Amantys sets up worldwide sales push
Amantys has made a significant move in the buoyant German market in the same month it opened operations in China.
Now the Cambridge UK power electronics company says it is set to push into other key Asian and European territories in quickfire order.
The company has tied up with GvA Leistungselektronik GmbH. The distributor, developer and manufacturer of custom specific power electronics is adding the Amantys Power Drive family of gate drives to its innovative product portfolio for customers in Germany.
With Amantys Power Insight, these products will receive IGBT performance data in real-time, allowing system engineers to monitor and log operating conditions, make long-term measurements or control modules remotely.
The distribution agreement follows the announcement of the opening of Amantys’ sales office in China earlier this month, with further distribution agreements in Korea, India, Spain, Russia and Turkey expected to follow in the near future.
The Amantys Power Drive plug & play family of drivers offer improved creepage and clearance and isolation over alternative products in the market, with each drive configurable to operate different IGBT Modules. This greatly simplifies the purchasing and logistics process in inverter designs for applications such as wind turbines, solar farm grid ties, and medium voltage motor drives.
Amantys’ innovative approach to power electronics attracted the attention of GvA CEO, Werner Bresch, who said: “With Amantys Power Insight we can receive real-time data about the performance of the system and initiate specific preventive actions if necessary, even when the system is remote and relatively inaccessible, such as in an offshore wind turbine. This makes remote diagnosis and maintenance planning more cost efficient and far easier to manage.”
Karen Oddey, Amantys CEO said that building closer partnerships with the regional power electronics industry in Europe was a critical part of the long term strategy. “This agreement brings us another step closer to achieving our goals for this year,” she said.
Established in Cambridge in 2010, Amantys specialises in the delivery of scalable, cost effective solutions to meet the challenges of designing reliable and efficient power conversion in medium and high voltage applications.
