Sixty years have passed since the company once known as Advanced Component Design Corporation came into being. For simplicity, they changed their name to ACDC electronics in 1951, and were acquired by Emerson Electric Corporation in 1974. The division is now Emerson Network Power. From the very beginning, ACDC had been aggressively involved in the design technology and manufacture of switching and linear power supply components and systems.
They were at one time a plant of 180,000 ft². The primary manufacturing and division headquarters was located in Oceanside, California. Secondary operations were conducted in modern facilities in Tijuana, Mexico. ACDC used high-volume production methods that are were based on "product – line – philosophy." That means that when a new product lines was introduced, assembly techniques and test stations is unique to that product order were developed and implemented on an assembly line dedicated solely to the manufacturing that single product. The net result for this method paid off in the end product of consistent quality and lower cost. ACDC Electronics was the manufacture of the EL 750D electronic load which was used in many power supply manufacturing companies and test facilities. The rack assembly division produces the custom RPS systems.
None of the ACDC Electronic switching power supplies are currently being manufactured. With the large base of users their products are many times uniquely designed to the equipment they are used in. In most cases they can be serviced and/or refurbished at Siress Enterprises.
