Mains AC to 24V DC 5A Power Supply/Adapter

This 24V DC power adapter is capable of supplying loads of up to 5A continuous (and larger currents momentarily). We have selected these power supplies to be suitable for powering electric actuators and other DC motors (inductive loads), which many similarly rated adapters are not capable of operating.

Each adapter has a rectangular body, with a 1.1m output lead running from the adapter block to a male DC barrel connector (2.1 x 5.5mm). An IEC C13 mains socket in the side of the adapter matches up with the included mains cable, which is available with either a UK 3-pin (as pictured) or EU 2-pin fused plug, selectable below. A small green LED on the side of the body indicates when the mains AC input is switched on and a DC output is being generated.

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

Group SKU: 24V-5A

Currents larger than the 5A continuous rating may be handled for brief periods (for larger peak actuator loads for instance). If there is a danger of your output load shorting then you should introduce a fuse between the power supply and load as a secondary layer of protection.

See the technical details tab for a list of specifications.
