This medium-duty mains AC to 12V DC adapter is ideal for powering smaller-sized linear actuators and DC motors where the total load is expected to be below 6A.
The adapter is built in the style of many laptop power supplies, with a rectangular body and IEC C13 type socket. A 1.2m mains AC lead is included with options for either a UK 3-pin (as pictured) or EU 2-pin fused plug, selectable below. The output cable from the adapter is 0.8m 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.
Currents larger than the 6A continuous rating may be handled for brief periods (for larger peak actuator loads for instance). If operating devices which may be damaged by excessive current delivery, or if routing power through cables which are vulnerable to damage then it would be wise to add a fuse to the output of the adapter to ensure the power is cut when appropriate.
For devices with a high current draw such as our GLA4000-S actuator model then a larger power supply would be more appropriate.
