New battery-powered generation of wireless foot controls

steute Meditec launched a new series of wireless foot controls for universal use in medical equipment. The user interfaces in this series are so energy-efficient that they can be powered using conventional batteries. At the same time, they achieve very high safety and availability levels.


Intelligent wireless sensor networks for logistics and industry

With sWave.NET®, steute presents the next logical step in the integration of switchgear in the industrial data landscape: In production environments designed according to the principles of Industry 4.0, sWave.NET® provides new possibilities.


Ex switchgear and sensors for -40 °C / -60 °C

Explosion protection, functional safety and adverse environments such as damp, cold or corrosive elements: some applications require truly specialist switchgear.


Systematic control switchgear

Standard and customised switchgear for machinery and process plants. Tried and tested electromechanical and non-contact technologies for classical applications in industrial automation and process control – always with a view to the latest global requirements.


Safe switchgear for complex and demanding applications

For more than fifty years we have been developing and manufacturing high-quality switchgear, sensors and control units for industrial automation, medical equipment and building automation. Our focus is on four business fields, all of which have their own particular demands: Wireless, Automation, Extreme, Meditec.

Our definition of “Extreme”

Heat, cold, damp, vibrations, corrosion: there are many ambient conditions which conventional switching devices are unable to cope with, even for short periods. For harsh environments such as these we have developed a range of switchgear able to withstand extreme conditions, even in the long term. These products have been so successful internationally that we decided to dedicate a whole business field to them. The name of this business field speaks for itself: “Extreme”.

  • Switchgear with special degree of protection
  • Switchgear for low temperatures
  • Switchgear for high temperatures
  • Switchgear in corrosion-proof design
  • Switchgear with high shock- and vibration resistance
  • Switchgear used in potentially explosive atmospheres
