Both CAN in Automation (CiA) members Danfoss and Proemion strengthen their partnership and now act as joint partners. Both companies provide CAN-related products.
"In the future, we will focus even more on the respective core competencies of the two companies and thus create new synergies, which of course, also benefit our customers," said Henrik Jørgensen, President of the Controls Division at Danfoss.
With this new agreement, Proemion will directly supply Danfoss's end customers worldwide with its products. The CANlink mobile, Proemion's telematics control unit, is equipped with Danfoss's diagnostic communication protocol, enabling connected machines to communicate with the Danfoss PLus+1 service tool. Furthermore, Proemion provides its cloud-based infrastructure. Using Proemion's APIs and Web portal, end customers can configure and visualize Danfoss service offerings, such as diagnostics and troubleshooting, to fit their needs.
Besides transferring data via GSM/GPRS/EDGE, CANlink mobile 5000 uses UMTS and HSDPA standards to reduce dead time and reach a faster rate of data transfer. As a result, users are able to display, monitor, log, and analyze data from mobile and stationary CAN network systems in an even shorter amount of time from any location. CANlink mobile 5303 and 5320 have local I/Os and Mini USB.
Both companies are convinced that they can offer their customers innovative and forward-looking telematics solutions with their combined strengths. Danfoss offers diagnostic solutions specifically tailored to its controllers, while Proemion's hardware and software provide a connection to the machines wherever they are located.
Proemion can already incorporate the requirements of the Danfoss controllers into the development of new gateways. By including the Proemion hardware in its toolchain, Danfoss ensures that the telematics units communicate with the end customers' machines. Through the enhanced transfer of knowledge, both companies can also take a proactive approach to future-oriented issues such as predictive analytics and connected controllers.
