Learn How to Achieve Efficient Power Solutions with Avnet Abacus



Avnet Abacus, one of Europe's leading power, interconnect, passive, and electromechanical distributors is teaming up with some of the world's leading manufacturers of power components to deliver a series of free technical seminars in five locations across Europe focused on the difficult challenges that face power system design engineers. In the one-day sessions, Avnet Abacus and its franchises Aimtec, Cymbet, Emerson, Enpiron, Excelsys, Murata Power Solutions, Power Integrations, and Schaffner will provide an overview of environmental and energy efficient directives impacting power supply design. Explains Cor van Dam, Avnet Abacus' European Marketing Director: "Efficient use of power is a challenge that affects everyone. There are many issues: new mandatory regulations will require standby (no-load) energy consumption to approach Zero watts; consumers demands that battery-powered devices have a long life between recharging; and LED lighting systems must be powered correctly or the benefits are wasted. Our seminar series will address these topics and many more, and we encourage design engineers to raise their own specific areas of interest during the extensive Q&A sessions with technical representatives from the participating companies." There will also be tabletop presentations from leading manufacturers of associated power products including Molex, Pulse and TE Connectivity. The seminars are scheduled for: Paris - 4th October, Novotel Charenton Milan - 12th October, Avnet Abacus office Stuttgart - 20th October, Avnet Abacus office Munich - 25th October, Avnet Abacus office Newbury - 3rd November, Avnet Abacus office Design engineers are invited to register for the free seminars by visiting www.avnet.abacus.eu/poweror call +44-1628 512940.
