PRECO Electronics is exhibiting at bauma 2019.

Bringing fleet safety solutions to the worldwide platform of the construction industry, PRECO's latest innovations represent what is to come in the future of proximity detection, machine awareness technology, and automation.

Working with many of the world's top Original Equipment Manufacturers, PRECO's proximity detection systems have been installed on heavy-duty equipment worldwide for more than a decade. Leading engineering and electronics companies are also integrating PRECO's future-ready radar sensors with other technologies to further advance safety.

PRECO has announced its integration partnership with Danfoss Power Solutions. The partnership with Danfoss introduces the software integration of PRECO's perception radar sensors and Danfoss's PLUS+1 Platform to OEMs and integrators. "We are excited to be working with Danfoss to bring our customers the ability to combine PRECO's PreView Radar sensors with intelligent awareness and controller applications on the Danfoss platform," Tom Loutzenheiser, PRECO's vice president of Business Development said.

"This partnership is an opportunity to broaden the utilization of PRECO's intelligent solutions as an improvement to safety automation systems. Together we are making it easier and faster for heavy-duty customers to build control and automation applications taking advantage of sensor fusion, using Danfoss's intelligent controllers."

As proximity detection adoption within heavy-duty industries spreads across the globe, warning systems have advanced with the integration of intelligent technologies, propelling the industry in the direction of safety automation. PRECO's proximity detection systems, long available as solutions for blind spot object detection, are also the industry's choice for automated 360-degree solutions using sensor fusion.

"Danfoss is excited to continue building on our ‘open' strategy for the PLUS+1 platform by introducing this integration with PRECO Electronics," Kevin Faulds, Danfoss's director of Software Marketing said. "This type of open collaboration will help our OEM and distribution partners develop systems even faster."

With partners and dealers around the world, PRECO works to mitigate the broad and complex safety issues facing heavy-duty industries. In recognition of the need for safety systems, PRECO provides PreView Sentry and Side Defender, the premiere solutions to rear and side collision mitigation. As the global leader in heavy-duty safety, PRECO Electronics partners with other industry leaders working for the future of automation.
