Solid State Supplies announces partnership with VPT

Distributor Solid State Supplies has signed an agreement with VPT to deliver power solutions for mission critical applications. It has been appointed as the sole and exclusive representative / distributor in the UK and Eire for high reliability power modules and other products from VPT.

Under the agreement, Solid State Supplies will provide pre- and post-sales support for the VPT product line from VPT, which includes 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.

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

VPT designs and manufactures modules and products for high reliability applications. Each device is designed specifically and VPT never ‘upscreens’ lower-grade devices for use in hi-rel applications.

Solid State Supplies provides in-depth technical support to engineers in the UK and 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 . . .  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 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.”

The VPT product line is immediately available from Solid State Supplies.
