MTM Power, the specialist for individual power supplies, has developed a series of primary switchers with low power consumption in un-switched position. This so-called stand-by power consumption becomes an increasingly important criterion in the light of the worldwide depletion of energy resources that is paralleled by a rise in energy costs. The reduced stand-by power consumption of a “print power” module is way below 1W, typically around 300mW. The AC/DC power modules series PMAS10 is designed as universal compact power supplies with AC and DC wide input ranges and single output power of 5V, 12V, 15V and 24V for worldwide application.

The smallest dimensions of 52mm x 36.5mm x 24mm and the high packing density allow an efficient, cost-saving 10W solution for different tasks where low power is needed. The power supplies are prepared for applications in class one and/or two and have a high efficiency of 80%. The vacuum encapsulated modules are characterised by a compact design due to their mechanical and electrical rugged construction and are designed for PCB mounting. The basics for the high-quality standard of the whole series are SMD technology, automatic 100% final test and 100%-burn-in-test. The AC/DC modules comply with the low voltage directive as well as the up-to-date standards as regards CE conformity and are CB-Scheme, VDE and UL/cUL approved. Besides this 10W version, the series includes modules with an output power of 5W to 100W for PCB mounting (PMAS) and chassis mounting (PCMAS).
