UPE, Inc. was founded in 1990 to serve the power electronics industry with world class components. We have maintained our focus on providing the necessary solution oriented technical support to engineers and buyers alike.
We offer a unique knowledge base and experience in application support related to two primary product categories. They are capacitors and resistors for power applications. All of which are manufactured at facilities certified to meet the quality standards of ISO9001:2008. Additional certifications include RoHS, UL, CSE, CSA, IEC and MIL spec.
Electronicon manufactures 100% of their capacitors and their metalized polypropylene in one of their 3 modern manufacturing facilities. All of them are located in the town of Gera, Germany. Operating in this town since their founding in 1938, Electronicon has established themselves as a leading global supplier of polypropylene capacitors. As of early 2015, Electronicon employs approximately 530 people and metalizes an average of 23 tons of polypropylene film per week.
All of our resistors are manufactured in one factory located in Giaveno, Italy. Operating since 1970, this factory has been producing high quality power resistors using the latest technology. Focused on wirewound and thick film technologies, we can support your prototype and volume production requirements from 2 watts to 500 watts with a tolerance as low as 0.5%. We also offer non-inductive designs and a variety of terminations and extended creapage options. All resistors are compliant with RoHS, MIL and CECC and the quality system is certified to ISO9001: 2008.
