PROTECTION AND EMBEDMENT

Optimum protection for every application. Whether impregnation, treatment or socketing: Benefit from more than 40 years of experience in the application of these technologies.

(Vacuum) cast: Polyurethane, epoxide, silicone, ...

(Vacuum) impregnation: Alkyd resins, polyester imide resins, epoxide, ...

Pre-treatment techniques: Degreasing, sandblasting, plasma activation, ...

Parameter inspection

In order to maintain a reproducible quality, all components are distinguished by their electrical values during sampling and examined during the series production. The measurement conditions are adjusted to the respective deployment conditions and co-ordinated with the customer.

Classic measurement methods: Resistance, inductivity, leakage inductance, transmission ratio, capacity, resonance frequency, group delay, ...

Low-level parameters: Insertion loss, return loss, ...

Measurement in customer application: e.g. sensor calibration (speed, pressure, magnetic field)

100% safety inspection

Not only the obligatory insulation test is carried out on all components. According to the requirements and after consultation we carry out a whole series of safety inspections on the component in order to guarantee the reliability and longevity of your component.

High-voltage inspection: DC voltage up to 30 kV, AC voltage up to 5 kV
