XP Power releases power supply app and web interactive product selector

February 09, 2012 // By Paul Buckley
XP Power has released two new online product selection tools for engineers that ease the process of choosing a power supply. Available from the XP Power web site, the product selector allows searching by product type, (AC-DC or DC-DC), or by application type such as healthcare, industrial, technology, defense and avionics and LED lighting.

Simple search parameters such as power rating, input voltage, output voltage(s) and mechanical format provide a quick and straightforward method of finding the ideal power supply from a choice of over 2,000 models in XP Power’s product line-up. It is also possible to search products specifically classified as green power. Once your search has yielded results you can then simply select the model number that suits your specific requirements in order to obtain full product data, download the datasheet, or check stock with Farnell.

The second selection tool now available is a free dedicated app for use on Apple iOS or Android-based smartphones and devices. The app allows designers and engineers to quickly and effortlessly find the best XP Power products for their specific application and complements the website product selector.

The interactive phone app provides immediate access to over 2000 models within XP Power’s product range by the simple selection of key design parameters, offering exact match or closest fit solutions. Once the suitable power supply is chosen, the engineer has the opportunity to view detailed product datasheets, share product information via email, create a bill of materials, or email the BOM for a quote, leadtimes, or further information. The app also enables you to find your closest XP office or distributor and also check stock or order parts from the Farnell website.
