Richardson RFPD signs with Radius Power


Richardson RFPD Inc., LaFox IL, has completed an agreement with Radius Power Inc. to distribute EMI power line filters.

Radius Power provides a broad selection of EMI/EMC power line filters, including standardized and custom solutions that help meet international compliance standards and improve the immunity and safety of electrical and electronic equipment.

“Radius Power’s unique ability to turn nonstandard products in a couple of weeks, rather than months, will be a tremendous benefit to our global energy and power customers,” says Dave Rossdeutcher, director, global marketing – energy, power and interconnect, for Richardson RFPD. “In addition, the company’s safety-approved lab for compliance certifications and investment in in-house, pre-compliance EMI testing helps to greatly reduce time-to-market for our customers’ systems.”

“We identified Richardson RFPD as a key global channel to driving demand creation for our products,” adds Ken Ogden, engineering/technical sales for Radius Power. “Their knowledge of the key energy and power applications and history of providing design support to a targeted customer base will enable us to penetrate areas where we have not yet been successful and allow us to gain market share over our competition.”

Richardson RFPD will also globally distribute products from Maxtena Inc., developer and producer for wireless solutions, including GNSS, Iridium, Inmarsat and Thuraya satellites, and terrestrial M2M, MSS and LTE applications.

Richardson RFPD will distribute Maxtena’s line of reliable, rugged and compact helix antennas, microstrip antennas and combo antennas, and will also support customers with custom wireless solutions ranging from smart metering to 4G LTE. Maxtena’s products are ideally suited for portable wireless applications including satellite phones, communications gear, handheld navigation, asset tracking, UAVs, recreational devices and industrial equipment.
