Compact knowledge for your everyday work
Torque - The podcast driving you

Torque - The podcast driving you offers drive technology for the ears

In Torque - the podcast driving you, the first podcast about drive technology, specialist journalist Robert Weber talks to drive experts, plant operators, scientists and technicians about future technologies and the people who drive them forward. The episodes are all about innovative solutions for new and well-known applications, legal requirements for drive technology and new tasks for smart drive systems. From intelligent drives, artificial intelligence and machine learning to the European Green Deal and the challenges that a smart grid poses to modern drive technology: In more than 15 episodes so far, industry experts have evaluated technical developments and talked about the advantages and disadvantages of possible solutions.

Danfoss engineers Jörg Dannehl and Holger Schmidt kick things off in the very first episode of Torque – the drive podcast. They explain how a converter learns and what is changing in drive technology with condition-based monitoring. The idea: The frequency converter is getting smarter due to new developments and no longer only regulates the drive, but also detects errors. After commissioning, the intelligent converter learns the typical patterns of the system, defines the normal state and starts monitoring as soon as it has been trained with sufficient data. Listen to this or one of the other episodes and take new knowledge with you into your everyday work.

Digital transformation: with more intelligence to better solutions

Drives today are more than simple frequency controllers. In the drive train, they are characterized by high connectivity and are important elements in modern automation systems. They act as sensors and sensor hubs; they analyze, store and process data.

In Torque - the podcast driving you, drive experts discuss the role of drive technology in the digital transformation: How and why does a converter learn? What will drive the factory in the future? What role does OPC UA play in drive technology? A New Kind of Maintenance: What Intelligence Does Condition-Based Maintenance Require? The answers can be found in the individual episodes of Torque - the podcast driving you. Listen in.

Green Restart: energy efficiency, electrification and sustainability

Smart technologies for more energy efficiency, greater use of renewable energies in the industrial environment and the rapidly advancing electrification and hybridization offer important perspectives for efficient and sustainable economic activity. 

In Torque - the podcast driving you, drive experts discuss the role of drive technology for a green restart: How does an energy self-sufficient sewage treatment plant work? What does 'hybridization' actually mean in industry? And what will change with the next stages of the EU eco-design directive for engines? The answers can be found in the individual episodes of Torque - the podcast driving you. Listen in.
