Thanks to Weidmüller's marking system, the pumping stations operated by the Paderborn waste water treatment, STEB, have clarity in more ways than one
A decisive reduction in system downtime
Cable markers ensure clear assignment
Tailor-made PLC labelling with individually printable labels supplied on a roll
A wide product range to meet every need
Even the PLC interfaces, which are also supplied by Weidmüller, are clearly marked
You can quickly and easily create markers with M-Print® PRO software since the data can be directly imported from the planning software via a CAE interface into the marking software programme.
STEB used symbols and logos alongside text during the design process, as the high-quality printing system is ideally suited for such purposes. For example, yellow stickers could be printed with lightning symbols as a clear warning, or ratings plates could be printed with a manufacturer’s logo in colour to provide information about the electrical cabinet manufacturer who built the cabinet.
The turquoise-coloured, non-adhesive labels THM ET S7 come on a roll and are specifically designed for labelling Siemens SIMATIC S7 controllers. This meant that it was possible to accurately mark these systems as well.
“Inspired by Weidmüller’s solutions, we are already thinking of the next step, which we think will be to print our cable markers with the PrintJet PRO in colour. By doing this we could more clearly differentiate between the voltages,” explained Karlheinz Steffens, remaining true to his aim of improving the ease of maintenance and safety in the electrical systems of the town’s waste water disposal company.
