Handover of an electromobile to Beck GmbH Druckkontrolltechnik in Steinenbronn
To further pursue its policy to reach the ecological and economic goals of the company, Beck from Steinenbronn is taking part in the "Get eReady" research project. Other participants are, for example, the Fraunhofer Institute, Bosch and Elektro-Heldele GmbH in Göppingen. This project is supported by the land of Baden-Württemberg. Under "Get eReady", the electric potentials of electromobiles are being investigated by intelligent networking of electromobility services.
Thinking ahead, Beck was already taking into consideration this forward-looking technology when it established an extension building last year by having a power charging station installed at its company car park. Whether company staff members or external users, it is accessible to anyone who has a corresponding authorization card.
After thorough market analyses, Beck GmbH has decided to buy a BMW i3, the first BMW-made series-production electric vehicle that has a system power of 125 kW and a "consumption" of some 15 kWh per 100 km. The running "costs" per 100 km are about EUR 0.98. In addition to its electric motor, this compact four-seater has a small combustion engine that considerably increases the vehicle's range. And all this at a low annual vehicle tax rate of around EUR 14.
This brand new car was handed over at our premises by Mr. Nicolai Klemm from the BMW Branch Office in Stuttgart on Tuesday, 27 May, 2014.
The new electric vehicle is intended as an internal pool car to be used by staff members for both shorter work-related trips and for medium-range business travels. By taking this measure, Beck's management hope to be able to drastically reduce the company's fleet in order to cut vehicle costs.
New differential pressure transmitter model 982R for original equipment manufacturers
At the Mostra Convegno Expocomfort exhibition held in Milan in March 2014, we presented a new differential pressure transmitter model 982R for monitoring low air pressures. This differential pressure transmitter has primarily been developed for OEM customers, with the focus on ventilation equipment manufacturers.
The 982R is a differential pressure transmitter that has been reduced to essential functions in order to sell it at a lowest possible price.
Ventilation equipment manufacturers know very well the technical specifications of the components to be used in the products they make and are aware of what measuring range and what output signal are necessary for this purpose.
Beck manufactures and supplies the 982R differential pressure transmitter exactly in conformity with these requirements concerning both the measuring range and the output signal. Just the signal attenuation can be subsequently adjusted locally. Complex selection functions on the product have been omitted so that the pressure transmitter will be ready for instant installation at the customer's production line.
The 982R comes exclusively in OEM packages containing 100 items per carton. This is similar to the 930.8x Climair® OEM differential pressure transmitters that are supplied in lots of 45 pieces per carton.
First samples for certain measuring ranges are already available, while series production for any other measuring ranges will be started by late May 2014.
