Mains to 12V DC 6000mA Power Supply/Adapter

DISCONTINUED:  We have replaced this power supply with an improved 12V 8A version, offering greater efficiency and dynamic overload protection.

This medium-duty mains AC to 12V DC adapter is ideal for powering smaller-sized linear actuators and DC motors where the total continuous load is expected to be below 6A. The power supply is capable of supplying larger currents for short periods (up to 10A peak for <1s) and includes a standard automotive blade fuse holder on the output, fitted with a 7.5A fuse.

The adapter is built in the style of many laptop power supplies, with a rectangular body and IEC C13 type socket. A 1m long mains AC lead is included with options for either a UK 3-pin (as pictured) or EU 2-pin fused plug, selectable below (a 5A mains input fuse is appropriate for this size of power supply). The output cable from the adapter is 0.9m in length with a male DC barrel connector at the end (2.1 x 5.5mm). 

The power supply can accept an input of between 100V~240V AC, 50/60 HZ. 


Unlike many similarly sized power supplies designed for powering LED lighting, laptops and other steady-load devices, this power supply is capable of powering small to medium sized electric motors (inductive loads) which often have a high start-up current. 

There is a slow-blow fuse in line with the output lead to protect against overloads. In some cases it may be appropriate to replace the fuse on the output with one of a lower rating to protect connected devices, however you should never replace the fuse with one of a higher rating than the supplied 7.5A.

To give examples of the supply's capability, it may power up to two GLA750, GLA200 or GLA600-S actuators simultaneously, or one GLA1500-N actuator. For larger actuators than this such as the GLA4000-S model you should look at our larger 12V 10A power supply

The device is suitable for indoor use only. Every power supply is tested under load before sending and includes an information sheet inside each box.
