CH Precision’s engineers strive to develop new circuit topologies and get better performances by constantly looking further than what has already been achieved.

The modular approach used throughout all the products enables many system configurations to be realized using the same piece of equipment. Moreover, the slots provided at the back of the units can receive optional boards. This not only allows a unit to be tailored to a customer’s system requirements, but CH Precision can also develop new boards in the event of a new digital standard becoming the de facto standard, all in all making CH products future-proof. Customers can enjoy their product for a longer period of time, ultimately reducing waste and therefore helping the environment. Every CH product consumes less than 1 Watt in Standby, complying with the latest environmental regulations.
