Press shop
The press shop is the entry point into the production of the car bodies. Here, the first parts for the car body are stamped, pressed, and formed. A failure means the interruption of the supply of parts in the production line.

Press shop
Body shop
In the body shop, the pressed parts are joined to form a car body. Countless welding spots are set with high precision by a large number of robots. In order to avoid repercussions of the actuator technology on the communication, separate supplies are even used here. This means that in the event of a failure, the systems can always be set to a starting point that allows the production section to be restarted quickly.

Paint shop
In the paint shop, a failure of the conveying technology or the fans in the oven has serious consequences. The car bodies are ruined when such a failure occurs. Redundancy is essential.

Final assembly
In order to meet the individual wishes of customers, vehicles today have a high degree of variance. This results in countless combinations. To ensure that every part is installed in the right vehicle at the right time, sophisticated logistics and complex data management are required. Reliable communication is a fundamental requirement in this area.

Redundant supply solutions

The redundant supply solution ensures maximum operational safety. Assemble your modular solution with products from our portfolio. Choose among surge protection, energy monitoring, power supply, redundancy module, uninterruptible power supply, and device circuit breaker components suitable for your application.

A redundant power supply solution up to 20 A. This solution includes two QUINT POWER power supplies that are decoupled by a redundancy module. In this way, the failure of one power supply unit does not lead to a system shutdown. The compact buffer module provides additional reliability. With it, an uninterrupted supply can be ensured even in the case of short-term power failures. The surge protection and the CBM electronic circuit breakers protect the power supplies against transient events on the AC side and overloads and short circuits on the DC side.

Redundant 20 A supply solution

Redundant 20 A supply solution

Your advantages

  • Reliable power supply with a redundant design
  • Symmetrical load sharing and permanent monitoring through to the load
  • Bridging short-term power failures
  • Electronic circuit breakers prevent interruptions to the output voltage at the switched-mode power supply unit in case of an error and indicate interference
  • Surge protection increases availability by protecting against transient interference

A redundant power supply solution up to 40 A. This solution provides you with a redundant setup with an additional uninterruptible power supply for managing longer mains failures as well. With the EMpro energy measuring device, it also enables efficient energy monitoring. The CAPAROC electronic circuit breaker system shows you information about the consumption of individual loads. Detect irregularities early on and replace predamaged loads before unplanned system failures occur.
