The deal also allows Fidus, set up three years ago by the former founder and CEO of XP Power, access to Murata’s technical support resources. “We are especially interested in bringing Murata’s new technology to our customers. Two recent examples of technology leadership products that have emerged from Murata Power are the very compact 1U D1U86P-W-220 AC/DC 2.2kW front end, and the PQC250 250W convection-cooled switching power supply, which is again space-saving,” said Larry Tracey, Director of Fidus Power.
It recruited support engineers with wide applications knowledge, across diverse fields such as motors, pumps, automation, medical, machine vision and sensors. Using their detailed product knowledge, Fidus Power’s engineers can advise on input ranges, peak power outputs, thermal envelop and modifications. The company currently distributes modules and supplies from 40 companies.
