Industrial to us is where EN/UL-60950 is the main standard, as for example in automation, building control, signaling, test & measurement and many more.
We have been powering demanding industrial applications for more than 40 years. The more demanding the application, the better the odds we can offer you a differentiating advantage in the form of an optimized solution. “Demanding” might for instance refer to electrical specification, environmental conditions, EMC requirements, or number of outputs. Our solutions span from single output converters to systems with multiple outputs, redundancy, back-up, etc.
Our range of power converters covers AC/DC, DC/AC, DC/DC with a wide span of voltages and power, from a few watts to many kilowatts. The extensive standard range, comprising a combination of our own designs and products from our leading partners, is complemented by our custom design capabilities, ensuring we can always provide optimized solutions. We accommodate any mechanical format and several different cooling principles. Communications interfaces and control software can also be incorporated.
We have a long term approach to customer relations. Working together we create competitive advantages by means of optimized power solutions.
Typical demanding industrial applications
Our extensive experience in powering industrial applications covers many different application areas, as automation, building control, signaling, test & measurement and many more. Some examples are:
- Outdoor applications (Industrial cranes, surveillance equipment, remote sites, off shore)
- Mains grid (relays, generation, transmission, distribution)
- Control systems (signaling, monitoring, redundancy)
- Production lines (reliability, redundancy)
- Oil and gas (ATEX classifications)
- Mobile applications (rugged pc applications, forest machines, automatic guided vehicles)
- High-wattage and Multi-channel LED Drivers
The standard which to us in itself is a definition of the Industrial segment is EN/UL60950.
With 40 years of designing Industrial power supplies and systems we are not only experienced in meeting various standards for different types of applications or different parts of the world. We have also followed the development of new standards and are well prepared for the requirements to come.
Caring for the environment
At Powerbox we take an active role in protecting our environment. Our contribution includes:
Streamlined solutions and lean design using fewer components reduces material used. RoHS, WEEE and REACH are among the standards governing choice of materials.
High efficiency reduces energy consumption both directly by reducing losses and indirectly by reducing the need for cooling.
Energy efficient transportation and well developed
use of online meetings are important elements in our determination to meet or exceed international standards by sustaining ISO-14001 compliance or the equivalent.
We lean confidently on over 40 years of experience and subject matter expertise to identify the best means of solving every particular power conversion challenge. Please contact a power conversion specialist with your need today.
The challenge: With the development of large cities and growing demand for inter-city exchanges, existing train networks are often insufficient on their own and require complimentary fleets of busses to enable passengers to reach destinations efficiently. For passengers convenience and connectability while traveling, new vehicles are equipped with individual video systems, high speed internet access […]

Powerbox has announced a new range of high-voltage input DC/DC converters for microgrid, datacenters and industrial applications. Part of its industrial line, the new series of HVDC/DC converters operate with an input voltage range of 180VDC to 425VDC, and deliver output power levels from 150W to 750W. The range of applications powered by high-voltage DC supplies is rapidly expending, and from the latest microgrids and datacenters using high voltage DC (HVDC) bus voltages to reduce power losses through to industrial systems, all of these applications require ready to use, board-mounted power converters.
Powerbox has introduced a 100W potted AC/DC power supply, ready for industrial systems integration. Aimed at compact industrial systems applications with limited space, the ENI100 has a narrow width of 31.7mm and a length of 140mm making it easy to fit in even the smallest of places.
Powerbox, one of Europe’s largest power supply companies and a leading force for four decades in optimizing power solutions for demanding applications, has announced that Chief Marketing and Communications Officer Patrick Le Fèvre will present a paper on the subject of ‘smart grid security’ at the Applied Power Electronics Conferences (APEC).
