VYCON's Clean Energy Storage System Wins EC&M Magazine's 2013 Product of the Year Award in Power Conditioning Category

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/08/13 -- VYCON (www.vyconenergy.com), a designer and manufacturer of environmentally-friendly, high-speed energy storage flywheel systems, today announced that its VDC-XE (Xtended Energy) with High Capacity (HC) option backup system has been awarded EC&M (www.ecmweb.com) magazine's Power Conditioning & Backup Power Equipment Category Winner in the 2013 EC&M Product of the Year competition. This accolade showcases VYCON's VDC-XE with HC as one of the most innovative products of the past year, highlighting the talent and commitment of all those involved in the development process.

The 2013 EC&M Product of the Year competition received a record-breaking 160 entries spread out over 47 categories. These entries were evaluated carefully by a panel of 12 judges, representing electrical professionals from the engineering, contracting, and the plant facilities and maintenance industries. The category winners will go on to vie for the 2013 Product of the Year Platinum, Gold, and Silver awards, which will be determined through an online readers' poll and announced in the July issue.

"To receive this award from such an esteemed panel of judges is an honor," said VYCON's President, Frank DeLattre. "Our mission is threefold: to supply unparalleled power protection for mission critical applications, to provide our users with a smarter and greener approach to power protection, and to eliminate the need for costly cooling. At the end of the day, it's the safeguarding of crucial applications that facility managers rely on, and the positive feedback we continue to receive on our VDC-XE with HC is a testament to that achievement."

Tested and compatible with all major brands of three-phase Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) systems and available from VYCON's channel partners including, ABB, Eaton (Powerware), Chloride, Emerson (Liebert), Schneider (MGE-APC), Mitsubishi, GE, Toshiba, Riello & Socomec, the VDC-XE with HC is the ideal solution for protecting power dependent applications ranging from 40kW to megawatt installations, and features a 20-year life without a major service interval. Presenting optimized power electronics for significantly improved power density, the new energy storage systems replace traditional lead-acid backup batteries used with UPS systems, providing users with a smarter, greener and more cost-effective approach to power protection.
