Advanced Energy (AE) has devoted more than three decades to perfecting power – enabling design breakthroughs and driving growth for its customers. The company’s precision power and control technologies, combined with its application know-how, inspire close partnerships and innovation.

Founded in 1981, AE has built a diversified and global business delivering those advanced power and control technologies to customers across a broad range of industries (including aerospace and automotive). The AE team, deployed throughout North America, Europe and Asia, is dedicated to providing technical expertise and responsive and agile power solutions for industrial manufacturing.

AE products provide leading, field-proven power control and arc-management capabilities that enable complex semiconductor processes and other high-technology applications. Its high-voltage power systems serve high-tech and industrial applications from medical equipment and scientific analysis to intense pulsed light and mass spectrometry.

The Fort Collins, Colo.-based company’s thermal products offer precision temperature measurement and control, while its power control modules provide exceptional quality for heating, melting, bending, forming or drying in a wide variety of industrial applications.

There are two products in particular that are vital to AE’s success.

  • Optical pyrometers: The Onyx noncontact optical pyrometer series meets the most demanding accuracy and repeatability requirements over a broad temperature range. The versatile series is ideally suited for a wide variety of industrial materials – such as steel, nonferrous metals, graphite, silicon carbon (SiC), carbon fiber and ceramics – during critical thermal processing.
  • SCR power controllers: Thyro family SCR power controllers regulate temperature with exacting precision, controlling the flow of electricity from the grid to a heater. This product family’s precision and reliability is proven for any industrial manufacturing process requiring exacting material melting, heating or forming.


AE also offers comprehensive repair, enhancement and used equipment programs for the complete life cycle of the products it supplies.

This MTI Associate Member made a significant transaction in July 2017 when it acquired Excelsys Technologies, a leading power-supply manufacturer and designer of high-efficiency, low-profile power supplies for specialist markets including industrial, medical, communications and military. The Cork, Ireland-based company’s products include AC/DC modular power supplies, single output power supplies and custom power supplies.

Excelsys is also creating a new standard in customer service through the application of principles of excellence in channel partnership, product quality, manufacturing efficiency and the innovative use of new technology.
