Tektronix has bought EA Elektro-Automatik in Germany for its high-efficiency regenerative power supplies.

EA Elektro-Automatik in Viersen, Germany supplies high-power power supplies and electronic loads to be combined with the Tektronix oscilloscopes and isolated probes and Keithley’s high-precision source meters and instrumentation.

“Our customers are facing challenges in delivering safe and reliable power electronics designs that incorporate new technologies such as high energy density batteries, efficient electric motors, smart power inverters, and wide-bandgap semiconductors, for high power and performance to electrify industries and meet an ever-increasing energy demand to power our world,” said Markus Schyboll, CEO of EA Elektro-Automatik.

“Many companies offer partial power electronics design solutions, but now Tektronix offers an extensive set of products for industry-wide electrification,” said Chris Bohn, Tektronix President. “These aren’t just any regenerative power supplies. EA equipment adds high-efficiency regenerative power capabilities to the Tektronix portfolio that are critical to supporting our future-facing electrification goals.”

The combination provides analysis of power electronics performance dynamics with Tektronix MSO oscilloscopes and IsoVu probes, to semiconductor characterization and quality control for low power/high precision designs with Keithley SMUs and precision measurement instruments, and now with the addition of EA solutions to the portfolio. This provides up to 3.8 megawatts with industry-leading regenerative efficiency >96% to cover the full range of customer power needs.

EA’s power supplies complement the Tektronix portfolio of cutting-edge scopes, probes, SMUs, and precision measurement instruments, allowing users to scale up in voltage to 2,000V or current up to 64,000A with a low noise regenerative instrument to minimize added heat and EMI noise.
