Fast turnaround configurable power supply service launched

Arrow Electronics and Artesyn Embedded Technologies have announced a configurable AC/DC power supply service that offers flexible, fast turnaround solutions for low to medium volume requirements.

Arrow has invested in its production facility in Swindon, UK, to replicate Artesyn’s own configuration line and testing processes.

Arrow can now offer configured power supplies from Artesyn’s MP, iMP and low profile 1U MicroMP ranges. Over two million options are available and small batches of up to ten units can be produced in as little as 48 hours. Power supply requirements often change during a product design process and the Artesyn configurable solution delivers flexibility while reducing the costs and risk associated with full custom solutions.

In addition to the new configuration line, Arrow has installed equipment for surge and EMI testing as well as an environmental chamber that operates from -70 to 100°C. These all use Artesyn’s test procedures and parameters.
