Amantys has expanded its global reach by signing a distribution deal with Moscow-based Micro EM. This follows the appointment of Lintronic to cover the Spanish and Portuguese markets and BSM Technology to bring its Amantys Power Drive family of products to the Indian market.
The agreement with Micro EM signals the arrival of Amantys in Russia and continues the company’s development into key global markets. The new regions are particularly important in locomotive traction, industrial motor drives, and renewable energy generation through solar and wind power.
Amantys is already working closely with Lintronic in the Spanish and Portuguese markets and recently signed up with BSM Technology to target the rapidly growing Indian market.
It was Amantys’ innovative approach to power electronics that attracted the attention of Micro EM Deputy Marketing Director, Oleg Antonov: “Micro EM has been working with Amantys in the Russian market in preparation for this agreement and we’ve already won some new designs with the Amantys Power Drive range of IGBT Drivers.
“Our customers have seen how Amantys products bring intelligence to the control of power, and how with Insight technology, they 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 Russia for applications such as rail propulsion systems, making remote diagnosis and maintenance planning more cost efficient and far easier to manage.”
“We have just signed a distribution agreement in the US and these new partners will help bring our innovative Insight technology to even more markets,” said Steve Evans, VP Marketing at Amantys. “Russia in particular 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.”
The Amantys Power DriveTM range is available in operating voltages from 1.2 kV 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, Mitsubishi or Westcode/IXYS – an excellent match with the franchise portfolio at Micro EM.
