The same global processes influence our daily life at the same level in every corner of the world, despite significant differences in way of life, culture and traditions. This is a fact.
Danfoss technologies aim to meet these modern challenges and allow us all to independently shape our future. Industry and industrial automation provide new opportunities and expand our horizons, particularly in electrification and digitalization. Here, variable-speed drive technology is central to setting the direction of these trends, and in navigating challenges during the journey.
Challenges of electrification and digitalization
Danfoss Drives addresses electrification and digitalization at SPS IPC Drives 2018, presenting new solutions and concepts for automated systems using flexible and easily integrated high-efficiency drives. Clever use of AC drive and application data is crucial to improving the availability of production equipment. Danfoss offers strategies to increase productivity while reducing engineering and operation effort, as well as optimizing service costs.
DrivePro® services deliver a new approach to managing lifecycle costs and risks, using tools such as preventive and predictive maintenance as well as remote monitoring. In an industrial setting, DrivePro® services provide operators with an overview of their systems, improving control over their equipment or individual machine components in real time. Using augmented reality, visitors will get a taste of this experience via a complete remotely-monitored overview of all the drives in operation at the stand, including all data relevant to their applications.
Intelligent ways to store, convert and use energy are increasingly important for sustainability of industrial applications. Hybrid solutions from Danfoss offer new ways to stabilize power supply and reduce energy costs, and experts from Danfoss Drives Engineered Solutions will be on hand to share their knowledge on hybridization with visitors.
Introducing elegant flexibility and simplicity to servo systems, the VLT® FlexMotion portfolio offers a comprehensive, flexible range of centralized and decentralized servo drives and motors. Ready-made application modules enable easy programming and integration into automation systems via POWERLINK, PROFINET or EtherCAT.
All these building blocks from Danfoss allow users to build, integrate and use Industry 4.0 and IoT systems, taking the lead in embracing the megatrends influencing our modern society, and facing the challenges they present.
