Fleet Management & Predictive Maintenance
What's the solution about?
The CAN gateway developed by Microtronis makes Komptech fleet management possible – and at a uniform worldwide rate. In addition, predictive maintenance can be implemented.
Komptech develops and builds machines for the treatment of biomass and solid waste. The product range includes over 30 different machine types. From Australia to Japan, Africa and America, the machines are in use worldwide. This is why global network coverage, independent of individual providers, is particularly important for IoT solutions for fleet management and predictive maintenance. A worldwide uniform tariff also realises plannable costs.
Another challenge is the use of the solution in a harsh environment. In addition to high temperatures, the hardware has to cope with vibrations and large amounts of dust. The CAN interface of the machines is used to record the data. The CAN gateway records the data via CAN bus.
The data is sent to a central server every 15 minutes via mobile radio. There, the data is then evaluated and used in a wide variety of ways.
In the event of a malfunction on the machine, the error code is immediately sent to the server, regardless of the 15-minute transmission interval. For this, an initial pre-processing of the data must take place directly at the CAN gateway in order to detect such events.
Further evaluations for service and development then take place on the server, where historical data is stored and sufficient storage space and computing power are available.
The EC-CAN is a compact, freely programmable device for the acquisition, processing and transmission of machine data and is used in following areas:
- Predictive Maintenance
- Collection and processing of information
- Mobile transmission of operating parameters to the central IT system
- Wireless maintenance access
- New web services for products and end customers
The technical data are shown in the Factsheet.
