN61000-4-2 and -4 levels 2. The power adapters carry safety approvals including UL/CSA/NEMKO 60950-1, and have a full-load ambient operating temperature range from +5°C to +40°C without derating. Pricing starts at $35 each in OEM quantities.
