More complex systems and the electrification of loads currently play a decisive role in the development of onboard electrical systems of industrial vehicles. The CANbus as a standard field bus in the vehicle industry is the ideal technology to enable fast and uncomplicated data transmission.
The SCS Smart Control Systems portfolio developed by E-T-A unites intelligent power distribution and IO modules with the ability to communicate via CAN. The company’s products enable the digitalization of the vehicle electrical system as well as the processing and analysis of status data. The SCS family is used to implement centralized and decentralized system architectures, enabling customers to save space and reduce wiring effort. By providing diagnostic information, SCS products make a decisive contribution to system transparency and reduced complexity.
To gain maximum reliability of system components, machine learning, system identification and pattern recognition methods can be applied to detect fault events in load circuits and gradual malfunction of components.
Based on intelligent power distribution units like SCS products with comprehensive diagnostic capabilities, customized solutions of refined and decentralized condition monitoring as well as predictive maintenance and load management concepts can be realized.
