(Customer Under Voltage, NLQ4/16) Once again, we would like to introduce you to a market leader, whose confidence in us we are also a little proud of – especially as it was a customer-specific development project. As next generation devices and machinery demand increased precision and quality requirements, GES can score as one of the very view connector manufacturers still actively developing customized and application-specific high voltage connectors. And we are pleased to be able to count IMS Messsysteme GmbH among our customers…

IMS was founded in 1980 and today  is one of the world's leading manufacturers of X-ray, isotope and optical measuring systems for thickness measurement in the steel, metal and aluminum industries. The measuring systems are used for material testing, as they continuously and contactless detect the dimensions of steel and aluminum strips, sheets and tubes under the most severe production conditions. This increases the quality of the products, optimizes the production facilities and lowers the production costs.

IMS currently employs 450 people at 11 locations on five continents. Innovation drivers are precision, speed and reproducibility; The result are reliable, robust measuring systems, which mean sustainable success for customers and are trend-setting innovation for technology worldwide.

The production of such high-precision measuring technology also requires a high quality awareness down to the smallest component - this of course also applies to the high-voltage connectors used. The company was looking for a small, two-pole HV connector that performs consistently and reliably despite the very harsh production conditions of the metal industry, such as high degrees of pollution and high ambient temperatures, as well as radiation loads within the machinery.

With regard to the special operating conditions, GES was commissioned with a development project. The result was a tailored HV connector according to protection class IP65 that is now part of IMS systems for precision measurement and the detection of semifinished metal products worldwide.
