itsubishi Electric Corporation (TOKYO:6503) launched its new “PV Series” intelligent power

modules (IPM), mainly for use in residential pho- tovoltaic (PV) inverters. The six models, which can also be used in inverters for fuel cell systems, each measure 90mm x 50mm, contributing greatly to PV inverter miniaturization. Shipments will begin in May 2010 through Mitsubishi Electric sales sites in the Americas, Europe, China and Korea. The mounting surface of the new IPM models is about 30% less than that of Mitsubishi Electric‘s current PV series IPMs launched in 2005. This compact package helps make PV inverters smaller.

Mitsubishi Electric has prepared six models in the new PV series, to suit the various types of circuits in PV inverters, such as single output inverter, single output inverter with one chopper, as well as single output inverter with two choppers. The lineup con- sists of 4-chip, 5-chip and 6-chip modules, each with a choice of one of two types of current rating: 50 amperes (A) and 75A.

United States, Advanced Refractory Technologies, building it from a one-person startup to a multinati- onal operation with multiple manufacturing facilities and over 325 employees.

“I am extremely impressed by NanoMech’s accom- plishments to date, the tremendous momentum that the company’s proprietary technologies and products have established, and the significant commercial interest in NanoMech that major companies have exhibited. This is clearly a company poised for major growth in exciting markets, and I am very happy to be joining the team to help accelerate NanoMech’s transition to a commercially focused enterprise,” said Blakely. NanoMech’s scientists and engineers design a wide variety of nanocomposite materials and coatings that have properties such as extreme wear resistance, self-lubrication, antimicrobial action, biocompatibility and other attributes that benefit multiple industries. NanoMech’s suite of nanomateri- als and manufacturing technologies holds numerous patents and patents pending.
