Electronic Data Interchange


The EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) Department at Weidmuller is currently developing a working relationship with our vendors/suppliers to implement the transmission of sales and ordering information electronically. By receiving the sales and ordering information electronically, Weidmuller does not have to re-key the information into the computer system, thereby removing the chance for error. Our vendors/suppliers do not have to print or fax the sales and ordering information to Weidmuller.


For the implementation of EDI, the vendor/supplier and Weidmuller must agree on certain conditions:

  • EDI Standard (ANSI, EDIFACT, etc.)
  • Version of Transaction Set (Weidmuller can accommodate 2001 to 4010)
  • Customer Identifier Number (DUNS, phone#, etc.)
  • Product Numbers (Weidmuller requires a product cross-reference data file)
  • Implementation schedule (To be decided upon by both parties)
  • DROP SHIPS can not be processed through EDI
  • Special Prints can not be processed through EDI
  • Transmission times are: 5:00 AM, 9:00 AM, 10:00 AM, 11:00 AM, 12:00 PM, 1:00 PM, 2:00 PM, 3:00 PM, 4:00 PM, 9:00 PM
