A leading supplier of innovative gaming technologies to the largest and the most sophisticated casinos and entertainment venues around the world was encountering stiff challenges in containing the electromagnetic interference (EMI) coming from the power supply plugged to one of its next-generation electronic slot machines. Not wanting to compromise on quality, the gaming and entertainment technology provider approached Artesyn, a global leader in designing and manufacturing highly-reliable power conversion units.

Thanks to Artesyn's customized solutions and pre-sales technical support, the company quickly tested and approved the LCM600 Series to replace its existing power supply unit.
