Sights and Sounds from PCIM Europe


This year, PCIM Europe hit various record highs, and we’re excited to have been a part of the show. With more than 330 exhibitors and 7,000 pre-registered visitors, this year’s event was bigger than ever. It was great to meet so many new people interested in power electronics, intelligent motion, renewable energy and energy management. As we met more engineers who were looking to increase the efficiency of their designs, it became clear that the demand for improved energy storage options is rapidly increasing.

PCIM attendees went to the show in search of innovative energy storage options that enhance application performance. Whether the application in mind was an LED, a hybrid vehicle or a wind turbine, attendees found the innovation they were looking for in energy storage technologies such as ultracapacitors. Ultracapacitors can store a large amount of power in a small package and significantly enhance batteries in hybrid systems, improving the power density of the hybrid supply.
