This legacy name, Hirschmann, has a long history of acquistion that resulted in separate ownership of the brand and differing range of products today. Today, different divisions of the Hirschmann brand operate as separate entities with differing range of products.
In July 2006, SKS Kontakttechnik Gmbh acquired Hirschmann's Test and Measurement division and allowed it to own all Hirschmann Test and Measurement products. Named as Hirschmann Test and Measurement today, it provides a range of safety measuring leads and test accessories.
Apart from which, in January 2007, Belden acquired Hirchmann's line of connectors and Ethernet products for the industrial market. Today, the Hirschmann (part of Belden Group) is currently the only brand that offers a complete product range for homogeneous data communication in the industrial sector using Ethernet and Fieldbus systems. This includes Layer 2 and Layer 3 switches as well as industrial security and WLAN systems that provide a uniform, company-wide communications infrastructure without interface problems and media discontinuities.
