“Scoring top marks with proven strengths”

Dr Timo Berger, Head of the Electronic Interfaces Division, explains how u-remote is contributing to simplified machine automation with maximum performance


WIN! Weidmüller affirms that u-remote is geared exclusively towards benefits for the user. How do you deliver on this promise?

Berger: Firstly, we have been at home in the area we have identified for our remote I/O systems, namely machine construction, for decades now. u-remote integrates directly in our core cabinet portfolio and is scoring top marks with proven strengths that have already allowed us to help our customers achieve success. We also conducted an extensive market analysis, which enabled us to identify four important requirements: our customers want tailored planning, faster installation, safer startup and minimised downtimes. We have concentrated on precisely these requirements and consistently geared u-remote’s properties to precisely meet these requirements.

WIN! Against this backdrop, which features set u-remote apart from other remote I/O systems?
Berger: The distinction lies in the fact that our system exploits installation space and is easy to use, commission and service. With details such as optionally pre-assembled PUSH IN connectors, conductormounted channel LEDs, exchangeable electronics, or the various coding options, we offer benefits in an area which Weidmüller is known for: user-friendly and smart housing and connection systems. u-remote also boasts outstanding “inner values”, such as our two highly durable 10 A current paths or the integrated web server featuring diagnostic functions.
WIN! Which additional support services can u-remote customers expect from Weidmüller?
Berger: We consistently pursue the goal of guaranteeing our customers optimum integration in their automation environments and automation of their machines and systems to make them noticeably more powerful. From the software tool for simple configuration and placing of product orders, to the onsite technical troubleshooting service, we are on hand to provide our customers with appropriate assistance and a wide range of support services.

WIN! The u-remote system is a solution for the IP 20 world inside cabinets. How does Weidmüller cover needs in the field?

Berger: We have been successful on the market with our versatile IP 67 remote I/O system SAI Active for many years now. In combination with u- remote, we are therefore now offering two perfectly coordinated systems for both protection classes – for the best connections from the cabinet to the field.
