The combination of a widely used hardware system and a new technology specifically designed for Mecc Alte, the leading alternator supplier.
Innovation is supposed to solve the real needs that arise from daily work, and this is what Mecc Alte – the leading alternator producer based in Vicenza (Italy) – was looking for. Particularly, we were asked for a solution that would enable maintenance operators to monitor and modify the parameters of the alternators safely, keeping their procedure or hardware used nearly unchanged.
Mecc Alte was created in 1947 as an electric motor workshop. Over the years it has grown to produce over 1,400 alternators a day across the globe. It has become the world’s leading producer and the third largest in terms of turnover.
The control boards – the heart of every machine – communicate through the ModBus protocol. Mecc Alte control boards represent a competitive advantage for the company. Mecc Alte’s technology is reliable, operating, and it has been in use for years. The real challenge for our engineers was to have an “outdated” system communicate with an innovative app.
Improving an existing and operating technology through incremental innovation and revolutionizing the logic of an entire industry
