The OE Electrics TUF5A (Twin USB Fast) charger with its 5A max output and unmatched 90% efficiency is now available in a unique on-site upgradeable/replaceable format. Developed for high use areas such as Hotels, airport lounges, trains and schools/colleges, TUF-R5A charging sockets can be replaced on-site without even the need to disconnect the AC supply.
Although our standard TUF5A features enhanced durability 5,000+ insertion USB connectors, inadvertent damage or vandalism of a USB connector is a risk that cannot be ignored by facility managers. TUF-R5A offers a cost-effective solution for the management of this risk by enabling quick on-site replacement of a damaged TUF socket rather than the removal of the complete power module for repair.
Another invaluable feature of the TUF-R5A is that being replaceable, it will allow future upgradeability of your USB charging provision to the next generation type C USB PD charging solutions as these are developed by OE Electrics. Specifying TUF-R5A will help ensure end-user satisfaction and protect your investment in device charging provision.
The procedure for replacing a TUF-R5A charging socket in situ has been designed to be quick and simple with no need for a qualified electrician. Simply remove the TUF-R5A fascia and extract the TUF module with the supplied tool, insert a new module until the integral clips engage and finally refit the fascia. The process taking no more a few minutes and without the need to disconnect the AC supply.
TUF-R5A has achieved its class leading 5A output by boosting internal efficiency up to an exceptional 90% via innovative low loss circuitry. As a result, TUF-R5A is able to charge faster with less power wastage due to heat generation than competitor products and comply with the latest level VI international standards on the efficiency of mobile device power supplies.
TUF-R5A utilises advanced device recognition circuitry to automatically communicate with the portable devices connected so that they can then draw the optimum changing power. Safety has been a design priority and TUF-R5A circuitry includes protection against both input and output current overload and short circuits and, has been independently tested to the latest international Safety and EMC standards.
