Why our drinking water supply customers choose Phoenix Contact

The water supply for 3 million people in the German state of Baden-Württemberg and a network of 770 kilometers of pipelines require the individual systems involved to communicate with each other. In a large modernization project with the regional water supply association, the water supply system was equipped with controllers from Phoenix Contact.
