'E-Zone' Tracks Power-Supply Design, Production Steps In Real Time

Compiled By Traci Purdum Universal Voltronics, a Brookfield, Conn.-based high-voltage manufacturer, is helping its clients simplify product development via a secure Web site that permits clients to view power-supply design and production status and steps in real time. Called "E-Zone," the technology ensures collaboration between X-ray and electron beam and laser system engineers and their power-supply vendor. It allows clients to review engineering files, product development schedules, manual and production status, even save spreadsheets and planning files to their own computer terminals. "Aerospace vendors, automotive parts makers, and even shipping companies now use the Web to keep their clients up to date on product manufacturing and transport status," says Leonard W. Braverman, president and CEO of Universal Voltronics. "Our secure E-Zone extends that principle into the commercial electronics field . . . It's part of the collaborative process we call co-linear engineering -- working with our clients from an early stage to ensure a better power supply at a better price, delivered on time."
