Emergency Lighting: Safe in Case of Emergency

If the power fails and the light goes out in your home, this may be very inconvenient, but it does not necessarily create a significant security risk. The situation is markedly different in a shopping center, in a cinema, at the airport or in a production facility – wherever large groups meet, a sudden lighting failure can quickly lead to critical situations. Even more dangerous is when there is a real emergency occurring at the same time, such as a fire or heavy smoke. In such cases, lighting must be used to ensure that all the people inside the building can find the quickest way out.

Zero Emissions, Doubly Safeguarded

Supported by the Arctic University of Norway in Narvik (UiT) and funded by the Norwegian government, the shipbuilders at Grovfjord Mekaniske Verksted (GMV) have developed an energy management system (EMS) for a zero-emission ship with an all-electric drive. This visionary project was realized with the help of WAGO, which contributed to the central automation.

Aquaculture Leaps into the Digital Age

The notion of the fisherman sailing off to the open seas is scarcely more than nostalgia. In the meantime, according to information from the wildlife and environmental protection organization, WWF, almost half of all fish consumed by humans comes from aquaculture, and the trend is increasing. Fish farmers do not rely on bait, but instead on digital data analysis in order to catch the fattest fish – and to keep their breeding stocks healthy and economically viable. WAGO technology is there to support them.

The Lake is Calm and Still

Embedded in a stunning, idyllic mountain setting, Lake Lucerne provides a traditional atmosphere with its fjord-like straights and winding inlets. Right in the middle of this beauty is a daily shipping route bearing tourists between Lucerne and other popular travel destinations, like Weggis and Bürgenstock. While it may sound less than idyllic, it actually boasts an intriguing eco-friendly twist. The MS Bürgenstock, the new motorized vessel belonging to the Lake Lucerne Navigation Company (SGV), sports a quiet and fuel-efficient hybrid drive. Aventics, a specialist of hybrid drive controls in ships headquartered in Laatzen, ensures optimum control between the electric motors and diesel engines. Several years ago, Aventics expanded their solutions by using the WAGO-I/O-SYSTEM 750.
