Rugged Power Supplies

26th January 2016

Power supplies have been an important part of the Relec product range since the company was formed in 1978. In 2003 Power-One became a major part of our portfolio bringing with it the Melcher brand, at the same time two former Melcher employees* joined our team, bringing significant design, technical and application experience with them. In 2014 Power-One including Melcher became part of the Bel Power Solutions group.

Melcher started in 1972 in Switzerland, a country synonymous with premium quality precision engineering. Their designs produce high power densities with high efficiency, achieved without compromising long term reliability in extreme climatic conditions.

Robust design provides for a long service life even under severe conditions. Using selected top grade, high quality wide temperature range components is one element. Also careful consideration to the mechanical construction forms a fundamental part of the design process.

Designed from the onset to exceed the requirements for low conduction and radiated electro-magnetic emissions whilst offering excellent immunity to severe transients, surges and conducted/radiated emissions.

These rugged power supplies are suitable for transportation quasi-military, marine, industrial, remote communications, reliability critical applications such as monitoring and control systems.

On the Relec website all of our rugged power supplies can be quickly accessed by selecting Railway under the ‘Select by Industry’ tab. Many interesting application examples for rugged power supplies can be found in our Case Studies section.

Our close collaboration with Bel Power over this long period puts us in an exceptional position to help with applications requiring rugged power supplies.
