VYCON's Clean Energy Storage Systems Receives Network Products Guide 2010 Product Innovation Award

LOS ANGELES CA--(Marketwire - March 8, 2010) -  VYCON ( a designer and manufacturer of environmentally friendly, high-speed energy storage flywheel systems, announced today that Network Products Guide, the industry's leading information technology research and advisory guide, has named VYCON's VDC and VDC-XE flywheel systems winners of their 2010 Product Innovation Awards within the power backup category. This annually respected award recognizes and honors vendors, large and small, from all over the world with innovative and groundbreaking products that are bringing essential and incremental changes and are setting the bar higher for others in all areas of information technology.

VYCON's VDC backup systems are carbon saving, high-speed flywheels that provide clean ride-through backup power that is predictable and environmentally responsible. Providing a lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) than traditional battery-reliant uninterruptible power systems (UPSs), mission-critical IT applications around the globe are depending on VYCON's flywheel systems to provide reliable and environmentally friendly energy storage. VYCON's VDC and CDC-XE flywheel systems used with three-phase double-conversion UPSs provide reliable mission-critical protection against costly transients, harmonics, voltage sags, spikes and blackouts.

"Innovation is not just about new products alone," says Rake Narang, editor-in-chief of Network Products Guide. "To succeed, companies need to see innovation not as a onetime errand, but as something that has to be continuously evolved and improved upon over and over again. This requires putting greater focus on customer needs and making innovation the center of a company's way of developing better solutions. Innovative products such as VYCON's clean energy storage systems are bringing improvements in how IT and data center managers protect their mission-critical computing assets in a way that reduces costs, overhead and carbon footprint."

VYCON is an innovator in the design and manufacturing of technologically advanced flywheel energy storage systems that enable a highly reliable, cost-effective and "green" energy storage solution for a variety of applications. The company's REGEN flywheel systems, used in regenerative power applications such as container cargo handling crane applications and light electric rail, reduce power and energy costs to port and rail operators as well as provide a reduction in green house gasses.

Key to VYCON's flywheel superiority and dependability is its ability to discharge and recharge very quickly when called upon during power outages. VYCON's fleet of VDC, VDC-XE and REGEN systems have logged a record million-plus discharge and recharge cycles -- in very demanding applications that oftentimes call on the VYCON systems to discharge and recharge every two minutes.
