Schlüter Automation & Sensor GmbH: History & expertise
In 1967 Lothar Schlüter, father of the current managing director Jens Schlüter, and still active in the company, founded Lothar Schlüter KG an industrial agency in Lehrte near Hanover, the then Lothar Schlüter KG, was at the forefront in the sensor business, already selling optical and inductive sensors.
As early as 1977, Lothar Schlüter and his colleagues at the time developed the first photo sensor in the M30 housing. Shortly afterwards, the first fiber optics were installed on the devices. This resulted in the Photo Sensor Universal System, or U-System for short, in 1981, which made the use of fiber optics and photo sensors even easier and more flexible. These fiber optics enable the use of high-performance photo sensors as reflex scanners or one-way light barriers, even in hard-to-reach places or under difficult environmental conditions such as heat, pressure, dust, fog, dirt, moisture, etc. Thanks to its high performance and flexible application options, the U-System quickly established itself on the market.
In the course of time, the production and delivery program was expediently expanded and supplemented with many components from the field of sensor technology. This is how Schlüter produces and supplies many innovative products that are unique on the market. For example, inductive sensors that work up to + 250 ° C, special light barriers for industrial ovens or capacitive special sensors for a wide variety of applications. Many products have been and are specially developed for customer-specific requirements and applications.
We at Wind Cluster, together with the experience and expertise of Schlüter, are looking forward to helping YOU find the best product for your specific needs.
At Wind Cluster we are proud to boast a vast range of products for the wind power industry, for many different applications, for use on small private owned turbines to large leading OEM windfarms. By creating lasting partnerships and distributing products for companies such as Schlüter Automation & Sensor GmbH we can not only offer the parts, but also the knowledge and expertise which accompany them.
