Products & Services:
Alacrity Electronics products and services enable optimum and effective usage of available energy resources. Electrical energy conservation acquires vital significance in the context of constrained resources in power generation. AEL’s strategically designed products cater to critical needs in Power Conversion, Power Conditioning and Instrumentation & Control.
Power Conditioners:The KRYKARD range of Power Conditioners protect and enhance productivity of critical & sensitive machines & equipment by providing reliable, clean and healthy power. The product range covers Servo Controlled Voltage Stabilisers, UPS and Transformers. With the experience of over 200,000 installations across a wide spectrum of industries in various operating environments environment since 1982, KRYKARD today enjoys an unparalleled Brand Equity in the field of Power Conditioning. AEL’s R&D efforts have resulted in registering three patents.
Instrumentation & Control:The KRYKARD range of Load Managers is designed to equip users to control and optimize their energy usage through in-house electrical energy management. The product range covers various types of portable & panel mounted Load Managers. Over 2500 industries using KRYKARD Load Managers are reaping the benefits of the increased efficiency and output derived from comprehensive in-house energy management measures.
Aluminium Foil Transformers (AFT):Efficient conversion of Electrical energy needs efficient transformers. The pressure on costs in an increasingly competitive industry leads to cutting of corners and consequently poor efficiencies in Power conversion. AEL developed a cost effective technology for manufacturing Aluminium Foil wound Transformers (AFT) in 1992. The AFT while being efficient in itself also provides an alternative to the transformer industry in its search for a fresh approach to manage pressure on costs with no compromises.After having successfully used AFT in over 200,000 Power Conditioners for over a decade and more recently having supplied over 50,000 AFT to various OEMs, AEL now offers AFT to all those seeking a cost effective and proven alternative for their own conventionally designed copper wire wound Transformers.
Products for use of alternate sources of energy:Recently in association with Centre for Fuel Cell Technology (CFCT), a unit of ARC International, Hyderabad, which is promoted as an Autonomous R&D Centre by the Dept of Science & Technology, Govt of India, AEL has sucessfully developed Inverters & DC - DC Converters for Fuel Cell applications. With these products, the Fuel Cell can now be extended to almost all applications where stable, continuous and clean power is required, making the user of the Fuel cell grid independent. This development puts AEL on the map for Alternate sources of Energy.
