A success story

An all new generation of mobile measurement technology – the vision that started CAETEC’s story. And we have continuously pursued and further developed this idea. Since 2018 as a part and under the name of IPETRONIK.


CAETEC: the OEM development partner

In 2002, Stephan Bacher, Tobias Prousa, and Peter Hütt founded the CAETEC GbR in Olching. The company has soon become one of the most important development partners of the automotive industry regarding vehicle testing and mobile measurement technology. CAETEC focuses on prototype development projects and supports multichannel bus and supply system architectures based on BroadR-Reach, Automotive Ethernet, FlexRay, CAN FD, and other technologies.

ARCOS: modular system architecture for various tasks

With the innovative data logger system ARCOS, CAETEC has developed an all-time favorite. The ARCOS is designed for fleet and road testing with measurement tasks requiring various bus interfaces. It provides a very high processing power, data storage capacity, and reliability. Due to its modular system architecture and scalability, the logger is ideal for various applications; no tools are needed to increase the number of bus interfaces for CAN, CAN FD, LIN, FlexRay, or ETH. Created in 2006, it has been improved continuously. Today, the highly modular data logger ARCOS 1.5 is available in five different versions. After the system integration of the CAETEC products, it can now be operated with the softwares dataLog and IPEmotion.


2016: INDUS Holding AG acquires 100 % of CAETEC

The INDUS Holding AG, a specialist in the field of sustainable and long-term investment and development in the German-speaking SME sector and the parent company of IPETRONIK, acquires 100 % of the CAETEC GmbH company shares. This acquisition completes their strong portfolio for the automotive industry.

2018: CAETEC merges with IPETRONIK. Growing further together!

CAETEC completes the IPETRONIK portfolio in the areas drive train and thermal management. Sales and technology synergies provide customers worldwide with an even broader product range; two top teams working hand in hand. With the release of the IPEmotion plug-in CAETEC dataLog, CAETEC data loggers can now be configured with IPEmotion.


Present & future side by side: innovative and high-performance solutions for customers all around the globe

Today, we create technological innovations side by side and develop hardware and software that meets the highest demands. The data loggers ETHOS and µCROS SL as well as the thermocouple M-TDC 8 are the first market-ready products developed together. In the summer of 2020, the Olching team relocated to new and bigger premises in Bergkirchen. We are currently collaborating on the new hardware and software generations. Our goal as always: to provide our customers with reliable and high-quality products and services.
