In the world of power electronics for the railway sector, Premium PSU has established itself as a manufacturer of reliable and efficient solutions in the low-power range.
Here are the reasons behind Premium PSU’s decision to increase the power of its equipment and how this strategy has led to an increase in revenue and customer satisfaction.
Confidence in reliability: Premium PSU has earned an enviable reputation for the reliability of its products in the low-power range. Customers trust the quality and durability of their devices, which led Premium PSU to consider expanding into high-power solutions.
Customer demand: The demand for high-power solutions in the railway sector is undeniable. Premium PSU’s customers, satisfied with the quality of its lowpower products, encouraged the company to explore this market and offer more powerful solutions.
Less competitive market: As the company moves towards higher-power solutions, the railway market has less competition compared to low-power solutions. The manufacture and design of high-power devices are inherently more complex, providing opportunities to stand out in a less crowded niche.
Increased revenue: It is a well-known fact that as the power of a product increases, so does its price. This increase in unit value directly translates into higher revenue for the company.
Premium PSU began its foray into the DC/DC converter segment with 100W models and has since followed a gradual strategy of power increment. Today, the CRS-1000 DC/DC series is its 1000W standard, and it has also launched the CRS-2000 DC/DC series, both of which are parallelisable. Finally, the newest series that stands out for the railway market is the CBS-10K model, a single-output DC/DC converter offering a peak power of up to 10kW for 40 seconds.
