Danfoss adds Honeywell’s predictive maintenance

DENMARK: Danfoss has strengthened its Alsense IoT retail service platform with the incorporation of Honeywell’s predictive Smart Refrigeration Solution. 

Honeywell’s solution goes beyond traditional monitoring systems, that primarily provide alerts and alarms, by identifying operating issues and providing actionable insights to fix them.

Commenting on the service, Jürgen Fischer, president of Danfoss Cooling, said: “We are now putting predictive maintenance into action allowing the food retail industry to prevent unplanned cooling system downtime and inefficiencies in energy consumption.”

“Combining the Smart Refrigeration Solution with our existing Alsense portfolio accelerates our ambition of meeting food retail customers’ needs for optimising and proactively maintaining a ­high store performance,” added Natalie Schnippering, head of product management digital services at Danfoss. “The solution goes beyond the traditional monitoring systems that are primarily providing alarms and data overviews. It identifies operating issues, such as compressor failure or coil icing, and provides hands-on guidance to fix them.”

Alsense provides food retail professionals with transparency and executive overviews of refrigeration assets and energy efficiency at the chain level. Going forward, Danfoss says the combined Alsense offering will enable managers to easily benchmark and prioritise efforts across stores to save time and optimise the impact of their maintenance spend. Alsense will also provide service technicians with a prioritised action plan, enabling them to immediately address equipment performance and operating concerns upon arrival at a store.

The step follows the launch of the Danfoss’ Alsense IoT platform in October, an updated and enhanced version of its former Danfoss Enterprise Services (DES) business to create what it describes as a more sustainable, scalable and secure cloud-based portal for managing food retail operations.
