EXTENDING THE LIFE OF GROUND RADAR INSTALLATIONS
Powerstax was contacted by a 3rd party contractor to the MoD who had been tasked with refurbishing some ground radar installations to extend the life for a further 10 years. They had ‘Googled’ Kingshill as those were the original power supplies installed and had initially drawn a blank since that company had ceased trading. Happily that search led to Powerstax with the statement “Powerstax offers replacements and alternatives for Kingshill Linear, Regulated & Un-regulated Power Supplies and other discontinued ranges”.
After a site visit and meeting, Powerstax were able to use the original drawing package and many of the original parts’ suppliers to exactly replicate the models supplied over 20 years ago.
While at this customer another application was introduced which required a form fit function replacement but with a more modern technology power supply to increase the system efficiency significantly from the original 50Hz design. Powerstax used one of their Multistax units in the original chassis to achieve this. There was a lot of space left in there!
