EA Elektro-Automatik, a global technology company, has opened its new Technology and Training Center in Troy to provide product demos, training, and pre-purchase testing to automotive companies countrywide.

“We are excited to offer a convenient way for customers to test our products and software tools or participate in hands-on demonstrations and training,” says Eric Turner, Americas director of EA Elektro-Automatik. “Our new center will provide a powerful way to showcase our advantages and capabilities to better serve the rapid growth in electrification research and manufacturing in the territory.”

EA Elektro-Automatik offers advanced power test technology that differentiates it from competitors. The company’s units offer enhanced power density with up to 15kW in 3U and 30kW in a 4U package. Additionally, EA bidirectional units provide best-in-class energy recovery, more than 96 percent, and the ability to generate less heat, noise, and operational costs, resulting in a quicker ROI.

The center will feature an advanced demo lab available for in-person training and testing, as well as a video demonstration lab for remote sessions so customers can test various power supplies and software tools. Video demonstrations are conducted by application engineers and have up to six cameras for multiple views. Appointments for the video demo lab can be reserved in as quickly as two days.

While the center expects to serve the local automotive industry, international customers and prospects are also encouraged to come to the center for training and pre-purchase testing needs.

National growth in electric vehicles, alternate energy technology, and energy storage have expanded applications for EA customers which drives the demand for advanced testing equipment.

“We have partnered with a number of renewable energy companies to help them test demanding power applications,” says Turner. “The new center adds to our ability to create long-term partnerships with these companies to help move their technology forward to meet their development and sustainability objectives.”

EA Elektro-Automatik is planning future expansion of the center to handle the interest in the growing technology in DC power supply testing.
