TPD-520 Trigger USB-C PD Output Voltage Controller

Quick Overview

Turn any USB-C PD charger into a 9 to 20 VDC output power supply for small audio boards and other electronic devices with Dayton Audio's TDP-520 trigger board. The board delivers up to 100W of power depending on your PD charger's capability.

Product Highlights

  • Delivers up to 20 VDC from a smartphone USB-C PD charger to devices that don't have smart charge capability
  • Switches between 5, 9, 12, 15 and 20 VDC output to match your devices specification
  • Input supports PD3.0/2.0, BC1.2 and other fast charging protocols
  • Standard USB-C port connection for long lasting compatibility
  • Heat dissipation through PCB copper eliminates the need for a fan or heatsink
  • Manual voltage output setting stays at the desired level even though power is removed

Turn Your Smartphone PD Charger into a 5 to 20 VDC Power Supply

This board is a highly cost-effective voltage trigger that controls your PD charger's output to match 5 different voltages (5V, 9V, 12V, 15V, 20V). The trigger has built-in USB PD protocol, supporting PD3.0/2.0, BC1.2 and other fast charging methods. It has a PD communication module which enables it to increase voltage to power various types electrical equipment, such as wireless charger, electric toothbrushes, small amplifier and preamplifier boards, rechargeable shaver, electric tools with lithium batteries and so on. It doesn't support QC technology which usually has a USB-A port.

To select the correct voltage output, hold the button down on the board for 3 seconds and an LED will start flashing. If one LED flashes it's set for 5 VDC. To change the voltage output, push the button while the LED is flashing until the desired voltage LED is flashing. Wait 3 seconds and the voltage is set and the LEDs will stop flashing and you'll get a solid LED next to the desired voltage. If all the LEDs are flashing, it'll be set for 20 VDC when the flashing stops.

Specifications: • Max voltage input and output 20 VDC • Max current output: 5A • Selectable output voltages when using PD AC USB-C adapter: 5, 9, 12, 15, 20 VDC • Dimensions: 2" W x 0.75" D x 0.51" H (51 x 19 x 13 mm) • Input port: USB-C • Output connectors: Phoenix style two screw terminals and 2-terminal Molex style micro-fit.
