30 years smarter, a timeline of change 02/12/2019

REO infographic

~ New REO infographic maps the electronic evolution from 1989-2019 ~

For its 30th anniversary, we have produced a new infographic reflecting key changes in the electronic and electrical engineering sectors over the last 30 years. The infographic charts significant developments in a continuing electronic evolution that’s seen the rise of the Internet of Things (IoT), surgical robots, electric vehicles (EVs) and more.

Power quality engineering book | future engineering report

REO UK turned 30 in 2019, celebrating three decades helping industrial businesses to achieve greater power quality through excellence in design and electrical engineering.

To commemorate this anniversary, REO UK has released a power quality engineering ebook exploring the industrial trends that have reshaped engineering in the past 30 years and serving as a future of engineering report to outline the road ahead.

What challenges are ahead for electrical engineering?
What challenges are ahead for electrical engineering? 08/10/2019


In the past 30 years, we’ve seen more industry sectors adopt electrification. However, the abundance of devices in use today leads to electrical grids with widespread power quality problems and electrical issues. As new technologies such as electric vehicles and surgical robots take over the market, the challenges will only continue to mount. Here, Steve Hughes, managing director of power quality specialist REO UK, outlines some of the biggest challenges electrical engineers will face in the coming years.

REO develops compact braking resistor with 3500 W power 21/08/2019

~ Specialist brings high power to small resistor ~

REO UK has brought high power brake resistors into the 21st century with its new REOHM series 155 braking resistors for industrial control cabinets. The product can deliver up to 3500 W of continuous power to drives with medium- and high-power frequency converters, with isolation voltages to 4.4 kV, in a compact design that helps the product overcome the common problems with electrical braking resistors.

The EV overload 16/07/2019

The rise of the electric vehicle, or EV, is inevitable. Over the past decade, many car manufacturers, including BMW, Audi and of course Tesla, have blown the lid off this new technology. As EV battery capacity and motor efficiency continue to increase, the ability to charge the batteries within a reasonable timeframe is of the utmost importance. Steve Hughes, managing director, runs us through the problem.

The key to clean and consistent power 19/06/2019

It’s not an exaggeration to suggest an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) can sometimes be the difference between life and death. Hospital operating theatres, A&E departments and emergency services all require clean and consistent power, which a UPS can help provide. Here, Steve Hughes, managing director of REO UK, explores the importance of UPS systems in the medical sector. 

Aluminium-clad brake resistor passes environmental testing to EN standards 23/05/2019

~ Braking resistor shows enduring excellence ~

A robust electrical braking resistor designed to improve the safety and longevity of electronic components in electric vehicles (EVs) has passed environmental testing and proven its quality to EN certification. A special version of the standard BW165 aluminium-clad braking resistor, manufactured by electrical power quality specialist REO UK, endured shock, vibration and salt mist environmental testing to prove its design and performance in challenging environments.


Quarantining poor power quality 16/04/2019

~ The role of electrical isolation and galvanic separation in healthcare ~

If a hospital patient was suffering with a contagious virus, chances are they would be separated from other vulnerable patients to minimise the risk of the illness spreading. This idea of separation is equally important for design engineers working on the latest medical technology (MedTech) to mitigate electrical problems. Here, Steve Hughes, managing director of medical power supply specialist REO UK, explains why.
