Powerstax Display Latest High Efficiency Power Solutions and Recently Acquired Drake Power Ranges at Electronica 2012
The recent Drake Power acquisition allows Powerstax to offer customers automatic transformer rectifier systems up to 500kVA and beyond. These are typically thyristor controlled with modular switch-mode technology available for smaller systems.
The markets served by Drake include Marine, Offshore, Cathodic Protection, Water Treatment (Electrochlorination), Electrochemical and Plating, Medical, Aerospace, Military equipment including Frequency Converters and Aircraft Ground Support and many others. These generally bespoke power solutions are suitable for harsh (marine, offshore, desert) and hazardous (Zone 1 and Zone 2) environments. The systems can be oil, air or water cooled and can be sealed up to IP65 if the environment dictates.
Continuing development of their own patented high efficiency full-brick power solutions, Powerstax will have on their booth a number of configurable rack mounted power supplies, vehicle mountable power solutions for harsh environments and the latest in 1U, baseplate cooled technology offering up to 500W output.
Further development of Powerstax’s high-efficiency power converters will see new developments for fuel cell power conversion for electric vehicles.
