Energy & Drives

Let us develop your product! From the moment your idea is born all the way to production!

As providers of development services, we design your turnkey drive and energy storage systems and develop complete devices including all electronic components, firmware and the appropriate housing. Our stable and mature development processes enable the highest quality and on-schedule delivery of your development results.

Engineering Services

Projects

  • Development of efficient and highly robust system solutions in energy and drive technology - even under extreme environmental conditions
  • Design, development and verification of functionally safe drive systems and subsystem components 
  • Development of drive test benches for type and series tests in production
  • Accompaniment of product certification

Engineering Services

  • Specification, design, development and qualification of electrical energy storage modules and uninterruptible power supplies (UPS)
  • Design of electrical drive systems and optimization of control structures based on simulations with MATLAB® and Simulink®
  • Development, verification and qualification of performance and safety functions of electromechanical systems in our in-house laboratory
  • Performance of endurance tests (24h/7d) under defined environmental conditions

Series production and the product life cycle

  • Once development has been completed, we expertly adjust your production - or that of an EMS - and support your product throughout its entire life cycle.
  • We take the pressure off your team by providing competent support for your successful brand-name products.
  • In the event that components are discontinued, we can help you revise your products.

Developed Products

Drive systems

We are specialised in the design and optimization of robust turnkey drive systems up to 100 KW.

  • Intelligent power electronics to maximise system efficiency and minimise electrical grid perturbation
  • Ultracapacitor modules to reduce load and electrical network costs
  • Customized real-time fieldbus systems with advanced features in challenging environments
  • Safety functions for drive systems such as
    • STO, SBC, SS1, SLP, SLS
    • Safe movement to a safe position (emergency run)
    • Customer-specific safety functions
  • Servocontroller for the control of electric drives
  • AC motors: permanent magnets, IPM servo machines, reluctance motors, asynchronous motors
  • DC motors: series, shunt, compound machines
