Invitation to the Virtual Softing Automotive Convention | May 5-6, 2021

Invitation to the Virtual “Softing Automotive Convention” | May 5-6, 2021

Invitation to the Virtual Softing Automotive Convention on May 5-6, 2021 | Due to the severe restriction of personal contact options since last year, we had to completely rethink events and customer appointments. With a creative digitalization concept based on current technology, we have created a virtual space that offers us the ideal event location. It allows our customers and partners to experience software solutions and exhibits in the office or at home.

Softing Gains Softwarehelden as a Strategic Partner

The two Softing subsidiaries Globalmatix and Softing Automotive have today announced a strategic cooperation with digitalization experts Softwarehelden GmbH & Co. KG. In the past, the three companies have worked together on projects that have been implemented successfully and have now decided to bundle their core competencies in a cooperation. Customers will benefit from the perfect interaction of innovative hardware and intelligent software solutions.

Individual test equipment for maximum reliability in engineering and tests

Test Equipment by Softing

A large number of different cables, adapters and peripheral simulations are used in the engineering of vehicle electronics, the testing of electronic and electrical components and in component integration into the complete vehicle. The use of standard products is rarely possible here. Test equipment specially adapted to the control unit, vehicle series or test environment is nearly always required.

BODAS-service 4.x – More than Maintenance and Repair | powered by Softing TDX: Mobile working machinery is an important segment of the entire vehicle market. Typically the machinery requires hydraulic drive technology, especially axial piston units, which make displacement with high pressure possible. The operating and environmental conditions in this segment are much tougher than for standard motor vehicles.

Test Boards by Softing: Working as if you were working on a verhicle – but with full comfort!

Test Boards by Softing

A range of original components can be conveniently attached and connected to each other on test boards according to their target arrangement in the vehicle. This is the perfect way to subject, in particular, the cable harness and ECUs to complex networking and function tests in conjunction with real sensors, actuators and other subsystems. Test boards thus enable flexible tests for series validation – long before tests are possible on real vehicles.

The Machine Has To Work!

Technical Article: The Machine Has To Work!

After-sales service provides service networks for vehicles and machinery – often on a world-wide scale. These generally pursue one goal: to reduce downtimes and thus the total cost of ownership (TCO). The core business includes fast, targeted maintenance and repair. This not only requires the use of an efficient repair shop tester, but also places special demands on its worldwide availability and updatability via a modern back end.

Non-Identical Twins: Repair Shop Diagnostics and Authorization Management

There are tens of thousands of individual repair shop testers in the field today. On top of that, they are deployed all over the world by different users with different requirements and authorizations. Improper handling can lead to serious damage. This multi-user scenario can only be mastered with an appropriate allocation of tester functions and central administration. Integrated authorization management fits into the core processes and, furthermore, offers additional security.

SAVE THE DATE – 14th Conference on Diagnostics

SAVE THE DATE – Softing Diagnostic Convention 2020

On October 12, 2020, we are opening the doors of our virtual showroom for the very first time. This way we will have no trouble in bringing technical presentations as well as our solutions and exhibits to your office or home. We would be very pleased to be able to welcome you to our first event on virtual ground, the Softing Diagnostic Convention 2020!

Softing envisions secure, reliable predictive maintenance

TOHE Article 08/2020 Softing envisions secure, reliable predictive maintenance

Modern heavy-duty vehicles, such as trucks and buses but also forestry and agricultural machines or construction equipment, are packed with E/E components that support selfdiagnostic functions and increase the quality of maintenance, service, and repair processes. In service workshops, “right the first try” reduces expensive downtime and saves a lot of money. This objective is supported by a process that captures the already generated in-vehicle data and sends it to a cloud server for analysis and the creation of vehicle- and/or fleet-specific predictive maintenance sequences. The sequences support the service technician in the predictive maintenance process
