Phillips Service Industries launches POWERTHRU, a new clean flywheel energy storage company

Phillips Service Industries today launched POWERTHRU, a new clean flywheel energy storage company that provides ride-through power and voltage stabilization for power quality and recycling applications.

Livonia, Michigan - Phillips Service Industries, Inc. (PSI), an international service and manufacturing company serving the aerospace, defense, automotive, energy, semiconductor and other manufacturing markets, today launched POWERTHRU, a new clean flywheel energy storage company that provides ride-through power and voltage stabilization for power quality and recycling applications. The energy-efficient POWERTHRU flywheel is a cost-effective, low-maintenance, environmentally-sound solution that can supplement, or completely eliminate the need for, flooded/wet cell and valve regulated lead-acid (VRLA) batteries in uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems.


The launch of POWERTHRU stems from PSI's July 2010 asset acquisition of Pentadyne Corporation's flywheel manufacturing business. POWERTHRU will design and manufacture its flywheel energy storage systems in a manufacturing facility located in Livonia, MI.

"The technology behind POWERTHRU's flywheel energy storage systems has a track record of success," said Bob Phillips, Vice President of Marketing. "And we're committed to taking this green solution to new heights."

Manufacturing operations at POWERTHRU are expected to begin in early 2011. Further updates will be available in the coming weeks at www.power-thru.com.

SolarEdge Technologies - Solar Inverters, Power Optimizers and PV Monitoring

The SolarEdge PV inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power conversion architecture to achieve superior solar power harvesting and best-in-class reliability. The fixed-voltage technology ensures the solar inverter is always working at its optimal input voltage over a wider range of string lengths and regardless of environmental conditions. A proprietary data monitoring receiver has been integrated into the inverter and aggregates the power optimizer performance data from each PV module. This data can be transmitted to the web and accessed via the SolarEdge Monitoring Portal for performance analysis, fault detection and troubleshooting of PV systems.
