A wide range of product and solution offerings for embedded and programmable technologies, test and measurement, soldering technology and 3D printing to trade visitors from research and development departments as well as embedded designers will be presented by Conrad Business Supplies embedded world in Nuremberg (27 February - 1 March 2018). 


This year’s highlight is the RF2000 V2 3D printer with dual-extruder technology. Visitors can experience live demonstrations of this 3D printer.

Compared to its predecessor, the 3D printer RF2000 V2 offers a revised object ventilation for improved print quality as well as an enlarged printing area of 180mm x 260mm x 185mm (x, y, z axis). A redesigned print bed also provides ideal print results for the RF2000 V2 with the latest V3 hotend, even for demanding print models.

The TOOLCRAFT high-frequency soldering station, also from Conrad Business Supplies will be showcased. Compared to conventional solutions, the high-frequency soldering stations can be used to achieve better and faster soldering results for large solder pads that require a high amount of heat or energy.

The C-Control Hexapod robot board will be demonstrated. It enables the development of a Hexapod robot and allows for many additional combination possibilities with various microcontroller boards such as the Arduino UNO and single board computers like the Raspberry Pi.

In addition, visitors at Conrad’s booth have the opportunity to see product demonstrations from companies such as Texas Instruments, Digilent, 4D Systems, Flir and National Instruments. 

Visitors who simply want to know more about Conrad’s range of components will find the 2,800 page catalogue “Forschung & Entwicklung 2017/18” (Research & Development 2017/18) a comprehensive reference guide about components and accessories. The book is available as a trial copy and can be ordered directly at the exhibition booth.

“Embedded World has established itself as an indispensable showcase for the embedded and related industries for many years and is one of the most important B2B trade fairs for us”, says Stefan Fuchs (pictured), Vice President Business Supplies at Conrad. “We will use this opportunity again this year to show developers the latest trends from our range of services.”
