Mitsubishi Wins Top Products 2018 Honors

Mitsubishi Wins Top Products 2018 Honors

Mitsubishi Electric received "Top Products 2018" accolades for its SUMMIT Series® UPS featuring Silicon Carbide (SiC) semiconductors.  The use of SiC as the semiconductor material enables power switching devices to operate at much higher voltages, frequencies and temperatures than conventional semiconductor materials. All of these desirable characteristics lead to higher efficiencies, and in the case of the SUMMIT, operational efficiencies up to 99%.  As proof, the SUMMIT Series 750 and 500 kVA UPS models available from Mitsubishi Electric garnered the two highest ratings on the Energy Star website in the AC-Double Conversion (VFI) product category. Higher efficiencies translate to lower energy usage and cooling costs and also contribute to a lower total cost of ownership.  In addition, silicon carbide inherently offers higher thermal conductivity, thereby promoting heat dissipation and effectively reducing the operational temperature of the equipment.
