Some of the more recent TDK-Lambda product introductions made by RS include:

•    The QS series of single-output AC-DC units, which are certified to medical and industrial safety standards.

•    The CUS1500M series of 1500W high-power AC-DC units, which target use in medical and scientific equipment that requires low audible noise for both patient and operator comfort.

“We have been highly impressed with RS and are delighted with the extensive selection of our products now offered from stock,” said Lyonel Eveno, Director of Distribution for Europe at TDK-Lambda. “They are fully deserving of this award and we look forward to a growing and increasingly fruitful partnership with them.”
