You must have seen the SMPS power adapters being fitted on external powering cables of certain household gadgets such as laptops and mobile chargers.
While you know that these are essentially charging equipment there are also some other uses of the SMPS power adapter.
Apart from some of the household gadgets and electrical equipment, you will find common uses in a variety of other scenarios too.
Here are some of the common cases of use for an SMPS power supply.
Used in a variety of machine tools
There are many machinery tools used in industries that need DC from an AC power source. Here an SMPS adapter cable is used for powering up the device.
Used in security systems
The various security systems such as fire control systems, smoke detectors, and security cameras such as infrared cameras or CCTV cameras will run on DC. These will be fitted with an fcw dc adapter to make the voltage and output current compatible with the device.
Used in a vehicle as car battery chargers
Car batteries need recharging from time to time. And these do need a DC power source for charging up. If you plug your car battery into an AC power source it would result in a short circuit or damage to the car battery.
Also sometimes used on lighting devices
An SMPS power supply manufacturer also manufactures the SMPS adapters for use on lighting devices that need DC rather than an AC.
