How to Select the Right Adapter
The most common applications on the market for adapter are desktop adapter, wall adapter, and car adapter. When considering an adapter, you need to know what type of input plug socket and output connector your devices need. Next, pay attention to current type: AC to DC or DC to DC, output voltage, and safety regulations. Operating temperature, cable length (mm), and efficiency are other elements that you might need to consider as well.
Step 1, Input Plug Socket and Output Connector Type
Picking a correct input plug socket and output connector type for your devices is important and makes devices work properly. Shown below are three types of AC inlet and seven main types of output connector in the PAPS powers supply product line.
Step2, Current Type and Output Voltage
Current type and voltage will be expressed as a number and current designation. In the example here, the current type shown is AC to DC, input voltage is 100-240V, and output power is 19V.
Step 3, Safety Regulation
Regulated AC/DC power adapters keep voltage and current potential constant. Certain safety regulations are only good for certain countries. Failure to use them can damage some devices.
All of these elements that you might also want to consider can be found on the website.
