As a service provider that has specialised in the repair of legacyand discontinued modules, we of course endeavour to maintain modules from every manufacturer as long as possible. Especially safety-related components, such as power packs, transformers and high-performance transistors, are replaced as a preventive measure during the repair with ones that have been approved by the manufacturer or legislator. If possible, improved components are also used to extend the service life of the product during daily operation.
The measures detailed above help us to prevent additional electronic scrap waste. Legacyor discontinued controllers can then be used far beyond their actual date of discontinuation. Amongst other things, customers therefore do not need to worry about expensive retrofits.
It is not just when we procure the components required for the repair but also when dispatching our modules that it is very important for us to collaborate with responsible and certified suppliers and freight carriers. These suppliers are not only expected to adhere to legal requirements and environmental management standards but are checked on a continuous basis using internal inspection procedures. This is the only way we can guarantee on a continuous basis that we are collaborating with external suppliers who act with a sense of responsibility towards the environment.
Working with electronic modules, particularly repairs using soldering technologies generates hazardous vapours that will have a negative effect on workshop employees. This is why all of the technical work stations are equipped with a central extraction system including an activated carbon filter to reduce the emission of pollutants to a minimum.
