Category:Uncategorised

SamacSys has been chosen as the provider of professional CAD Models for Traco Power. In an effort to improve their customers’ experience, SamacSys will create and provide interactive CAD Models for inclusion on the Traco Power website.

Traco Power has been the leading manufacturer of DC/DC converters and AC/DC switching power supplies since 1944. They have proven time and time again that they provide the most reliable power conversion products specific to their customer needs and their dedication to quality and reliability makes their choice to partner with us even more significant. 

Their latest move to enhance the customer experience on their website saw a technical evaluation of all available CAD Model providers in the industry. Traco wanted an easy-to-use 3D product model feature on their website to not only show a 3D render of the component, but also a 2D scalable footprint, and the PCB symbol.

This tool is integrated on the component page and is free to use. See it here.

About Hubl:

The Hubl Team finds it deeply disturbing that the resource we use the most, we understand the least. Hubl’s mission is to push the current 100+ year-old method of delivering electricity into the 21st century. We seek to build the next generation of standardized, affordable, automated energy delivery systems. Driving prices down is our strategy for helping make homes, offices, and factories more efficient– saving families, small businesses, and even Fortune 500 enterprises money on their electricity bill. We seek to generate the needed paradigm shift in the regulation, automation, and distribution of energy and its analysis by leveraging the power of machine learning to form a seamless and convenient relationship between mankind and the power that we use everyday. We seek to provide commercial, industrial, and corporate administrators with insight and control over their energy usage and building analytics in an obvious, unified, and valuable way. Most importantly, we intend to make our technology as accessible and affordable as possible. Sustainability and efficiency must no longer be allowed to live only in the realm of expensive, premium products. Hubl seeks to be that solution.
