  AUSTIN, TX, Feb 25 (MARKET WIRE) -- 
 AMREL/AMERICAN RELIANCE introduces another customer driven power solution at
APEC 2008, the "K" family of switch mode power supplies.

    The profound effects of the digital age have impacted AMREL and the test &
measurement industry.  Users are demanding better, faster, smaller and
easier-to-use products. We see this from multi-GHz oscilloscopes to compacted
hi-wattage power supplies.  This new user mindset is an extension of what we
have come to expect in the technology-driven consumer market. Examples of new
simplicity and convenience are found in the Apple iPod and iPhone.

    AMREL responds to the industrial markets' demand for similar simplicity
andconvenience with the release of the "K" Family of Switch Mode Power Supplies.
By manufacturing a family of keypad & encoder controlled switching power
for the industrial test & measurement market, AMREL takes industrial users to
digital age.  Power Supplies have evolved from bulky Linears to compact and
efficient Switchers; from analog pots to digital calibration and digital

    Importantly, the convenient and simplistic operation of a
keypad-controlledpower supply has arrived.  In AMREL's tradition of delivering
customer-driven and user-friendly products, AMREL introduces the "K" (Keypad
+ Encoder) Family of Switching Power Supplies -- the 1U Dual Channel SPD-K
(360W/Ch) the 1U SPS-K (1.2kW/1.5kW), and the bigger brother, the
SPS-K/HPS-K (3.3kW ~ 100's kW).

    AMREL's New "K" Family of Switchers provides precise programming of
voltage& current set points via quick key strokes, simple control of
Over-voltage/Over-current protection parameters, access to full control menu
options and a 20-point Voltage/Current Auto-sequencing Function (VLIST/ILIST). 
These are all controlled without the hassles of turning pots/encoders, viewing
complex menu navigations or pressing preview keys. Additionally, all the
important parameters are readily displayed in 16-bit via a VFD (Vacuum
Florescent Display), equivalent to a 3 1/2 digit DMM.  As the pioneers of
Ethernet-based ePower and eLoad product lines, AMREL continues to provide
flexible, co-resident Ethernet/GPIB/RS-232/RS485 interfaces for powerful
programmatic control.  In
short, the 12-button keypad and digital encoder, convenience of an integrated
display, along with Closed-case Calibration, embedded co-resident
Ethernet/GPIB/RS-232/RS-485 Programmatic Interfaces, wide selection of
voltage/current/power ranges and AMREL's unwavering pledge to Customer
Satisfaction and Service makes AMREL "K" family the product of choice.
