Innovation is a journey
Since Eltek was founded in the early 1970s, the company can proudly look back on a number of technological achievements and breakthrough products.
"Crazy ideas, ambitions and bold attitude is what takes us forward"
concludes Satvir Singh Parmar, Eltek's Vice President Innovation. And our timeline is the teststament to that.
We started the green revolution in high efficiency power conversion in 2008. With the launch of the Rectiverter in 2016, we yet again brought an innovation to the market that stands out as a benchmark for the industry.
Eltek's first products were simple, yet state-of-the-art, battery chargers, for the Norwegian national telecom operator.
A big shift in rectifier technology came with the introduction of switch mode power supply. Improving efficiency, power density and enabling modular power systems. Eltek was at the forefront of developing this technology.
In our efforts to reduce system size and to make rectifier modules more flexible, Eltek was the first to introduce fan cooling as standard for telecom power. This enabled us to mount the modules horizontal, or flat "“ leading to the first Flatpack family - a tendsetter in the market!
The Flatpack2 was the first rectifier with the current form factor and an interchangeable front cover. Significant improvement in power density.
HE - Eltek started the energy efficiency revolution with the introduction of the HE technology. Since then the market has followed our lead resulting in annual energy savings sufficient to power smaller countries. Eltek has now more than 2.5 million HE-modules in the field, all over the world.
Again setting new standards, Eltek introduced the Rectiverter, a 3-port bidirectional power converter. This opens doors to new applications, and is a good indication of where innovation is going.
