Construction

ExcavatorUse of electronics in the construction industry not only presents opportunities for efficiency gains, but also offers the ability to re-engineer and simplify the operator interface of the machine. The addition of electronics and intelligence to these machines will dramatically improve operator ease of use. This in turn increases machine productivity and the comfort and safety of the operator and the construction crew.

Our products are built to be reliable even in tough environmental conditions. STW performs full quality testing of every single device that it manufactures, consisting of automated optical inspection, a full in-circuit test and complete functional testing done at normal temperatures and then again in temperature chambers at extreme cold (-40º) and extreme hot (+85 ºC). Quality control and reliability are the hallmarks of German engineering and manufacturing.

The ESX, and soon the ESX-3XL/3XM controllers, are designed to meet the rigorous requirements for Safety Integrity Level (SIL) 2 based on the IEC61508 standard.

While ruggedness, safety and reliability are prerequisites for the use of electronics and peripherals in the construction industry, the flexibility of our products offers you the ability to tailor the electronics to your exact requirements in the field.

STW has a unique controller architecture that uses baby boards (expansion boards) that allow you to expand your I/O and memory to your exact requirements.  STW controllers are freely programmable which offer you the option to design and build the system according to your needs

Our Telematics module allows you to remotely monitor your fleet of construction vehicles, schedule maintenance and/or perform remote diagnostics. Along with our displays and joysticks, it also goes a long way in increasing operator safety and reliability.  Moreover, careful monitoring, diagnostics and servicing will certainly extend the lifetime of the equipment.
