API is an engineering-focused organization that attracts and cultivates top engineering talent. This enables API to apply innovation and experience to every product and solution the company delivers. The product described in this proposal will be designed in API’s State College, Pennsylvania facility, and built in API Technologies’ Mexico and/or China facility. All facilities are certified to ISO 9001-2000 and adhere to API Technologies' world class manufacturing techniques ensuring each customer receives the same highly reliable product.
API Technologies' Power & Systems Solutions
API Technologies' Power Solutions is a well-respected manufacturer of power strips, power distribution, and circuit protection systems for both DC and AC power applications. We have developed products as an OEM/ODM international partner to the industry's top names. We have created a line of "off the shelf' (OTS) products which encompasses our AC Power Strips with or without our advanced power monitoring, AC/DC Smart Start Power Distribution Units, and AC Sequencers. Other products offered include Data Acquisition Modules and DC Breaker/Fuse Interface Panel products for traditional power distribution circuit protection applications. Our Team prides itself in the ability to engage and develop customer specific solutions that meet those unique applications.
The AC Power Strips and Power Distribution Units offer many optional features including the convenience of power distribution with remote power cycling and monitoring. These monitoring devices are ideal in connected networking and enterprise devices in Telco, Datacom Centers or IT locations, Industrial Manufacturing and Test Environments, as well as Transport and Highway Management Centers.
Our DC Battery Disconnect Panels and PDUs include low voltage & over voltage disconnect (LVD/OVD) to protect valuable equipment from potential battery feed faults. Remote control management and circuit protection capabilities are also available. Imagine the benefits and value of resetting a circuit breaker remotely!
