For a project to be realised in the USA, Ruland built 10 single to four row load and control cabinets. The 49 on-site control boxes were also done in our in-house workshop. The German TÜV certified that our technicians contructed and build all control and load cabinets in accordance to the safety regulations of the UL 508 A. The UL certification helps our customer to fulfill the official regulations on electrical devices.
It’s also an element to continuous quality of the production process. All control and load cabinets are on their way to the United States.

Protect yourself agains Ransomware

28.04.2017

According to the media, Trojan horses, that encrypt hard disks completely, already caused significant financial damages. One click on excel-lists, word-documents, PDF-files, ZIP archives and even e-mails with this malware, and you’ll have to pay horrendous amounts of money to decrypt your own hard disk. For this reason, Ruland updated its firewall with a new tool that helps checking documents. Our tip: Check your IT-protective devices! Point out to all users to handle with care and attention e-mails and attachments, especially from unkown users or unsafe websites.
