Acal BFi, – a division of Acal plc, has signed a European distribution agreement with SL Power, a leading manufacturer of internal and external power supplies for the industrial, medical, military and information technology equipment (ITE) sectors. This signing will give Acal BFi greater flexibility to provide design and manufacturing support to customers developing products for harsh and life-critical applications.
“With its reputation for high-quality medical power supplies, SL Power are now introducing competitively priced, high-specification power supplies into commercial and industrial applications which require high reliability and long life in market-leading form factors,” explains Philippe Gruson, President of the Electronics Division, at Acal BFi.
SL Power’s standard internal power supplies range from 11 to 1200W, whilst the standard external power supplies range from 10 to 220W. Over 30% of SL Power’s product is supplied with some modification and a further 30% of the products are custom designed. This, combined with low minimum order quantities for non-standard product, will support Acal BFi in providing customers with a value-added approach to the design-in of semi-custom and custom power-supply products.
Nigel Davies, European Sales Director at SL Power, comments, “Acal BFi was selected to become SL Power’s distributor in Europe due to its proven ability to provide local support, both technically and commercially, to power-supply users at all stages of the design-to-manufacturing process.”
The most recent survey by Frost & Sullivan named SL Power as #1 in the world for medical power supplies and the company’s power supplies are used by many of the world’s leading medical equipment manufacturers as well as by customers in the high-reliability, industrial information technology equipment (ITE) and military markets.
