  • Programming of assembled products
  • Electrical and functional testing
  • Run in and burn in
  • Verification of special parameters of interfaces using reference measurement equipment
  • Tektronix WFM8000 series waveform monitors and analyzers available (24/7)
  • Mechanical assembly
  • EMC conformance testing




In case of special requirements ... full custom product design

Based on our standard products, we are offering customization of these on software as well on hardware level. If this still does not allow to integrate all required features or functionalities, we offer to specifiy and develop full custom solutions.

Please contact us if you have very specific requirements or if you need a finished product we do not have in our line up. Our experienced engineers and project managers will be happy to discuss how to make your product happen.

All planning and engineering work as well as testing is done in Germany. Manufacturing subcontractors we work with are located within Germany and other countries.
