Altunsoy reports that Anova successfully produced a 2,500-watt modular AC/DC convertor, the first of its kind in the world, adding the 500-watt models will be on the market this year.

While the delivery time for foreign supplied AC/DC converters takes 30-40 weeks, deliveries of domestic supplies only take 4-6 weeks, he said.

Altunsoy added that convertors will also be available for ships, submarines and electric-powered rail vehicles.
