Phihong has developed a series of replacement products for non-compliant linear adapters. Designated the PLA Series, the universal input California Energy Commission (CEC)-compliant products are said to be very close in cost to linear adapters while meeting the latest energy regulations. The adapter uses one primary control circuit, and the devices are available as fixed wall plugs (1.3W, 2W, 3W, 5W). Features include high efficiency, double insulation and short circuit protection with auto recovery. The devices have a no-load power consumption of <0.3W, zero minimum load, and they meet the minimum efficiency required by Energy Star and CEC. The products have a wide input voltage range of 90V AC to 264V AC. Phihong’s series of linear replacement adapters are RoHS-compliant and meet relevant worldwide safety and EMC requirements. Pricing is $3.38 each in quantities of 1,000.
