Faced with challenging international competition, your applications demand high safety, quality and performance standards. Right from the product development phase, we in the Weidmüller laboratory start to test the components, materials and systems you plan to use. They are customised, designed perfectly for your needs and reliably tested for worldwide applications and solutions.
The Weidmüller laboratory – central interface for product development
Quality is a tradition for us – the first Weidmüller laboratory was already established in 1953 in Königswinter. Today, around 70 technicians, engineers and scientists worldwide are working in an area of
3,500 m² in Detmold and Suzhou, China. “Every year, we deal with around 3,000 requests for quotations, draw up 1,000 lab reports and 1,500 measurement reports,” says Dr. Michael Reiniger, Head of Laboratory, about the many activities. Customers appreciate not only certified quality, but also advice from competent contacts. “Whether corrosion resistance for offshore plants or vibration and stress tests for heavy-duty connectors in trains – we develop customised tests to meet the requirements of our customers and partners.”
Transferring signals on the slimmest of spaces
The PRV marshalling terminal undergoing the vibration test, where the influences of vibration on contacts are thoroughly tested. The modular terminal delivers an above-average performance.
The geometric precision measurement provided the key edge for the space-saving complete solution from the PRV range.
Corrosion-resistant safety relay thanks to intensive inspections and tests
It is not rare for salty spray and a corrosive atmosphere containing traces of chlorine gases or hydrogen sulphide to impact on offshore installations. The SIL relay is designed for precisely these situations.
Over 30 days, the SIL relay was put through a four-component corrosive gas test based on the standard from the 60068 series. The result showed no corrosive effect and no functional impairments.
Equipped for the wind and the weather in the photovoltaics industry
Outstanding measured values as well as assembly and handling benefits mean the PV connection box is suited to the ambitious photovoltaics projects of the future.
The sun and weather tests confirm that the PV connection box is suitable for outdoor applications – even with extreme climatic fluctuations.
