New voltage regulation for C&I stores that enable a seamless transition between power connection and isolated operation
In addition to a battery storage system, it can also be locally operated, and generate and operate local networks offering the user decisive advantages including increased resilience, a sturdy design, and security. This especially includes the seamless continued operation of the system in the event of a supply network failure.

Auto Frequency Tuning
A countermeasure against rapid fluctuations in the plasma's impedance range is automatic frequency tuning, during which the RF generator sets its fundamental oscillation to a frequency value with better adaptation within a time frame of less than one millisecond.

New pulsed DC technology
Direct current and pulsed direct current sputtering are some of the most frequently used sputtering techniques in the industrial sector. The introduction of pulsed direct current technology facilitated the mass production of coatings made of non-conductive compounds created by reactive magnetron sputtering.

Application of pulsed DC sputtering
One of the most interesting resorption materials for solar cells are copper-indium-selenide (CIS) based materials whose properties can be changed by replacing a part of the indium with gallium to make Cu(In,Ga)Se2, known as CIGS.

DC power for resistance heating in precise MOCVD processes
Metal Organic Chemical Vapor Phase Deposition (MOCVD) is a highly complex procedure for the growth of crystalline layers. MOCVD is implemented for the manufacture of light emitting diodes (LEDs), lasers, transistors, solar cells and other electronic and opto-electronic components, for example, and is the key technology for future markets with high growth potential. TruHeat DC 3000 is the perfect candidate for these applications.

High efficiency and innovative GaN generator in the 2.45-GHz-ISM band for high-tech microwave applications
To date, the main obstacle and greatest disadvantage in the industrialization of microwave processes has been the lack of "options". Up to now, only mechanically mobile components such as rotating plates, agitators, etc. were available to influence the homogeneity of the heating process and to facilitate a targeted temperature distribution and a reproducible heating process.
