American Superconductor Releases New System Developer Kit for Rapid Development of Power Conversion Systems
PowerModule(TM) PM1000 System Developer Kit Provides a Platform for Development of Power Conversion Systems Ranging from 60 kilowatts to Multi-Megawatts
NUREMBERG, Germany, May 30 -- American Superconductor Corporation (NASDAQ:AMSC), a leading energy technologies company, announced today the availability of the PowerModule(TM) PM1000 System Developer Kit (SDK) that speeds and simplifies the development of power conversion systems utilized in a variety of applications such as wind and solar farms, fuel cells for stationary and mobile applications, variable speed motor drives, energy storage and defense systems.
The PowerModule PM1000 SDK reduces or eliminates the time normally devoted to building a power conversion system. It also decreases development costs, improves product development cycles and shortens time to market. Power conversion is a crucial factor in designing products for a broad range of application areas. Engineers and lab managers utilize the PM1000 SDK to create power conversion subsystems while they devote their full attention to other critical needs.
"The PowerModule PM1000 SDK will help engineers and lab managers develop new power conversion systems quicker and at a lower cost while shortening their time to market," said Perry Schugart, Director of AMSC's Power Converter Sales. "This is the first time a fully integrated kit for multiple converter systems is available at these power levels. With its ease of use and robust design elements, the PM1000 SDK is the ideal development platform."
The PM1000 SDKs are available for 480 and 690 VAC applications, as well as for air- and liquid-cooled applications. All kits contain one or more PM1000 power converters and the tools necessary to program and configure the converters for the application or product under development. A personal computer-based PowerModule graphical user interface allows users to easily modify one or more PM1000 power converters to meet specific power conversion requirements. Its scalable architecture and flexible platform includes all of the hardware and software development requirements related to power conversion, allowing engineers a rapid and easy means of developing new systems.
