“Founding father” of LAMTEC reduces shares

On 1st July 2014 after almost 19 years in office, Bernd Jülg resigned as Managing Director of LAMTEC GmbH. Mr Jülg is one of the founding fathers of LAMTEC and thus “a man of the first LAMTEC hour”. As well as being one of the founders of LAMTEC, Mr Jülg has been on board since 1982, first as employee at Heinz, then in his own engineering office. During his employment at Heinz, for BBC/ABB and based on ABB Lambda sensor LS1, Mr Jülg developed the Lambda control LR1; one of the first O2 controls on the market.
As head of development at LAMTEC he played a decisive role in the development of fail-safe burner controls for FMS, ETAMATIC and ETAMATIC OEM as well as the exhaust gas analysers LT1 and LT2. Mr Jülg held 30% of LAMTEC shares, and following his wish to scale down his job activities he transfers 20% of his LAMTEC GmbH & Co.KG shares to Olaf Winne, who will now lead the whole development team of LAMTEC. Mr Jülg will also resign his position as Managing Director of LAMTEC. He will however continue to work for LAMTEC on a freelance basis and will retain 10% of LAMTEC shares.
The whole LAMTEC group, LAMTEC management and all colleagues take this opportunity to thank Mr Jülg for the longstanding constructive cooperation, his creative solutions and his extraordinary commitment in the past years.

LAMTEC looks forward to continuing the successful cooperation and wishes
Mr Jülg to finally find the desired time and leisure to enjoy taking care of his
private projects.

Integration of Escube GmbH & Co. KG into the LAMTEC group

On 1st January 2014 Escube GmbH & Co. KG, of which LAMTEC so far held 51% of shares was fully integrated into LAMTEC group. The integration of the sensor manufacturer provides synergies by concentrating LAMTEC sensor development at one location facilitating continuous expansion and further development of LAMTEC sensor know-how. The newly build cleanroom at Walldorf vividly illustrates the LAMTEC company motto ‘All under one roof’.

 New flame scanners FFS07 and FFS08

Flammenfühler FFS08 FFS07LAMTEC has successfully introduced its new flame scanners FFS07 and FFS08 into the market. Together with the flame monitoring device F152 we can thus offer you a new and modern monitoring system. The new flame scanners will replace the old product series FFS05 and FFS06. Mechanical dimensions are absolutely identical, so that in most cases you can simply exchange the scanners without any special effort. In order to continue to provide you with competitively priced products we had to slightly reduce the number of variants. This results in two amendments: For the flame scanners with connecting plug, in future there will only be one connection cable (available) resp. extension cable for FFS07 and FFS08. This cable will of course be available in standard lengths of 3 m, 5 m and 10 m, and can be used for FFS06, too. Contrarily to the FFS06, the variant „sensor with 2 m cable without plug“ will no longer be available in the case of FFS08. Instead of 2 m cable we will provide the variant with 3 m cable.
Are you curious to know more? We gladly send you our information sheet which comprehensively shows you the suitable combinations of flame sensor and flame scanner. Simply send an email with subject line ‘Info Flame Scanner’ to . Our sales team will be pleased to answer your technical queries vertrieb(at)

Triac-defect through false wiring of relay module R660R0016 or

This error can be caused if the ETAMATIC or relay module 660R0016 (V4.3, from August 2006 onwards) outputs are disconnected by a contact while under load. This damages the triacs. The damage may not appear immediately. Depending on how the triac withstands the current/voltage overload and how high the current phase position was during the moment the load was cut off, the circuit can work without a problem. Always expect a malfunction. For that reason it is not allowed to include a contact between an output and a load.
