New power microsite offers ‘Ask an Expert’ facility

February 17, 2011 // By Paul Buckley
One of Europe’s leading power management distributors, Avnet Abacus, is launching a new power microsite that will not only offer product information on its full portfolio of power products, but will also be kept up to date with the latest guidelines and legislation information.

The new Web site will also feature an ‘Ask an Expert’ facility and provide a portal to a wealth of supplier resources including manufacturers  design call centres, demonstration and test boards, webcasts, application training,  and even complete design software including Bills of Materials and specifications for transformers and inductors.

Avnet Abacus acts as a distributor for a number of major power equipment manufacturers including Emerson, Murata Power Solutions, Ericsson, Lineage and Power-One, as well as offering discrete solutions from Power Integrations plus standard and custom battery packs and cells from VARTA Microbattery.

Graham McBeth, President of Avnet Abacus, said, “Customers are not waiting for new regulations to emerge but are seeking to implement green designs now. Avnet Abacus offers them access to a team of specialist FAEs  and a package of other design resources that helps ensure that their next power project has a power architecture that fully meets the current and forthcoming regulations, and is best in class in terms of efficiency and reliability. We go well beyond the traditional distribution FAE role and act as the power design consultant within the customers’ design team.”
