Powerstax, one of Europe’s leading value-added and industrial power solutions manufacturers, has been appointed as the sole UK distributor for the Technix range of high voltage DC power supplies and capacitor chargers. Technix products are in use worldwide by major OEMs and leading research laboratories.
Established in 2000, Technix designs and manufactures a wide range of high voltage DC power supplies, capacitor chargers and electron beam power systems covering voltages from 1kV to 350kV and with power ratings from 300W to beyond 500kW. The latest designs include a 4½ digit display and a voltage limitation function while parallel operation allows maximum output power to be increased if required.
Employing high efficiency zero current switching (ZCS) resonance technology, the modular design and wide range of options allows Technix to provide flexible and customized power solutions while maintaining high-reliability and fast delivery times. Outputs are available as positive, negative, reversible or floating and digital interfaces including RS232, Ethernet, Profibus or Optical Fibre may be specified. Customized analogue interfaces including 24V relay, isolated interface or user custom interface may be requested.
“We are very pleased to have been appointed as UK distributor for Technix.” Comments Phil James, Powerstax Sales Director. “The high voltage options now at our disposal, complement our own transformer rectifier products and considerably widen our product options and market opportunities.”
