WAGO particularly wishes to employ engineers interested in helping to develop products and solutions for the future of the market. One of the main issues for WAGO developers for the future is the efficient use of energy, both within the company and in custom customer solutions.
Both of the production locations in Minden and Sonderhausen in Germany are certified according to the international standard for Energy Management Systems DIN EN ISO 50001.
TÜV Süd auditors charged with certification have confirmed not only the successful start of the energy management system, but also the high awareness of WAGO employees on energy efficiency.
The company relies on production technologies for innovative energy savings. Among other things, the savings potential is used efficiently in the building technologies with its heat recovery, modern building technology concept.
We are certified with ISO 50001 in Energy Management
The new brain team was completed by 250 R&D employees at the Minden location made by WAGO and equipped with intelligent building automation. Energy consumption here is 15% below the rate required by EnEV (German Energy Saving Regulation). High standards for energy efficiency in Germany are also applied internationally.
For energy management, which is one of the common duties of WAGO, a special department and an exchange of experience across the entire area are important.
The importance of energy efficiency for all industrial applications emerges in many international projects of WAGO.
That is why WAGO customer, together with BMW, sets the standards for reducing energy consumption for lighting. A new lighting design has been used in the production lines of the Bavarian car manufacturer, since the end of 2009, which reduces the energy use required for lighting by approximately 30%.
The Ethernet controller of WAGO I/O SYSTEM 750, which forms the basis for this lighting system design, is placed in the switch cabinets of the production building, together with its various bus modules.
WAGO Lighting Distribution Cabinets standardized by BMW have proven themselves in a wide range of companies, with more than 100 installations.
As a partner of the industry, WAGO’s unique, complete solutions guarantee great efficiency in production. In industrial production, in addition to energy costs, the efficiency of the system is an important parameter. Here, WAGO offers unique, complete solutions.
Recently, WAGO has developed a customer-oriented, complete solution that analyzes system efficiency in detail for a globally active customer in the food industry. In addition to hardware such as the ETHERNET controller and control panel, this system also includes software program, evaluation charts and files for data logging.
The use of WAGO technology enables automated productivity measurement in accordance with 6 SIGMA quality management systems.
As a partner of the industry, WAGO’s philosophy to offer solutions for the specific needs of the customer has also emerged in the project of an international chemical and pharmaceutical company. WAGO has designed and implemented a customer-oriented system for the company’s product data recording system, distributed in approximately 100 locations and 30 countries.
WAGO’s OPORT system boards record all production data, including downtimes and export quantities worldwide, and quickly transmit this data to the firm’s database over the intranet. Ready-made OPORT system panels can be revised rapidly and easily technologically compared to existing production systems.
