Four groups of industry VIPs were invited to review the product. They were asked to provide feedback and discuss the various ways thermoelectric generators can be applied to cut costs and solve problems in remote locations. The feedback was extremely positive - especially around the multiple uses for remote energy sources.
“We are in discussions with a few industry leaders that have expressed interest in offering the PowerStrap® as part of their future product offerings,” said Anthony Bianchini, Director of Sales and Marketing at II-VI Marlow. “They see the real-world uses and are interested in this new form of remote energy.”
The Analysis Division (AD) is indispensable to any process analyzer professional, from technician level to design engineer.
