Panasonic speakers focusing on high power switching, elementary and semiconductor relays

Anwenderforum Relaistechnik review hero

From arcing to the AC-DC shift in relevance: On 25th and 26th October, 78 participants representing key industries such as building automation, energy, industrial automation & transportation joined – personally or virtually - this year’s Anwenderforum Relaistechnik at the Vogel Convention Center in Würzburg. Two days, entirely dedicated to provide an all-around view on trending topics in relay technology with a particular focus on elementary relay basics, DC and heavy mobility applications.

Amongst other relay experts from industry and research, three speakers valuably contributed to the forum’s agenda:

Christoph Oehler co-hosted two seminar blocks on the characteristics, specs, and usage conditions of elementary relays - definitely more than a refresher course on the most important physical aspects and behavioral parameters of conventional relays. Dr. Dieter Volm focused on a modern and proven alternative for many contemporary applications: He traced the story of semiconductor relays and provided the audience with plenty of know-how on function and specs of solid state/MOSFET relays. Last but not least, Claudiu Ciobotaru spotlighted on next-gen energy generation and storage systems, respectively industrial DC grids – and the corresponding requirements on high-power relay technology.

At the end, the participants agreed that the presentations and discussions had drawn a comprehensive picture of the state-of-the-art relay technology available for modern applications in a wide field of industries – and appreciated the mutual willingness to share knowledge for being able to offer the market ever better, ever more reliable and ever more efficient relay solutions.
