TUALATIN, Ore. — March 21, 2017 — CUI’s Power Group today announced the addition of 30 W and 40 W desktop ac-dc power adapters to its portfolio of DoE Level VI and CoC Tier 2 compliant external power supplies. http://www.cui.com/level-vi-external-ac-dc-power-supplies  The SDI30-U, SDI30-UD, SDI40-U, and SDI40-UD series are all designed to meet the current average efficiency and no-load power requirements mandated by the US Department of Energy (DoE) under the Level VI standard. All models also meet the European Union’s (EU) proposed CoC Tier 2 directive, under review to become law in 2018, which looks to further tighten the efficiency requirements enforced by Level VI while adding a new power consumption limit at 10% load levels. Both 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.
The SDI30 and SDI40 series are available with C8 or C14 inlets and single output voltages of 12, 15, 19, and 24 Vdc. Both series are housed in a compact package measuring 4.37 x 2.05 x 1.27 in (111 x 52 x 32.3 mm) with a wide universal input voltage range of 90 to 264 Vac. The adapters carry UL/cUL, GS, PSE, and CE marks and meet the radiated and conducted emission requirements for FCC Part 15B Class B. Protections for over voltage and short circuit are also included.
Featuring no-load power consumption less than 0.075 W, these external desktop ac-dc power supplies are ideal for a variety of consumer, industrial, and ITE applications where energy consumption is a concern.
The SDI30-U, SDI30-UD, SDI40-U, and SDI40-UD series are available immediately with prices starting at $14.58 per unit at 100 pieces through distribution. Please contact CUI for OEM pricing. http://www.cui.com/contact
