SPS starts major new project

We are delighted to announce that SPS will be collaborating with one of its longest standing customers Ceres Power Ltd. on a new Innovate UK project for the next 18 months. This is aimed at taking the existing fully-qualified compact power electronics (PE) system for domestic micro CHP and making it production ready for other markets including the Far East.  The existing PE unit has been in constant use for 8 years at Ceres Power, including the SteelGen™ units deployed with British Gas in the European funded ene.field programme.

SPS is looking forward to the opportunity to apply the latest technologies to the system as well as gain experience in different geographical markets each of which has their own challenges.

SPS Joins AESIN

SPS has recently joined two industry bodies which closely reflect the type of work it is involved in. Both are managed and promoted by TechWorks https://nmi.org.uk/techworks-launch/.

AESIN – The Automotive Electronic Systems Innovation Network http://aesin.org.uk/ is a dedicated UK initiative focused on the accelerated and advanced delivery of Electronic Systems into Automotive Applications and infrastructure. This is another perfect fit given the work we do on xEV systems and other intelligent actuator and motor drive systems for automotive applications.

Power Electronics UK https://www.power-electronics.org.uk/ has been set up to promote the thriving UK power electronics sector and provide a forum for collaboration. It is a very natural fit for SPS and we are looking forward to being actively involved.

A very successful PCIM

We are now back from PCIM 2016 in Nuremberg. This was the first time that SPS had exhibited at the show and it turned out to be very successful for us. We had plenty of interest in our stand and were complemented by many visitors (including a competitor!) on the breadth of our product development experience. Our mix of power electronics and embedded control really impressed people.

SPS to attend PCIM 2016 Nuremberg

We are delighted to report that SPS will be attending the PCIM exhibition in Nuremberg between 10th and 12th May 2016. We will be in booth 6-338 and will be exhibiting both the design and manufacturing sides of the business. PCIM is a unique event and we believe that SPS will be able to demonstrate quite a unusual offering at the show given it covers the full spectrum of both design and manufacturing. SPS is able to take on complex subassembly and even full system builds unlike others companies in the market.
