Mean Well Adds 280W “Green” AC-DC Adaptors

Mean Well has expanded its ac-dc green adaptor line with the introduction of the GS280 series (280W). The new GS280 adaptor joins the existing line-up of 5W, 6W, 12W, 15W, 18W, 25W, 36W, 40W, 60W, 90W, 120W, 160W, and 220W units. The company now offers a complete green adaptor line ranging from 5 to 280W and ready to provide power for diverse applications of electronic products.

Using standard IEC320-C14 inlet as the input connector, GS280 series are single output desktop green adaptors. They comply with worldwide energy regulations, including ErP second step (Energy-related Products, 2009/125/EC), EISA 2007 (Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007) of USA, NRCan of Canada and MEPS (Minimum Energy Performance Standards) of Australia. Possessing very low 'no load power consumption' (<0.5W) and up to 94% of high efficiency, the whole series are real energy-saving at both standby mode and active mode.

GS280 series are 90-264Vac full range input switchers with PFC function. Using up-to-date LLC topology and synchronize rectifier, they possess up to 94% of high efficiency which can be only cooled by free air convection from -30 to +60 degrees C. With earth ground pin and enclosed by UL 94V-0 rated plastic case, these Class I units can effectively prevent users from electrical shock. Output voltage range from 12 to 48 Vdc also fulfill the requirements of various electronic equipment.

Other standard functions include: LED indicator, protections for short circuit, overload, over voltage, and over temperature. Furthermore, GS280 acquired global safety/EMC certificates per UL, CUL, TUV, BSMI, CCC, PSE (12~24V), CB, FCC, and CE which greatly guarantee the safety and reliability for all different applications such as POS system, commercial electronic equipment, industrial equipment, or any instruments that require low noise by fanless design.
