Brand partners in the industrial field
One of our brands, AEG, has a long heritage within the industrial field. Next year, the brand will celebrate 130 years of existence and its famous for its German engineering worldwide. The brand stands for innovation and new technologies, something we see in all of the industrial brand partners portfolios. For example we have brand partners in the electric component business, doing switches, control units and meters worldwide. Maybe you are one of those having AEG branded fuses in your home steering the electricity in your house? We also have a brand partner in China doing bigger installations of circuit breakers for factories and commercial buildings.
Electric power distribution from the production source to the sockets in your housed is in many cases managed and helped by AEG technology. For buildings where an uninterrupted power supply is important such as hospitals, airports, military installations, IT server rooms etc. AEG installations are one of the most advanced technologies used.
The AEG brand is also used for value added integrator tailor-made solutions encompassing radio and voice infrastructure for police forces and fire brigades.
Very often, but less visible, construction cranes and excavators are using AEG branded electric energy efficient motors. Talking about energy efficiency, we are also present in the photovoltaic solar industry having partners selling highly advanced solar panels to commercial solar installations. Sustainable solutions and technologies are supported by several of our brand partners and is supporting the Electrolux vision of being the leader in green technology.
Another technology developed and performed by AEG is advanced RFID applications. Radio-frequency identification (RFID) uses electromagnetic fields to automatically identify and track tags attached to objects. The tags contain electronically stored information. Passive tags collect energy from a nearby RFID reader's interrogating radio waves. Active tags have a local power source such as a battery and may operate at hundreds of meters from the RFID reader. Unlike a barcode, the tag need not be within the line of sight of the reader, so it may be embedded in the tracked object. RFID can be used for applications such as animal identification, industrial production monitoring, food processing industry control, brewery keg tracing, access control and more.
Among our industrial brand partners, we also find our brands Frigidaire, White-Westinghouse and Electrolux used for major climate control installations, heating and air-conditioning, in commercial buildings such as hotels, offices, manufacturing plants and shopping malls.
