Arc Suppression Technologies

Categories: Environment, Innovators

Arc Suppression Technologies Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer, Reinhold Henke, began his career in the power industry and has been fascinated by the mechanisms of contact arcing for many years.

After nearly six years of concept development, Reinhold determined that advances in component technology allowed for the development of an arc suppression method that at the instant of arc formation could actively suppress contact arcs yielding unprecedented increases in mechanical lifetime, reliability, and safety for power switching applications! With this concept in mind, Reinhold, along with Co-Founder and CEO, Bob Thorbus, formed Arc Suppression Technologies to bring this novel solution to market.
