Danfoss Power Solutions for agriculture demonstrate how its products complement each other and how OEMs can integrate these solutions to improve agricultural equipment design and performance. The full product range consists of motors, steering systems, valves, pumps, electronic controls and telematics. They are reliable and quality solutions for machine design. Danfoss product line is wide and complete. This includes the recently expanded telematics solutions line, the best point control (BPC) software solution, the new range of joysticks and the reverse displacement motor (RDM). In addition, Danfoss will showcase recent innovations within motors, steering technology, PVG and PVX valves, H1 pumps and electronic controls.
The expanded Danfoss telematics solutions line is a robust “plug-and-perform” telematics platform for mobile off-highway equipment. Available for new machines and existing fleet retrofits, the Danfoss system uses data to drive efficiency and profit. Easy integration and comprehensive capabilities differentiate the Danfoss solution from others currently on the market. The platform is an open and flexible solution that can be expanded as telematics capabilities continue to evolve. Danfoss telematics solutions combine machine-integrated technology, satellite and cellular network connectivity, and a customizable, intuitive user interface to give fleet owners visibility of how, when, and where their equipment is used. Comprehensive and seamless capabilities of the system include data analysis, remote diagnostics, remote change of system parameters, remote software updates, machine location and tracking, geofencing, automated report generation, machine efficiency monitoring and analysis, and frequency and duration of use logging.
- Best point control
The Danfoss best point control (BPC) software solution is an intelligent power management concept that operates the components of a hydrostatic drive train (pump and motor) as close as possible to their optimum efficiency to best utilize the installed engine power. In many traditional hydrostatic transmissions, the operator uses a foot pedal to control engine speed. With BPC software, the operator only controls the machine’s forward and reverse movements via the drive pedal and directional command. The BPC software instantly adjusts the engine and hydrostatic transmission to deliver maximum efficiency in whatever the operator is doing. BPC software creates average fuel savings up to 25 percent depending on the application type, duty cycle and system configuration, while increasing driver comfort and productivity, decreasing disruption to the work area and getting the most work out of engines with the potential to reduce OEM costs by allowing for downsizing in engine displacement.
The new range of Danfoss joysticks provides operators with numerous configuration options featuring ergonomic designs that enable smooth and comfortable operation of both light and heavy-duty vehicles. Danfoss joysticks run the spectrum of versatility, with single- and dual-axis configurations, and multiple mechanical and electrical interface options. Joystick bases are customizable for your application, including detents, friction locks, redundant outputs and switch functions. Hall effect and potentiometric sensing technologies are available. Bases can be matched with joystick grips or customized grips if necessary.
- Reverse displacement motor
The newly expanded Danfoss reverse displacement motor (RDM) is an open circuit piston motor offering reverse circuit functionality without external valves — an unprecedented hydraulic system solution for mobile equipment applications. With wider product options, the RDM can be designed to meet individual needs of customers, increasing function and value.
The RDM enables customers to achieve up to 10 percent power savings, a 15 percent average reduction in total system cost, and reduced system complexity.
