The integrated operating theatre

The dynamic integration of medical equipment - or, at the user level, the interoperability of user interfaces - is one of the development goals of the initiative OR.NET e.V., to which steute Meditec is commited as an associated partner.


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
