Advanced Energy® Joins the Encompass™ Product Referencing Program, Which is Part of the Rockwell Automation® PartnerNetwork™ Program

ODVA-certified EtherNet/IP® interfaces provide easy integration of Thyro digital power control modules (PCM) with Rockwell Automation Logix control systems

Fort Collins, Colo., Dec. 12, 2014Advanced Energy Industries, Inc. (NasdaqGM:AEIS) today announced that it has become an Encompass product partner in the Rockwell Automation PartnerNetwork. The Encompass product referencing program allows customers to quickly locate complementary products that best solve any application challenge. Participation in the Encompass program allows Rockwell Automation customers and distributors to easily add referenced products to new proposals and system designs.

As an Encompass partner in the Americas, the Advanced Energy (AE) Thyro product line of digital power control modules provides customers proven solutions for electrical heating applications. Using ODVA-certified Ethernet/IP communications, the Thyro-A™, Thyro-AX™, Thyro-P™ and Thyro-S™ products interact directly with Rockwell Automation Logix PAC® systems, offering customers a low-risk, straightforward path to fully integrated system designs. This provides system integrators and designers requiring precise thermal profiles for process control—in markets such as industrial furnaces, steel, glass, petro-chemical and more—an integrated solution for their manufacturing lines.

“This partnership reinforces the position that AE has in the market as a leading global supplier of power control modules for industrial heat applications,” said Yuval Wasserman, president and chief executive officer of Advanced Energy. “We are thrilled that this partnership will make our products more readily available to the Rockwell Automation customer base and distributor network throughout the Americas.”

Advanced Energy, through its acquisition of AEG Power Solutions’ modular power controller line earlier this year, offers comprehensive and highly flexible SCR-based power control solutions. As an Encompass partner in the Americas, AE offers a new level of performance and ease of integration to substantially reduce costs as well as the amount of time and effort it takes to integrate precision control of electro-thermal processes. AE plans to participate in the 2015 Automation Fair® event sponsored by Rockwell Automation in Chicago as well as various regional events across North America.
