Kromberg and Schubert (known as Kroschu), who started manufacturing insulated wire in 1902, are a global presence in cable manufacture.
Now situated in Rhede, northwest Germany, Kroschu is a leading manufacturer of multicore, multipair, fibre optic cable and developer of customised cables.
Kroschu special cables utilise their high degree of expertise in the fields of development and production in market sectors such as the automotive industry, communications and data technology, broadcast, medical and industrial automation.
Accredited to ISO 9001:2008, ISO 14001 and ISO TS 16949, Kroschu's high level of competence has been approved to meet the requirements of their customers in accordance with international standards.
To meet such high standards Kroschu have heavily invested in their testing facilities and can consistently monitor and manufacture using material tests, thermal tests, electrical/HF tests and dynamic tests to produce a stable, quality cable product.
Kroschu can offer designs that utilise copper conductors as small as 0.02mm2 or as large as 120mm2 or with temperature ranges from -120°C up to +260°C, not to mention optical fibre made of glass (singlemode and multimode) and plastic (POF).
Kroschu offer a wide range of cable products for many applications:
Kroschu can supply cables to international approvals such as UL and CSA for solutions that require flexibility, chemical resistance, excellent screening effectiveness and ruggedness. PVC or Halogen free materials are available for applications such as these.
Data and Sensors
Cables for the transfer of data are also available from Kroschu. Where data and sensor cables are used, in harsh environments that are exposed to mechanical and chemical stresses, Kroschu can offer materials that are resistant to temperature and chemicals such as flame resistant PUR. Kroschu can also offer cable products for quality control sensors in harsh applications such as regular contact with aggressive detergents and disinfectants in the food and beverage industry.
The growth of renewable energies for the future has seen the introduction of wind and power cables from Kroschu. Their product range in this sector covers applications such as halogen free, flame resistant cables for control and sensor cables for wind power stations and cross-linked PE solar cable for solar panels.
Kroschu offer extremely high quality conductor, insulation, shielding and sheathing materials that are required for the sensitive applications in the medical market. Cable products range from insulation materials that are suitable for sterilisation and autoclaving, to spiral cables, and optimised screened cables for use with X-ray machines or ultrasound technology.
Professional high-end audio and video cables are also part of the extensive product range. Cables for the transfer of analogue and digital signals in standard 75ohm cable with tight impedance tolerances are available, as are low loss speaker cable and specialised cables for outside broadcast.
Kroschu have developed various cable products for different applications in the automotive sector; including safety cables, sensor cables for active steering to cable solutions for the latest electrically powered vehicles.
