Phihong USA has expanded its adapter offering with an 18W, 3-wire input 48VDC output version. Designated the PSC18U-480(P)-R, the adapter meets California's CEC regulation, as well as the federal government's Energy Independence and Security Act that went into effect on July 1. The PSC18U-480(P)-R is ideal for VoIP telephone and videoconferencing

applications because it does not inject into the phone line the audible humming noise that is associated with the performances of many other adapters.

"Now more than ever, these energy-efficient adapters are a smart solution for OEMs because environmental regulations are becoming more widespread and will continue to do so around the world," said Keith Hopwood, VP of marketing for Phihong USA.

The PSC18U-480 (P)-R has cUL/UL60950-1, CE, and TUV EN60950-1 safety approvals. The low-cost, Efficiency Level IV-compliant adapters meet Class B emissions levels while overcoming the issue of an audible humming noise being introduced onto the phone line.

Approximately 4in x 2in x 1.5in in size, the low-profile adapter is encased in a sealed, non-vented, spill-proof case and features an IEC320 C14 inlet receptacle.
