Mike Davies to design Power Switching Circuits for UKAEA
UKAEA at Culham Laboratories has given Mike Davies Electronics the contract to design
Power Control & Switching units for currents up to 1500 Amps. Using solid state IGBT
switch modules, one unit will maintain constant current, whilst the other will generate
current pulses of a few milliseconds duration. Mike is working closely on this project
with M & D Electronics, who will be assembling and cabling the units. M & D is a
local subcontract assembly company, which has done a lot of work for Culham, Rutherford
& Harwell Laboratories.
Mike Davies Electronics to design new Water Flow meter
Nixon Flowmeters, a leading manufacturer of liquid flow monitoring and control equipment,
has chosen Mike Davies Electronics to design a new microprocessor based water flow
meter for their high sensitivity probes. The microprocessor will enable the measurements
to be converted from pulses per seconds (as on previous instruments) to be displayed
directly as flow rate. Mike Davies Electronics has also been arranging the manufacture
of production units for Nixon Flowmeters.
Laser scanner designed by Mike Davies Electronics
ES Technology of Kingston Bagpuize in Oxfordshire, a leading manufacturer of Laser
Engraving & Etching equipment, has chosen Mike Davies Electronics to design the circuits
for their latest unit to drive their galvonometric motors for the beam scanning mirrors.
This will enable them to manufacture their own unit in the UK, and give faster servicing
time as repairs can be done 'in-house'.

Penlon turns to Mike Davies Electronics for Heater Control design
Penlon Ltd, manufacturers of Patient Ventilators asked Mike Davies to design & build
heater control circuits for their ventilators, to avoid moisture building up inside
them. Mike Davies has also arranged the production of the units, and individually
tested all units supplied.
Meta turn to Mike Davies to miniaturise new camera design.
Meta Vision Systems Ltd is a leading manufacturer of laser vision systems for welding
applications worldwide. When they wanted to squeeze all the external electronics
to inside their latest camera unit, they came to Mike Davies to do it.
The circuit comprises a microprocessor, 2 DC-DC converters and interface circuits
which Mike squeezed onto 3 sections of printed circuit connected by flexible sections
of the printed circuit. The completed board is then folded around the inside of the
case to fit onto the camera and external connectors.
