The Sensor-Technik Wiedemann GmbH specializes in the automation and digitalization of mobile machinery such as agricultural, construction or municipal machines.

Easy Engineering: What are the main areas of activity of the company?

Sensor-Technik: Our main hardware products are controllers in different sizes and edge computers with integrated telematics, enabling all kinds of interfaces, both wireless and non-wireless. We are known for our reliable, flexible and robust electronic platform enabling long machine uptime for the end-user. 

E.E: What’s the news about new products?

Sensor-Technik: We recently launched our new controller ESX.4cs-gw. As a gateway controller it connects various components and functional areas of mobile machines via different communication paths (CAN, Ethernet, LIN), making all data available in a bundled form and thus providing an overview in increasingly complex systems. 

E.E: What are the ranges of products?

Sensor-Technik: In addition to our high performance controllers, sensors and communication solutions, we have a deep software knowledge. The result is consistent solution that enables our customers to develop a proper machine architecture. We are experts in functional safety, one of the main aspects in the engineering of mobile machines that are driving and working increasingly autonomous. 

E.E: What can you tell us about market trends?

Sensor-Technik: Mobile Machines have to work increasingly autonomous and effective. There is a huge demand for smart products which are necessary to engineer assistance systems or automate processes. With our products, we enable smart and precision farming, smart construction sites or autonomous driven machines which is really of sustainable value to the world. This kind of farming needs less water, herbicides or pesticides, and offers better usage of fields. We allow machine-to-machine, machine-to-human and machine-to-cloud communication. With our technology and know-how, we contribute to a more sustainable farming and efficient construction sector. 

E.E: What are the most innovative products marketed?

Sensor-Technik: Our products belong to the most innovative solutions on the global market. Our approach sees proven technologies from automotive, commercial or industrial automation being transformed to perform in mobile machines. We adjust these technologies to the requirements of our market: We engineer and produce reliable high performance electronics for the harshest environments. Our products have to withstand extreme heat and cold, vibration, dirt and chemicals used in fertilizers, for instance. 

E.E: What estimations do you have for 2022?

Sensor-Technik: With our focus on automation and digitalization solutions we provide core components of modern mobile machinery. Thus, our controllers, sensors and communication solutions are in high demand which leads to a very positive estimate for this year and an even brighter outlook for the upcoming year. Additionally, we are striving to grow on an international scale. We will exhibit at the leading trade fairs in 2022, Agritechnica and bauma, to push our claim as one of the leading global innovators. We expect that these exhibitions will lead to even greater demand, especially for innovation driven products like ours.
