Share Article

DA12-M and DA18-M available in both fixed and interchangeable plug configurations

Emerson Network Power, a business of Emerson and the global leader in enabling Business-Critical Continuity™, today announced two new wall-mount switching power supplies with medical and IT equipment safety approvals. The DA12-M (12 W) and DA18-M(18 W) adapters are available in both fixed and interchangeable AC plug configurations and meet stringent Energy Star Level V efficiency standards. The Level V efficiency mark corresponds to specific demonstrated minimum active and no-load efficiency levels and a power factor requirement.

The Emerson Network Power DA12-M is available with 5 V or 12 V outputs. The DA18-M has a 15 V output and in its interchangeable version, the US and EU plugs can be inserted straight or at a 90-degree angle. Both models feature universal 90 - 264 Vac inputs in multiple AC plug configurations. US, UK, EU and AU plugs are available on all models, with C8 available for the interchangeable versions only.

The DA12-M and DA18-M feature a slim form factor – enabling the use of multiple adapters in dual wall outlet configurations. To ensure best-in-class power reliability, the new power adapters feature comprehensive protections against overvoltage, overtemperature and short-circuit/overload conditions. The flexible power adapters also support a wide range of ambient operating temperatures from 0 to 40 degrees Celsius, have a ground leakage maximum current of 100 ¼A at 50/60 Hz and provide constant voltage/current output. In addition, the adapters comply with rigorous EN55022-B and FCC part 15 Level B EMC standards for conducted noise, feature built-in EMI filtering (CISPR 22 Class B), and boast an extensive array of ITE and medical safety approvals including UL, cUL, TUV, AS/NZS, CB and CE certifications. They are also fully Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) compliant per EU directive 2002/95/EC.

Emerson Network Power’s new wall-mount power supplies are available for immediate delivery at US $5.99 (DA12-M) and $8.22 (DA18-M) per unit in production quantities. For more information, visit
