Danfoss PLUS+1® – fast integration of electric actuators into heavy-duty machinery

LINAK®-Danfoss® collaboration makes it possible for engineers to add electric actuators when designing intelligent off-highway vehicles and other heavy-duty vehicles.


What is Danfoss PLUS+1?

The PLUS+1 is a unique system development platform or tool for engineers, who design intelligent off-highway vehicles for harsh environments. Through an intuitive programme interface called PLUS+1® GUIDE, the design engineer can use it to add, move, drag, and drop all components and parts necessary to meet the requirements of a modern vehicle.

Adding a specially tailored compliance block to the Danfoss PLUS+1 platform allows engineers, who are working with all sorts of heavy-duty machinery, to include electric actuators when designing applications.


Saving time during the design phase

Through a close collaboration between the two industry segments LINAK TECHLINE® and Danfoss Power Solutions, a new extension to the Danfoss PLUS+1 development tool enables engineers to add electric actuators when designing intelligent off-highway vehicles and other heavy-duty machinery.

Many engineers designing heavy-duty machinery for construction, mobile agriculture and outdoor power equipment use the Danfoss PLUS+1 platform during the design phase.

Through a series of compliance blocks, the platform allows engineers without any expertise in software development to select, drag, and drop components when they design new machinery.

Almost as easy as plug and play

The interface holding the components together is called PLUS+1 GUIDE. It is a development tool owned by Danfoss Power Solutions, which allows the user to combine graphic symbols and components and create the complete software vehicle control systems. This kind of modular programming offers the development engineer far more options and makes it possible to create optimum solutions much faster than usual.


A quick way to add electric actuators

Already fully compatible with CAN bus systems (via CAN SAE J1939), LINAK actuators are easy to integrate when modern vehicles require a durable movement/adjustment solution. Combined with decades of experience in making solutions for systems operating in harsh environments, LINAK brings the most tried-and-tested technology to the Danfoss PLUS+1 platform.

'We are experiencing a growth in the market of electric movement solutions in mobile agriculture, industrial automation, material handling and even in construction. Enabling development engineers to easily pick and choose electric actuators from inside the Danfoss PLUS+1 system makes so much sense – not only for us, LINAK and Danfoss – but certainly also for the customers and engineers who use the tool.'
Thomas Moeller, Applications Engineer at LINAK, TECHLINE
