Designing For Reliability In High Voltage Applications

In any type of manufacturing or high-voltage design, there needs to be a set of rules that are followed to produce a product that’s going to be reliable over the long term. Electronics often have to perform in extremely harsh environments and this means that their high-voltage power supplies need to be able to perform in those environments as well. What many manufacturers are doing to meet these challenges is miniaturize their power supplies and make sure that they can be mastered for ongoing operation in the field.

A failure to redesign these power supplies could lead to problems with electronic devices, breakdowns at low and high voltages or catastrophic overheating. Repairing and redesigning these high-voltage power supplies could be a crucial aspect of electronic design and maintenance, working with a team that can take a look at a variety of material properties.

The combination of material properties and managing leakage currents over time can be crucial in the design of reliability in these systems. Any electronic device has the chance to experience high leaking currents and must perform to maintain a larger system will require some type of proper housing and control.

From absorbed moisture to managing dynamic thermal conditions, we can make recommendations on the best tools that can prevent the destabilization of electrical items. Through the proper design and manufacturing of control mechanisms, filters and housings, we can make sure that we can produce systems that will exceed manufacturer standards for excellence in the field of electronics.
