Replacing Farnell and Advance Power Supplies Guide

Replacing ageing, obsolete Farnell or Advance power supplies.

Are you looking to replace ageing obsolete Farnell or Advance power supplies with new, equivalents of the original DC power supply units or rectifiers? From the 1960s to the late 1990’s many niche products were built by Farnell and Advance for telecoms, power generation, industrial machinery, transport and defence. 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 solution. What you really want is a new exact copy or a replacement built to the same, original specification.
