GE launches Critical Power Business
New business aims to offer solutions to keep electricity flowing
GE has announced the launch of a new Critical Power Business, which aims to offer end-to-end solutions to maintain consistent power supplies during electricity outages. Aimed at critical industries such as hospitals, telecommunication networks and data centres, the new business aims to ensure efficient and reliable power in the face of rising concerns over power supplies.
“The focus of GE’s Critical Power business is to help customers reduce energy consumption and minimise the operating costs associated with supplying power to their mission-critical applications. We support our customers from the front-end design through the lifecycle of the equipment to help them realise the greatest benefit from their investment,” said GE Critical Power general manager, Jeff Schnitzer.
The new business is headquartered in Plano, Texas, and will serve the global market with power-switching products, UPS, DEC energy systems and embedded power supplies.
The firm’s focus on embedded power will see it design and manufacture embedded power modules to provide AC/DC standard, as well as custom power supplies and DC/DC circuit board mounted power modules.
