Extron Power Supplies Reach the Demonstrated MTBF Mark of 1,000,000 Hours

Extron Electronics is pleased to announce that our Extron designed and manufactured power supplies have reached the 1,000,000 hour mark in demonstrated MTBF, Mean Time Between Failures. This feat was accomplished by exposing the power supplies to extreme testing in our in-house heating chamber that supports elevated temperature as well as constant temperature conditions. While most manufacturers purchase off-the-shelf switch mode power supplies that can be subject to variations in quality and reliability, we design and manufacture our own power supplies to ensure Extron quality throughout the product. To demonstrate the exceptional performance of our power supplies, we subjected them to grueling testing that lasted more than two years. We simulated an accelerated operational life span by placing a sample quantity of power supplies in a heat chamber at an ambient temperature of 85°C. This produced a demonstrated MTBF rather than a less reliable calculated MTBF that is based on the stated specifications of the individual components. more
