High availability in the automotive industry

The automotive industry

The automotive industry is one of the driving forces behind the overall economy in Amerika. Any production downtime must be prevented at all costs. Potential electrical faults must be recognized early in order to prevent the system shutting down. Bender fault current monitoring devices or Bender ISOMETER®s master this role excellently and comply with all the necessary standards.
