Intuition as a drive.
abatec developed a gearbox control for Rosenbauer’s airport fire trucks. It was completely redesigned as a control unit for the 6 or 8-gear selector for Panther vehicles. In addition to this gear selector, abatec also manufactures the cabin control of the Panther, which regulates a wide range of functions from the lighting and ignition through to the power windows.


Operations at a glance.
abatec developed the complete digital display with a modern, intuitive display for larger and more flexible layouts and easier operability for the component control unit that controls various mobile devices. The logical structure of the control panel supports the user by providing information at a glance on the status, feedback on any malfunctions or operating errors, and suggestions for correct handling.


Innovation is a mindset.

Rosenbauer developed an entirely new helmet lamp for the fire-fighting HEROS-titan helmet, characterized by significantly higher performance, optimized luminosity and burn time. The development of the electronics applied for this lamp took place in cooperation with abatec. The integrable helmet lamp, which can also be used in an environment with flammable gases, complies with the strict ATEX (Atmosphères Explosibles) guidelines of the European Union and is produced ready for assembly in-house at the Regau location.

Customer statement
