In 3D printing, you make three-dimen- sional solid objects from a digital file.It’s time-intensive and requires precision, according to NXT Power Directorof Engineering Cherian Jose.
“Placement of materials for 3D production value requires tight accuracyand exactness, and any power disturbances like spikes, noise, transients orpower failure of any kind can result indiminished yield or, even worse, scraping of materials and parts,” he explains.
“Costly production delays, labor, and
material losses, as well as missed dead-
lines, then create even bigger problems for both
the production house and their customer.”
The NXT Power Design Team came up with a
solution. With its DSP-controlled inverter, the In-
tegrity Max provides constant voltage and fre-
quency to the load, no matter how poor the in-
coming power quality is. “The DSP controlled
double-conversion inverter takes the incoming
poor-quality AC power, converts it to DC and
then regenerates it into a high-quality low dis-
tortion AC sinewave,” describes Jose. “And, if
we stopped our design process at this point, this
product would match most existing UPS systems.
However, we went steps further to engi-
neer this true online double conversion
The NXT Power Integrity Max UPS was
designed to pass the regenerated AC
Additional benefits of the Integrity Max design
include the use of a 2-pole mechanical relay to ful-
ly isolate the input terminals from potentially haz-
ardous back feed voltage from the inverter while
operating in backup mode. This ultimately pro-
tects equipment and personnel from any electrical
shock. Also, all units have fully customizable power
distribution panels to accommodate most applica-

The Pro Retail, which meets Safety Standards UL1778, isdesigned to incorporate itself seamlessly into POS environments. It’s the solution we designed to provide clean, conditioned, and uninterrupted power for any POS terminal. Wesee this as ‘peace of mind’ protection for operators to avoidproblems due to common-mode voltage, power outages,spikes, and transients.
NED: What is the difference between the Integrity
Pro series products and others currently on the
CJ: A couple of differences: First, the LED display and lowimpedance isolation transformer already discussed. Secondly, a 24V DC output with battery backup helps eliminatepower adapters which simplify installation and saves the usermoney. And finally, the power quality performance of the Integrity Pro UPS puts it in a league of its own.
As our time together draws to a close, Jose takes a momentto reflect on how his earliest childhood memories set thecourse for his future engineering career as a power protection design specialist. “I’ve developed an understanding ofthe importance of pure, sustainable, reliable power for customers in all areas of commerce and industry. As a result,I’m always seeking to improve what’s been to create whatcan be.”
