Suresense signs OEM deal with Hitachi
22 August 2014
British manufacturer of energy saving technology for AC motors, Suresense Technologies, has signed an OEM agreement with Hitachi Power Solutions, which licences Hitachi to market the Suresense soft-starter motor controller under its Prohestar range to clients globally.
The initial agreement is for five years. Suresense will be responsible for manufacturing the Prohestar range for Hitachi and will benefit from the credibility and new markets that Hitachi will introduce to them.
The technology from Suresense reduces energy consumption for fixed speed AC motors that operate under variable load conditions, it also extends the lifetime of the motor through heat reduction that is known to be the biggest destroyer of motors.
