Application goal:
Murrelektronik's MVK remote I/O modules are metal-encased, extremely resistant devices that fit perfectly into automotive production lines, particularly when welding processes are involved.

This production process involves risks that are previously assessed and the safety MVK has a fundamental role in the implementation of risk reduction measures, in areas of high demand and wear caused either by vibration or by welding sparks.

The quality of Murrelektronik's MVK product is so recognized in this area that there is an exclusive agreement for the application of this product in the production units of the largest German manufacturers in the automotive industry.

Murrelektronik's MVK features an incredible 157 years of MTTFD (Mean Time to Critical Failure).
