SEMEX-EngCon and Rutronik24: precision and reliability

  Newsletter Article

SEMEX-EngCon GmbH was founded in 2014 with the aim of supplying high-quality solutions for a wide range of tasks in the area of seismic monitoring and vibration measurements. SEMEX-EngCon is based in Ettlingen, where it oversees development, production, sales, and customer service.

Application areas include short-term monitoring of construction sites, permanent monitoring of critical structures such as bridges, dams, and wind turbines, and early detection of seismic activity.

The compact measurement system known as MENHIR™ (Modular ENHanced Intelligent Recorder) consists of highly sensitive speed and acceleration sensors, real-time signal processing, data classification, and extensive wireless communication interfaces for flexible device linking and data communication. SmartDataCenter™, an intuitive cloud-based application, completes the package.

The particular challenge lies in producing a compact device capable of housing the various functions, such as the highly sensitive analogue sensors together with very low-noise analogue preprocessing, digital real-time signal processing, built-in USP, and simultaneously operating wireless transmission methods. Furthermore, MENHIR also has to take precise and reliable measurements in very harsh environments.

The wide-ranging demands in relation to the electronics call for a competent and reliable partnership with suppliers of parts and components. “SEMEX-EngCon has found the perfect partner in Rutronik24,” says Herbert Tropschug, managing director and head of purchasing. “The extensive product portfolio and the fast and efficient service at Rutronik24 are key requirements for our successful business model. We really appreciate the extraordinary customer focus of Rutronik24 and will continue to work very closely alongside the company.”
