Advanced Energy has you Covered!

While Advanced Energy offers a broad range of standard products that address the needs of many industries, there are occasions when a standard product does not address all your application requirements. A custom solution may not be economical or meet scheduling needs. By using proven standard platforms as building blocks, we can develop cost-effective turnkey power solutions that meet your exact needs.

Why Use A Modified Standard Power Supply?

Time-to-market, reliability and costs have the greatest impact on your ROI. Fully custom solutions can delay your time-to-market and undermine your competitive advantage. Avoid paying custom development costs with an Advanced Energy modified standard power supply.

Value-added Engineering

Leveraging the diverse product portfolio from Artesyn, Excelsys, and UltraVolt, dedicated Design Engineers from Advanced Enery provide value-added engineering by using standard products as base power supplies coupled with custom mechanical assemblies. This is more engineering intensive than modified standard but a lot less than full custom since based models are matured power supplies in mass production so some qualitification stages during development may be skipped.

Understanding Your Needs

We are acknowledged power supply experts, with the immense resources of Advanced Energy to call upon at any stage. The implications of this are considerable. We have a truly global presence, enabling you to communicate your needs quickly and easily with a local representative. Our technical capabilities are second-to-none, which means that all our modified standard products provide best-in-class performance. And we have the financial strength and credibility of a leading world-class company, ensuring that you can be confident of our support throughout the life cycle of your project and beyond.

We recognize that every customer's application is unique, but it may be the case that the requested product modifications have a technical precedent. Which is why we take care to gain a full understanding of your needs. Our extensive applications expertise, built up over many years, often enables us to recommend standard product modifications that you may not have considered, further helping to reduce your procurement costs and product development time.

Safety, Quality & Reliability

All standard power supplies from Advanced Energy are fully qualified to international safety standards and appropriate EMC/RFI regulations. Most modified standard products continue to comply with these requirements after modification, but where necessary we can expedite safety approval from the appropriate agencies, to further minimize impact on your own product development schedules. All our main manufacturing plants including our modified standards facilities are certified to the international ISO9000, ISO14000 and ISO13485 quality standards, with the entire organization committed to a total quality philosophy. Continual review of quality, from design through to manufacturing and test, ensures that product reliability is built-in from the outset.
