Technical Service & Support
In late 2011, Richardson Electronics acquired Powerlink, a UK-based technical services company with locations in London and Dubai. Powerlink provides service for traveling wave tube (TWT) amplifiers and related equipment for the Satellite Communications market throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
Powerlink has been in business since 1994 providing front-line field service and repair at base for satellite communication equipment and systems both in the UK and abroad. The extensive customer base includes many internationally recognised companies and institutions.
Powerlink is ISO 9001:2015 approved operating from a fully equipped service facility in the UK. Particular areas of expertise include high power amplifiers, SSPAs, frequency converters, RF and microwave systems, instrumentation amplifiers, high voltage power supplies and associated RF equipment. Powerlink is the European service agent for Xicom Technology and MCL.
Through Powerlink, our goal is to provide cost-effective installation and service of microwave tubes to communications, industrial, military and medical users around the world. The acquisition of Powerlink also enables Richardson to provide technical assistance to power grid tube customers that may not have the ability to service their own equipment today.
