The Power of Electrifying Ideas

195 years of Westphalian industrial history

Schniewindt was founded in 1829 in Westphalia and is a performance-orientated, independent family business. Since the invention of the "Schniewindt grid" in 1902, we have been producing electrical high-voltage resistors, making us one of the first suppliers of electrical devices for power distribution.

By utilising the latest process technologies, we are constantly developing our products to meet the needs of our customers. With our worldwide co-operations, we are one of the leading manufacturers of high-power electrical resistors and electrical heating technology devices and systems for industrial and commercial purposes.

Schniewindt heating technology

Schniewindt heating technology includes the development, manufacture and sale of heaters for heating gases, liquids and solids. These devices also reflect our expertise in explosion and firedamp hazard areas. With complete systems including electronic controls and pumps, we offer process-optimised and energy-efficient solutions from a single source.

Electrical resistance technology

In the field of electrical resistance technology, we develop and produce customised high-power and high-voltage resistors for various applications such as filter and damping circuits in HVDC and FACTS systems, where we can look back on a large number of successful projects worldwide.

Energy transmission technology

For energy transmission technology, we offer solutions for voltage and/or current measurement based on proven sensor technology. On customer request, the systems are also available with optical digital data transmission for use in future-orientated, digitally automated substations.
