Video Display Corporation Unit Awarded Patent for Encapsulated, PCB-Mountable AC/DC Converter

Wednesday, September 05, 2007

Unique design eliminates exposed high-voltage traces on system boards; provides long life over wide temperature range for commercial, industrial and medical applications

Atlanta, GA -- Video Display Corporation (Nasdaq: VIDE) announces that its BEAR Power Supplies unit has been issued US Patent Number 7,259,971 for its encapsulated PCB-mountable AC/DC power converter with detachable AC line cord.

The patented design provides improved convenience, safety and long-term reliability for designers of AC-powered electronic equipment. In addition to the detachable line cord, the compact design incorporates a "remote enable" function that allows the power supply to be turned on or off from a switch on a system’s front panel, without the need to route the primary AC power to the front panel.

"This patent further demonstrates our expertise and our commitment to innovation in power supply design for demanding commercial, industrial and medical applications," BEAR president, Michael Allen, said. "It is just one example of the many innovations we make every day, in both our standard and our custom power supplies, to make life easier for our customers."
