The Phoenix Contact Group has acquired NSE AG, headquartered in Wohlen (Switzerland) and is expanding its expertise in the energy sector.
Following the acquisition of Mauell Netzleittetechnik from Velbert - which now operated in the market as Phoenix Contact Energy Automation -, Phoenix Contact has now acquired NSE.

Extensive research is the base for patented technology and high-performance proprietary algorithms, a press release states.

Since its establishment in 1999, the company has become a specialist in secondary protection technology, employs 18 staff and has its main customer base in the DACH region.
