Eltek Hits High Efficiency Milestone: Ships One Million HE DC Power Modules
PLANO, TEXAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Eltek, the world leader in high efficiency power systems for telecommunications, industrial applications and renewable energy projects, today announced that it has shipped more than one million of its flagship Flatpack2 high efficiency (HE) rectifiers, reinforcing its market leadership in this energy saving technology.
These modules set the industry standard for AC-DC power conversion efficiency at 96 percent. With one million in the field replacing less efficient rectifiers, they have made a positive impact on the global environment in a number of ways, including: reducing wasted electricity by 1.246 terawatt hours (TWh), cutting CO2 emissions by 894,734 tons and saving $149 million in operating expenses.
This higher efficiency, according to calculations based on data from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), is equivalent to removing 186,403 cars from the road for a year and also equates to the power used by 101,726 homes in one year.
“Offering our global customers an environmentally friendly DC power solution that eliminates wasted energy, while still being a sound investment, has been a top priority at Eltek,” said Morten Schoyen, Eltek chief marketing officer. “This milestone is an achievement to be celebrated, as it means that increasing numbers of customers are reaping the added benefits of cost savings, high reliability and robust product performance.”
Flatpack2 HE rectifiers provide high power density in a variety of applications, voltages and power ratings. They are available from Eltek’s worldwide sales force.
