CE+T Power Launches the “Most Efficient Technology”

February 24, 2016 by Jeff Shepard

CE+T Power today announced the launch of its Enhanced Conversion Innovation (ECI) technology, claimed to be the most efficient technology of its kind. ECI provides three high-efficiency energy converters and an energy buffer in a single module to provide polyvalent power conversion for critical systems at up to 96% for ac-dc and 94% for dc-ac and ac-dc efficiency. It also can be used for any power conversion scenario and will also allow for bi-directional use.

“We have studied the history of this sort of technology and analyzed what we think the future of power conversion will be. From this, we have created a technology that is more advanced than any other product available,” said Olivier Bomboir, VP Product Management & Business Development at CE+T Power.

ECI leverages CE+T’s Twine Sine Innovation (TSI) technology, an ac backup technology that combines all power conversion possibilities with a storage capability. Features of ECI include double conversion ac-ac, bi-directional dc-dc, hybrid system dc and ac load, and an ac-input power factor greater than 0.99.

“At 94%, ECI has the most efficient dc-ac conversion currently on the market,” said Mr Bomboir. “We are also working a phase 2 of the technology that will have multiple conversion possibilities and allow for the set-up of each conversion stage to work in one or two directions depending on the final usage of the product in which it will be integrated.”

ECI’s high efficiency modes can also help lower customer’s TCO and allows them to invest in more data and not more power thanks to its power density, diminished upstream circuit sizing, diminished cooling infrastructure sizing, ease of installation and large panel of solutions.

“The product is very user friendly and gives the user peace of mind as there is no single point of failure thanks to its true redundant, hot swap self-containment,” said Mr Bomboir. “We are excited for our customers to experience its unique capabilities and are looking forward to hearing feedback.”
