WHY CHOOSE AMREL?
AMREL’s extensive product offering and many industry firsts in the area of features and benefits plays only a small part in answering the question,"WHY CHOOSE AMREL?"

Programmable dc Power Products Designed by You
We give our customers what they want when they want it.  As a result, AMREL’s ePower line of programmable dc power supplies (20W to 900kW+) and eLoad line of programmable dc electronic loads (60W to 100kW+) have been tailored to meet the customer’s needs, not ours. 


AMREL’s Programmable dc Power Products:
• Over 80% started out as a customization for a particular client
• Widest selection and range available
• Over 200 standard designs


“Customizable COTS”
AMREL coined the term “Customizable COTS” to describe a unique blend of standardization, speed and special service. Our customers value the convenience of Commercial-Off-The-Shelf programmable dc power products, but they also need to fulfill specific application requirements.

To enable quick and easy modifications, our team of mechanical, electronic and software experts created unique modular designs and board layouts for our eLoad programmable dc electronic loads and ePower programmable dc power supplies product lines. 

“Customizable COTS” allow AMREL’s programmable dc electronic loads and programmable dc power supplies to meet the customer’s particular application needs, while being compatible with other providers’ software. For that reason, they can be effortlessly dropped into any setup.


“Customizable COTS” Benefits
• No impact on lead time
• More than 85% of customizations done without NRE charges
• Typical customizations include replacing firmware, changing ranges,
adding special connectors,altering form factors and improving accuracies


A Pioneer in Innovation
Since we are constantly providing solutions to our customers, AMREL is often first to introduce new advances.  For example, our clients told us that they didn’t like the downtime caused by the annual calibration of their equipment. So, AMREL pioneered closed-case calibrated loads, which enabled adjustments in the field, saving time and money.

Other AMREL Firsts include:
• Ethernet connectivity for electronic loads and power supplies
• 1U high 600W eLoad
• Programmable multi-channel controller offering virtually endless master/slave capabilities
• Greatest power dissipation density in a water-cooled load on the market (2U high 18kW unit)
