Indianapolis, IN, September 05, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Anticipating increased demand for clean energy parts and systems, Trilithic has launched an initiative to retool and expand production of clean energy products.
The most recent evidence of the company’s commitment to green engineering is a product redesign of the Seeker MCA, a component of Trilithic’s automated leakage management system. Now marked with Trilithic’s new “green engineering” logo, the product has been equipped with energy-saving components that include rechargeable lithium-ion batteries.
Offering one of the best energy-to-weight ratios, no memory effect and a slow loss of charge, the batteries contain no metallic lithium, consume less energy and operate at exceptionally high efficiency.
Similar efficiencies have been used with success in other Trilithic products. Technicians using the 860 DSPi digital installation analyzers have noted for years the exceptional long life of the batteries that need to be charged on average just once a week. Of all the efficiencies built into the 860 DSPi, the ability to operate the instruments in the field for longer periods of time on a single charge, with the back light and without intrusive battery-saving methods was a key design feature.
“Investment in clean energy components is both an economic and environmental imperative,” noted Trilithic Product Manager Thomas Powell. “While the U.S. hasn’t issued aggressive mandates for electronic waste, we’re anticipating new legislation in the near future.”
Operating well above the industry curve in the United States, Trilithic has initiated compliance with the Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive (RoHS). Adopted in July 2006 by the European Union, the directive restricts the use of six hazardous materials in the manufacture of various types of electronic and electrical equipment.
The company also has established standards to meet recycling and recovery mandates for electrical goods as established by European law in February 2003 in the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE).
Trilithic’s corporate wide commitment to green engineering is driving production of environmentally friendly products and components that use nontoxic materials in manufacturing processes, and address environmental issues through the design and production of green engineering practices—like the company’s Leakage Analysis Workshop (LAW) software. Equipped with features that make FCC CLI ride outs more efficient, LAW’s workforce automation and other timesaving features reduce both man-hours and gasoline consumption.
Committed to making green engineering a corporate mandate, Trilithic is currently developing standards and processes to improve the efficiency of all its test equipment.
