    I am looking for a source for wall adapters that bring out the earth ground
    connection in the output cable. I require new adapters (not surplus)
    with agency approvals. The vast majority of wall adapters do not
    bring out the earth ground connection.

    For an output voltage I can use either 5-12V AC, 5-15VDC,
    or a dual DC supply 5-15V. A current from 200mA to 500mA
    is fine. For a DC supply connecting the earth ground to the common
    is fine.

    Thanks.

    Are you needing quantity, or would surplus (one of a kind) work?

    Hi John,

    Don't know about the States, but over here many commercial AV suppliers source these as AV equipment often has a separate earthing terminal on the back.

    (Perhaps this is even your intended application)

    New + quantity + agency approvals.

    I'll look round, but our wall adapters have different mains pins so I can see them being of any use?

    Thanks. If you find the name of a manufacturer I can contact them to see if they
    make a US version.
