Energy & Drives

Let us develop your product! From the moment your idea is born all the way to production!

As a development service provider, we design your turnkey converter, drive and energy storage systems and develop complete devices including all electronic components, the firmware and the appropriate housing. Our stable and mature development processes enable the highest quality and punctual delivery of your development results.

Engineering Services

Development activities

  • Development of efficient and highly robust system solutions in power engineering and functionally safe drive technology
  • Specification, design, development and qualification of electrical energy storage modules and uninterruptible power supplies (UPS)
  • Design of electrical drive systems and optimisation of control structures based on simulations with MATLAB® and Simulink®
  • Development and design of power electronics up to 500 kW 
  • Development, verification and qualification of the performance and the safety functions in the in-house laboratory (continuous tests (24h/7d) under defined environmental conditions possible)
  • Accompaniment of product certification

Series production and the product life cycle

  • Once development has been completed, we expertly adjust your production - or that of an EMS - and support your product throughout its entire life cycle.
  • We take the pressure off your team by providing competent support for your successful brand-name products.
  • In the event of component discontinuations, we will help you revise your systems and products.
