Schulte Elektrotechnik has always converted visionary ideas into innovative products. With the new company headquarters, the company from Lüdenscheid, Germany can now demonstrate how their electrical wiring installations guarantee the efficiency of office buildings into the future while reducing costs. The building and individual room automation systems were created using controllers and modules from the WAGO-I/O-SYSTEM 750.
Visitors to the new Schulte Elektrotechnik GmbH headquarters in North Rhine-Westphalia will notice one thing quite quickly: There are no lights in the ceiling and no switches or electrical outlets in the walls. “It makes no sense to lay kilometers of cable in ceilings and walls just to turn on the lights,” says Siegfried Schulte. The founder and owner has always had a passion for sophisticated ideas about the interface between humans and technology. He invented the steering column arm switch, commonly used for blinkers. The dead man’s switch, which causes the engine on a lawn mower to shut down when released, was also his idea. In all, Siegfried Schulte has developed more than 300 patents. The company, which he founded in 1964, is known for the electrical wiring systems trademarked under EVOline, which are high-quality modular products for power and data systems with a tasteful designed.
“When you move outside conventional electrical installations, even experts are often unable to understand exactly what it is that we do. However, we can’t give our customers guided tours of buildings that we equipped, since that would disturb the people working there. Therefore, we show building owners, architects and electrical systems designers our own headquarters, so they can see what is feasible,” explains Siegfried Schulte.
