Engineering

In House Arc Fault Research
Since its inception in 1996, X-L Synergy has maintained an active research program in arc fault management. In the late 1990's this led to the Company's first commercial products, the Faultless Plug® and the OnSentryTM line of appliance outlets, both offering arc fault protection for 60 Hz commercial systems.

In 2002, the Company began the extension of this technology to 400 Hz systems and in 2004, the Company began researching arc management for 270 VDC systems under Air Force sponsorship. Work on MOSFET control for arc fault management is described in the article Arc Fault Management Using Solid State Switching.

Success with 270 volt DC systems led to a new and robust means for arc fault detection for AC systems, as described in the article Arc Fault Detection Through Model Reference Estimation. This led the Company to design its first custom integrated circuit, implementing arc fault detection in 60 Hz AC systems using a time and frequency domain technique.

X-L Synergy maintains an experienced staff of engineering professionals who are available for short term consultation as well as long term project development. X-L Synergy maintains a complete suite of hardware and software prototyping tools and can squire a project from concept to production.

For more intensive R&D efforts or efforts requiring specialized equipment, X-L Synergy can draw upon its close ties to the University of Texas at El Paso. X-L Synergy has sponsored multiple projects at UTEP and continues to employee UTEP students and faculty as co-op engineers and consultants.

X-L Synergy offers Computer/Systems Engineering solutions for Federal, State and Local customers under GSA listing GS-35F-0559R.
