Powerbox wins Power Product of the Year in recognition of its technical prowess in coreless power solution
Powerbox, one of Europe’s largest power supply companies with more than four decades as a leading force in optimizing power solutions for demanding applications, has won the Power Product of the Year accolade at the prestigious Electronics Industry Awards. Organized by Datateam Business Media in association with CIE magazine, the Electronics Industry Awards is designed to recognize the many successes in the electronics industry, celebrating outstanding companies, people and products. At a special awards ceremony in Birmingham on September 22, Powerbox’s Chief Marketing and Communications Officer Patrick Le Fèvre accepted the award from Intelliconnect’s Managing Director, Roy Phillips.
Powerbox’s winning entry, the coreless GB350, is a 350W buck converter that is used to power equipment in medical and industrial applications such as MRI scanners and particle accelerators. Faced with the challenge of designing a unit that operates within an MRI scanner with a magnetic field of 6 Tesla, engineers at Powerbox did away with magnetic cores altogether and created a unit with air-
Amy Wallington, editor at CIE magazine, comments: “I would like to congratulate Powerbox on winning the Power Product of the Year Award. The company should be very proud of this huge achievement, especially as it was voted the winner by their colleagues in the electronics industry. We wish them every success in the year ahead with any new products and hope to see them entered again next year."
"It is very apt that Powerbox has won an Electronics Industry Award for a product that is so innovative. It is also a strong sign that the advanced coreless technology developed by our engineers in Bremen is recognized worldwide as leading edge technology to power medical applications," said Martin Sjöstrand, CEO at Powerbox. "It is with great pride and recognition that we receive this award for a product that will contribute to make diagnostic and treatment better and more efficient."

Critical applications operating in hostile or confined environments are strictly regulated in terms of chemical and other hazardous risks, reducing or forbidding certain type of batteries such as Lithium Ion. For safety reasons, those applications must have a power backup long enough to run alarms and safety shutdown processes. In such arduous conditions conventional batteries are replaced by supercapacitor banks whose values could be from few Farads to 200 Farads for general applications, but up to container size in the case of large systems.

“The number of applications requiring emergency backup or high peak current are growing, and integrating supercapacitors within power supplies is becoming an extremely reliable and well suited option to be considered by system architects.” said Patrick Le Fèvre, Powerbox’s Chief Marketing and Communication Officer. “Powerbox’s S-
Compared to Lithium Ion which has a cyclability (number of recharges) of 500 to 1,000, supercapacitors can sustain from 500,000 to 20,000,000 cycles, making that technology extremely relevant for applications requiring large amounts of charge /discharge cycles with high energy such as industrial or medical lasers. This is what S-
