KATEK Memmingen GmbH expands development area for PV power electronics

Memmingen, 19/01/2021 – KATEK Memmingen GmbH is expanding its development area for photovoltaic power electronics: With a new department, the electronics service provider is strengthening its expertise in hybrid inverters. New products will soon be introduced under the KATEK brand Steca.

Homeowners are increasingly focusing on self-sufficiency

The storage market is experiencing strong growth, and more and more homeowners are opting for a stand-alone energy supply solution, reports Klauspeter Bader, Managing Director of KATEK Memmingen GmbH. “The trend here is towards high-voltage electricity storage systems that deliver more power. We are therefore very pleased that we have gained experienced inverter experts for our new development area. Hybrid inverters have a good future and we not only want to produce them, but we also want to continue to be among the technology leaders for power electronics with our own developments.”

Steca technology: Replacement power for all consumers

In the event of a power failure, the new generation of Steca hybrid inverters from KATEK Memmingen GmbH can disconnect a household from the grid within a very short time and switch over to islanding operation. This system solution ensures that the electricity storage unit can supply all three phases in the local grid so that all consumers can continue to operate seamlessly. The inverter technology is complemented by smart system components for the real-time measurement of energy consumption and a modern energy management module.

Future technology for residential buildings

“In its acquisition of inverter manufacturer Steca last year, the KATEK Group took on one of the pioneers of renewable energies in Germany, which brings with it a great deal of manufacturing and engineering expertise”, explains Rainer Koppitz, CEO of the KATEK Group. “Now, with the establishment of the new product and development department, we are taking an additional step in our pursuit of future technology for residential buildings. This expansion of our portfolio also helps us continue to provide our customers with optimal service as an OEM and ODM partner.”
