HOUSTON, TX — May 21, 2018 — The AS3 low voltage adjustable speed drive (ASD) offered by Toshiba International Corporation (TIC) has been recognized by Electrical Construction & Maintenance (EC&M) Magazine as Product of the Year in the Motors & Drives category. The AS3, among other category winners, now will compete for the Platinum, Gold, and Silver 2018 Product of the Year awards to be determined via online readers’ poll hosted by EC&M, available online at www.ecmweb.com/2018-product-year-gallery.

“We are honored for the AS3 to be recognized as an EC&M Product of the Year,” said Brian Keith, senior product manager of low voltage adjustable speed drives at TIC. “Built-in communications and Internet of Things applications will factor heavily into the industry’s future and we thank the judges panel for taking this and the other features of the AS3 into consideration.”
