IoT sensor solution from H & D Wireless selected by Scania for monitoring factory lifting equipment

Nasdaq First North Growth Market listed H & D Wireless AB, has entered into a 12-month agreement with Scania for IoT services. Since June 2017, H & D Wireless has pilot installations at Scania Smart Factory, where new systems for factory digitization are evaluated. Now the collaboration advances into a new phase where H & D Wireless will deliver Raven IoT Sensor BOX827 solution as a product with associated NB-IoT cellular service to Scania's factory in Södertälje.

Scania has thousands of material handling equipment in the entire factory area. With Raven IoT sensor BOX827 from H & D Wireless, Scania can now measure the real use per each lifting machine. This allows the service organization to greatly reduce costs, as they only need to inspect machines that have reached the appropriate threshold of operating hours before carrying out maintenance service. The lifting gear usage is monitored and presented with the help of Griffin Visualizer. The deployment of BOX827 is enormously facilitated by use of the new NB-IoT cellular standard, which does not require any additional installation of infrastructure at Scania factory for communication with the IoT sensor. The length of current contract is 12 months with the possibility of annual extension thereafter. Starting with an initial order under 50KSEK for the first batch of sensors the number is expected to increase gradually over time.

"H & D Wireless is a strategic partner for Scania Smart Factory. Raven IoT Sensor BOX827 gives us better control of how we use our material lifting equipment. The main benefit is that we are able to plan maintenance only when needed and be more efficient. We can do it in a simple way without having to invest in any additional on-site infrastructure." says Lars Hanson of Scania Smart Factory Lab.

"We are in an exciting phase of our collaboration with Scania Smart Factory Lab, where Raven IoT sensor will be installed in both Lab and Factory for concept tests." says Pär Bergsten, CEO and founder of H & D Wireless.

Raven IoT sensor BOX827 is a solution that can be easily applied to machines or tools for monitoring their health, uptime, interval to next service with cloud analysis for predictive maintenance. The sensor requires no local infrastructure installation such as WiFi or BT because it uses the new IoT M2M cellular standard LTE-M and NB-IoT being provided by mobile operators like Telia and Telenor. It is offered together with Griffin® IoT Cloud for remote sensing applications or GEPS® which additionally provides location or positioning information (e.g. machines or tools on construction sites). Alternatively Raven IoT sensor BOX827 can be linked to another standard cloud solution that the customer selects, for example Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services or Google Cloud.
