PSIM's Greatest Value

Author: John Honovich, Published on Jan 17, 2013

PSIM has great value. It's just typically not for the people who buy and use them.

Let me tell you a story. I know an integrator who is an evil genius. One of the cleverest tricks he uses is a territory exclusive for a PSIM. This obviously helps to sell the product but that is not the real value of his deal. He does not particularly care how much money he gets from selling PSIM.
