PCIM Europe 2019 with ProtonElectrotex

May 20, 2019 by Proton-Electrotex

Proton-Electrotex has presented single-component diode and thyristor modules with a 50-mm wide baseplate (type B0) at PCIM Europe 2019.

Proton-Electrotex took part in the international exhibition PCIM Europe 2019!

To stay relevant on the modern fast-paced market, it is essential for every company to monitor the latest trends and offer its customers competitive products and technologies. To achieve it, we participate in the most significant global events. This time Proton-Electrotex took part in the main annual event of the power electronics industry – PCIM Europe 2019.

Year after year this event remains a great opportunity to get in touch with technicians, designers, partners and buyers operating in the electronics industry.

In 2019 PCIM Europe once again surpassed the market’s high expectations.

Proton-Electrotex takes part in this event for 20 years and traditionally presents its latest research and new products there. Besides, we showcase samples of existing portfolio already known to our customers.

This time Proton-Electrotex has presented single-component diode and thyristor modules with a 50-mm wide baseplate (type B0).

About Proton-Electrotex

Proton-Electrotex is one of the Russian leaders in the design and manufacture of power semiconductor diodes, thyristors, modules, coolers, IGBTs (IGBTs), as well as power units for use in various electric energy converters. The company was founded and began production in 1996 on the leased premises of the Proton plant. Since then, Proton-Electrotex has developed its own infrastructure for the entire production cycle. Production is equipped with modern production lines, measuring equipment of our own production and areas for “clean technologies” with full compliance with the requirements for electronic products and microelectronics.
