DCH3 series AC-DC power adapters feature universal 100 to 254 Vac inputs offered in four models (US, EU, UK and recently introduced AU models), each configured with different input plugs to suit the region of the world in which they are intended to be used. In addition, all four power adapters generate a regulated 5 V output with a power capability of 3 watts and meet rigorous Energy Star Level IV efficiency standards.

The series offers comprehensive protection against overvoltage and short-circuit conditions, as well as built-in EMI filtering and extensive safety approvals including UL/cUL60950-1 and EN60950-1 VDE. The flexible power adapter series also supports a wide range of ambient operating temperatures from 0 to 45 degrees Celsius, have a best-in-class ground leakage maximum current of 10 µA and provide constant voltage/current output.

DCH3 series AC-DC power adapters are available for immediate delivery. Standard lead-time for stock quantities is eight weeks and pricing starts at US $3.99 per unit. For more information, visit www.powerconversion.com/products/websheet/324/DCH3.
