New EPSILON+ standard is finally out!

The DIN 51111:2024-02 dielectric test standard will be published in February.

After more than five years of standardization work, the time has finally come: the DIN 51 111 method is published in edition 02-2024. Under the title “Electrical properties of fresh and used oils from electric drives in vehicles – Measurement of the specific electrical conductivity, the relative permittivity (εr) and the dielectric dissipation factor (tan δ)”, a precise description of the test procedure is given, for which flucon’s EPSILON+ Dielectricity Meter is fully compliant.

A part of what comes next.

flucon has been accepted into the DGMK.

After joining the FVA research association of drive technology in the middle of this year, we are proud to announce that flucon is now also a member of “Deutsche Gesellschaft für nachhaltige Energieträger, Mobilität und Kohlenstoffkreisläufe e.V.” (DGMK).

What keeps us moving.

flucon GmbH joins FVA Research Association for Drive Technology

Today the time has finally come: our company has been accepted as a member of the Research Association for Drive Technology – or FVA for short. As a developer, manufacturer and also user of fluid measurement technology, we continuously move between different research focuses. Drive technology in particular has been and remains an essential discipline of our work. One of its central challenges, the characterization of suitable lubricants in a wide variety of drive systems, has given our team the literal drive to innovate for many years.

Our 2023 schedule.

Outlook for the new year: flucon GmbH travels to nextlub and VDI Symposium.

This year, our team is once again on the road to present flucon’s latest developments.

Among others, Josephine Klingebiel and André Heine will present our dual approach to electrical fluid characterization with two keynotes.

In April, the flucon team will travel to Düsseldorf to exhibit at nextlub. In June, we will then be guests in Schweinfurt at the 15th Annual VDI Symposium.

Quality is key.

Joining our R&D team as flucon’s Head of QA: André Heine.

Today we present a highly qualified new addition to the team. André Heine is 36 years young and will strengthen our R&D in the future with the important focus on quality assurance.

With his extensive knowledge in the areas of CAD construction, sensor technology and test benches, among others, Mr. Heine will take care of all quality-related customer concerns and will manage flucon’s continuous improvement process.
