Matching the Best Sensor Solution

The sensor market is booming. More and more devices include sensors to collect information about the operating conditions and the environment. Accordingly, the range of different models is large. Choosing the right sensor for your own application is difficult. These tips provide a guideline.

Components for the Connected Home

For Haus und Elektronik 2/2019, our product managers Dalibor Bacic and Andreas Haas present important electronic components for connected homes. In the article, the product managers describe the advantages of different sensors, antennas and electronic components in the smart home. Particular attention is paid to the requirements of miniaturization and wireless data transmission. To the article (in German).

How to Simplify Wiring and Cabling

In the article for the Elektronik Journal 02/2019 we illustrate how a suitable selection of components and sensors leads to a simplification of cabling and wiring in industrial automation. Solution packages consisting of sensors, connectors, cables, distribution boxes and software modules assist to activate actuators. How does it work? Read on (in German).

Five Challenges For Hi-Rel Connectors

When it comes to greater safety, reliability and ruggedness, connectors have to overcome five main challenges. Which ones? Our Division Manager Mil / Aero Matthias Oettl explains them in his article for the Electronic Industry magazine. (in German)

Martin Kent Gives an Outlook for 2019

"We will launch an expansion program for the Eastern European countries in early 2019. "Martin Kent, President of Asia and Europe, has been looking ahead. The managing director predicts an exciting time for Heilind in the coming year.

The company is well positioned and the Heilind brand has been strengthened in recent months through targeted marketing activities. "Heilind has also invested in its infrastructure," explains Kent in an interview with "Markt & Technik". Read in the interview what challenges await the specialty distributor and what opportunities there are in the future.

The whole statement you find here. (in German)

Space Saving Connections

Hybrid connectors accommodate up to 7000 contacts. For developers, they are especially interesting when there is a lack of space. Some hybrid connectors are offered with fixed layout and contacts for power and signal transmission; other connectors are modular and allow variable combination of contacts. The performance data are also very different. Heilind distributes hybrid connectors from several manufacturers and advises on a customer-specific basis, as Team Leader Product Management Stefan Schumacher reports in the article with Elektronik Industrie.

Global partnership with Harting

At the Electronica 2018 Harting and Heilind have published their global partnership. The HARTING Technology Group is one of the world's leading providers of industrial interconnection technology for the three lifelines Data, Signal and Power with 13 production sites and branches in 44 countries. In addition, the company also provides retail point of sale, electromagnetic actuators for automotive and industrial mass production, charging equipment for electric vehicles, and hardware and software for customers and applications. a. in automation technology, mechanical and plant engineering, robotics and Transportation to press release. (in German)

How to find the right sensor!

"From the user's point of view, there are a number of challenges when selecting and purchasing sensors." At Heilind, the focus is on sensors. We see three major trends in sensors: the lowest possible energy consumption, a combination of several sensors in one application, and greater integration of sensors into complete functional sequences.

Read in an interview with Dalibor Bacic, Product Manager Sensors, how Heilind can help you with your sensor search.

New: 780 Molex FCT items on stock

Heilind has built up an extensive inventory of hood, connectors and contacts / tools for the FCT product range and can be delivered immediately. All articles can be ordered from Heilind starting from a piece without minimum order value (in German) and without minimum order quantity.

Heilind also offers technical advice and design-in for the FCT products. Additional services are i.a. Prototype sampling, rewinding of contacts onto smaller packaging units, specific subcontract printing of case, fuse and barcode labels as well as high temperature and traceability labeling.

That´s how it goes through the connector jungle

Much is changing in the component manufacturers. Direct deliveries are increasingly restricted to a few major customers. For others, the minimum order quantities are drastically increased. »These are additional uncertainties for our customers. The market, on the other hand, must become more reliable again. For example, nobody wants to order a 10,000-piece large package if they only need 800 components. That is why we as a distributor continue to expand our services. We continue to guarantee our customers that they only need to take the quantities they really need, "he said Division Manager Indsutrial Stefan Barrig in a technical article in Markt & Technik Q3/2018. (in German)

Smart Metering

The data transmission for the measuring devices required in smart grid solutions can i.a. via the already laid power cable. An important role is played by signal relays, which switch on the data connection. Why Germany lags behind in the installation of intelligent digital electricity meters, reveals our product Manager Electromechanics Andreas Haas (in German) in the journal Electronics.

Military connectors for harsh environments

The rise of systems such as robots or autonomous vehicles is driving demand for robust, resilient connectors that can easily cope with the demands of harsh environments. These systems not only have to be resistant to moisture and dirt, but also have to be resistant to corrosion.

Actuators for building automation

As the energy supply changes, so does the way in which regenerative energy is used. A special example, which is also accompanied by technical developments in other areas, is home automation or the "intelligent" building. This is favored by the trend towards networking and the operation with smartphones and the associated comfort gain.
