Through partnerships with colleges and universities Polyamp gets a knowledge exchange with competent and independent experts, which promotes a holistic aspect and strengthens Polyamp's competitiveness.

Technology

Mechanics

  • Most Polyamp PSU used air cooling or conduction cooling. To achieve a low average temperature providing long life expectancy, we use a more expensive aluminum casing of the unit. Other than that, it provides excellent mechanical, environmental, EMC and fire properties.
  • Polyamp has always used robust aluminum profile case. The reason was that Polyamp's founder already in the 1960-ties had the notion that aluminum has a good heat transfer true the material but not along. To achieve that, you need more material to spread the heat.
  • Secondly the surface color do not matter for the cooling effect, therefore the Polyamp profiles where greenish until the 80-ties when this "Polyamp Green" becomed obsolete, therefore we changed to the current gold/yellow color. This color does not add to the cost of the case.
  • We also use to use surface increasing methods, however realized it's better to have a flat surface and increase the thickness to spread the heat, then add more aluminum for better cooling.
  • Aluminum is expensive to produce as a raw material, however easy to recycle and the fact is today that our cases contain 70% recycled aluminum and our design makes the profiles easy to recycle.

Installations are made within 5 min

  • The units are supplied with different attachment methods depending on the model such as: wall mounting, DIN rail, 19"-subrack module or 19"-modular. The units have no ventilation holes to prevent dust from entering the interior portion, which is important for industrial and mobile applications. All models are convection-cooled (not PC1400 & PC2000) and require no special installation or additional cooling. The units can be mounted in any direction.

Standards

  • Our internal design requirements to meet the standards are tough. That's because the same product must meet multiple applications with different requirements.
  • We have extensive experience and can guide the customer in what is required in their applications.

CE

  • All products are CE marked, for electrical safety, EMC and RoHS directives.

Galvanic separation

  • All of Polyamp DC/DC converters are galvanic ally isolated between input / output and input / output to chassis.

Ripple

  • Usually, there is much "dirt" in all electrical wires and here Polyamp set the bar high to fix this as much as possible.
  • We have filters on the input AND output, which gives an output current which is much cleaner compared to what other manufacturers can offer.
  • Also see our FAQ.

EMC

  • EMC is the scourge of modern life since it creates elusive problem. Polyamp has long taken these problems 100% seriously, and we build our equipment for maximum interference protection.
  • Also see our FAQ.

Special

  • We manufacture DC-DC converters for specific customer needs.
  • We try wherever possible to modify standard equipment within the confines of the CE marking.

Quality system

  • Polyamp is ISO9001:2008 certified and have had system since 1993 and working with Lean methods since 1998. We also have an extension for Nuclear Power plant 1E. Open our ISO9001:2008 Certificate.

Support system

  • Electronics production involves complex logistics since each product contains hundreds of components and if one is missing a product can not be built.
  • Polyamp have had computerized support system since 1983, which helps us to provide fast and accurate delivery information. We are every year very close to 98% on date delivery.

Mine Protection

  • One department works with Deagussing systems for Naval ships and submarines as Polyamp is a world leader in high-tech equipment.

Application

Railways

  • We are traditionally common in the railway sector, thanks to high quality products and close customer relationships with service in focus.
