Now in the third generation of family ownership E Preston Electrical continues to grow and build on traditional values.

“We work hard for our customers to get the best products at the best prices while providing exceptional customer service.  We always do what we say we will, even if that is just a call back,” says Mark Preston, MD.

This is a principle that was rooted in the business from its inception over 30 years ago by founder, and grandfather to the current directors, Ernest Preston.

Although there is still a great emphasis on these traditional values the company has embraced new technology in all of its business operations and now launches a new digital venture.  The new interactive e-shop eprestononline.co.uk is aimed at increasing accessibility to existing and new customers.

“We have access to the latest technology from our suppliers,” says Matthew Preston, sales director. “We want to make dealing with E Preston as easy as possible.  We will continue to visit new and existing customers, and speak to them on the telephone, but with eprestononline we can offer them access to our company whenever they want.”

Click AwayThe new eShop will allow customers to log in to their own portal to view orders, print off documents such as acknowledgements and invoices, and allows them to place repeat orders.  Data sheets and supplier catalogues will also be readily available.

The company believes it maintains its position as a traditional company – or more appropriately, a modern company with traditional values.

Schaffner FN9262 & FN9266, High-Performance IEC C14 PEM with Fuse Holder or Switch

Schaffner 225_31.jpg

High-Performance Filter Series FN 9262 (with fuse holder) and FN 9266 (with dual pole switch)

The high-performance filter series FN 9262 (with fuse holder) and FN 9266 (with dual pole switch), are developed for applications demanding high attenuation performance. These represent an enhanced version of the already market proven FN 9260 and FN 9264 filter families. One of the key applications for this filter is the medical market; the filter carries additional approvals, making it easier for the end user to implement into their design. FN 9262 B and FN 9266 B (B-types) filters meet the insulation requirements according to IEC 60601-1 1MOPP (1 means of patient protection).

Both filter series outperform the already existing filters FN 9260 and FN 9264 over the whole frequency range. This increased performance lies in two key components: the advanced core material (common mode performance) and the increased X-capacitor values (differential mode performance).

The housing dimensions are identical to the existing series making an exchange between the filters easy. In addition, the PEMs (Power Entry Modules) are mechanically compatible with almost all similar style products in the market and the same as in FN 9260 and FN 9264.

With the new variant diversity (FN 9260/2/4/6) and the present attenuation properties, this filter family offers a solution for medical devices, modern appliances for household, audio and video. They can also be used in several other applications with similar requirements.

The filters have all the required safety approvals (UL 60939-3, CSA C22.2 No. 8, IEC 60939-3 and CQC), they carry a CE mark and are compatible with the RoHS II (2015/863) directive.
