ABOUT EXELTECH INVERTERS – TRUE SINE WAVE POWER INVERTERS
EXELTECH was founded in 1990, based on the philosophy that efficiencies in the manufacturing process through product design, coordinated with facility layout, was paramount to productivity and the key to a quality product. Our mission is to provide leadership electronics and superior customer service through the merging of innovative designs with advanced manufacturing technology.
Building quality through design, which enhances our ability to manufacture, is the primary goal at EXELTECH. Through the utilizing of surface mount technology, all design and manufacturing are performed in our facility, located in FORT WORTH, TEXAS. “Pick and place” machines are set up with parts that are standard to all models, eliminating both setup time and errors created when reloading or setting up machines. Only large capacitors and magnetics are placed by hand, in an effort to minimize human error through automation. Hand soldering is eliminated using vapor phase reflow. Point-to-point wiring is eliminated with extensive use of PCB’s to perform interconnectivity functions. The use of extruded aluminum for mechanics has reduced the number of nut, bolt, and screw points usage to one-fourth of previous products, while increasing heat dissipation efficiency and lending a functional form factor to the product.
While ensuring the design of the products complies with automated manufacturing processes continues, our people remain the most important part of the quality equation. All employees go through a six-month internship before becoming full-time staff members. All employees are cross-trained for multi-task capability. With a PULL system, each station performs a quality check on the performance of the previous station. Data for first time yield and DPU is recorded and analyzed by each station and bench-tested in an ongoing effort to yield a zero defect process. Upon final assembly, all products then proceed to “accelerated life testing” (ALT) to minimize “infant mortality.” Packaging and shipping procedures are constantly evaluated to reduce damage.
All repairs are performed at the factory to receive quality feedback and input for future design. The net result of these philosophies is a line of products that demonstrate an MTBF (mean time between failures) in excess of twenty years and offers the most competitively priced true sine inverters available anywhere.
Our commitment to quality and total customer satisfaction has allowed EXELTECH to become innovators in the DC to AC power product market. A few of our “firsts” include the smallest, lightest high frequency PWM sine wave inverter; the first “N+1″ redundant inverter systems; “hot” swappable capability; and a “modular” design. Our many satisfied customers include AT&T, BROOK HAVEN NATIONAL LABS, DIGITAL EQUIPMENT CORPORATION, MOTOROLA, MCI, GTE GOVERNMENT SYSTEMS, and numerous federal and state agencies. EXELTECH’s footprint can be found, quite literally, around the world. We also provide back up power for the communications room in every U.S. Embassy, worldwide.
