Conrad honoured to receive an award for 50 years of successful distribution partnership

Annette Schweizer-Leischner, Owner and Managing Director of ESKA ERICH SCHWEIZER GmbH and Dr. Werner Conrad, Owner and CEO of Conrad Electronic, attended the award ceremony.

The 50-year partnership between Conrad and ESKA was initiated in 1968 by Werner Conrad (the grandfather of the current managing director) and Erich Schweizer (father of the current managing director), and started originally with a range of about 100 different fuses. Since then, the partnership has developed across both generations and time. Today, ESKA sells 2,500 items via Conrad, and honours with this award the long-standing successful distribution partnership between the two companies.

“Conrad is one of the most important key accounts for ESKA today, and enjoys exclusivity for online distribution,” says Managing Director Annette Schweizer-Leischner, acknowledging the long-standing distribution partnership between the two companies. "Since the beginning of our partnership, Conrad has experienced rapid growth, and ESKA is proud to be a part of that success. Continuity, confidence, and innovation are the foundation of the next 50 years of this success story, just like the standard that was set by our fathers.”

“It is a great honour for us to receive this award, which not only confirms the success of our collaboration, but is also a sign that we have been able to satisfy the needs of our customers over the past 50 years with ESKA,” said Dr. Werner Conrad during the presentation of the award.

For more than 70 years, ESKA Erich Schweizer GmbH has been developing and manufacturing a trend-setting product range in the field of safety technology at its headquarters in Kassel under the quality label “Made in Germany”. At Conrad, the company offers innovative products for building services, green energy, photovoltaics, smart home, medical, white goods, consumer electronics and industrial applications (such as control and measurement).

ESKA DC Sicherung 5x20 mm News Juni 2016

ESKA DC-Sicherung News Juni 2016

DC-Sicherung 5x20 mm – Serie 522.600

DC-Sicherungsserie mit träger Charakteristik, 250VDC und 200A Schaltvermögen

Kassel, Juni 2016

In den letzten Jahren sind Anwendungen, die Gleichspannung benötigen, sprunghaft angestiegen. Immer mehr elektronische Geräte sind mit Netzteilen ausgestattet, die die in unseren Netzen übliche Wechselspannung in Gleichspannung umwandeln. Beispielhafte Geräte, die in nahezu jedem Haushalt zu finden sind, wären Ladestecker für Handy, Laptop & Co.. Aber auch außerhalb dieser Geräte wird immer mehr Gleichspannung eingesetzt.

Um im Falle eines Überstromes eine Gefahr für Leib und Leben abzuwenden, muss der Überstrom schnell und zuverlässig, meistens durch eine Geräteschutzsicherung, unterbrochen werden. Um den steigenden Anforderungen gerecht zu werden, hat ESKA eine träge Geräteschutzsicherung der gängigen Baugröße 5x20 mm für Gleichstromanwendungen entwickelt. Durch die Serie 522.600 können Überströme / Kurzschlüsse bis zu 200A bei einer Spannung von 250VDC sicher unterbrochen werden. In dieser Serie sind Sicherungen mit Nennströmen in einer Range von 100mA bis zu 10A erhältlich.

Unser Vertriebsteam freut sich auf Ihre Anfragen.
