Together we define the problem and brainstorm on the different viable solutions.
First, we perform deep analysis and evaluate different possibilities in order to define prototypes and check for feasibility—then we define the MVP.
Creating smart and connected products gives you the opportunity to innovate your business models. We will help you think this through as well.
Having your first prototype allows you and us to do something crucial: test, learn and improve.
Firmware, Apps, SaaS, Cloud, or Cloud connectors – we can do it for you.
We create the design that fits best – attractive and functional designs incl. IP ratings where needed.
We take care of your product certification: CE RED, FCC, IC and Bluetooth compliance.
We can scale up, set up and run the manufacturing for you – Made in Germany.
We’ll be with you down the road when you need us to update, modify or create future products.
Our customer produces mobile tanks and fuel pumps for use on construction sites. The tanks are used to fuel up construction vehicles. There is no data on usage, fuel levels or anything else.
Gas and oil often get stolen (up to 10%), tanks removed or damaged. There is no knowledge of who is using the tank or which vehicle is being fueled.
aconno built a smart fuel control system, together with a mobile app and a cloud solution. Now only authorized staff can fuel and will detail the vehicle and the mileage that the fuel is used for. Via the app, the solution also reports back on fuel is taken and remaining fuel levels.
Now our partner can sell a complete solution – which is not only anti-theft, but also smart, delivering usage data to his customers – and the tanks are always refilled before they get empty.
Our customer produces classical motors for use in industrial environments and wants to monitor vibrations. By doing so, he’ll prevent great damage and standstill situation in the early phase.
If a motor breaks without early replacement, the production has a standstill. It’s better to understand potential stages by vibration monitoring.
aconno built a beacon that measures vibrations and patterns. By measuring and collecting data of good and faulty machines a set of parameters is defined. As soon as the beacon feels critical vibrations, it suggests the user what to do and what to check before a standstill occurs.
Within the test setup, we could identify faulty swings/vibrations with a 95% accuracy.
Now our customer can sleep peacefully knowing that aconno beacon will warn him if a motor experiences faulty vibrations that can cause the whole production to stop. You know the saying: Better safe than sorry!
The customer’s challenge was to help identify overheating in a pump early on and prevent it from happening. System users also need to be warned of the heat issue.
Preventive measures needed to be taken to avoid system damage.
aconno created a simple add-on device for the pump that warns on overheating via LED status. The device can also take more data on the machine like working hours and vibrations.
Failures from over-heating can be significantly reduced.
I reviewed the aconno ACD52832 as a prototyping solution to create IoT and Industry 4.0 applications – and I’m thrilled with what aconno has delivered!
Your ACN52832 module is a genius product. Super easy prototyping!
(Der ACN52832 Chip von euch ist ein geniales Produkt. Super leichtes Prototyping!)
The Sensa modules are definitely impressive because the connection is so easy and the results can be easily displayed in real time.
aconno made our ideas come to life when we didn’t even know whether that was possible. They combine curiosity with technology – and the outcomes are amazing!
