- Power supply and rectifier repairs
The majority of our engineers come from a design background rather than a service background. Technical understanding of power supply topologies means we can repair even the most complex of units, modify designs or suggest alternatives if required.
As standard, we offer the following:
12 Month warranty on all repairs - double the period typically offered.
48 hour turnaround on request - need it back urgently? No problem.
No fix, no fee - if we fail to repair an item, all you pay is return carriage.
Fixed repair cost for the majority of power supplies - know your costs up front.
Full PAT and flash test facilities - electrical safety assured
Detailed technical understanding of all power supply types - Just need advice? Give us a call
- Power supply refurbishment
You may wish to take a more pro-active approach towards failures and prevention of costly down time. Our refurbishment service replaces ALL components prone to ageing irrespective of their condition - you get a fully refreshed product which should give many more years of trouble free service.
- Farnell and Advance PSU new replacements
We manufacture a range of products which faithfully replicate obsolete Farnell / Advance power supplies using modern components and manufacturing techniques. This offers the hassle-free simplicity of a like for like swap with the original product.
Where we do not currently have a replacement product available, we can design and manufacture replacement units which meet or exceed the original specification. You get a fully approved unit which slots in as per the original item.
We have a portfolio of reliable designs which have been field proven over many years. We know exactly what we are doing which means you get exactly what you need. Right first time, every time…. and reliability guaranteed.
Because of the way we are structured we can deal with any volume from a one off to the manufacture of full production batches – all to ISO9001 & ISO14001 standards. There is no penalty for low volume.
- Custom electronics design consultancy
Our skills are not limited to just power supplies. If you have a custom electronics design requirement and need a quality solution by some of the best engineers in the UK, talk to us. CE marked as standard, all our work is ISO9001 and ISO14001 compliant. Safety, traceability and accountability is guaranteed.
Our history in field service means we know the vulnerabilities of poor design. APS provide products that are built to last. We call it "Design for Life", because with the right approach, great quality should not mean prohibitively expensive.
- MIG and TIG high frequency (inverter) welder repairs
At the heart of every inverter welder is a switch mode power supply (psu). It might seem logical to have your welder serviced with a general welding repair house but only a switch mode psu repair specialist has the technical understanding to accurately identify and rectify faults on the power stage, which is by far the most common failure.
We also check associated components that might have been stressed by the failure to prevent the welder from failing again soon after repair.
APS give you a professional welder repair with a full 12 month warranty. Because we don't sell welding equipment, our sole motivation is to repair your existing welder… not sell you a new one at four times the cost!
We can repair TIG, MIG and plasma cutters from all the mainstream manufacturers, including:
Alfra, Bosch, Britweld, Butters, Cea, Cebora, Eland, ERP, ESAB, Fronius, Hobart, Hypertherm, Inverter Fusion, Kemppi, Lincoln Electric, Lorch, Migatronic, Miller, Mosa, MTA, Murex, Newarc, Oerlikon, Oxford, Rotabroach, R-Tech, SAF, SDMO, Sealey, SIP, Stephill, Sureweld, SWP, TecArc, Tecna, Thermadyne, Thermal Arc, TPS Fronius, Warriror, Xcalibur
- Electronic load repairs
We can repair electronic loads from most manufacturers, including:
Aggreko, Amrel Power, Avtron, B&K Precision, Chroma, Crestchic, Elektro Automatik, Farnell, Fideris, Froment, GW Instek, Hocherl & Hackl, Hillstone, LDB (Load banks direct), Loadtec, Manatronics, Marel. NH Research (NHR), Prodigit, Rhode & Shwartz, SBS, Sephco, Sorenson, Thurlby Thandar (TTi)
- Product compliance and qualification testing
We have the facilities and equipment to carry out pre-compliance indicative tests at a fraction of the cost of a full test house.
Whether it be conductive or radiated EMC, safety clearances, temperature rise analysis, reliability & ALT testing, MTBF calculations or simply certifying a product against it's written specification – we can help ensure that your product goes to market fully compliant with all relevant standards.
- UPS repair, sales and sourcing
An uninterruptible power supply or UPS is an electrical apparatus that provides emergency backup power to a load when the input source (typically mains power) fails. Most models also provide protection from mains surges, spikes and voltage fluctuations.
There is a bewildering array of UPS's to choose from. On-line, line-interactive and standby are the most common but it is also important is that the UPS is sized appropriately for the application, so the correct VA rating is essential.
As well as offering comprehensive UPS repair and maintenance services, APS have an excellent technical understanding of the different UPS technologies available and will make sure the correct one is specified for your application.
We are not partnered with any specific manufacturer so our recommendations are based on the best suited, most cost effective products which have field proven reliability.
