Power Electronics International Inc. was founded by Victor J. Habisohn in 1969.
Pictured is Victor J. Habisohn with the first prototype of the Central Timing Equipment used on all Apollo and L.E.M. (Lunar Excursion Module) missions. Victor was the initial Program Manager for Design and Manufacture of the Timing Equipment. The Timing Equipment provided critical time accumulation and synchronizing signals for the major communications and Electronic Systems aboard the Apollo Command Module and the L.E.M. The Central Timing Equipment had the highest reliability requirement of all the Electronic Systems in the Command Module and L.E.M. Under his guidance we have effectively transferred this philosophy of high quality, reliability, and safety to our product line.
Power Electronics started in Chicago, Illinois in 1969 designing variable frequency drives.
PE is also one of the early pioneers of solid state A.C. motor soft-start controls and complete control panels. Located in East Dundee, Illinois, our new multi-level manufacturing production facility allows PE to maintain and increase product quality, reliability and offer short lead times to our customers.
As a world-class manufacturer of Micro-Speed® variable frequency drives and Smooth-Move® reduced torque control units, PE equipment is world reknown for high reliability and quality. Multi-Vector® drives also make PE the world leader in heavy-duty closed loop quality hoist speed control. With over a quarter of a million crane/hoist motions utilizing Power Electronics International, Inc. equipment, you can be assured if it’s PE then it’s the best! PE is also a U.L. and C-U.L. approved manufacturer of quality control panels and automation sustems.
