► New REO-USA Mix'n Match™ Hybrid reactors meet power needs with less weight and space and lower cost

February 26th, 2015

Gone are the days when either-or options such as copper versus aluminum, layer versus disc winding, and a couple of component protection options forced specifying too little or too much reactor for your products.

REO-USA brings you Mix'n Match™ Hybrids, air core reactors that can incorporate both copper and aluminum material, provide different and/or parallel windings and use several protective methods all in a single component tailored to your power, size and weight as well as budget needs. Market-wide introduction of this technology follows years of extensive component design, testing and real-world proving by the Indianapolis firm and its Germany-based parent, REO.

"We're already producing hybrids for U.S. customers in the transportation industry," says Rick Jones, REO-USA Senior Director of Engineering. "In fact, some specs required additional design alterations in our extensive line, which we can easily accommodate. To my knowledge, we're the only manufacturer to offer Hybrid options, certainly a more extensive selection than anyone else. We offer a complete range of standard reactor configurations, all of which adds up to more ways to precisely match specific product performance and budget requirements."

Comparsion of materials of an air choke

While all REO-USA air core reactors provide high linearity, it's easy to see how Mix'n Match Hybrids can provide a happy medium option between Copper- or Aluminum-only. REO-USA fully tests reactors up to 1500 amps, using the highest-range equipment available.

Power, weight, space - matching the most effective Material mix to your needs

In terms of material, many makers offer only copper or aluminum, according to Jones. Each has its own plusses and minuses. more
