military equipmentOne of the most crucial roles for electronics in mobile military vehicles is in saving lives and preventing accidents. Given the urgent and critical nature of work, it is essential that everything works dependably, even when exposed to extreme environmental conditions.

STW understands that safety, reliability and the ability to work well in harsh conditions is crucial to military applications. 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 (-40ºC) and extreme hot (+85 ºC).

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.

STW freely programmable controllers offer high flexibility. STW has a unique controller architecture that allows you to expand your I/O and memory to exact requirements.  Within the controller enclosure, expansion boards (called ‘baby boards’) may be added to customize a controller.  This flexible architecture provides an immense range of options for the control design, improves cost efficiency, minimizes extra wiring and connections, and keeps all of the electronics in a single, protected enclosure..
