Mr. Falko Ladiges, in charge of the product marketing PEMCO at WDI: “The products of Jianghai are an excellent supplement to our portfolio of passive components. As we are already well established in the segment of industrial power electronics, we expect interesting synergy effects by taking the Jianghai franchise.”
Jianghai’s comprehensive range of snap-in and screw-terminal capacitors can be delivered with voltage ratings from 10V to 630V, operating temperatures from -40°C to +125°C and a lifetime of up to 20.000 h at 85°C. Mr. Ole Bjørn, general manager at Jianghai Europe: “Jianghai’s target market is the field of industrial applications. The next step is to become the preferred supplier for capacitors on the European market for industrial power electronics. Working together with WDI, we are convinced to have found a partner who will sustainably support us in taking this step.”
