We are sorry but the company Compit (previously known as „FRIWO-Compit“) was sold to a Dutch company in 2002. As far as we know, Compit was dissolved two years ago in Ostbevern. We do not have any further details. We cannot repair any third party devices. We thank you for your understanding in this matter.
Production of Bike-Lights was stopped years ago; therefore we no longer have any replacement parts available. As the device was only manufactured by us under license, we would recommend that you contact AJG Industrie-Batterien GmbH, Tinsdaler Kirchenweg 285, 22559 Hamburg (Tel. +49 40 819 606 05).
As we solely supply original equipment manufacturers, we do not have any instruction manuals. If the matter concerns an older piece of consumer equipment, e.g. FW 4070 UNI or similar, this section was sold to COMPIT in 2002. All rights to the instruction manuals were also transferred to the new owner.
If there is a FRIWO battery in your devices, these were formerly manufactured by Friemann & Wolf GmbH, Duisburg, which was sold to the company EXIDE (Büdingen) in 1997. Please enquire with them.
If the devices are labelled „CEAG“, there is possibly confusion with the company CEAG Notlichtsysteme GmbH, Senator-Schwartz-Ring 26, 59494 Soest. This company is not identical to us and otherwise not connected to us.If the devices have FRIWO labelling, then they are safety and emergency lights by the former company Friemann & Wolf GmbH, Duisburg. The company KMC Sicherheitslicht und -strom GmbH, Duisburg can give you information on these products. Its contact details are Tel +49 2066 2053-0 (www.kmc-sicherheit.de).
No. Please note the diferent URLs: FRIWO Gerätebau GmbH = www.friwo.de, FRIWO Entstaubungstechnik = www.friwo.net.
Electronic components or circuit boards are not available from us or our partners.
As an environmentally conscious company, FRIWO has not been developing and manufacturing linear devices for a long time, as these no longer meet the legal requirements for efficiency and standby losses. We also no longer have any old stock.
Mining lamps used to belong to the “Mining” division of FRIEMANN & WOLF Duisburg, our former parent company. Since this division was given up relatively early, there is unfortunately no one left who could provide information about older lamps and types, nor is there an archive.
To enhance our customer service, we continually optimize our processes. In this context we ask you to notify your FRIWO sales support in advance about any product returns. You will then receive an RMA code (Return Material Authorization) which helps us to quickly identify the shipment and to accelerate internal processes accordingly. This RMA code is to be attached to each shipment.<br>Contact details of your personal FRIWO sales support can be found on the top right corner of our order confirmation, delivery note or invoice. If these documents are not available, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.</p>Please note that we can not acceny returns without a valid RMA code after September 1st, 2014.

The current which, during operation of a device, flows out via the capacitances and the insulation resistance of the operating circuit via the protective conductor of the device to earth. The leakage current is important for medical power supplies.
The temperature range which must not be exceeded or fallen below when the device is in operation.
Continuous short circuit proof means that a short circuit can be present for a long time without damaging the output. Once the fault has been rectified, the output operates normally again.
EMC stands for the ability of an electrical device to function satisfactorily in its electromagnetic environment without unacceptably influencing its environment, which also includes other devices. Power supply units should comply with at least two basic EMC standards:
1. the standard for emitted interference (interference that the power supply unit emits or radiates in a conducted fashion) and
2. the standard for immunity (protection against external interference). These generic standards comprise a large number of other sub-standards, each of which defines limit values for sub-sectors (e.g. certain types of interference). FRIWO power supplies usually comply with these standards to a stricter degree than required because we believe that the EMC of our devices should be as good as possible in order to enable trouble-free operation.
Short circuit proof means that a temporary short circuit can be tolerated without damage.
Temperature range in which a device may be stored (not operated) without suffering damage.
MTBF stands for Mean Time Between Failures. The MTBF indicates the statistical average time when a device fails due to processing or component faults before signs of wear and tear begin.
A temperature-dependent resistor with a negative coefficient, whereby the resistance value is greatly reduced with increasing temperature. Consequently, it is also called a thermistor. In addition to temperature measurement, it is also used to limit the inrush current of power supplies.
SMT (surface-mounted technology) is a surface mounting technology in which surface-mountable components (components without wire connections) are soldered directly onto a printed circuit board using solderable connection surfaces.
A control loop in the power supply unit keeps the output voltage constant regardless of all factors (e.g. temperature).
Current consumption of a power supply in no-load operation.
Electronic overload protection that limits the maximum output current to a preset value.
THT stands for the English term: through-hole technology and describes the through-hole assembly. In this type of assembly, the components have wire connections (“wired components”) and are inserted through the printed circuit board by means of contact holes and then connected by special THT soldering processes.
Temperature of the still air surrounding the unit. Is usually measured approx. 10 mm next to the unit in operation.
A power supply circuit monitors the output voltage. If a certain preset limit is exceeded, the power supply is deactivated.
The efficiency is calculated from the ratio of output to input power and is always less than one.
Power supply with an input voltage for operation in the particular countries.
Wide Range (also known as Wide Range)
Power supplies with wide-range input can be operated at different nominal voltages without the need to adjust them by (manual or automatic) switching.
