Solid State Supplies has announced that it has been appointed as the sole and exclusive representative/distributor in the UK & Eire for high reliability power modules and other products from VPT.

Under the new agreement, Solid State Supplies will provide pre- and post-sales support for the entire product line from VPT, including a broad range of DC/DC converters, EMI filters, inrush current limiters and thermal pads that are specifically designed for high reliability applications including military and commercial avionics, weapons and defence systems and ground based vehicles.

Additionally, Solid State will also be offering the MIL-PRF-38534 space qualified DC/DC converters and EMI filters for the most demanding applications.

VPT has 20 years of experience in the design and manufacture of modules and products for high reliability applications. Each and every device is designed specifically for its intended use and VPT never ‘upscreens’ lower-grade devices for use in hi-rel applications. Solid State has 40 years of providing in-depth technical support to engineers in the UK & Eire, with a particular focus on hi-rel applications.

Commenting on the agreement, John MacMichael, Managing Director of Solid State Supplies said: “We are delighted to have been able to sign such a prestigious franchise as VPT. This returns us to the genesis of our company in power supplies and power components and adds to our military/aerospace product portfolio providing greater choice to our key customers. We intend to expand our technical customer-facing team as a result of this agreement to ensure that we are able to offer the same high levels of support that our customers are used to on our other lines for these important new power products.”

Monty Pyle, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for VPT said: “We are pleased to begin a partnership with Solid State Supplies as our exclusive distributor for VPT products in the UK, as this partnership enables us to best support our diverse customer base on their critical programs with unparalleled technical and sales expertise, with Solid State Supplies’ experience and commitment to high-reliability product representation, we are confident of a seamless transition for existing customers and continued superior service for new customers.”
