Meeting Specifications with Military Precision

The customer came to Acopian with very strict requirements and detailed specifications for a rack mounting power system to be manufactured in the U.S. It was absolutely necessary that all parts met or exceeded specifications called out by strictly enforced regulations. It was also required that the unit be failsafe and therefore needed output redundancy for each voltage. Other requirements included mil-spec output connectors, thumb-screw mounting for quick replacement of internal power supplies in the event of malfunction or failure in the field, independent control of DC outputs, and web interface for remote monitoring and control of all aspects of the power system. After receiving and testing the first power system shipped, the customer was more than happy to order several more units to be installed in the field.

Power Supplies for Industrial Control

Acopian Engineers Match the Features of Legacy Systems to Keep Alarm Systems Powered

A potential customer approached Acopian because they needed to replace a power system manufactured by a company that had gone out of business. The dc-dc power supplies were used to power alarm systems at multiple facilities and the customer needed an exact replacement with regards to output ratings, number of connections, physical form, and mounting provisions. They’d been sending the power supplies to a third party repair shop, but this approach had become impractical. They needed help. Unfortunately, their request seemed to be lacking information so our engineers requested photos of the existing power supplies in addition to the literature that originally accompanied them. This approach enabled Acopian to refine the specifications prior to production, saving them time, money, and stress.

System Specs

Power Supplies for Medical Devices

Developing X-ray Imagery

A leading manufacturer in the medical device field came to Acopian with very specific requirements for a rack mount power system. The customer was in need of power supplies that would be used in a dark room environment for development of X-Ray imagery. The equipment that generate and manage X-Ray data require reliable, consistent and clean power. This meant that in addition to standard power system requirements like multiple outputs and failure alarms, all LED indicators and digital meter lighting had to be capable of being switched off while the power system was still in use. And the power supplies had to provide consistently clean and reliable power within a tight tolerance of output current. Acopian met these requirements using linear power supply modules in the systems and providing toggle switches on the front panel for individual control of LED indicators and digital meter backlighting.

Facilitating Optoacoustic Imaging

A company specializing in optoacoustic imaging required a rack mount power system with many specific physical attributes. In addition to having multiple DC outputs, an IEC AC output, and the ability to pair with another Acopian rack mounting unit, all inputs, outputs, and controls had to be located discreetly on the rear panel, leaving the front panel completely blank. Airflow was required to cool the second Acopian rack mounting power supply as well as the custom system itself, but because of the customer’s existing setup, the cooling fan had to pull air in from the bottom of the unit. The engineers at Acopian came up with a solution that exceeded the customer’s expectations and continues to operate in their facility today.

System Specs

  • Rack Mount
  • 230VAC IEC Input with Lighted Switch

Power Supplies for Industrial Applications

Acopian Power Supplies Help Keep the Assembly Lines Moving

A potential customer in the automation technology industry was in need of redundant power supplies. After speaking with one of Acopian’s applications engineers regarding their requirements and available power sources, a foolproof solution was agreed upon. Inputs from two separate power sources, one being a battery backup, would ensure uninterrupted production on the automated assembly line. If the main source of power should happen to fail, a fully charged battery would be waiting in the wings so the production line would never even skip a beat while the main power source was being repaired. Acopian engineers designed and built the appropriate components to allow the seamless switchover from line power to battery power when needed.
