REO30: The past, present and future of power

As Aristotle once said, “Not only do we measure change by time, but time by change, because they are defined by one another.”

It’s safe to say that we’ve seen a real electronic evolution during REO’s 30 years as a company, and it doesn’t show any sign of slowing down. Both in our day-to-day lives as consumers and within industry, technologies have changed significantly during this period. We’ve seen this with the rise of electric vehicles (EVs), surgical robots and industrial automation, to name just a few developments.

Meanwhile, the need for electronic components is growing exponentially. It’s estimated that, by 2020, there will be more than 30 billion Internet of Things (IoT) devices in use around the world. As more businesses rely on a constant power supply, it will be of prime importance that power to these devices is stable and reliable.

Power quality is pivotal to the efficiency of equipment. So is understanding the problems that cause electrical issues, like disruptive noise and harmonics from power supplies that may interfere with sensitive devices, or even cause failures.
When REO UK was founded three decades ago, our purpose was to address these electrical power control and power quality problems.

Now, as we approach our landmark 30th birthday, REO UK wants to reflect on the key changes our industry has seen. That’s why, in Autumn, we are launching a new e-book, REO30: The past, present and future of power.

The book explores how, by understanding past technological advancements, engineers can better address the problems of the future. It focusses in-depth on such areas as factory automation, renewable technologies, electrified transport and the medtech industry.

With the REO30 book, we can share our power quality expertise with you like never before, based on three decades in the electrical industry. Seeing how far we’ve come — and the continuing electronic evolution — makes us even more excited to see what changes the next 30 years, and beyond, have in store!
