Level VI Wall Plug AC-DC Power Supplies Designed to Meet Tightened Efficiency Regulations

6 W, 12 W, 18 W and 24 W Models Target North American, Japanese and European Markets

TUALATIN, Ore. – CUI Inc today announced a new line of wall plug-in ac-dc power supplies for the US, Japanese and European markets. The SWI6, SWI12, SWI18 and SWI24 with either North American or European input blades are designed to meet the stringent average efficiency and no load power requirements mandated by the US Department of Energy (DOE) set to go into effect on February 10, 2016. The new Level VI standards aim to significantly lower the amount of power consumed when the end application is not in use or is no longer connected to the system.  Any domestic or global manufacturer seeking to market their end product with an external adapter in the United States must meet these new performance standards by February 10th.

The 6 W, 12 W, 18 W and 24 W wall plug adapters all feature a wide universal input voltage range of 90~264 Vac and are available in single output voltages of 5, 5.9, 9, 12, 15 and 24 Vdc depending on the series. All models meet the Level VI standard’s no load power consumption requirement of < 0.1 W. Protections for over voltage, over current and short circuit are also included as are a range of dc output connector options.

Models with input blades for North American and Japanese applications offer UL/cUL and PSE safety approvals while models with European input blades come with the CE mark.  All models also meet FCC Part 15 Class B standards for EMI/EMC.

The new SWI6, SWI12, SWI18, and SWI24 series are available immediately with prices starting at 7.95 per unit at 100 pieces through distribution. Please contact CUI for OEM pricing.
