David Seabury reviews a record 2016

Following record-breaking exports during our 90th Anniversary year, 2016 was again an incredibly busy period for MPE. Entering the year, MPE had already secured a very significant high-current HEMP filter order, for supply to a European defence application across the second half of the year. This was the largest HEMP protection project within Europe last year, and the fact that MPE was selected by the client is again testament to our World leader status within the HEMP arena.

MPE Technology

Why compromise when you can customise?

Customisation spans the full breadth of MPE’s product portfolio. Examples range from custom ceramic filters manufactured for the Eurofighter aircraft, custom feedthroughs produced for SPARK mine clearance rollers, and numerous custom equipment filters supplied to almost every NATO vehicle manufactured over the last 25 years – through to TEMPEST filters manufactured for the new Queen Elizabeth class aircraft carriers and, very recently, specialised filter designs supplied to the US Air Force for their high-profile Space Fence program.

Ultra-low-leakage filters – a seachange for marine applications

MPE has developed and released a range of ultra-low-leakage powerline filters having no neutral line, designed specifically for naval “floating earth” applications. During late 2016 MPE updated and expanded this range in response to market demand. MPE’s ultra-low-leakage filter range now include models from 10A through to 230A, providing high levels of attenuation from 100kHz right up to 18GHz – and with extremely low line-to-earth leakage properties from 6mA to 8mA.

Breaking the US code with Technical Sales Solutions (TSS)

MPE has a history with Technical Sales Solutions (TSS) spanning ten years and, more recently, over the past five years, MPE and TSS have focussed their combined efforts on the US defense sector and the HEMP threat and requirements within that area. MPE’s year-on-year sales into the USA have grown, and with an effective strategy and focussed efforts, sales have grown significantly in the last two years. This substantial rise saw the USA become MPE’s single biggest export territory last year and culminated in TSS being honoured with MPE’s Top Distributor award for 2016.

Turning up the power at Horiba MIRA

MPE has a working relationship dating back over 15 years with MIRA EMC Engineering based at Nuneaton, Warwickshire, UK. More recently in 2015, MIRA engaged with MPE for adapting and upgrading of one of its existing anechoic vehicle test chambers, in order to meet the increased demand for testing electric vehicles and their components. For MPE, the chamber upgrade presented both AC and DC filtering requirements, with the DC demand being high current and high voltage.
