The management team at
POWER-IO have over 60 years of combined experience with industrial
automation, lighting control, power control, and power switching applications.
POWER-IO was formed in order to expand the use of solid state power switching (
ssr, scr, igbt, mosfet, or microprocessor supervised solid state contactor )
technology in automation applications from 0.1 amp up to hundreds of amps. In
addition, POWER-IO can offer specific, custom designed products that
incorporate power switching as one of the primary elements of the product.
The POWER-IO technology is based
upon the following core competencies:
- scr design knowledge directly at
the silicon wafer creation stage
- use of oversized dies for
stronger amperage surge capability
- ceramic pcb assembly, sometimes
called dcb or dbc bonding capability
- thermal transfer optimization
that results in better thermal efficiencies than are typical in the
- design of custom heatsinks that
results in the outstanding performance in industrial or commercial
- the trademarked Maximum Surge
Survival technology -- an advanced method of using 3 protective levels to
minimize damage from voltage surges
- custom interfaces for vac
control inputs, vdc control inputs, 4-20mA inputs, Modbus communications,
DeviceNet multi-drop communications and more.
- current limited vdc input
requirements of the POWER-IO products mean that they can interface to PLC or PC
based control systems.
- indepth industry experience to
resolve technical questions quickly, accurately, and fully
POWER-IO also has a history of
designing customized products and completing the testing procedures at UL, CSA,
and CE, in a rapid fashion.
