Menlo Micro’s Ideal Switch Wins Edison Award for Accelerating the Electrification of Everything

April 26, 2022

Men­lo Micro, the com­pa­ny respon­si­ble for rein­vent­ing the elec­tron­ic switch, today announced that its Ide­al Switch™ received a 2022 Edi­son Award in the Ener­gy Grid & Pow­er Sup­ply cat­e­go­ry. The annu­al Edi­son Awards glob­al­ly rec­og­nizes, hon­ors and fos­ters inno­va­tions and inno­va­tors whose solu­tions make a pos­i­tive impact in the world.

It’s only fit­ting that the Edi­son Awards rec­og­nized Men­lo Micro’s trans­for­ma­tive Ide­al Switch fol­low­ing the 175th birth­day of Thomas Edi­son, the vision­ary who invent­ed and patent­ed the first cir­cuit break­er in 1879, the pre­cur­sor of all mod­ern switch­es,” said Chris Gio­van­niel­lo, co-founder and SVP mar­ket­ing, Men­lo Micro. “The Ide­al Switch brings mas­sive reduc­tions, often greater than 99 per­cent, in size, weight, pow­er and cost across dozens of indus­tries. These reduc­tions are fun­da­men­tal to accel­er­at­ing the tran­si­tion to the elec­tri­fi­ca­tion of every­thing and mod­ern­iz­ing the $100B+ mar­ket for RF and pow­er switch­ing and pro­tec­tion devices in the 21st century.”

Accord­ing to Adroit Mar­ket Research, the glob­al elec­tri­fi­ca­tion mar­ket is expe­ri­enc­ing tremen­dous growth, pro­ject­ed to reach $128 bil­lion by 2028. More intel­li­gent and effi­cient pow­er switch­ing solu­tions are need­ed to con­trol and pro­tect bil­lions of crit­i­cal assets used in indus­tri­al automa­tion, smart build­ings, trans­porta­tion and elec­tri­cal infra­struc­ture. Accord­ing to a recent Men­lo Micro white paper, the Ide­al Switch can con­tribute to a more ener­gy-effi­cient world by help­ing to elim­i­nate 20 per­cent of glob­al car­bon emis­sions and enabling $37B in elec­tric­i­ty sav­ings by 2050.
