Reliable power supplies for power generation control cabinets

Posted by Dulcie on April 5, 2017

Long term reliability is paramount when generating electricity. Power plants are expected to operate for decades with anticipated life-times in excess of 50 years. Although retrofits are carried out on a regular basis to ensure the latest technology is used, many of the control equipment cabinets are expected to last a minimum of ten years.

HWS Group

When considering which 1000W power supplies to use in their new control cabinets, one manufacturer asked other installers for their recommendations. TDK-Lambda’s HWS1000 power supply was selected, and for additional protection, the /HD option code was chosen, which includes board coating to reduce the impact of any contaminants. Backed by a limited lifetime warranty, the HWS series is designed using conservative component ratings for extended field life.

TDK-Lambda offers a wide range of standard Industrial Power Supplies for industrial, test and measurement applications. For more information about the HWS series, please visit:
