Modern power supplies

for ATE systems and the semiconductor, oil and gas industries

Reliable, precise, and efficient power supplies are the core of any manufacturing or process system. The sensors, solenoids, drivers, and indicator lights of a process control system all require reliable, precise, and efficient power supplies to enable the system do its job. Reliability is important because downtime due to power-supply failure is costly.

Precision is important because it enables the system to accurately reproduce results and collect data needed to produce a quality product. Efficiency is important to keep costs down and keep product moving. EA products operate up to 96% efficient, which leads to energy and environmental cost savings.

Reliable, Precise, and Efficient Power Supplies for ATE Systems

To meet production goals, electronics manufacturers need reliable, precise, and efficient supplies to power production automated test equipment (ATE). Elektro-Automatik’s reliability leads to less downtime which can impact production schedules that ultimately your company’s bottom line. Precision and repeatability are important to ensure continuous product quality. Many products need to be tested not only at nominal input voltages, but at the minimum and maximum input voltages as well. EA’s built in arbitrary waveform and function generator enable you to create voltage dips, steps, ramps and even ripple to mimic the real-world conditions product will endure.

The true auto-ranging and efficiency of all EA products often result in a power solution that requires less power, less rack space and lower environmental costs. Elekitro-Automatik’s PSI, EL, ELR and PSB product series offer high power density at voltages up to 2000V and can be paralleled for up to 2MW of output power. In addition, EA offers a variety of digital interfaces, including CAN, CANopen, Profibus/Profinet IO, ModBus TCP, and Ethernet, that allows users to easily integrate a power supply into an ATE system.

EA Advantages:
  • Output voltage up to 2000V
  • Power output up to 30 kW
  • Paralleling up to 2MW
  • True Auto-ranging
  • High power Density
  • Digital control
  • Low EMC
  • Industry experience
  • Anybus

Powering the semiconductor industry

As the size of transistors and integrated circuits decrease in size the requirements for reliable, precise, and efficient power supplies continues to increase. Semiconductor processes are very tightly controlled, therefore EA products are designed with repeatability and reliability at the forefront. High reliability helps production environments meet tight schedules, precision helps them produce high-quality parts, and efficiency enables them to do it in a cost-effective manner.

EA can support many semiconductor test and power needs, from wafer test to burn-in and heater applications. Excellent regulation and low-noise output mean users can focus on their test process and not worry about the power supplies.

EA Advantages:
  • Output voltage up to 2000V
  • Power output up to 30 kW
  • Paralleling up to 2MW
  • True Auto-ranging
  • High precision
  • High power Density
  • Digital control
  • Low EMC
  • Industry experience

Oil and Gas Industry Relies on EA Power Supplies

Equipment used by the oil and gas industry must operate reliably in harsh environments. The equipment used to locate, extract, and transport hydrocarbon natural resources must operate at high temperatures and pressures. This includes electro-mechanical components and systems, instrumentation, industrial equipment, and the power supplies that drive them. The EA Series PSI 9000 3U provides 3.3kW up to 15kW of reliable power for these applications.

They feature a highly isolated design, which makes them much less sensitive to disturbances, such as electromagnetic interference, and improves reliability in industrial environments. They meet EN 55022 class B requirements, meaning that they meet EMI requirements for commercial- and light-industrial operation. And, on top of that, EA offers a variety of digital interfaces, including CAN, CANopen, Profibus/Profinet IO, ModBus TCP, and Ethernet, that allows users to control the power supplies remotely.

EA Advantages:
  • Output voltage up to 2000V
  • Power output up to 30 kW
  • High power Density
  • Digital control
  • Low EMC
  • Industry experience
