Widespread use of electricity is recognized as a cause leading to the Second Industrial Revolution. At the same time, the battle between Nikola Tesla and Thomas Edison—inventors who designed the alternating current (AC) and direct current (DC) systems, respectively—remains a popular topic today. After AC has dominated our life for a few centuries, centralized DC power supply is likely to again move into the spotlight due to technological advances, dramatic changes in electricity use, and skyrocketing demand for energy storage.
As a leading provider of standard power supply solutions, MEAN WELL not only invests substantial resources in research and product development every year but has never stopped planning for the future. That is why MEAN WELL became the first to launch integrated DC power supply products for LED lighting.
