Products for Drives and Automation
Hitachi maintains research and development departments in all branches of the company which are continually working on the improvement of products and technologies. Synergy effects are specifically used in product policy. As a result, many components for Hitachi products are produced within the company itself.
A prime example of this is the H8S high performance chip. It provides processing power for a number of electronics products.
Hitachi Inverter and PLC also include several components manufactured in Hitachi plants.
This ensures that Hitachi's high demands on quality are met and also allows for a very competitive price structure.
