From the automotive industry to wind farms, system planners and operators are increasingly relying on modular concepts. In order to implement these concepts, they need decentralized, adaptable solutions that cover a wide range of functions. Ideally, it should be possible to expand existing systems in the same way, without costly, time-consuming redevelopment.

The solution is to make well-established control cabinet functions such as feed-in, switching, protection and monitoring fit for use in the field. With the Field Power® system, you can implement decentralized system and automation concepts that are future-proof and economical. The versatile module facilitates the transformation of IP20 into IP65.

Detectable Marking Systems for food production Product innovation

Weidmuller offer you detectable marking solutions for the MutiCard and the MultiMark family.

Thanks to a metallic filling material, our detectable markers are identifiable by metal and X-ray detectors. Identification minimizes the risk of contamination during the food production process.
Markers maximize safety thanks to properties such as corrosion resistance and aging resistance against UV radiation and heat. We regularly check and confirm these properties in our accredited laboratory.

Detectable Marking Systems for food production
Your special benefits
  • Detectable by metal and X-ray detectors
  • Visually recognizable by blue color
  • Corrosion resistant metallic filler
  • Clear and resistant print image
  • Available in different versions for a wide variety of marking requirements
