RT7e 48V High Efficiency Receives Class A Verification from China Telecommunication Test Laboratory (CCTL)

We are pleased to announce that the China Telecommunication Test Laboratory (CCTL) has independently verified that our new high efficiency RT7e 48V 100A 3 phase rectifier has achieved 97% or higher efficiency across the range of 40% to 90% load, giving it an A Classification under the China Tower telecommunication standard. The innovations of the RT7e have created a technology platform that will allow RT to spin off other product developments into a range of application areas including electric vehicle charging.

The RT7e contains a recently patented input AC stage of the rectifier known as the power factor correction module (PFCM). The > 97% efficient RT7e is completely plug compatible with its predecessor, the >91% efficient RT7 which has been successfully manufactured in China under license over the last 15 years. The estimated 100,000 plus RT7 units in field can simply be unplugged and replaced with the RT7e for an instant efficiency upgrade. The RT7e will deliver substantial power saving for existing telecommunication power installations without major infrastructure changes. We are now seeking partners in China to distribute the product.

Market Update - Unipower Exclusive Distribution Contract

Rectifier Technologies Pacific (RTP), has signed an exclusive distribution contract with Unipower, a Delaware limited liability company, with its principal place of business in Coral Springs, Florida.

On the 19th of December 2014, C&D Technologies, Inc (an exclusive customer of RTP in North America for more than 10 years) announced the divestiture of its Dunlap, Tennessee based Integrated Power Systems (IPS) business to Unipower.

As a result, the distribution contract between RTP and C&D was terminated. A new contract was needed between RTP and Unipower, which should address the commercial changes that resulted from the divestiture. During negotiations of the new contract, transactions between RTP and Unipower were unaffected.

With the new distribution contract in place, Unipower will have exclusive rights to RTP low voltage products in North America and commits to growing sales figures in that region. RTP is hopeful of increasing its market share in North America through Unipower’s business model and expertise.       

 

Update - RT18 for Electric Vehicle Chargers

The RT18 has been successfully designed into Efacec's QC24S EV charger, where three RT18 rectifiers operate in parallel to produce 24kW.

Pedro Silva, Managing Director of Efacec Electric Mobility says,

The QC24S is the perfect solution for private locations like fleets, car dealers, repair shops, condominiums and others, but also for public locations like shopping centers, parking lots, supermarkets, hotels, restaurants, etc. It can be directly integrated in any charge point operator back office via the internet. With an attractive customizable design, its low volume wall mount construction allows mounting without occupying floor space. Outdoor use is possible, but also its high power factor and efficiency makes it ideal for indoor locations as the heat dissipated is low. These characteristics are possible with the use of the RT18, the most advanced solution in power conversion that meet the demanding requirements of EV charging.

According to Nicholas Yeoh, Director of Sales & Marketing at Rectifier Technologies,

The high density andhigh efficiency of RT high voltage power suppliers, enables more compact EV chargers to be introduced. We are thrilled to be working with a leading provider of EV charging systems like Efacec who is globally known for making high quality EV chargers

The QC24S has now been tested and is in the labs of BMW ( both in Germany and USA ), RWE, Allego, Energica, Siemens and others.
