Changes such as digitalisation and electromobility demand from the automotive industry and its applications ever more effective contact-making solutions. Quickly detachable but reliable electrical contacts under diverse ambient conditions, plug-in connections for wiring harnesses, etc., are just a few examples of the requirements for contact pins and electrical connection systems.
Compact design and resistance to vibration are further preconditions for PCB terminal blocks and PCB multi-connectors. These properties enable them, for example, to be used in the power electronics of e-cars and charging stations carrying high currents reliably and without difficulty. Micro-switches, thanks to their minimal space requirements, high service-life and robust construction, are reliable components for use, for example, in door elements in automotive engineering. In charging systems, we supply electrically optimised transformers and chokes.
Solutions for rail-safety technologies, such as automatic control and monitoring of level crossings, for example, the electrification of point systems and digital remote access to signalling centres are needed in the field of rail-system automation. Here, the contact-making solutions must meet the requirements encountered under extreme ambient conditions (vibration resistance / high currents / fouling), among other things.
In all these fields, new challenges to test equipment for the inspection of electrical and electronic connections must be mastered and PTR HARTMANN GmbH's test probes provide, with their many diverse grid pitches and applications, not only high quality and service-life but also a rich and varied spectrum of types.
