STW pressure transmitter F02 now with PLd and SIL2 approval

December 20, 2016

With the F02, Sensor-Technik Wiedemann GmbH (STW) presents a pressure transmitter which has been developed according to the requirements laid down in the standards EN 13849-1 and IEC 61508, and which has been certified by TÜV Saar. In combination with a suitable control unit, the F02 has Performance Level d (PLd) and Safety Integrity Level 2 (SIL2). One special feature of the F02 is its compact construction with a wrench size of 22mm and a total length of approx. 50mm. It is suitable for a pressure range of 10 to 1000 bar and has 2 inverted 4-20mA outputs which ensure that not only the signal itself can be monitored, but also the transmission path from the transmitter to the control unit. The two output signals must be monitored and evaluated by a corresponding control unit (e.g. the ESX-3XL). The F02 has been specially developed for use in mobile machines and has an E1 approval.

Innovation prize awarded to STW by BOMAG

August 4, 2016

At the end of June, the Kaufbeuren-based company Sensor-Technik Wiedemann (STW) was awarded for its force of innovation by BOMAG, the international market leaders in the compaction technology sector, at the Ehrenburg near Brodenbach. For over 20 years now, STW has supplied control units, I/O modules, sensors and operating and display elements in a mixture of standard products and customer-specific systems to BOMAG. In particular the readiness of STW to always strike out on new paths in the development and adaptation of the products has convinced BOMAG. STW was also able to reliably implement the appropriate requirements on the robustness of the solutions. STW received the award for the collaborative development of the “Economizer”. The “Economizer” is a display unit for compaction conditions which links and assesses the sensor data using specially-developed algorithms. The most recent orientation of STW regarding the support of data management and connectivity with innovative on-board modules and associated cloud services has also impressed the company. Along with the A-supplier of the Year 2016 certificate, the Innovation Award was handed over to Sonja Wiedemann, Managing Director of STW, and Sales Manager Klaus Gnahm, by Timo Löw, Head of Electrical Engineering, Jens Gick, Manager Global Purchasing, and Oliver Michel, Commodity Manager Electricals.
