12V Power Supply

12V Power Supply

Many types of electronic equipment utilize a 12 volt power supply. They are frequently used in process controls, test equipment, communications, low voltage lighting and alarms.

Power supplies with a 12 volt input or output are often used in applications related to vehicles. A power supply with a 12 volt DC input (more specifically identified as a DC-DC converter) may be used within the vehicle, operating on its 12 volt battery. A 12 volt output power supply may be used to power equipment intended for vehicular use when it is not installed in a vehicle; for example, radio communications equipment.
