Steinel has been defining its success through the quality of its innovations for over 50 years. Imagination, technical expertise and many years of experience are all factors that go to make products "typically STEINEL". STEINEL managed to make the breakthrough in product development back in 1976.
An electronic voltage tester for AC and DC voltage was the first STEINEL-made product on the market. STEINEL launched the heat-tool product line with the first hot-melt glue applicator in 1980, adding hot-air tools in 1983. STEINEL started to develop sensor-controlled outdoor lights in 1987 and invented the world's first sensor-switched light. In 2002 STEINEL was the first manufacturer to use high-frequency sensor technology for detecting movements in spaces and buildings and integrated the HF system invisibly into lights.
Today, STEINEL is just as much the world's brand leader in this segment as it is in using LED lighting in conjunction with sensor technology.
Examples of successful products include the RS PRO LED S1 as well as the latest generation of powerful #XLED floodlights with a lens matrix for illuminating large areas. Most recently, the fourth sensor technology was developed in the form of the camera sensor system that only detects people and can even count them.
As innovation and technology leader, STEINEL is always a step ahead.
