12/24VDC USB CHARGERS WITH IP65 PROTECTION
USB POWER WITH ADDED LIQUID & DUST INGRESS AND VIBRATION PROTECTION TO IP65
The PV65R range of USB chargers offers all the performance benefits of the PVPro range with additional protection provided to the electronic circuit of the unit. A durable polyurethane compound encompasses the electronic components offering comprehensive protection against dust and liquid ingress to IP65.
This product offers a good solution where tampering might be an issue or in dirty or more challenging environments. Although the nature of the USB connector itself can always be wilfully broken or damaged and will still corrode if repeatedly exposed to liquid ingress, all electronics in these units are protected to IP65.
The range mirrors the very successful PVPro
products, offering both single and double outputs
and rear fit as well as front fitting options which
allow the unit to be replaced quickly and easily
should this be required. Automatic short circuit
protection is also included, so in the event of
tampering or compromise, the unit will
automatically shut down, then restart once the
fault has been removed. All units can be installed
on both 12Vdc or 24Vdc vehicles without
Units can be installed directly into bulkheads,
vehicle walls, into seat fittings and underneath
seats using the mounting pod P/N USB-POD. They
can also be fitted onto table tops using the
horizontal surface mounting pod P/N USB-TPOD.
APPROVALS AND MANUFACTURE
The range has been designed to meet the rigorous standards required for on board
commercial vehicle applications including EN50498, ISO7637-2, EN61373 and EN50155 and is both CE and E marked (Reg10). The casings are made from V0 rated (self-extinguishing) high impact polycarbonate and the electronic assembly is predominantly by computer-controlled SMT for maximum
A requirement of the USB standard is that the metal cage around the USB plugs and sockets is connected to ground (zero volts). If a USB charger is to be used in an application with a positive ground, i.e. battery/supply positive terminal is connected to the vehicle chassis, then there is a risk that the exposed metal cage of any USB cable could come in contact with the positive connected chassis, causing uncontrolled heating of the USB cable and USB charger and potentially creating a hazard.
In positive ground applications, we recommend installing an Alfatronix isolated converter between the positive ground supply and the input of the USB charger.
The PV65R range of chargers are manufactured using rugged components to provide years of service in demanding commercial environments
and are covered by a three-year return to base guarantee.
