Sometimes when designing or specifying equipment for use in a particular field, the price is the most important factor. Perhaps the application is not very intensive, or use is only occasional, or not a very stringent application. Other times, performance is paramount, in situations of high intensity, where dependability is key, and environments are harsh or demand a high degree of resiliency. It is this latter situation that we’re interested in at PCTI, as we provide several types of high power equipment to the U.S. Military.
Battery charging technology is crucial for energy storage purposes, particularly for renewable technologies being used in mobile and critical backup systems. One of the biggest areas of growth and research in modern charger technology is with the new battery chemistries and the optimized ways to charge them.
Steel is a major part of most people’s everyday lives in the United States. Perhaps the name most often associated with steel is Andrew Carnegie for those who live in the “Steel City” of Pittsburgh. And if you are anywhere near Pittsburgh, Steeler football is not far away.
New York City’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) has a tremendous amount of construction to conduct. The MTA is expanding its subway system in an effort to ease train congestion for commuters and to reach areas of the big city that were left off the subway grid. Where there’s train construction there are workers using complex tools, and these tools need a power source like our portable third rail inverter.
The summer came to an end with the Union declaring victory over the Confederacy. Over the past 148 years, military technology has evolved in a way that Abraham Lincoln and Robert E. Lee likely couldn’t have imagined. It’s certain that even the most visionary veterans of the Civil War couldn’t have imagined the sophistication of fighter aircraft and helicopters that exist today. Power Conversion Technologies’ first orders were aircraft ground support DC power supplies.
Although the move to renewable energy sources has been relatively slow in the past, the pace of alternative energy generation continues to grow.
Our high power battery chargers offer the technology and power to keep military forces in many different nations charged up and going strong!
