Mouser Electronics signs Advanced Energy Industries for global distribution
Mouser Electronics has signed a global distribution partnership with precision power conversion specialist, Advanced Energy Industries (AE). Through the agreement, Mouser will stock AE’s power portfolio, including high-voltage and thermal products.
“This partnership with Advanced Energy bolsters our commitment to providing the latest products and technologies to our customers worldwide,” said Jeff Newell, Mouser Electronics’ senior vice president of products. “We look forward to providing engineers and buyers worldwide with AE’s innovative power solutions, backed by Mouser’s unsurpassed customer service and best-in-class logistics,” he added.
Greg Provenzano, senior vice president of sales and corporate marketing at Advanced Energy, commented: “Mouser’s specialisation in rapid introduction of new products to engineers and support for the design community in all stages of their design makes them a great partner for Advanced Energy as we expand our footprint in industrial applications worldwide.”
Both the A series and AA series consist of miniature, PCB-mount, high-voltage, regulated DC/DC converters. Designed and built using power-conversion topology, the converters feature surface-mount technology and encapsulation techniques that provide high reliability and performance, claims Mouser. Both series of converters feature a wide input voltage range, an output current monitor, and indefinite output short-circuit protection for applications such as electrophoresis, bias supplies, electrostatic detectors, mass spectrometry, and photomultiplier tubes (PMTs). AA series converters are 22 per cent smaller than their standard A series counterparts, while adding an output voltage monitor and producing the same high reliability and performance.
With highly flexible interfacing for the load and power-supply side, the plug-and-play Thyro-A digital thyristor controllers precisely and reliably control power in three operating modes: full-wave cycle, phase-control, and half wave frequency package control (for single-phase devices). For standard processes, engineers can adjust the module itself, which eases handling and speeds commissioning. The modules also offer integration with automation systems to enable expanded functionality.
The High Power C series of high-voltage regulated DC/DC converters directly addresses the high power-density needs, delivering up to 60, 125 or 250W. This high power density is especially suited to high-energy systems with large capacitances, fast repetition rates, or high continuous-DC-power requirements. Typical applications for the High Power C series include laser, capacitor charging, pulsed power, pulse generator, and test equipment.
