Danfoss has added to its digital service portfolio—Smart Refrigeration Solution, pioneering software originally developed by Honeywell. Smart Refrigeration Solution was created using customer requirements gathered from leading food retailers looking to reduce energy usage and improve performance of their refrigeration system.
Alsense is Danfoss’ sustainable, scalable and secure cloud-based portal for managing food retail operations. Previously known as Danfoss Enterprise Services (DES), Alsense is optimized to provide food retail professionals with transparency and executive overviews of refrigeration assets and energy efficiency at the chain level.
Going forward, the combined Alsense offering with Smart Refrigeration Solutions will enable managers to benchmark and prioritize efforts across stores to save time and optimize the impact of their maintenance spending. Further, Alsense will provide service technicians with a prioritized action plan, empowering them to immediately address equipment performance and operating concerns upon arrival at a store.
Combining the Smart Refrigeration Solution with the existing Alsense portfolio accelerates Danfoss’ ambition of meeting food retail customers’ needs for optimizing and proactively maintaining a store’s high performance. The solution goes beyond the traditional monitoring systems that primarily provide alarms and data overviews. It identifies operating issues, such as compressor failure or coil icing, and provides hands-on guidance to fix them.
This integration follows the October 2020 launch of Danfoss’ Alsense IoT platform and will accelerate Danfoss’ efforts in providing food retail professionals with intuitive software tools and data-driven, expert-enabled insights to optimize operational efficiency, refrigeration asset performance, and energy efficiency.
