material enclosures for industrial control.
- Recognition as leader in manufacturing and
calibration technology used in the production of
bimetallic overload relays.
- 1930's: Introduction of the revolutionary
concept "lifespan of electrical switching
devices to equal the lifespan of the connected
equipment", which led to the creation of IEC
- Development of the world's first manual
motor protector, type PKZM.
- 1940's: Development of Androit insulating
material for motor control enclosures.
