The Ultimate Guide to Replacing Farnell, Gould or Advance Power Supplies (PSUs)

Replacing Farnell and Advance Power Supplies Guide

Replacing ageing, obsolete Farnell, Gould or Advance power supplies.

If you are looking to replace ageing obsolete Farnell, Gould or Advance power supplies with new, equivalents of the original DC power supply units or rectifiers, APS can help. From the 1960s to 2002, many niche products were built by Farnell, Gould and Advance for telecoms, oil, gas & water, power generation, industrial automation, transport, telecoms and defence Sectors. An impressive number of these ageing PSU’s are still operational now, but for how long? With the original power outputs and control signals specifically designed for your application, it is difficult or impossible to find the easy replacement solution. What you really want is a fit-form-function replacement built to the same, original Advance, Farnell or Gould specifications.

Advance Product Services Ltd (APS).

After Farnell / Advance / Gould and then ultimately APC closed the gates on the UK design and manufacture of power supplies, a group of highly skilled design engineers from the company setup APS to provide repair, preventative maintenance and replacement solutions for the obsolete power supplies (PSUs) in critical infrastructure across the world.
