Powerstax High Efficiency Power Supply Selected For Energy Saving Lighting

March 05, 2007 by Jeff Shepard

Powerstax plc, announced that it has been selected to supply a turnkey power solution to EcoLEDLighting. EcoLEDLighting has recently launched its new Part L Compliant, fully dimmable MR16 lamp replacements, which reduce heat output by 80% and use 75% less energy. To enable the company to develop prototypes into production designs, EcoLEDLighting went looking for a power supply company that was able to fulfil the specific requirements that were essential for this new LED lighting technology.

Robin Day, Managing Director of EcoLEDLighting, stated, "I am delighted that we found Powerstax and that we now have a very successful working partnership with them. They understood our specific requirements of power conversion, packaging and cost requirements and quickly reacted by manufacturing power supplies for our prototype parts, exactly to our specifications, which is essential during the design phase. This helped maintain, and even improve, our production schedules. Our future plans now include Powerstax as our power supply technology partners with full production beginning in April of this year as we have jointly broken records to bring this very valuable product to the market place by applying our individual areas of expertise rather than re inventing the wheel."

Powerstax provided one of their trademark added value systems comprised of a high efficiency, ultra-compact 10W ac to dc, universal input voltage, encapsulated power supply mounted on a PCB with a variable LED driver circuit to adjust the output in order to vary the intensity of the LED light. When in full production the whole unit will be a lead-in, lead-out "lump in a cord" design with a remote control interface.

Tim Worley, CEO of Powerstax plc, commented "This is a very typical project for our UK based design team which utilises the strength of our high efficiency, flexible core products and our ability to integrate them into bespoke solutions which meet our customers technical requirements and time scales."
