Parker Hannifin Corporation, the global leader in motion and control technologies, announced the launch of Parker IQAN® Connect, the latest innovation in motion control. Using standard SAE J1939 protocol, IQAN Connect integrates Parker’s intelligent hydraulic components with electronic control hardware and software to create a seamless digital ecosystem. With IQAN Connect, development time is dramatically reduced, equipment performance is optimized and remote monitoring is simplified for OEMs and fleet managers.
For developers, IQAN Connect integrates hydraulic components and customizable software that deliver next-generation connectivity while providing flexibility in design. The system’s building-block approach reduces development times while enabling those without extensive programming skills to create advanced functions quickly and easily.
On the jobsite, IQAN Connect helps improve machine performance and productivity by recording and storing all data in the cloud. This information can be accessed instantly, allowing adjustments to machine operation to be made in real time. Assets are managed with live diagnostics to help reduce downtime, maximize return on investment, and improve safety and productivity.
“Our customers are looking for technologies to improve efficiency and reduce downtime,” said Jacob Haas, Vice President Marketing for the Hydraulics Group. “IQAN Connect leverages intelligent digital technology to keep machines operating at peak performance. Delivering this powerful system to our customers represents a tremendous breakthrough for our industry.”
IQAN Connect will be debuted at IFPE 2017, booth #S-80242, at the Las Vegas Convention Center, March 7-11, 2017. IFPE is co-located with CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2017, the largest international gathering place for the construction industries.
