If you’re looking to realize untapped potential in your systems with intelligence, you know that adding more intelligence often means adding more components, sensors and complexity. Danfoss intelligent drives can act as your smartest IoT sensor without the complexity. Our intelligent drives gather data from multiple sources by leveraging internal and external sensors. They use intelligence on the edge to generate valuable insights and send actionable data to the cloud or on-premises system, so it can be distributed where it’s needed. Our drives work with any platform and application, enabling predictive maintenance to increase performance, efficiency and uptime while lowering complexity.

Cloud and advanced analytics

Cloud and advanced analytics

To meet ever-changing customer and application specific needs, Danfoss intelligent drives connect with any cloud or analytics platform to bring intelligence, as well as condition-based and predictive maintenance, to the entire system. Want to hear more?

Higher data security

Higher data security

By applying intelligence close to the data source and processing data on the edge, intelligent drives increase data protection. They avoid the transmission of raw data to the cloud, on-premises data-storage or automation system, which reduces the amount of data at risk of interception or compromise.

Reduced investment

Reduced investment

You can use the drive as a smart hub for external sensors, such as vibration sensors and pressure sensors, to enable condition-based monitoring and process control. As you only need one drive to create a hub, you can avoid spending on additional sensors and gateways.

Lower data cost

Lower data cost

Streaming and processing raw data in the cloud can be costly. Distributing intelligence and processing data on the edge means you can send pre-processed data, which reduces bandwidth and simplifies data analysis in the cloud.

Open and independent

Open and independent

Our drives work with any kind of motor technology, no matter whether it’s an induction, permanent magnet, or reluctance motor. You have the freedom to choose the best motor technology for your application. And you’ll be able to run the motor at maximum efficiency and performance.
