Amantys has appointed Mannheim-based 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 product portfolio for customers in Germany.
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 insulated-gate bipolar transistor (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.
This innovative approach to power electronics attracted the attention of GvA CEO Werner Bresch: “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.”
