Bauma 2019: Digitization a central topic

Thinking ahead - Engine controls for construction and commercial vehicles

ehb electronics gmbh builds and supplies ingenious electrical components for this purpose which function safely even under strong shocks, vibrations and shocks and withstand harsh environmental environments. Digital services and cloud-based service offerings for the use of special vehicles and machines complement the company's comprehensive portfolio.

Operational readiness at any location at any time - this requirement applies in particular to the drive technology of construction and commercial vehicles. To achieve this optimum, ehb electronics in Langenhagen near Hanover develops engine controls for construction machinery, diesel generators, municipal emergency vehicles and special vehicles and machines. A core competence of the company lies in the development of machine control systems that are always one step ahead of current legislation and offer customers' products a unique selling point.

Optimized drive technology by intelligent control

The company has developed the ehb SMART product family for the optimum functionality of construction machinery: The core component is the MCflex motor control system. It offers the user a wide range of functions for controlling and monitoring conventional and electronically controlled diesel engines. The settings can be individually configured for a wide variety of applications and engine variants.

For monitoring, visualizing, operating and controlling applications via CANbus (SAE J1939), high-resolution displays with automatic adaptation of the backlight and a variety of functions have been developed. The ehb SMARTdisplay 70 has a capacitive touch screen and an intuitive graphical user interface without additional mechanical operating elements. All ehb SMARTdisplays can be perfectly read even in poor lighting conditions.

Theft Protection and Satellite Positioning and Predictive Maintenance

Real-time information on the location and operating conditions of their vehicles is essential, particularly for fleet operators and maintenance staff of mobile and stationary installations. The current location, monitoring and control of the systems is just as important as protection against misuse. With the ehb SMARTrmc (Remote Monitoring and Control System), ehb electronics has developed a compact and robust telemetry module that can monitor, record, report and, if necessary, trigger alarms for all information provided via the SAE J1939 CANbus.

The powerful 32-bit processor, integrated GSM modem and GPS receiver seamlessly connect to virtually any SAE J1939 CANbus device. In conjunction with the ehb SMARTcloud, all parameters can be displayed on a mobile phone, tablet or computer. Engine specific parameters can be monitored as well as GPS mapping information. Owners and end users are informed via voice message, SMS or e-mail about the current status of their machine and where it is located.

ehb electronics is ISO 9001:2015 certified. Every employee of ehb electronics gmbh continuously strives to optimize processes, products and procedures of the company. The basis for this is an unbureaucratic idea management. Through regular further training, the teams are supported in continuously analysing and optimising the quality of the entire supply chain.

Bernd Reinmold, Managing Director of ehb electronics gmbh, emphasizes: "Finding optimization potentials is a challenge that we face with passion. Our aim is to always set the limits of what is possible a little further in our cooperation with our customers. Today we can access more machine data than ever before in the development history of drive machines. The task now is to develop processes and products in which this data is used and exploited in order to further develop drive technologies in a sustainable way."

The ehb SMARTdisplay 70 offers a multitude of functions for monitoring, visualization, operation and control of applications with CANbus (SAE J1939).
