UBM Tech's EDN Names OutBack Power's Radian GS7048E Inverter/Charger to 2012 Hot 100 Products

The 2012 EDN Hot 100 highlights the electronics industry's most significant products of the year based on innovation, usefulness and popularity.

ARLINGTON, Wash.--OutBack Power Technologies, Inc., a designer and manufacturer of advanced power electronics for renewable energy, backup power and mobile applications, today announced that EDN named OutBack's Radian Series GS7048E inverter/charger as one of the "100 Hot Products of 2012." The 2012 EDN Hot 100 highlights the electronics industry's most significant products of the year based on innovation, usefulness and popularity.


The OutBack Power grid-interactive Radian Series GS7048E 230V Inverter/Charger delivers 7,000 continuous watts of pure sine-wave power to residential, industrial, commercial and other applications across a diverse range of global power scenarios. The Radian's modular design creates the opportunity to build scalable systems that can power nearly any load. In mission-critical deployments, the Radian's dual-module design lets systems come back online at half the capacity of continuous power, which delivers redundancy and minimizes emergency service calls.

Phil Undercuffler, director of product management and strategy for OutBack Power, said, "The Radian Series GS7048E inverter/charger gives users worldwide seamless flexibility in multiple operating modes to fully manage power and store energy to save money, achieve independence and increase security, regardless of their geography or voltage. These grid/hybrid systems are rapidly gaining ground because they offer the best of the grid-interactive and off-grid installations that came before them: savings when the grid is up and essential power when the grid fails."

"It's always a fun and enlightening challenge for the EDN editors to select the year's Hot 100 products, which has been an annual tradition at EDN since 1993. This year's selection not only reflects some technology trends that have been in place for a while, but also highlights some new trends that are just emerging, as well as a unique product or two that is in a class of its own," said Rich Pell, executive and chief technical editor, EDN.
