›› LOGICALLY ELECTRIC – E-MOBILITY WITH REO
Electricity is what makes REO tick. We believe it is the future of mobility. Whether powered by hydrogen, battery or other forms of energy, the electric motor is the basis for the future of mobility. So, it is essential that the highest safety standards are adhered to, wherever electricity is flowing. REO’s engineers have made it their responsibility to develop safe test systems for the entire value chain of e-mobility, using the best components in doing so.
“We recognized at an early stage the change in social awareness and resulting potential in the field of e-mobility. As a result, our investment in research and development work in this area is now paying dividends. We offer a unique product portfolio globally with our intelligent and smart test systems that can be used in almost any area of e-mobility.”Jasminka Usein
With the ongoing move towards electrification, REO has combined its strengths in the production of inductive, resistive and electronic components to provide a cohesive and unique offering in the market, while many providers are forced to purchase technologies, REO can rely on more than 95 years of experience, thus affirming its innovative in-house capability, and particularly so in cases where sophisticated, turn-key test systems are required.
›› THINKING AHEAD – TEST SYSTEMS FOR E-MOBILITY
Whether it is a charging station, wall box or home charging station, any charging solution will need to fulfil stringent requirements before it is launched onto the market. To test these systems, REO is able to provide reliable solutions for charging systems that comply with stringent certification requirements, which can be used in private as well as commercial and public applications. It is of course vital that tests are also carried out on the link and connectivity between the charging system and any vehicle. This typically involves plug connectors (Type 1 and Type 2 plugs, etc.) and socket combinations under international standards for trade, construction, and industry. REO’s test systems allow providers of connectivity and e-mobility charging solutions to configure and test all mains voltages commonly found at home and abroad. A good example of this is the REOLAB 330 three-phase AC supply voltage system, a popular choice for many customers, the system typically consists of a power unit, which may be installed in a switch room, for example, and the mobile and ergonomic REO PowerFormer controller with its 9“ touch screen panel, enabling flexible and rapid testing without taking up a huge amount of space in the laboratory.
›› DIGITISATION AND CONNECTIVITY “MADE IN GERMANY”
New production methods require modern technology. As a result, networking and digitization are right at the very top of the specification for new equipment. A variety of REO test systems come with Ethernet interfaces as standard, enabling centralised control of the test device outside of the local test environment. Control commands, measured values and responses can then be consolidated externally. The technology involved is developing at an ever-quicker pace. Our aim is not merely to satisfy the state of the art, but to shape it. As part of the REO Group, REO Digital Connect 4.0’s primary task in this regard is to develop new interfaces for the production processes of the future.
