WALL MOUNT POWER SUPPLIES

Wide Selection of Wall Mount Power Supplies from APS

 
Wall Mount Power Supplies are a type of external power supply, enclosed in a non-flammable plastic enclosure with an AC plug that mechanically mounts the power supply to the AC outlet.  A DC output lead connects the wall mount power supply's DC output voltage to the device being powered.  APS Wall Mount Power Supplies feature Universal AC Input for operation over a 90~264VAC range. 

All APS wall mount power supplies have been qualified to meet internation safety standards for ITE / Industrial applications (IEC/EN/UL 62368-1) and/or Medical application (IEC/EN/UL 60601-1).  Additional energy standards relating to no-load input-power limitations and operational efficiency have been adopted over the years and all APS power Supplies comply with DoE (Level VI) | EU ErP 5 standards, ensuring your devices will comply with any energy / efficiency requirement around the globe.

Common names other than Wall Mount Power Supplies include wall plug, AC adapter, plug-in adapter, adapter block and wall wart. Wall Mount Power Supplies for battery-powered equipment may be described as chargers or rechargers.  Wall Mount Power Supplies are used with devices that cannot afford the size / heat or safety compliance challenges required of internal power conversion circuits. Wall Mount power supplies are used to power devices directly or to both charge batteries in addition to powering the equipment. Use of an external power supply allows portability and makes it unnecessary to produce equipment for use only with a specified power source; the same device can be powered from 120 VAC or 230 VAC mains, vehicle or aircraft battery by using a different adapter.

Advantages of Wall Mount Power Supplies include:

  • Safety – Wall Mount power supplies can free product designers from safety issues. Most devices using Wall Mount power supplies utilize voltages less than 56 VDC which meet SELV standards, making the device safe and freeing it from compliance to products that draw power from AC Mains, which are considered unsafe.
  • Heat reduction – Converting AC voltage to a DC Voltage required by devices for operation consumes space and generates heat.  Wall Mount power supplies allw for device miniaturization and keeps the generated heat out of the device, improving reliability and longevity of the device.
  • Electrical noise reduction – Power Conversion from switching power supplies can generate unwanted EMI / raidiated noise. Wall Mount power supplies keep potential noise from entering the device, providing only a clean DC voltage to the device.
  • Ease of replacement – Wall Mount power supplies  can be replaced quickly by a user without the need to have the powered device repaired.
