TERMSERIES-compact – vibration-proof universal relay with ultra-compact design

Universal relays are needed in numerous general applications in automation – and are therefore used in more and more industrial fields. To guarantee maximum plant availability, they also need to work reliably in environments subject to frequent vibration. At the same time, more compact modules that fit into flat switchgear cabinets are also needed. With TERMSERIES-compact, Weidmüller now presents literally a small revolution that meets both these requirements in impressive form – and can do much more besides.

Decentralisation, intelligent industrial IoT solutions and visualisation are key technologies for the success of intralogistics systems. Weidmüller offers products and solutions for automation and data analysis that help users get ready for the industrial IoT.

Condition monitoring for electrolysis stacks

Bipolar plates are the heart of electrolysers, which are used to produce hydrogen. Depending on the manufacturing process, stacks can consist of hundreds of such bipolar plates, whereby a single defective plate can negatively impact the performance of the entire stack. Because of this, it makes sense to monitor the voltage of each plate separately. Weidmüller has developed solutions for this purpose. With these solutions measured values ​​can be recorded and processed reliably, safely and economically, even in potentially explosive areas.

SNAP IN connection technology: ready for the future, ready-to-robot

With SNAP IN, the electronics and connectivity company Weidmüller introduced innovative connection technology in 2021, which is already setting new standards in the field of connectivity – and is also optimised for panel building of the future. SNAP IN enables automated wiring by industrial robots.
