The PVPWp 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 circuitn 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 adjustment.

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.

It is recommended that these units are fused individually with a 1Amp fuse (24V systems) or a 2Amp fuse (12V Systems). Suitable in-line fuses are available; Part Numbers: PVP-FUSE 1, PVP-FUSE 2


The range has been designed to meet the rigorous standards required for on board commercial vehicle applications including EN50498, ISO7637-2, 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 durability.


The PVPWp 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.
