Magna-Power in the News

From Line-voltage Simulation to Regenerative Braking Test
"Magna-Power Electronics announced the availability of a new military-standard-rated ruggedized option for its SL Series and XR Series programmable DC power supplies (Figure 7). Tested to MIL-STD-810G functional shock and vibration specifications, the new ruggedized option is available on 235 models spanning power levels 1.5 kW to 10 kW, voltage levels from 5 VDC to 10,000 VDC, and current levels from 0.2 ADC to 600 ADC."
Electronic loads—a new generation
"This article provides an overview of electronic loads currently available, namely switched resistance, MOSFET, regenerative, and the newly introduced hybrid, active resistance. Each load topology has advantages and disadvantages, ranging from cost and speed of operation to loading as a function of applied voltage."
Mobile Robots Deliver Material Handling Flexibility
"The task of moving materials to or between work cells and warehouses seems to be an ideal one for robots. Magna-Power Electronics, a New Jersey-based manufacturer of programmable power products, was able to free the equivalent of three full-time employees for other tasks by deploying two mobile robots to move parts and assemblies from the stockroom and through its manufacturing process."
Magna-Power Nabs the New Jersey Manufacturer of the Year Award
"Flemington, New Jersey-based Magna-Power Electronics, a manufacturer of robust programmable dc power supplies, is the recipient of the 2016 New Jersey Manufacturer of the Year Award. The company was presented with the award at the New Jersey Manufacturing Extension Program (NJMEP) “Made in New Jersey” Manufacturing Day Event in Somerset on 7 October."

Powering Teslas and More, N.J. Company Needs Workers
"Rather than designing a specific system for a client from the ground up, the company will show a client the different kinds of products it has, which can be tailored to individual needs. It makes a big difference in three major areas, he said: quality, cost, and lead time."
Getting the Best Performance from AC to DC Power Supplies in Abusive Environments
"Troublesome issues can range from the quality of the ac source, cooling constraints, control wiring, air quality, or user understanding of the power conversion product. This article describes some common pitfalls and provides insight how to get maximum performance for specific applications."
