Powerstax’s modern engineering department uses advanced 3D CAD and computer based circuit design and development systems that accelerates pre-production and prototype development time. Powerstax can also offer an in-House engineering team experienced in supplying custom power solutions that seemlessly integrate the design of the power solution with technology of the application.
The end user was a manufacturer of 100% recyclable, durable, state of the art lighting solutions for environmentally-aware Architectural, Retail, Security, Safety and Eco-tourism sites where energy cost, ambient heat reduction and ultimate durability are key requirements.
The lighting manufacturer launched its new, fully dimmable MR16 lamp replacements, which reduce heat output by 80% and use 75% less energy. Designed for hospitals, the system required high efficiency to meet the UK Part L regulations on conservation of fuel and power in buildings. To enable the company to develop prototypes into production designs, the customer went looking for a power supply company that was able to fulfil the specific requirements that were essential for this new LED lighting technology.
The Turnkey Provider
Initially, the manufacturer was seeking a compact AC to 12VDC power module for a special new LED lighting system. The ability of Powerstax to provide rapid, cost-effective value-added power solutions secured the complete power supply for a major new product with a leading edge LED lighting manufacturer.
The Powerstax Solution
Powerstax provided one of their trademark value added systems comprised of a high efficiency, ultra-compact 10W AC to DC, universal input voltage, encapsulated power supply mounted on a PCB with a variable LED driver circuit to adjust the output in order to vary the intensity of the LED light. Once in production the unit became a lead-in, lead-out “lump in a cord” design with a remote control interface.
Powerstax, by acting as an extension of the customers R&D team, helped reduce the time-to-market and using their Far East manufacturing facility also provided cost savings for volume production of the lighting system. This allowed the customer to focus on his core competence and leave power to the Powerstax experts.
What the Customer Says
The Managing Director of the lighting company said: “I am delighted that we found Powerstax and that we now have a very successful working partnership with them. They understood our specific requirements of power conversion, packaging and cost requirements and quickly reacted by manufacturing power supplies for our prototype parts, exactly to our specifications, which is essential during the design phase. This helped maintain, and even improve, our production schedules. Our future plans now include Powerstax as our power supply technology partners with full production beginning in July of this year as we have jointly broken records to bring this very valuable product to the market place by applying our individual areas of expertise rather than re-inventing the wheel. Powerstax offered an ideal technical partnership, as they already have design and R&D divisions, together with an excellent understanding of power supplies.”
