By combining German-made quality with an exceptional Technical Support Team and Industry Experts in sectors including Food & Beverage, Packaging and Automotive, Murrelektronik provides customers practical field-tested products, unrivalled service, expert advice and cross-industry knowledge.

Everything from a single source - Murrelektronik supply everything for machine and plant installations. By offering such a wide range of industrial automation products, Murrelektronik customers can opt to purchase the simplest of components or benefit from a complete system solution.

Murrelektronik offers customers a unique pool of components - Over 40,000 products are tested in our in-house test centre, loaded with patents, innovations and really clever ideas.

The product range is sub-divided into 4 comprehensive ranges: Electronics in the Control Cabinet, Interfaces, Connection Technology and I/O Systems

Electronics in the Control Cabinets
Our product portfolio includes a complete range of products, from simple transformers through to battery-backed, redundant, intelligent power distribution systems. Emparro is a highly innovative power supply unit with maximum efficiency and minimum power loss.

Suppressor modules from Murrelektronik ensure machine availability. The benefits of suppressor technology are enormous and far outweigh the measures linked with its deployment - prevent malfunctions or faults and save considerable costs. Murrelektronik offers matched components for contactors, motors and valves designed for installation in control cabinets or in the field.

Coupling modules from Murrelektronik can disconnect, switch or convert voltage - even where space is at a premium. Our product portfolio comprises a variety of relay and optocoupler modules that use the practical terminal block format. Our analog transformers and temperature converters are specially designed for applications in the field of process measuring and control technology.

Interfaces, Signal Conditioning and Light Towers
We provide you with solutions for your individual requirements with our comprehensive range of cabinet entry for you to connect to your controller inside the system. Front-panel interfaces make it easy to connect without even having to open the doors. More than 4000 possible insertion combinations provide maximum flexibility.

Connection Technology
Murrelektronik offers one of the most comprehensive ranges for connecting sensors and actuators. A great number of connectors are available from stock or will be produced within 48 hours after an order is places. The product range includes the classic M8-/M12 round plug connectors, valve connectors and Ethernet connectors. Our distribution systems with plastic or metal housings are universally installable. All passive distributors are pretested. Continuously plugged and pre-terminated cables make the wiring of sensors and actuators quick and easy. Distributors from Murrelektronik help to significantly reduce installation and maintenance costs.

I/O Systems & Fieldbus Technology
With Murrelektronik’s Fieldbus Technology, connecting sensors and actuators is convenient and systematically to a higher level. Cube 67 is a modular system especially for application-friendly installations. Impact67 equals major cost savings. MVK Metal is made for demanding industrial environments and MASI is unique because of its extremely simple installation technology.
