A local manufacturer hopes to grab more market share with the launch of a new product.
Miamisburg-based Staco Energy Products this week unveiled its active harmonic filter, the StacoSine Plus.
The filter — in which the company and a partner spent $100,000 to develop — is being touted as more versatile in solving power problems caused by sophisticated electronic equipment than its original StacoSine model.
The StacoSine Plus also has been made to better control voltage and not overheat, said Rich Zuccaro, a program manager at Staco.
It is aimed mainly at water treatment facilities, textile and paper mills, steel mills, pharmaceutical facilities, data centers, medical facilities, and more.
Staco makes voltage control, VAR compensation, uninterruptible power supplies and engineered power quality solutions. It has about 70 employees, most of whom are its Miamisburg office or Dayton production facility.
The company is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Dallas-based Components Corp. of America.
