Navy chooses 150-Watt power supplies from Daitron for underwater warfare systems support
KEYPORT, Wash., 28 July 2014. U.S. Navy underwater warfare experts needed 150-Watt single-channel power supplies for a variety of support for submarines, torpedoes, land-attack systems, and fleet training systems. They found their solution from Daitron Inc. in Wilsonville Ore.
Officials of the Naval Undersea Warfare Center (NUWC) Division in Keyport, Wash., announced plans last week to negotiate a contract with Daitron for 80 HFS150A series ultra low noise switching power supplies. The exact application was not specified.
NUWC Keyport provides support for submarines, torpedoes, land-attack systems, and fleet training systems. Support services we provide include in-service engineering, test and evaluation, custom engineering, and other technologies to sustain Navy undersea warfare systems.
The Daitron HFS150A is an ultra-low-noise AC/DC switching power supply for industrial and medical applications. It features built-in proprietary based technology to reduce noise enough level for noise-sensitive systems, Daitron officials say. Very low leakage current feature also can keep external filter circuit design work and space to a minimum.
