New Eco-Friendly Inverter Controller Boards for Air Conditioners

San Jose, California, USA – Tuesday, December 19, 2019Syrma Technology, a leader in electronic design and manufacturing services for global OEMs, today launched a line of easily customizable air conditioner inverter controller boards, designed to coincide with increased global demand for green HVAC systems. This new technology offers significant benefits over traditional, fixed-speed air conditioners. Circuit-board microcontrollers enable the inverter to automatically regulate the volume of the BLDC compressor motor, compensating for fluctuating climate conditions, the highest speeds in extremely hot weather to lower speeds in cooler temperatures.

While most of the world craves indoor comfort at economical costs, eco-friendly inverter air conditioners are garnering special attention in India, where recently-enacted energy efficiency regulations mandate the future construction of green buildings, with significantly lower power and water consumption, while the climate of India requires additional topicalization of compressors and other AC components against extreme heat and humidity. With market demand poised to soar, Syrma has leveraged its PCBA design and engineering expertise into the domestic development of cost-effective controller boards, surpassing the quality of imported components.

To fully meet OEM specifications across the aircon market, Syrma offers two variants of inverter controller boards: a high-frequency controller for maximized energy efficiency, and a low-frequency controller, designed for optimized cost competitiveness. Essentially, an air conditioner’s internal thermostat, this automated flexibility reduces normal power consumption by up to 30-50%, while lowering operating noise and limiting daily wear, extending the products’ service life.

“While we’re witnessing a sharp upturn in the global demand for inverter controllers, most of the aircon OEMs we’ve talked to aren’t happy with the quality of boards they’ve received from other global vendors. Common issues revolve around the embedded firmware necessary for the inverters to compensate for changes in ambient temperature. We’ve invested our additional software resources to develop both better boards and firmware, which are universally adaptable to any model of any manufacturer’s air conditioner,” said Sreeram Srinivasan, Syrma’s CEO.

“Our engineering challenge was to analyze the unique heat transfer concepts of an inverter and successfully adapt them into the controller board design. The end result is a versatile line of cost-competitive controller boards which are an ideal choice for OEMs targeting the expanding markets of Asia and beyond,” said Sreedharan NG, Syrma’s VP of Engineering.

Backed by 40 Years of Expertise

Syrma contributes our 40 years of design and manufacturing expertise spanning multiple diverse markets, and we look forward to discussing how we can deliver world-class products for OEMs across the globe. We understand our home Indian market, familiar with its vast regulatory and selling environments. Our team fosters growth opportunities within India through our strong technology incubation ecosystem. We also assist global OEMs seeking to enter the Indian market by leveraging the local supply chain and favorable operating environments for cost reductions.

Our flagship Chennai location opened in 2006 and lies within a Special Economic Zone (SEZ) for electronics manufacturing, offering economic incentives for imports and exports. This primary facility is within 90 minutes of the Chennai seaport and 20 minutes to the international airport, with additional road and rail, connectivity linking to the rest of India and beyond, as well as infrastructure advantages with faster import and export clearances. We also have labor force availability, both technical and manual, to rapidly scale to client demand.
