Minimize unexpected downtime and increase your efficiency with faster response

With DrivePro® Remote Monitoring, you will have a system that provides online information available for monitoring in real time, which makes is possible for you to react much faster to incidents where an AC drive is involved. This is possible due to the built-in alerting system that generates faults and warnings. Because you are immediately made aware of potential drive problems – even if you are not on-site – you can react equally quickly to avoid unexpected failures, minimize costly downtime, and eliminate disruption of your operations.

For expert users of this service, DrivePro® Remote Monitoring provides unrestricted access to all the data that has been collected from your drives. This is very useful for identifying adverse trends such as a slow increase in motor current over time, which may point to wear or lack of lubrication in the driven device.

DrivePro® Remote Monitoring also offers centralized backup and restore capabilities for all AC drives connected under this setup, as well as full visibility of and access to the entire connected drive asset, including drive firmware versions.

The DrivePro® Remote Monitoring service uses an always-on data connection to your AC drives to collect information about key parameters and fault events. The service monitors this information in real time and, if it sees a fault alert generated by the AC drive, it automatically emails you, so you know straight away there is a condition that needs your attention.

As a user of the DrivePro® Remote Monitoring service, you also have unrestricted access to all the data that has been collected from your AC drives. This can be very useful for identifying adverse trends such as a slow increase in motor current over time, which may point to wear or lack of lubrication in the driven device.


It is true that some benefits depend on having a log of AC drive history, but DrivePro® Remote Monitoring has a lot to offer from the very first day you use it. The fault monitoring and alerting service is operational right away, and as soon as the service is set up, you will have full visibility of drive firmware, application versions, and drive settings. This means AC drive hardware replacement can be semi-automated, should it ever be necessary.

And, if you need to replace an AC drive completely, all you will need to do is to connect it and supply its IP address. The DrivePro® Remote Monitoring service will then restore the parameters and settings, saving you a lot of time and effort. This is especially useful if you have a critical process that’s offline until the new AC drive is up and running.


Danfoss has implemented robust and extensive security measures for the DrivePro® Remote Monitoring service. The gateway device used to access the AC drives is invisible to anyone other than authorized users and access is only possible with the correct user account and password information. Access rights are managed with user profiles, and all data is robustly encrypted. Regular security updates are automatically installed on the gateways and the Danfoss servers, and overall system security is regularly audited.


The fee depends on several factors including the number of AC drives you have on your site. Your local Danfoss Drives sales office will be pleased to provide you with a quotation. To keep budgeting simple, however, Danfoss charges a fixed annual fee for the service.

It is also worth knowing that the DrivePro® Remote Monitoring service can be combined with other services in the DrivePro® Lifecycle portfolio, such as DrivePro® Start-up and DrivePro® Preventive Maintenance to put together an affordable package that exactly matches your needs.
