于瑞士深耕动力电子设备制造 30 余年

Studer 自创立之初便一直走在储能逆变器制造的最前沿。尽管在该行业不断演变的过程中,新的竞争对手层出不穷,但 Studer 始终保持着自身的领先地位。Studer 的所有制造活动均按照最高质量标准在瑞士进行。以下,Studer 销售主管 Serge Remy 带领 PES 回顾了 Studer 30 多年的历史,并向 PES 讲述了 Studer 的现状。 开创期 以下故事的主角是一家于瑞士萌芽并逐步发展壮大的公司。 1987 年,该公司创始人 Roland Studer 萌生出一个伟大的想法:将高价值能量调节设备推向一个崭新的市场,一个当时尚处在发展初期的市场,并将该等设备销往瑞士以外的其他国家。这个崭新的市场当然就是太阳能光伏市场。 首款具有模拟显示功能的 200Wp 太阳能充电控制器问世 仅一年之后,该首款设备便经过改进而达到了高达 300Wp 的峰值功率,并集成了数字显示功能。 发展壮大期 90 年代,Studer 销售额呈现出指数增长,并开发出其首款正弦波逆变器。 Studer 的创新成果之所以能脱颖而出,是因为他们并未单纯停留于发明本身,而是积极地将发明转化为新产品、解决方案和服务,从而使自身在市场上占有一席之地。 1998 年,Studer 发明了首款内置太阳能充电的逆变器。在接下来的十年里,其业务在全球范围内扩展至可再生能源领域的其他应用,如移动、备用和通讯系统。 2000 年前夕,地方性企业 Studer Innotec 完美转身,成为一家全球性企业。 潜心创新 Studer 自创立之初便一直以创新来定义自身。事实上,正是创新这一品质造就了 Studer。 在接下来的十年里,Studer推出业界最先进对的Xtender系列模块式逆变器,该系统开启了一系列旨在优化可用能源之利用的产品。这些产品既可用作离网逆变器、电池充电器、并网馈电设备,也可为输入电网提供能量协助。Xtender 既是一种高科技设备,又是能源系统管理的关键参与者。
