Phihong develops new 60W AC-DC wall plug adapter…
Market’s First 60W Wall-Mounted Adapter is Level V-Efficient
Fremont, CA (September 1, 2011) – Phihong USA, a world leader in power adapter solutions, has announced the release of its 60W R-series wall-mounted adapter with international AC clips, an industry first. The 60W AC-DC adapter, designated the PSA60R series, is available in outputs of 12V, 24V and 56V over a standard DC cable. Designed for applications including gaming machines, networking devices, peripherals and portable equipment, this new power adapter is compliant for Level V efficiency marking, now a requirement for external power supplies for sale in the European Economic Area.
“Traditionally, these higher output models have been restricted by size and weight to desktop styles, but new smaller, high-quality components have made it possible to make reductions in both, allowing the PSA60R to be supported as a wall plug with the full benefits of the R-Series interchangeable AC clips,” said Keith Hopwood, vice president of marketing for Phihong USA.
“Customers may also see significant cost savings using the AC plugs compared to expensive line cords with more support for the worldwide AC standards.”
The double-insulated, Class B EMI power adapter has over-voltage, short-circuit and over-current protections as standard features and has a no-load power draw of less than 0.3W. Additionally the PSA60R features minimum efficiency ratings of 87-92 percent and has safety approval markings from CE, cUL/UL, C-Tick and SAA.
AC clips are available for Argentina, Australia, Brazil, China, Europe, Korea, India, the United Kingdom and the United States. A clip that has an IEC320 C8 input is also available to convert the wall plug into a desktop-style adapter able to be powered by a two-wire line cord. All AC clips are sold separately.
The PSA60R series measures 103mm x 66mm x 40mm and weighs 270g. The standard DC cable which measures 1.25m for the 12V model and 1.5m for the 24V and 56V models is terminated with a standard 5.5mm x 2.1mm straight center positive barrel. For users desiring an alternative DC tip, Phihong offers an in-house service to change DC tips with no minimum order quantity. More information can be obtained by contacting Phihong sales at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Pricing for the PSA60R series starts at $35.10 in single-unit quantities with no AC clip. For more information including product datasheets and an R-series product demonstration, please visit
