Legacy equipment users get obsolete power supplies help
Users of legacy equipment and those involved with repair or refurbishment of critical or capital systems can now buy form-fit-and-function replacement power supplies incorporating the latest technology and providing major increases in reliability and efficiency from Powerstax.
A recent example involved the recommissioning of an ion implant system used in semiconductor device fabrication.
Replacing the over 20-year-old power supplies without the need to modify the system chassis or control systems required a custom designed power supply.
The replacement product supplied made use of a modern high efficiency AC-DC “brick” module with an additional current limit circuit and an external output voltage adjustment circuit via a 10-turn potentiometer fitted to the front plate to allow it to function exactly as the original power supply.
The new power supply has a 90-253 VAC universal input allowing the original input voltage select link to be removed and provides an output of 48VDC @ 7.5A.
Chief Executive Officer of Powerstax, Tim Worley comments “We have many years’ experience of manufacturing custom and added value power conversion products. Offering this expertise to users of legacy systems by providing form-fit-and-function replacement power supplies ensures critical and capital equipment can continue in service for many more years improving ROI and avoiding unnecessary replacement costs.”
