Open for joint evolution
While Power Solutions has been using the AGC-4 for years, the company is currently considering an upgrade to the DEIF iE 250 intelligent energy controller. The device takes flexibility to a new level with features such as one hardware variant for all applications, flexible Modbus tables, Custom Logic, and a user interface that can be customised to show anything the user requires – and hide anything that is not relevant. These features and the powerful processor of the new controller will support future growth at Power Solutions by helping the company adapt to new challenges in a rapidly changing world. Similarly, Ivan Meeus hints that his company and DEIF could work together on a gradual evolution towards using cleaner power sources.
“At the moment, we are using only diesel-driven generators,” explains Ivan Meeus. “But considering the future and the pollution with diesel generators, we are looking into other energy sources like gas and hydrogen. For Power Solutions, new energy sources are still a blank sheet, and any support is welcome. If DEIF sees an opportunity to work with Power Solutions in a certain branch or on a certain energy source, hydrogen or battery packs, we are more than interested in working together. Seeing the relationship that Power Solutions and DEIF already have since the beginning of Power Solutions, we are definitely open for it.”
