Schroff is a leading German manufacturer of electronic packaging products. Schroff products include cabinets, housings, chassis and related components for multiple markets such as telecommunications, data centers and traffic management.
The Schroff brand contains a broad product portfolio from printed circuit board (PCB) accessories, such as card retainers and extractors, front panels and handles to subracks, cases, backplanes, power supplies, cabinets and pre-assembled chassis for embedded computing systems. The brand Schroff, which belongs to the business unit of nVent Technical Solutions, has been a world leader in electronics packaging for over five decades.
In the early years Schroff only manufactured power supplies. By the mid-1960s the Schroff Europac Rack was the outstanding product of the 19 inch division. Rapid acceptance of Schroff electronic packaging products in the major electronics markets of the U.S. and Japan made Schroff the standard for electronic design. Through its participation in international standardization groups such as the IEC, Schroff was the pioneer of 19-inch cabinets, and also for the standard dimensions of the rack unit (RU) and division unit (TE). Schroff was part of British conglomerate Pentair from 1994 until 2018. On April 30, 2018 Pentair split into two companies, and Schroff became part of the British conglomerate nVent Electric plc.
