Larson Electronics has released a 5-amp waterproof power supply that converts commonly used 120-240 volts AC electrical current to 12 or 24 volts DC.
The DCP-5-HD heavy duty power converter from Larson Electronics includes an optional industrial grade male plug and 3-ft of cable on the input end and an optional female receptacle on the other end. The company says the unit provides a safe and effective way for users to tap into and utilize common 100 to 277 volts AC power sources and converts the current to 12 or 24 volts DC, allowing users to use standard AC power to operate equipment like low-voltage LED lights that require low-voltage current.
This power transformer features an IP67 rated waterproof design, making it suitable for indoor or outdoor use and is wet area approved. It includes integral short circuit, over voltage, over temperature, and overload protection that will shut the unit down or reduce output in case of faults and overloads to protect the unit and connected equipment from damage. This transformer is enclosed in a weather proof enclosure that is equipped with a handy strap for carrying and/or mounting. The compact size and wide input voltage range of this unit makes it ideal for indoor and outdoor operation of Larson’s LED light bars, hand lamps, and other equipment that requires 12/24 volts DC current.
