Requirements to Consider When Selecting a Power Supply Partner

When choosing a military-grade power supply partner, you want to take great care to make sure your partner is compliant with all military power supply regulations. These are military standards (MIL-STD) set by the Department of Defense to make sure products, including power supplies, meet key requirements, are reliable, compatible with other systems, and are able to be commonly used across defense applications. They are also extremely useful for determining the quality of commercial-use power supply products.

Important standards to watch for include:

  • Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) standards — Covered under MIL-STD-461F in the United States and DEF STAN 59-41 & 59-411 in the U.K.
  • Long product lifecycle — Including end-of-life (EOL) management
  • Full design verification testing (DVT)
  • Reliability — As determined by conservative component de-rating
  • Thermal and overvoltage/overcurrent protection
  • Operating temperature — Product should function properly under conditions as cold as -40 degrees Celsius and as hot as 70 degrees Celsius
  • Durable, rugged build
  • Reliable input conditions — Power supplies should meet the electrical interface standards as covered under MIL-STD-1275, MIL-STD-704, MIL-STD-1399, and DEF STAN 61-5
  • Redundant and parallel operation
  • Convection/conduction cooling
