We are your global partner for customized connectivity solutions for machines and systems that can markedly reduce your total cost of ownership.
Nowadays, it is more important than ever to continually increase the efficiency of production processes while simultaneously reducing the necessary capital expenditure. Here, it is not so much the purchase price as the total cost of ownership that is the primary concern. That is why our customized solutions, tailored to your specific requirements, guarantee you the best possible economic efficiency, because they are characterized by optimum performance and extreme reliability. In short: our tailored solutions add value in many different ways.
Implementing this type of solution within a comparatively short time not only calls for comprehensive technical expertise but also flexibility and fast reactions. In our Connectivity Center, the only one of its kind in the market, we have a team of experts who can advise you on every aspect of your requirements, from tailored connectors and cable assemblies to active and passive I/O modules for fieldbus or Ethernet networks.
The successful implementation of our customized solutions rests on our decades of experience in connecting machines and systems, plus a range of standard products with an underlying platform strategy. All of them are remarkable for their high electrical and mechanical robustness, and extended operating temperature range or protection classes up to IP69K. They also serve to simplify deployment, maintenance and servicing, thus maximizing the useful life of your machines.
The motto of the Connectivity Center is “listen, understand, implement and deliver”. You will benefit both from the expertise of our knowledgeable specialists and from our extensive experience as a leading supplier of high-quality automation components. Let us utilize your challenges for our mutual success.
Our developments always focus on creating new application solutions, simplifying initial product operation, eliminating the need for additional devices and implementing new technologies and methods.
With customized developments, we focus on miniaturizing components and reducing their number, plus enhancing modularity and flexibility. In this way, suppliers of machines and systems receive proven products with individual modifications, and equipment manufacturers get specific interface management solutions.
For every development project, the experts at our Connectivity Center first analyze the technological requirements and then compile a solution concept. It takes less than two weeks for us to provide you with an offer for your request for a solution consisting of cables and connectors. For more complex new products, our processing time will depend on your specific requirements. We cooperate closely with you, our valued customer from the very start, to determine how we can best respond to your requirements.
In order to implement such jointly developed solutions quickly, we have acquired production equipment that is used only for prototypes, and our main production facilities are optimally geared for small series production. We also have our own laboratories for carrying out a wide range of mechanical, electrical and chemical tests.
On average, the development of a new cable with molded connectors can now be completed in only six weeks, including the time taken for the customer’s approval.
Our high-grade connectors and innovative connectivity solutions are used in virtually all areas of automation, particularly in the fields of machine and system engineering, building system installations and renewable energies.
As an example, one of our recent developments was a cable for the configuration of M8 sensors, with an appropriate connector on one end and a USB interface on the other – a flexible, reliable and cost-effective solution that has enabled our customer to use notebooks to parameterize its end-products, opening up the possibility of numerous additional features.
