Phihong's PSAA18U series of low-profile desktop adapters meets U.S. DOE Level VI energy-efficiency requirements, providing no-load power consumption of less than 0.075 W. The power adapters have an AC input voltage range of 90V to 264V and offer a choice of four DC output voltages: 12V, 15V, 24V and 48V.

In addition to DOE Level VI, the devices meet EU CoC V5, Tier 2 efficiency standards, and are certified to UL/cUL 60950-1, CE and CB safety specifications. Each unit furnishes built-in overvoltage, overcurrent, and short-circuit protection. PSAA18U adapters are suitable for a wide range of consumer electronics applications, including portable equipment, access devices, peripherals and network hubs.

Units come in non-vented cases with dimensions of 103mm × 49mm × 33.5mm (4.06in × 1.93in × 1.32in), each equipped with a C14 AC input connector. Operating temperatures for the series span 0°C to +40°C. Allowable humidity ranges from 0% to 90%.

Prices for the PSAA18U power adapters start at $21 in single-unit quantities.
