Celebration Time – INDUSTRONIC’s Christmas Party

This year’s Christmas Party took place at the premises of the Hotel “Zur Schönen Aussicht” in Marktheidenfeld. Almost 150 people followed the invitation of President Wolfgang Stallmeyer to celebrate the successful business year and the start of the festive season.

After the champagne reception, Mr. Stallmeyer welcomed all employees with a speech. Next on the agenda was the farewell of our retirees and the honouring of our long-standing employees of which we are very proud. This year sees 11 employees celebrating 10 years of service, 2 employees with 25 years and 2 employees who have been working for INDUSTRONIC for even 45 years! What an achievement. We value their loyalty and commitment throughout the years and are looking forward to many more.

The all-time favorite of the yearly programme was again the INDUSTRONIC Christmas choir where all new employees sang Christmas carols for the rest of the staff.

The kitchen of the hotel spoiled us with a tasty menu starting with an appetizer plate, followed by a rich buffet with pork tenderloin in a herb coat, sautéed fjord salmon, roast venison and other treats. There was something for everyone. The selection of various desserts and the cheese platter as late-night snack rounded off the dinner.

After the dinner, some colleagues arranged a quiz with funny questions about INDUSTRONIC and Christmas where the different teams could demonstrate their knowledge. Later in the evening, a DJ played music to get the guests dancing.

This festive party was a big success with unforgettable moments and lots of fun. We want to thank our host for this wonderful evening, the excellent service and the delicious food!

Partner Training 2018 at INDUSTRONIC Singapore

In September, Steffen Sebold, a trainer from our Technical Support Center, travelled to our subsidiary in Singapore to make our partners from the Asian-Pacific region familiar with product enhancements and new products from INDUSTRONIC.

Mr. Bobby Tay, Director of INDUSTRONIC Singapore welcomed our partners from Indonesia, Malaysia and INDUSTRONIC Beijing at his premises. On 5 days, they received hands-on training, for example, on the following topics:

  • New functions of the DXC version 7.0.0
    • IAP – internal audio processing function
    • IP system gateway
    • Monitoring of Moxa switches via Modbus/TCP
  • DUSTRON – Our industrial communication app
  • Config Manager 4.6.0
  • New power supply systems: PSC, PSE, PSG
  • Network redundancy and audio synchronization with the NPA

Besides these topics, the participants also learned how to upgrade older systems to INTRON-D plus in an intensive workshop.

The evening activities after the training were also enjoyable for all participants. After dinner at Mount Faber Cable Car Station, the group visited Sentosa Island at night, a man-made island with a variety of attractions, located south of the Singapore’s city center. A Singapore Zoo boat trip and common lunch in Chinatown was a great finish to this fruitful training week.

Thanks to the 5-day intensive training, all participants have learned a great deal about the new features and products from INDUSTRONIC and how to use them in their daily work and to give the best possible support to their customers. It would be great to plan such an event again next year.

Gaining a Great Deal of Practical Experience – My Apprenticeship at INDUSTRONIC

This is a post from our apprentice Anna who gives an insight into her apprenticeship at INDUSTRONIC.

Hello, my name is Anna and I am an apprentice at INDUSTRONIC in Wertheim. I started my vocational training to become an industrial business management assistant in September 2017. Currently I´m in my first year of training and soon I´m going to write the intermediate examination.

In Germany, we have the so-called dual training system. This means as an apprentice I am working at the INDUSTRONIC company to gain practical experience and one and a half days a week I visit a vocational school in Bad Mergentheim. There, my classmates and I are studying economics, foreign languages and the handling of electronic data processing systems. I really enjoy the interaction with students from other companies and studying the theoretical knowledge of my future profession.

My apprenticeship takes two and a half years. With the German Abitur there is the possibility of an additional qualification in international management and foreign languages. One part of the additional qualification is a 5-week stay in Malta, which is organized by my vocational school and supported by the EU. The educational trip will take place at the beginning of my second year of training. During our time in Malta we will go to an English class for one week. For four weeks we will work at a Maltese company. I´m looking forward to this unique experience.

At INDUSTRONIC, I go through many different departments like Project Management, Purchasing, Sales and many others. I´m getting a great overview of all departments and my colleagues are taking a lot of time to explain their daily work.

At work I can use my knowledge from school. At school I benefit from my experiences from work.

My apprenticeship is very diverse and I really enjoy the combination of school and work. I´m very happy INDUSTRONIC enables me such a good apprenticeship.

If you want to learn more about the German dual training system, you can also visit the website of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research.

Redundancy Concepts of the IP Public Address Unit

The permanent availability of critical devices is crucial when initiating alarms or voice announcements in emergency situations. The IP PA unit of the NPA series is especially designed to deal with this requirement. It offers intelligent backup control enabling component redundancy for the amplifier modules and the power supply unit – all in one device.

Redundant Amplifier Modules and Power Supply

To backup an amplifier module with a second one, you simply insert an identical amplifier module into the second slot provided.

For redundant power supply, both AC inputs are used. Power supply units can easily and quickly be replaced during normal operation thanks to hot-swap capability.

To provide additional protection, you can connect an emergency power supply (e.g. battery) to compensate for mains interferences.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

N+1 Redundancy

Completely redundant IP PA units which are configured in N+1 redundancy mode provide 100 % power without interruption. For N+1 (N = 1 to 4), there is always one backup device available to take over the complete functions in case of failure. There is an automatic switchover of all inputs and outputs.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Network Redundancy

Network redundancy is achieved through two Ethernet ports. If one network fails, the data is sent via the second one.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Individual Solutions

Every project has individual requirements. Together we will find the redundancy solution that best fits your needs.

ISO 9001:2015 and Customer Satisfaction

INDUSTRONIC ISO 9001:2015 Certificate

We are proud to announce that INDUSTRONIC has been certified according to DIN ISO 9001:2015!

Every 3 years, a recertification audit takes place to renew the certificate for our quality management system. This year we were able to become recertified according to the new standard ISO 9001:2015.

The difference between the old standard ISO 9001:2008 and the new standard is mainly the combination of the quality and strategic targets. Top management must ensure that quality policy and quality objectives are consistent with the organization’s strategic direction and context. ISO 9001:2015 puts greater emphasis on the process-oriented approach and the demand for comprehensive and systematic process management. Completely new to the ISO 9001:2015 standard is the demand for a systematic handling of risks and opportunities. In the future, organizations must identify, analyze and evaluate risks and opportunities as well as plan, implement and control their effectiveness.  Read more »

Sound Knowledge in Project Management – the Basis for Successful Projects

Author: Carina Knörzer

Since INDUSTRONIC is a project-based company high skills in project management have been crucial for our success over the last years.

Now, our CEO decided to further develop these skills and broaden the know how throughout the whole company. With a large-scale training measure all the employees got the chance to take part in a one day workshop to learn more about project management.

Project Management at INDUSTRONIC

Some of the INDUSTRONIC employees who took part in the project management training

So far, almost two thirds of the staff took the opportunity and learned more about the following topics:

– Project phases and roles
– Target definition
– Project overview and structure plan
– Team development and communication
– Social competency

In general, the feedback was very positive. The participants gained a good overview of the topic and some will even deepen their knowledge with advanced courses. In addition to that many pointed out that it was interesting to work together with colleagues from different departments of the company.

So, the training measure was also helpful to improve the cross-team collaboration and our good working atmosphere.
