In the field of construction machinery, we work with the world’s leading manufacturers and suppliers. Robustness, reliability and the automation of work processes make heavy demands on control and networking as well as operating and diagnostic tasks in construction machines.
Sontheim is specialized in solutions in the field of mobile automation, diagnostics and connectivity for construction machinery for almost two decades and offers a comprehensive portfolio. Here we can also include our in-depth knowledge from the agricultural sector, since there are often overlaps and similar requirements in both areas.
Manufacturers of construction machinery benefit among others from our modern control technologies. These are specially designed for a daily use under the harshest conditions and are accordingly protected against vibrations, shock and temperature fluctuations. With a protection classification of up to IP69K, it promises extensive protection against salt, fog and water jet effects. In addition to normal controls, we also have functional safety controls up to ASIL-C in our portfolio in accordance with ISO 26262 and with AUTOSAR.
An individual adaptation and scalability is guaranteed and up to 89 IOs are available. Our portfolio also includes sensors for the acquisition of data, as well as displays and terminal solutions for operating machines and evaluating status information such as alarm messages or targeted diagnostic information from the system.
We offer OEMs a comprehensive diagnostic portfolio based on the latest industry standards such as ODX according to ISO 22901-1 and OTX according to ISO 13209 as well as an MCD-3D server. Our products are extremely performant and platform-independent. A diagnosis is therefore possible on a PC, laptop, mobile device or embedded, directly in the vehicle. RMI information and other EU guidelines can also be handled with our tools.
