Climate Chambers Benefit From Compact Power Supplies

Climate chambers are traditionally used for testing products under extremes of temperature or humidity. New applications are now being found, where materials or finished products are climate-conditioned prior to assembly or use. These chambers can now be seen in high volume production lines, even for automotive part manufacturing.

As space is typically at a premium on a production shop-floor, overall equipment size is important. Smaller power supplies allow for more space to process materials and parts. TDK-Lambda’s RFE1600 power supplies are now in use in climate chambers, chosen for their very compact size. Measuring just 40.6mm high and 85mm wide, they offer very high power density for a 1600W output power supply.
