Electrical equipment specialist Pfannenberg is unveiling a thermal management solution with cloud-based remote monitoring at this year’s SPS IPC Drives in Nuremberg, Germany. Communication is provided by a compact device with an integrated SIM card, which receives the relevant data from the connected cooling units via Modbus and transmits it to the cloud over a secure mobile telecommunication link without any need for access to the company's IT infrastructure. The solution developed in cooperation with Telekom Deutschland GmbH enables users or systems to retrieve status data, diagnostic information and alarm notifications from the cooling units, live and independent of location, through a web browser, or to integrate the data directly into their applications. From 24 to 26 November visitors have the opportunity to see a working model on display at Stand 339 in Hall 5, and discuss this innovative thermal management solution with experts from Pfannenberg to learn more about its functionality and deployment options.

“The smart factory is the wave of the future. As an innovative medium-size company with over 190 patents worldwide, making our cooling solutions fit for networked products is a natural choice”, says Andreas Pfannenberg, Managing Director of the Pfannenberg Group. “With the premium controllers of the newest generation, our cooling units are able to provide a wealth of relevant data. Thanks to the cloud solution, employees in production management, the service department or the maintenance department, as well as higher-level monitoring systems, receive information about possible malfunctions or imminent failures promptly, wherever they are. This enables them to respond quickly before a serious incident occurs, which helps increase machine availability.”
