Food and Beverages depend upon maintaining critical temperatures
Not cold enough or not hot enough may affect your health.
Food and beverages not refrigerated at the correct temperature may spoil.
Food not cooked / prepared at the correct temperature may contain bacteria from E. Coli to Salmonella.

Hazardous Location Certifications
Explosive environments such as flour processing, grain storage, breweries and distilleries may require hazardous location certification. Power supplies provide regulated voltages to drive motors, relays, and power electronic controls. As power supplies produce heat and contain high voltages and/or high currents, they need to be thoroughly tested to ensure sparks and high temperatures will not compromise system safety.
We have many supplies with a variety of hazardous location certifications. Power supplies with hazardous location certification make system designs easier to certify and ensure safety to the end user.

AC Power Dropout
High speed bottling and packaging among other processes can be severely affected by sags of the AC input line voltage. Having a power supply that is SEMi F47 compliant, that can ride through these sags, can alleviate poor system performance during this type of event.
The vast majority of our products are designed to perform continuously during these AC line dips and disruptions.
Peak current demands from the power supply exist during start-up and during processes. These peaks can usually be attributed to solenoid relays, pumps and motor controllers. Costly mistakes in power supply selection can be made by not taking into account the peak current demands. Repetitive peak loading on a power supply that is not designed for the task can lead to early failures.
Selecting a power supply capable of continuous power at the peak load may may result in a greater cost and larger product size. We offer products that support peak current demands and are capable of doing so reliably.
High-end equipment for Food and Beverage markets require long product lifecycles and high reliability.
Our products offer very long life cycles (Up to 20+ years) achieved by using high quality E-Caps and conservative electrical and thermal derating backed by the long warranties (some up to limited life time).
A development process requiring products to meet or exceed stringent internal design guidelines. Products are subjected to a series of rigorous reviews with brutally honest and logical judgements at each stage.
Large, global, fully-qualified component database giving economy of scale and long product life cycles
Worldwide unified design standards
Best in class operating life times, field failures are reduced by designing E-caps for 15+ year life, applying proper electrical and thermal derating, and use of high quality components
Higher efficiency and advanced thermal management result in lower operating temps, longer life and lower total cost of ownership
Detailed EVT/DVT test plan incorporating lessons learned from decades of experience in field applications
Uncompromising Product Qualification consistent with IPC9592B guidelines - HALT, TCT, THB, HASS, shock and vibration, demonstrated life testing
Reliability models and component stress analysis; MTBF, Bel-core, Mil-Std-217 and DMTBF analysis in production
Quality can never be assured by final inspection. Quality is an integral part of everything we do. Our process includes a tightly controlled approved vendor list (AVL), incoming inspection, rigorous testing, field proven topologies and components, test data validation, and extraordinary process reliability. These factors combine to generate elite product quality levels.
