Industrial Motion & Motor Control

Why Choose Our Solutions

As the demands for energy efficiency, environmental responsibility and meeting government regulations are increasing, the need for highly efficient electronic systems becomes more and more important. Since electrical motors are the single largest consumer of electrical power and account for between 40 to 50 percent of total global energy consumption, it is essential that motor control solutions are both efficient and reliable. Our constantly expanding product portfolio—combined with manufacturing process enhancements—innovative topologies, and our systems expertise, allow circuit designers to develop the most advanced solutions to meet their needs. We offer a broad range of SPM®, IGBTs, Gate Drivers, PFC-PWM combos, MOSFETs, phototransistors and diodes for every motor control application.
