Plug-In Switchers Meet Green-Power Specs

Here's an off-the-shelf series of wall-warts (small, self-contained, plug-in dc supplies for portable equipment) that not only meets worldwide energy conservation standards but also comes with its own assortment of twist-off power plugs. Advanced Power Solutions' 2K6S series delivers 6 to 12 W from 0- to 264-V 50- or 60-Hz ac inputs (see the figure). Standby consumption is less than 0.5 W. They measure 2.28 by 1.22 by 1.38 in. and come with ac plugs for North American, Asian, European, and British sockets. Overvoltage, overcurrent, and overtemperature protection circuits are part of the circuit.

All standard models are qualified to UL/cUL60950-1/TUV60950-1/PSE/JET Safety Standards and bear the CE Mark. They comply with the European Union's RoHS directive and meet the Level B Emission Standards of both EN55022 and FCC Part 15 Subject J. OEM-quantity pricing is $4.50 each, with a separate charge for the plugs
