Powerbox (PRBX) wins Power System Product of the Year in prestigious Elektra Awards
Powerbox, one of Europe’s largest power supply companies, and for more than four decades a leading force in optimizing power solutions for demanding applications, has won the Power System Product of the Year award in the prestigious Elektra Awards held by Electronics Weekly. It is the second time in recent years that Powerbox has lifted this much revered award.
With its Elektra Awards, Electronics Weekly seeks to recognize the best of what the electronics industry has to offer, worldwide. The Awards recognize excellence within the global electronics industry, and has welcomed entries from manufacturers, distributors, designers, individuals, research groups and start-ups in order to accurately reflect the nature of today’s dynamic electronics industry.
Powerbox’s winning Elektra entry was for its OFI600A12 power supply, an ‘industry first’ power supply solution for immersed applications such as hyper loaded computing machines. It is the first commercial power supply designed to meet immersed applications specifications and guarantee the highest level of safety for system and operators.
