Engineer Robert Michaelides
Engineer Robert Michaelides laid the foundations for the consortium in 1986 in Fulda, a group which includes both RM Michaelides and telematics provider, PROEMION. Today, the headquarters, development, and management are located in one of the most up-to-date production halls in Europe, on a site measuring approximately 8,000 m². Along with the US branch, other successful partners in America, Europe and Asia contribute to the distribution of our products and services.
Operating on an international basis, the company specializes in sending CAN messages using wireless communications such as GSM, Bluetooth, and WLAN. These solutions allow for almost unlimited data communications with vehicles or machines on a global scale. The group's broad range of products includes many wired modules for protocol and interface conversion, wired and wireless I/O interfaces and displays. This range of products is used in both mobile and stationary applications.
