Many view the agricultural sector as one of the most traditional and old-fashioned sectors in our modern economy. Whilst it is true that farming has, since the dawn of civilisation to recent times, been largely unchanged. In the last few decades, this has changed dramatically. Modern agriculture uses state-of-the-art technology to drive down operational costs and improve profitability in the sector. Farmers are now turning to a new tool to revolutionise their trade: powerful drones.

Most standard power supplies are controlled by analogue signals from passive components. Even the most sophisticated power systems have an extremely limited pathway for configuring and monitoring crucial parameters like fault data and adjusting output voltage.
But as the industry has developed greater need for power systems with greater accuracy and precision control in key adjustable operating parameters, many system designers have turned to digital controlled power supplies for on-the-fly monitoring and management of their crucial power systems.

Whilst standard industry-grade power supplies are great for commercial and industrial workloads, when it comes to defence appliances, there exists a whole host of different requirements to meet the standards for use in the military.
Defence applications are one of the most demanding scenarios for power appliances, combining the high DC output needed to drive complex machinery with extreme endurance and ruggedisation to increase the safety and longevity of devices.

When do I need a high voltage power supply?
A high voltage power supply is a power conversion circuit that converts a low potential difference input to a high potential difference. With an AC current, it’s fairly simple to variate voltage levels via a transformer, but this isn’t the case for DC power.
In the past, there was little need for high voltage applications, with low voltage 12V/24V/48V industrial power supplies being the norm. However, nowadays, as industrial applications become more and more demanding, the demand for high voltage outputs has grown accordingly. Whilst many companies have opted to research and develop their own bespoke DC-DC solutions, the astronomical cost involved in designing industrial power supplies makes this option off-limits to smaller firms and users.
