Power supply board coating used to mitigate contamination from printer ink chemicals

Posted by Martin on September 19, 2019

Digital printing continues to thrive in the commercial printing industry. Faster print speeds, speciality fluorescent inks and the ability to automate a very large number of small and large jobs, makes them ideal for the offset printer market.  Machine reliability is key to a product’s success as these printers are often used 24 hours a day to meet demanding schedules.

Having had good experience using TDK-Lambda power supplies, a digital printer design team asked for product suggestions for a 48V output 1000W power supply.  The recently introduced RWS1000-48/CO2 with 7-year warranty was offered, which included printed circuit board coating.  This option was chosen as contaminates from ink chemicals can affect long-term reliability in electronics.
