Drammen, Norway, and Munich, Germany – 5 October 2017 – The quest for improved power conversion efficiency and reduction of energy losses is always on. In close co-operation with Infineon Technologies AG (FSE: IFX / OTCQX: IFNNY), Eltek engineers have again cracked the code, reducing losses by 50 percent while further improving reliability and total cost of ownership.
Eltek is today announcing the launch of the Flatpack2 SHE, a new Super High Efficient power conversion module in the Flatpack2 family. After the revolution Eltek started with the HE technology, there has been a decade with smaller incremental improvements.
To make a significant change in conversion efficiency, reliability and total cost of ownership, Eltek saw the need to bring in new technology. The choice fell on the CoolGaN™ from Infineon; the close co-operation with Infineon throughout the development, verification and industrialization process is unique in the company’s history.
“Reaching the 98 percent efficiency target, while improving an already industry leading field performance in a competitive way, will be appreciated by especially our telecom and data center customers,” said Morten Schoyen, Chief Marketing Officer at Eltek. “With our customers in focus we have also ensured backward compatibility to all 3 kW Flatpack2 versions. In other words, efficiency upgrades have never been simpler as the older modules can just be replaced,” added Mr. Schoyen.
The Flatpack 2 SHE will have a substantial impact on carbon footprint, consumed energy and ultimately the operational expense for Eltek customers.
