Get inspired by creative solutions from the fields of infrastructure, the energy industry, the process industry, and factory automation. With many years of industry expertise, our industry experts are the only support you need to master your challenges based on your needs.

For a long time, digitalization and Industrie 4.0 have been able to be implemented in real applications, whether you need a cloud connection or would like to benefit from the advantages of an open control platform. We offer and develop tailor-made automation solutions together with you – contact us for more information.

Automation is experiencing an unprecedented paradigm shift: classic system structures are developing into globally interlinked production systems. The demand for smart maintenance, digitalization and flexible production processes is growing. Young engineers and software developers are shaping new working methodologies. Future-oriented industrial business models are becoming possible thanks to cloud computing.

It is time for a platform that provides completely new levels of freedom for automation. Experience the new PLCnext Technology control platform, and Proficloud, the professional cloud solution.

Further information

As the number of distributed automation components increases, so too does the number of necessary interfaces. Whether in industrial or process automation, in building automation or in the energy sector – tailor-made PCB connections, connectors and electronics housings form the basis of intelligently networked devices.

Experience the latest Phoenix Contact innovations at the Hannover Messe. Lever-actuated PCB connectors, electronics housings versatile in application, and compact fiber optic splice boxes are just a few of the numerous creative solutions for a smart world.

Control cabinet manufacturing today is characterized by sinking batch sizes, increasing cost pressure and shorter delivery times. This area of manufacturing has undergone little automation, however.

At our trade show booth, learn how you can design your processes to be more efficient in a generously equipped workshop area. Starting with the selection of the right components, through intuitive planning, all the way through to production with rapid wiring and installation.

The EV Charging Suite software forms the interface between the driver, charging park, grid operator, and backend provider. The integrated load management system ensures optimum distribution of the contractually available connected load to the charging points. Furthermore, the software supports the convenient management of the charging points and users, various authorization methods, and a consumption-based billing system via the backend provider.

Further information

Thanks to an integrated cooling, charging stations with HPC technology achieve a charging power of up to 500,000 watts. This will charge an electric car in three to five minutes for a range of 100 kilometers. The High Power Charging system includes electric vehicle charging plugs, a cooling system and a corresponding controller for the cooling circuit. Moreover, a standardized interface is offered for guiding the charging cable into the charging station, with strain relief.

Further information

The basis for the intelligent production of tomorrow is the use of a consistent digital description. The technology network of Eplan, Rittal, and Phoenix Contact demonstrates the consistent, automated process from the digital item through engineering, and right through to production.

What is the Hannover Messe?

The Hannover Messe (HM) is the most important leading trade show for international industry. It is based on several leading trade shows on the key topics of modern industry:

  • Integrated Automation, Motion & Drives: International Leading Trade Show for Integrated Automation, Industrial IT, Drive and Fluid Technology
  • Digital Factory: International leading trade show for integrated processes and IT solutions
  • Energy: International leading trade show for integrated energy systems and mobility
  • Industrial Supply: International leading trade show for supplier solutions and light construction
  • Research and Technology: International leading trade show for research, development and the transfer of technology

The leading trade shows are oriented toward various technologies and areas of application. In 2018, the leading trade shows Industrial Automation and MDA are merging to create a new, annual event – Integrated Automation, Motion and Drives (IAMD). The IAMD covers the entire spectrum of industrial automation, IT, drive and fluid technology. This provides companies with a platform to showcase solutions for intelligent production processes. This turns the smart factory into a reality. Phoenix Contact is represented at the new leading trade show in Hall 9.

Hannover Messe Obama visit: Into the future with the Chancellor and President

The USA was the partner country of the Hannover Messe in 2016. The US President at the time, Barack Obama, took this opportunity to visit Hanover. During the traditional tour of the trade show with Chancellor Angela Merkel, he was shown outstanding technical innovations.

On this occasion, Frank Stührenberg and Jack Nehlig demonstrated the new E-mobility fast charging plug to them at the Phoenix Contact booth. A special highlight: the DeLorean DMC-12 sports car from the film series "Back to the Future" was rebuilt to illustrate the subject of fast charging technology. President Obama was not only enthusiastic about the innovative charging technology. He also impressed the Chancellor and the Phoenix Contact CEO, Frank Stührenberg, with his film knowledge.

Hermes Award winner 2012  

Phoenix Contact wins the Hermes Award

Hermes Award winner

The god of trade and commerce has been represented at the Hannover Messe since its inception in 1947. He is the namesake for the Hermes Award, which has been awarded for highly innovative technologies as a part of the Hannover Messe opening ceremony since 2004 and has received plenty of press coverage.

The winner of the 2012 Hermes Award was the LM-S (Lightning Monitoring System) from Phoenix Contact. The innovative lightning monitoring system detects lightning currents in lightning conductors and displays the evaluation results on the Internet in real time. As such, the system enables continuous monitoring and rapid maintenance after a lightning strike.

The LM-S has been installed on the tallest building in the world since 2013: Phoenix Contact engineers climbed to the peak of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai to install the lightning protection monitoring system themselves. Since then the award winning system has been monitoring lighting currents at a height of almost 830 m.

The history of the Hannover Messe

Experience more than 70 years of Hannover Messe history.

The self-proclaimed motto of the largest industrial trade show in the world is "Tradition and Innovation". It was established in 1947 as the "Hannover Export Fair 1947" under the banner of the German company Deutsche Messe- und Ausstellungs-AG, Hannover-Laatzen. After the Second World War, the purpose of the new industrial trade show was to provide a counterpoint to the Leipzig Trade Fair in the former GDR, and emphasize the innovative power of West Germany.

As a venue for international contacts, the Hannover Messe quickly attracted attention from international guests. As early as 1950, there were exhibitors from ten different countries, one of these being the USA. Over the years, the trade show has become increasingly international. The first Hannover Messe partner country was Brazil in 1980. Since then, companies of a different country have presented their products ever year.

CeBIT (Centrum der Büro- und Informationstechnik - Center for Office and IT) developed into an independent trade show event in 1986 from the Hannover Messe Industrie, known in short as the "HMI". Today, CeBIT is the largest international trade show for information and communication technology. Particular focus is on products and solutions in the field of digitalization. The trade show for light and building technology – light+building – also emerged from the Hannover Messe. This is held every two years in Frankfurt.

Today, the leading trade show is the barometer for technological developments. The exhibition is currently dominated by subjects such as the Internet of Things, industrial digitalization, robotics and renewable energies. Over the next few years, numerous innovations for Industrie 4.0 – the digital industrial revolution – will be introduced, and will have their debut at the Hannover Messe.
