Electronic pressure measurement with a building block system

Pressure is measured in many technical systems under very different conditions and with different requirements. As the number of needed electronic pressure transmitter variants continues to grow to meet these requirements, so does the significance of efficient on-demand production in small batches. To meet the needs of this trend with an economical solution Sensor-Technik Wiedemann (STW) is fully committed to a building block approach for pressure transmitter design and production.

STW at HMI / MobiliTec from April 7 until April 11, 2014

Sensor-Technik Wiedemann GmbH (STW) will display the measurement and sensor product range with various new highlights at Hannover Messe. For example the pressure transmitter F02 for safety related applications. It complies with the highly complex requirements of the new 2006/42/EG machinery guidelines. The F02 possesses the necessary properties required by the EN ISO 13849-1 and IEC 61508 standards for the compliance of functional safety. As a result, it is ideal for use in systems that require a pressure transmitter with a PLd Performance Level or a Safety Integrity Level of SIL2. Consistent with STW’s many years of experience in the mobile hydraulic applications sector, particular attention was paid to typical prevalent conditions such as vibrations, EMC requirements, thermal stress loads and protection against other external influences.

Electrification of Agricultural Machinery – the work of the AEF

The electrification of vehicles is pushing forward into every industry. Especially in the agricultural sector, electrification offers the possibility to address the challenges of the future. Ultimately increased yield from ever reduced areas is being driven by demographic developments. Keywords such as “precision farming” are indicators of the climbing requirements.

BAUMA 2013: STW presents a diesel electric hybrid excavator model

The powerMELA product family from Sensor-Technik Wiedemann GmbH (STW) expands further. The established powerMELA drive with 140 kW continuous power is now joined by the smaller 80 kW version. At Bauma 2013 the new 80 kW machine can be seen in action: it’s used to accelerate and brake the rotating platform of a model of a diesel electric hybrid excavator, in a novel interactive display. The recuperated brake energy is stored in a Lithium Ion battery, and made available for the acceleration phase of the operating cycle. The model demonstrates how the efficiency of a machine can be significantly increased, and thereby the fuel consumption reduced.

STW presents a ground-breaking drive solution at MobiliTec 2013

As part of the "MobiliTec" show, Sensor-Technik Wiedemann GmbH (STW) is presenting a pioneering electric drive for commercial vehicles, buses and mobile machinery. STW’s permanent magnet synchronous machine powerMELA C, with 140 kW continuous power, is combined with a three-speed dual-clutch transmission to meet a wide range of drive requirements. The combination drive is lightweight, uniquely compact and operates in all modes at the optimal efficiency, with high starting torque and top end speed. Shifting without interruption of traction fits well to the characteristics of the electric drive, and enhances the driving performance and comfort. The drive solution has been realised by STW in cooperation with the Canadian transmission specialists Kinetic Drive Solutions, and has already proven itself in practice.

STW recently honored
