Amantys seals partnership for the US market with AmePower to promote Amantys Power Drives

AmePower will expand its sales portfolio of high-power electronics products, adding IGBT driver range of products from Amantys

CAMBRIDGE, UK and MIAMI, April 18, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Amantys has today expanded its global reach through a significant partnership with Miami-based AmePower. The power electronics distributor is adding the Amantys Power DriveTM family of gate drives to its innovative product portfolio for customers in the US and South America, complementing the IGBT Modules they offer from ABB, Dynex Semiconductors, Hitachi and IXYS.

This distribution agreement signals the arrival of Amantys in the Americas and continues the development of the company's presence in key global markets. The region is particularly important in locomotive traction, industrial motor drives, and renewable energy generation through solar and wind power.

The Amantys Power Drive plug & play family of digital IGBT drivers offer substantial advantages over existing solutions, including advanced short circuit protection, in-circuit configurability and visibility of vital parameters such as temperature during operation.

This innovative approach to power electronics attracted the attention of AmePower General Manager, Luis Contreras: "Amantys brings intelligence to the control of power, and with Insight technology we can receive real-time data about the performance of the system and initiate specific preventive actions as necessary, even when the system is remote or relatively inaccessible. This is particularly important in the US for applications such as rail propulsion systems, making remote diagnosis and maintenance planning more cost efficient and far easier to manage."

"The US is an important market for Amantys with growing opportunities in a wide range of applications for power electronics, so establishing this partnership is a critical part of our long term strategy," added Steve Evans, VP Marketing. "In AmePower we have gained a partner with an excellent portfolio of IGBT Modules and it's a great complement to our IGBT Driver product line-up. We are looking forward to a successful alliance in the United States."

The Amantys Power Drive range is available in operating voltages from 1.2kV to 6.5kV IGBTs with a current load rating up to 3600A. They are compatible with all popular modules from ABB, Dynex, Fuji Electric, Hitachi, Infineon, Powerex or Westcode/IXYS – an excellent match with the franchise portfolio at AmePower.

The lower voltage 1200V/1700V IGBT gate drivers for PrimePACKTM and High Power Module package types are particularly used in wind turbine converters, industrial motor drives and solar energy systems, whilst the higher voltage HPM devices at 3.3kV, 4.5kV and 6.5kV are also used in applications including locomotive traction, industrial motor drives and High Voltage DC power transmission. Each of these applications has a different mission profile – some with smooth predictable load patterns, and others changing as quickly and often as the sun coming out – so the ability to configure the IGBT switching characteristics brings a huge benefit in design productivity and system reliability.

AmePower and Amantys will be exhibiting at the APTA Expo & Annual Meeting taking place in Houston, Texas on 13th to 15th October – come and see us on stand no. 1249: www.aptaexpo.com.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, shared examples from a wide range of industries – including en...
In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Kelly Looney, director of DevOps consulting for Skytap, showed how an incremental approach to introducing containers into complex, distributed applications results in modernization with less risk and more reward. He also shared the story of how Skytap used Docker to get out of the business of managing infrastructure, and into the business of delivering innovation and business value. Attendees learned how up-front planning allows for a clean sep...
Most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes a lot of work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reduction in cost ...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
Enterprise architects are increasingly adopting multi-cloud strategies as they seek to utilize existing data center assets, leverage the advantages of cloud computing and avoid cloud vendor lock-in. This requires a globally aware traffic management strategy that can monitor infrastructure health across data centers and end-user experience globally, while responding to control changes and system specification at the speed of today’s DevOps teams. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Gray, Chie...
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach.

Jack Norris reviews best practices to show how companies develop, deploy, and dynamically update these applications and how this data-first...

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
