Advanced Energy Introduces New SCR Power Controller with Advanced Performance and New Capabilities to Bring Industry 4.0 to Precision Heating Applications

New Thyro-A+ substantially increases control accuracy in the industry’s smallest design footprint to meet the challenges in semiconductor and industrial manufacturing


COLORADO - Media OutReach - 25
November 2020 - Advanced
Energy Industries, Inc. (Nasdaq: AEIS)
-- a global leader in highly engineered, precision
power conversion, measurement and control solutions -- today announced the
expansion of its market-leading line of SCR (silicon controlled rectifier)
power controllers with its new Thyro-A+ for precision industrial and
semiconductor heating applications. Thyro-A+ provides customers with next-generation
SCR accuracy and load monitoring, the industry's smallest design footprint and
new digital control capabilities for precision heating, melting, drying and
forming applications.

Thyro-A+ has a completely redesigned control engine, enabling a 16x increase to measurement sampling rate over the Thyro-A, for enhanced control accuracy, which substantially improves process uniformity and repeatability, reduces energy consumption, and increases process throughput in precision heating applications. It comes with the industry's smallest design footprint,
delivering industry-leading power density.
Featuring a new optional LED display for easy commissioning or
visualization, Thyro-A+ offers a number of advanced digital capabilities for
remote controlling, self-monitoring and a digital control interface for integration
with other connected factory software and applications to deliver on the
promise of Industry 4.0.

"Building on Advanced Energy's renowned
family of SCR power controllers, the Thyro-A+ is our most advanced SCR, further
expanding the range and capabilities of our solutions to meet the heating
application requirements of our industrial and semiconductor customers," said Andreas
Breitkopf, director, photonics and PCS products at Advanced Energy. "Among AE's
other SCR power controllers, Thyro-A+ is certified in the Rockwell Encompass
Partner program and connects directly with Rockwell Automation Logix PAC systems,
providing customers with a straightforward path to fully integrated system

Thyro-A+ rounds out AE's Thyro family of
power controllers, which includes Thyro-S, Thyro-A eco, Thyro-A and Thyro-PX
series. Thyro-A+ has a new powerful controller, which delivers
on industry-leading accuracy, load monitoring and control of power for heating
elements, resistive loads and transformer loads in a wide range of heating
applications. The design provides lightning-fast installation and replacement
with "copy-paste" configuration profiles that easily transfer system parameters
between multiple SCR power controllers. Customers reduce system installation
costs with the most compact SCR footprint available, and a wide variety of
fieldbus protocols allow for the most efficient installation possible, allowing
for effortless integration into existing enterprise applications for critical
thermal processes.
